Thank you for your feedback and ideas. Great that you are enjoying the Global Player app and our stations. I’ve passed your idea on to our development team, Vanessa.

App keeps crashing on me!

Another problem noticed - when listening back to shows that have been downloaded to ‘My Library’ - when you hit play and leave the app after about 90 seconds the app crashes in the background and stops playing audio. How can you solve this as I keep having to relaunch the app and find the show again.

Developer Response ,

Hi, thanks for your feedback. We did have a small issue with audio quality in December for catch up content. This should be fixed now.

Thanks for fixing the BT headphones bug! But I think I found another one...

If the app is already a background task and then you try to use it via car play, you just get a black screen saying ‘global player’ but can’t choose any stations. However, the last station played is availvefrom ‘now playing’ if you’ve not used any other media apps.

Developer Response ,

Hi, we've identified the problem and will get a fix out ASAP for this. Sorry for the inconvenience.
