Forward/Back Buttons In App Don't Work - IOS

magnumchode 2 years ago in iOS • updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 2 years ago 4

I just moved from Android to IOS & the functionaility either seems to be different or broken in IOS for the Forward/Back buttons. In the past, these buttons would advance through my favorite stations. Now when I press the buttons when a station is playing the internal app sound (what sounds like a ball bouncing) plays & the current stream just restarts. I did just upgrade to Pro thinking that maybe this was a Pro-only feature but it does the same thing in Pro & the free version of the app.


This is on an iPhone 6S/IOS 9.1. XiiaLive version 1.2.0.


Thanks guys!

Hey, thanks for the bug reported. This is actually a functionality that we didn't get to implement yet. As your findings below, the prev/next works on the current media playlist. We will make favorites as the default behavior and will add an option under settings as we have on Android to choose which behavior is wanted.

Same problem on an Android version. it is happen randomly. Sometimes it restarts, sometimes it stops for no reason

Hey could you post a new question with details about the issues you are having on Android? :) Thanks!

I played around with this some more & have more info.


I created a playlist that has my four main stations I listen to in it, copied it to my phone & opened it with a file explorer app which allowed me to then open it in XiiaLive. All four stations were present in the playlist now & hitting the back/forward buttons advances through the playlist. So from what I can tell, in IOS the back/forward buttons advance through the playlist whereas in Android it advances through the favorites (or maybe both if there are multiples entries in the playlist?). The workaround is better than nothing but still sucks because if I ever manually play a station from my favorites I have to go through all these hoops to get my playlist loaded again.
