Hello,
Just recently, my PSD menu lost a few options, including the "play something I like" one which I really liked.

I just want to be sure that it's a real change and not my app making a bad joke to me...

Can anybody confirm this option is gone (so I shall mourn it)?

Thanks.

Edit : well, the option went on again a few hours ago. Was it a login problem (though I checked)?

When I close the app, it does not stop. The RP logo remains on the task bar at the top of my screen. The only way to make it go away is to go into Settings -> Apps and FORCE STOP the RP app.

I've had this problem with the RP app on two Android phones. Is there a setting that I'm missing? I've never had a problem with an app not properly shutting down when I close it.

Hi Bill,
Loving flac on android! The leap in sound quality is superb. Odd thing though, the app seens to be refusing to show artist and track info like it used to. Any thoughts or suggestions much appreciated. No big deal cos' the fab tunes are keeping me distracted in the meantime. Goodness, your taste in music is exemplary!

No limits. By default, cache blocks will only download via WiFi. Perhaps there was a network issue?

Very sorry about the outage. For some reason this stuff always happens while I'm asleep or something.

Should be all better now.

After installing and reinstalling and being able to log in, the same problem every time. Three songs (by Greg Kihn, the Santana Brothers, and Mojave) keep playing over and over again after reinstallation.  Have wiped every cache clean that I can find.  Have changed location for cache in phone. The app says that it is playing LIve Stream, but the same songs keep coming up, over and over.

Love the app and am an annual supporter for several years. Today, I can't seem to download any cache blocks without getting the error "could not retrieve offline list" Bill can you kick the server again?

Hi RP
just want to let you know how much we enjoy the Android app! Installed it a couple of days ago on our Minix U9-H which is connected to our TV set.
The accompanying slideshows are absolutely stunning and most entertaining ;-)
Having said that, we were wondering how it's done... {#Curtain} How does the connection between artist name/song title and slideshow pictures work?
Is that a secret you gals/guys would be willing to share?
Have a great sunday, cheers from North Jutland/Denmark!

Tap PSD, then select 'sync to live stream'.

I know, not as intuitive as it could be. It's hard working with the limited screen real estate...

This isn't as much a reply as it is a hijack to say how much I enjoy the new flac option. With my LG V10 plugged into the music machinery here, the difference was profound. Thank you Bill and whoever else worked on this. RP just took a big leap ahead.

If you're not a premium member, get down off your camel and cough up some shekels to support this effort.
I have no other interest other than being a satisfied customer for nigh on 15 years now, and an admirer of the lost art of radio programming. RadioParadise deserves your support.

Seriously guys, you can't write an app that downloads this much data over mobile connection. There has to be some thorough safeguard for that.

I was lucky, since it was beginning of the month, so I'll have save now for the rest of the month, but we have huge overcharges on data tariffs here in Europe, this would have seriously hurt.

The reason seems to be that I played around with the cache a few weeks back. Since it would not download properly, I experimentally set it to "download 12h of music". When I started the app today while on the mobile network, it downloaded 12 hours or 600 megs of RP.

I love RP, so I hope you get this fixed. I'd really like to continue listening.
 
Sorry. As with any app that's capable of large data transfers, you need to be careful when changing settings to allow the use of cell data.

I'd suggest leaving the live stream options set to a minimal cache (< 30 min), and keep the cell bitrate low. Then grab a couple of larger cache blocks (without enabling the 'use cell data' option) for use when you're offline for extended periods.

As for preventing the app from doing large cache downloads via cell data, sometimes that's exactly what some users (I'm one) want to do. I generally have several unused gigs of cell data each month, so I'll sometimes load large cache blocks via cell. Perhaps we could add an additional warning message in those circumstances. I use an app (Xfinity StreamTV) that does that.

Just fixed a server issue. Both the Android & iOS apps were failing when set to the lowest bitrate. Very sorry about that. Should be OK now.
