I'll be posting a link to a tutorial page how to use the Open APIs. They are essentially Broadcast Intents to control streaming and also to get currently streaming information. This allows other developers to build their own widgets or possibly integrate APIs to their existing applications such as an Alarm Clock.
Open APIs Beta description and java file can be found here:

If you find it difficult to understand or have some suggestions please let us know! :)
Would be really cool to have Tasker integration.
If you are a developer you are more than welcome to use the APIs and add support for xiialive :)
still no large screen support :(
I added the support for the larger screen but than realized how distorted the whole player looked. Didn't have enough time to resolve that. Will have this supported on the next update hopefully sometime February.
2.1.6 = broken tversity streams. Restoring via Titanium backup to 2.1.5 and my streams work again. Under 2.1.6, connection, buffering, connection dropped
Is tversity a music file streamer? What exactly broke? You can't stream at all? Please let us know more details... Maybe you can start a new thread for this particular issue. Thanks! :)
Either the shortcuts are not in the paid version or I cannot find how to create one from a favorite ?
Long press your home screen and select shortcuts, scroll down till you see XiiaLive. Click there and it will allow you to create a shortcut.
Do you guys stream bubba the love sponge show ? If yes , what is the channel please . Thank you
