Pinyin Only

Is there a way to switch Chinesepod to Pinyin only? I am not interested in learning characters as speaking is more relevant to my job!

Hey. Yeah I would like this too. 

But for now on the iPad what I do is I use the text version option. It loads fast and has the pinyin and the whole dialogue easily accessible. 

Then I click play on just the dialogue and basically loop it. 

Be nice for a loop function on the website for the dialogue. 

If you use an iPad when the audio finishes and your using headphones you can click the headphone button and it will play again. 

I love the cp app and all the options it has but for dialogues this is how I study. Seems fastest for me.

The PDFs have whole dialogues in pinyin, is that what you are looking for?

Yeah, but the problem is it also has the english right next to it. I can't help but read it on accident. Hopefully they'll impliment changes sometime soon. Thanks for the responses!
