For apps that download audio, the popup box during download is large and blocks most of the phone screen. Since this box may be on 5-10 seconds, some users may get distracted. It would be much more user friendly if the download process could be indicated by an animated down arrow perhaps in the upper right corner of the text screen, or the Title bar. Or the play button could change to a animated down arrow until the download completes, then back to the pause symbol.
This would allow users to read the text, while they wait for the audio to start playing.
Thanks for improving SAB apps. -rg
