Recording

Anonymous 8 years ago • updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 8 years ago 1
Any chance we could record streams on wi-fi for later playback to avoid data usage charges? This seems to be about the only major function missing from this great app!
Answer
Jona (Lead Developer) 8 years ago
Caching radio stations for later listening would be great. We would like to do it but since we are partnered with SHOUTcast there are some legal guidelines we need to follow. Part of those guidelines are not to record the broadcast content. We currently have a few ideas that could in some way resolve the issues you mentioned, we are left to present them to SHOUTcast for approval.

It would be great if an Equalizer was added.

Anonymous 9 years ago • updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 5 years ago 6
What really would be great is that you add a Equalizer to the programe. I have a headphone that needs some other settings that standard. Please add this!

Android 2.2 and higher now supports EQ. In the future we will be providing a more advanced set of options.

How about shortcuts to a specific favorite stations?

Anonymous 9 years ago • updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 7 years ago 5
I would love to see shortcuts to my favorite stations. That way, I could have a collection of shortcuts such that with one tap I could start listening to specific stations while driving.

Thank you!
Answer
Jona (Lead Developer) 7 years ago
Favorites shortcuts are available for paid version.

To add a shortcut:
1. Long press the home screen and hit shortcuts.
2. Find xiialive favorites icon and press it. That will take you to the favorites list.
3. Choose the station you like and a bottom edit box will show to allow you to change the title of the shortcut.
4. Click accept and that's it!

HTC Wildfire stutters audio when screen locks.

ChrusG 8 years ago • updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 5 years ago 52
My HTC Wildfire slows down the cpu when the screen locks, which causes the audio to stutter. But I still would like to "lock" the screen so as not to accidentally touch it. Also dim or turn off the screen backlight to save battery too if possible?

I'm officially closing this bug. We have tried various ways to make this work and its just a device problem. Also, the latest release of XiiaLive v3.2.0 no longer supports this device. We now support Android 2.3 and greater. Sorry for any inconvenience it might cause some of you.

It would be cool if I could just find the album on the amazon store with a single click from the tagged tracks list.

Add capability to work as a media app with Android Auto

I use Android Auto app while driving, (https://www.android.com/auto/) They have the ability to add Media Apps, of which there are a lot. Would be nice if XiiaLive was one of them.

Application does not display properly on screens with increased DPI

DrMacinyasha 8 years ago • updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 7 years ago 9
If one increases their screen's DPI by editing the ro.sf.lcd_density entry (to 200 from 240 in my case) within /system/build.prop, the application does not show properly, as seen here:

Answer
Jona (Lead Developer) 7 years ago
Thanks for the feedback! How are other apps showing? Same issue? We have tested on some emulators with a particular normal screen size but higher dpi and ran into similar issues. We believe this is something to do with Android specifications: http://developer.android.com/guide/practices/screens_support.html#range

Regardless we definitely need to dive in to the layout issues and understand why things are working like they are now...

Update 11/02/11:
Issue has been resolved in current version of XiiaLive.

Shortcut to "Favorites" from Player screen

Sascha Zimmer 7 years ago • updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 5 years ago 8
With the latest version (I assume it's v3) came a big disadvantiage in the new layout: Now you have to swipe the bar on top to the extreme right to get the button for the Favourites. This is a very annoying. In the old version, there was a button on the player stream that led directly to Favorites. I like the new design, nevertheless I will switch back to the older one, wich is unfortunate of course. But this bug is unnerving.
Answer
Jona (Lead Developer) 5 years ago

Thanks a lot for your feedback. As you might noticed on recent releases we moved the favorites page to be on the left of the player and history to the right o fit.


FAVORITES | PLAYER | HISTORY


We took your recommendation and came up with that simple solution. Now it is a swipe away or a button press on the menu bar to get to favorites.
