I don't mean to disrespect the request at all - it's currently the most-requested feature on that uservoice page, so clearly you're not alone in wanting it, and I'm all about the Will of the People.

But can I ask why? I get why it's important in hour-long podcast episodes (and I just noticed this morning that the 8.1 podcast app implements it, which is nice), but I've never felt the need to skip forward within a song I was listening to. Skip to the next song? Sure, all the time - but I've never thought, "Ugh, this verse is boring, the next one's WAY better, ARGH."

Obviously, I'm being facetious - but seriously, I'm completely missing the point of the request.

There was a time when there were no decent apps for playing back Audiobooks so that was ONE reason why a seek bar (and maybe bookmarking?!) would have been hugely helpful. There still aren't any that are as simple as drag-dropping the audio files (you have to use RSS or transfer the files from OneDrive). I can imagine listening to recorded lectures, for example, would pose a similar problem.

Pretty much any situation in which you find yourself dealing with relatively large/long audio files.
