Discussion on Radio App for iPhone iOS5

Streaming do not resume after incoming call, App do not switch quality depending to internet channel speed. Are there any way to create quality switcher?

I duplicate my mail to support, i think it will be better for all :)

1) Today i test it in 3G then drive my car, if connection lost app do not restore connection. How to improve it? Maybe you have script to auto reconnect every 2-4 second after loosing connection?

2) How to move play pause button to center and make it much bigger? I have moved button which activate play/pause but can’t find how to move animation and make it bigger. In the bottom i want to leave only volume control.

3) How to delete youtube bottom from the bar?

4) How create offline html page instead of online, i have do apps with phonegap in HTML5 and i want to make some fun animation pages inside app in offline mode.

Thank you :)

Dear 3elen

Sorry, there´s no way to change the quality, because not every stream support this. 1) I´m working on a improved update, which supports this… 2) This is a template and it´s not made for “special wishes” like this. When you want we can talk about a freelance project per mail 3+4) see point 2

Hi BlackDrop, great product, well documented code – gave me a good headstart into my project.

I could get the app to resume after an interruption through an incoming call by implementing the respective parts from another product here on code canyon:

A bigger problem was the player not reconnecting after a low buffer situation e.g. when switching from wifi to 3G or when switching to airplane mode and back. Most of the time you had to kill the app to get it going again which was a no go for me. I solved this in a way which should be OK for most users: I placed a reload button next to the volume-bar which forces a reconnect when the buffering hangs/fails. At the same time it checks the connection type and switches to a lower-quality-stream if on 3G.

So my app’s ready for app store submission, hope it works out fine. If you will fix those bugs for other users it would be great. Keep up the good work. :)

Best regards from Munich,

I’m working on a Update…

Greetings, Lorenz Wöhr

Hello When can I accept updates that I requested and paid for ?

Thank you

Please Update!!!!

I fixed this by adding the following lines of code:

Add this line whenever your app start playing audio.[[UIApplication sharedApplication] beginReceivingRemoteControlEvents];

And on the endInterruption method, wait 1 or 2 seconds before resume playing the audio. This to allow the OS to stop using the audio channel.

- (void)endInterruptionWithFlags:(NSUInteger)flags { // Validate if there are flags available. if (flags) { // Validate if the audio session is active and immediately ready to be used. if (AVAudioSessionInterruptionFlags_ShouldResume) { dispatch_after(dispatch_time(DISPATCH_TIME_NOW, 1 * NSEC _PER_SEC), dispatch_get_main_queue(), ^{ // Resume playing the audio. }); } } }

You can also add this line when your app stops (not pause) playing audio. But is not required. [[UIApplication sharedApplication] beginReceivingRemoteControlEvents];

Any word on update you mentioned? Loving the App, be good to get update to fix small issues.


Hello, Does this App auto resume on interruption? ex: call comes in and after call is finished radio resumes?

I have the same question audev14

Disappointing no support here or from the support email address?

Simply write me your question to or . I answer all mails within 48h.

This is great. Would it be possible to play a series of local MP3 files instead of grabbing an online stream?

I purchased this item and I’m happy with it so far. When I ran the app, I’m getting 8 to 10 issues ranging from Reachability.m, YouTubeViewController.m, FacebookViewController.m, TwitterViewController.m to Uncategorized invalid character. Please help.
