Version 3.0.2 beta  - 
 
Version 3.0.1 had some troubles whereby some screens wouldn't draw properly in the absence of a working internet connection.

Version 3.0.2 (pushed 2014-04-18) attempts to fix that.

Please help us wring this one out, if you have time.  We need to test the stuff which is supposed to be fixed, but we also need to regression test as much of the other functionality as we can.

Thanks!

Hey, +Stuart Taranto - was it you who reported the Facebook login loop?

Is there any chance you can try the current (3.0.2) beta to see if that issue's cured for you?  It is for me.

Thanks...

Version 3.0.1 beta  - 
 
I've just uploaded the next version to try (3.0.1).  It should be wending its through the labyrinthine passageways of Google Play even as we speak.

Notes for this one: I believe that it should be able to deal with being installed directly atop the v2.0 app (the developer tells me it should recognize and convert 2.0 data), but apparently what isn't expected to work (sorry!) is installing this v3.0.1 app directly over the previous (v3.0) beta.  So to load this one if you already have v3.0 installed, I expect you'll have to either uninstall the previous version before installing this one, or delete app data.

+Jeff Moore the power button I have only looked for on the WFMU app when I'm too deep in to the app, as hitting the back button shows your history, sometimes I am looking to navigate out and the power button would be a friend. Waze uses a power button and I love that it's there, but that's me, I'm weird like that, I use a torrent app on my phone too, and use the shutdown feature many times for expected reasons.

That'd be pretty sweet, huh?

Um, we're not on that yet. But it'd be interesting to look into what the barriers to entry are...

Version 3.0, beta 1  - 
 
There's a beta for the next planned release (v3.0) winding its way through the pipeline - it'd be great if you could give this one a spin as well.

As before, you have to opt in in order to see this new version...

I think.  Unless your opt-in for the previous beta is sticky.

Thanks, everyone, for trying this out!

I've gathered your bug reports and wishlist items for the next release.

There are definitely some infelicities left in this version of the app we've all been testing, but we've decided to move it into production because, well, it sucks less for most people than the one currently in production, so why make people who'd find this one better wait?

Thanks again, and I hope to run later versions by this community in the fullness of time.

Wish List: Widget / Lockscreen access

On many of my audio apps--e.g., Spotify, Beyondpod, Songza--I'm able to access them above the lockscreen while they're playing.  I believe but do not know for certain that this is functionality made possible via their respective widgets, since it is the widget that appears above the lockscreen in each case.

I do not know whether the functionality is related, but I notice that of each of the aforementioned apps permiting access above the lockscreen, each also allows you to pause and control volume via the earbud cord, if you have one of those headset/earbud cords. So that would be sweet as well.

Saved Show Storage

Where does the app save shows by default? I looked around and I can't actually find the mp3 file.

Here's a feature request: allow users to pick their save folder anywhere in their file structure or at the least on "SD Card" as many apps allow you to.

My phone's built in space is running a bit low. It's the HTC Evo 4G LTE (same as HTC One X). I have "App Storage" and I have "Phone Storage" which I believe is the same as "SD Card" on a lot of phones. But it's built in memory, not removable. On top of that I have a 32 GB removable card that the phone calls "External SD." Unfortunately, not every app can save to this (for instance, Pocket will only save to the "Internal SD"). Apps that allow me to specify a filepath (such as DoggCatcher) allow me to save large files (in that case, podcasts) to my much larger removable SD card.

I want this ability too, download show file to phone memory download folder instead of embedded in app ... Is it a copyright issue?

FYI, pushing the beta from March 18th into production.  Seems to work nicely, including email and facebook posting, and even that pesky last.fm scrobbling.

Note: The Facebook login sequence is still less than crystal-clear: if you haven't yet logged in to Facebook you need to do so, which leaves you at a screen with just a button to log out of Facebook;  but once you return to the WFMU app having done that, it'll then belch up a canned status update for you whenever you ask.  The way this works is apparently hard to change given the way the component parts work, and I actually don't see very many people wanting to use this functionality anyway...  so I think it's as okay as it's likely to get.  It does actually work.

Just pushed version 3.0.0 into beta.  Don't let the version number confuse you, it's the very latest try as of today (6 March 2014).

This version is trying to deal with issues playing WFMU live video feeds.

An earlier version tried to use a Ustream toolkit, and didn't always behave well.  This version plays in the phone's native browser (which at least in recent Android versions is a flavor of Chrome).

Whoever can test this video functionality on a variety of Android software and hardware would be helping us.  We're trying to figure out whether playing Ustream videos can be integrated in a way which works well enough that our app doesn't seem broken, or if it'd be better to amputate that functionality for the good of the patient.

A few opportunities to test are coming up tomorrow:

Fri 3/7, 10am-noon: Beastin' the Airwaves with Keili
Fri 3/7, 6-7pm: Shut Up Weirdo
Fri 3/7, 9pm-mid: Pseu's Thing with a Hook

Thanks, all!

Version 3.0.2 beta  - 
 
Version 3.0.2 beta uploaded to the Play Store last night.

The developer's personal account should no longer be hardcoded in for scrobbling, and I'm hoping that I've now shared the right key signature with Facebook to avoid that login loop.

No complete Archives?
Used to go back to infinity on the site for Glen Jones and X Ray, what I really would love is this awesome app to be able to read all the archives with their archaic real audio files... Impossible?

During the pledge drive, I heard the ladies on Terese's show Sunday venting the desire for full access to archives via the app...

The app will not open at all, just crashes since I downloaded the update. No WFMU for me.

Thank you Mike, that worked. Scott, thanks also, but had I needed more than the Uninstaller fix, I would have tried your cache suggestion.

Does anyone here have a Kindle Fire?

I've just added this same app to the Amazon Appstore, in the hope that it'll work for those Kindle Fire users who are (I think) isolated from the regular Google Play store.  According to Amazon's automatic validation suite, for what that's worth, the app should work fine on all Kindles Fire running compatible base OS versions.

But I'd sure like to hear from at least one or two actual users that this installs and works before we publicize this widely.

Any Android 2.3.x users here?

I note that it's the second-most-popular Android OS family in the installed base for our older app, but I don't have access to a phone of that vintage to test with.

Bug

I notice that if I (1) pause an archived show (I imagine this would occur with a live stream as well, but I don't know) and then (2) the phone rings, then (3) after I hang up or finish voicemail, the WFMU app immediately unpauses and plays without my having done anything.
