Losing audio when Android goes to sleep

Hi Intermophics,

I really love your program and just to support you guys I bought version 6 for Android. (Could not find version 5 wich I also bought in the play store anymore).
Maybe it has always been like this with Android, that mixtikl stops when the screen shuts off, and that there are no hooks in the toolkit you use, to pull this off.
I do not remember because I use mixtikl mostly on my Ipad.

So do you have a solution or work around for this problem?

So I was looking some more on the forum and saw your suggestion to go in the screen settings and set it to never.
On my S3 the max is 5 minutes, so i got another app that keeps your phone on.
But with the screen on your battery is not going to last very long...

I am hoping for the kind of functionality you get in Tunein Radio:

-the screen switches off but the music keeps playing
-on the lockscreen there is a button to pause the music
-the volume buttons on the device control the volume of the audio

Hi Alfred!

The next update for Mixtikl 6 for Android (which is going to be released quite soon) allows Mixtikl to keep playing even when the screen is locked.

Hoping this helps!

Best wishes,

Pete
