Even since Winamp updated recently it keeps losing my last position.  I listen to a lot of podcasts which are an hour or more it is gettinga bit annoying that Winamp keeps going back to the beginning of tracks when i close and re-open the app.

Previously I could close Winamp, mount my SD card, even reboot and Winamp would remember my last position on a track.  Now if I pause the track with my bluetooth headset it will sometimes goes back to the start of a track and certainly if I mount my card to add files or reboot.
Is this feature now only available in their paid version?  I can't see it mentioned in their list of paid features.

I could never get Winamp for Android to work well with podcasts.

I switched over to using BeyondPod and have never looked back.

dontpanic42: I could never get Winamp for Android to work well with podcasts.

I find downloading direct to my phone to be painfully slow.  I still get all my shows through iTunes and use SyncToy to transfer them to my phone. 
I used to find Winamp to be pretty reliable but now it seems to have memory issues and it seems odd that they are trying to sell me a full pro version about the same time as this started happening.
