BīngXiāngTiē now plays audio! After you complete any sentence the audio for that sentence is streamed off of ChinesePod and played for you as if the instructor was standing in the room right next to you!

OK, that's a bit of an exaggeration. But it's cool.

Note that it streams so you need a live connection to the interwebs. I'd say that I did this to protect CPod content, but it was really just much easier to code as a streaming element than a media player.

One other thing: I changed the names of the offline files (to make my life easier, again) so you'll have to regrab any lessons. But I made the input to grabbing lessons more tolerant. For example, you can now copy the entire URL into there ( and it will work.

Lastly, you'll notice I left the January 11th version on my SkyDrive as well as the current version. This helps to guarantee that updates don't break you because you can always redownload the old one : )

As always,
