I use this app in the car. When I turn the engine off and remove the key, the bluetooth disconnects. I'd expect this to close the app.

Instead, it stays on my notifications as 'paused'. This caused another problem - after finishing work hours later I try to get back but with the BBC using temporary hashes on their streams this doesn't work. So I have to do a manual stop, wait a bit, then restart.

So there's a couple of requests here:

1. Have an option for closing the app completely on bluetooth disappearing.

2. Even if the station is in 'paused' state, after a short period of time reload the playlist and get the latest hash.

Thanks for a great app, far better than how TuneIn have ruined theirs with this social networking malarkey!

Ah! Ok, perfect. Thanks for clarifying this. Yes, this seems like an issue. You should be able to swipe away the notification when playback is stopped.

Hey thanks for the feedback. Please take a look at the following cool BT feature we already have available. :)

Hi,

No - it doesn't work like that.

It does stop playback when the BT disconnects with this options. However I can't swipe the notification off (it's persistent) until I press stop again, which makes me suspect it's still going.

If I leave it for a few hours then press play from this persistent notification then I can't reconnect to the BBC stream, due to them invalidating the URL you originally fetched from the playlist.

So what I really need is a *full* stop on BT disconnect, which closed the app totally, or for the app to refetch the URL from the playlist if a given amount of time has passed since playback was paused/stopped.

Ta,

Sean

Thank you!

I'd rather have an option to just close the app completely though - then it'd come on when I get in the car, and disappear when I get out.

Thanks again - superb app, far better at actual streaming than the competition!
Yeah, I was thinking to simply remove notifications once playback is stopped via bluetooth. Thanks for sharing.
Just to add even if at this point it might not be related. I reinstalled the app, and now it does seem to close when i leave the car, however it just crashes completely.
Oh, yeah crash is not good. Could you reproduce the crash and then trigger a bug report by going into XiiaLive -> settings "Bug report" Thanks!

I bought the app a few days ago and this bug still exists! It's really annoying because the app stays in the notifications and you manually have to press stop before you can swipe it away. This happens every time I was in the car. Shouldn't be that much of a problem to close the app (and primarily close the notification part) when the bluetooth connection is lost!
Please do something about it, this is really annoying!
