Podcast Player – Free Feature Idea

You want to take money from me? Here’s the idea (I’m looking at you Downcast and Overcast!).

During a podcast, passively listen for the words Audiobook or Audible and then for 10-20 words around that trigger term.

Search combinations of those words against an Audible search API to see if there is a book.

If you find a hit, note the time stamp and name of the podcast and send that back to the Audible API so that it knows there is a mention of this book at this podcast at this time.

The podcast app can send now present me with a link to the book so that I can grab it from Audible.
I’m so screwed if this feature gets implemented.
