Yesterday, TuneIn Radio Pro, one of my favorite radio apps, was updated to version 9.0 and brought a bunch of sports-related improvements. However, a pretty significant bug made its way into the app as well - pausing and rewinding live streams, which are two of the most important features of Pro, no longer worked.

Reviewers started making a stink, a bunch of users on Reddit got sad, and TuneIn soon realized what they'd done. The company worked quickly and released an updated version 9.1 today which brought back these important broken features. Bugs fixed, crisis averted, and everything is now back to normal. Go grab the update and get pausing.

    Sweet!!! Finally fixed :)

    I really hate the recent changes to TuneInpro. It's gone from my favorite app to my least favorite for one simple thing.

    PUT A FRIGGIN CLOSE x BUTTON IN THE NOTIFICATION LIKE GOOGLE MUSIC DOES.

    Opening an application to close an application is so counter-intuitive.

      Yeah, and how about they stop it running on boot while they're at it. Why hell should it be running all the time!

      • Steph Chi

        Don't understand too ... The usage of the Run at boot permission is not clear, even on the market. And remember, what is it for, a firewall ?? No, a radio app !! ^^

        Well there is the scheduled recording and alarm clock features that pro has. Those would require an always on state.

    I also wouldn't mind if they would bring the feature parody up to the level of the iOS version. =[ Was the first app i re-bought when jumping to android and there is still no good way to skip songs in recorded content like there was in their iOS version.

    Stuff like this makes me wonder how no one noticed in testing that basic features were missing. SwiftKey had a beta a couple of versions back which removed the ability to adjust long-press time and some other basic things that had always been there. Really weird that they thought no one used such a basic thing.

    Now if they would allow in-app editing of recordings, a better use of the progress bar when pausing live radio, and a skip forward button along with the skip back I'd be happy.

    BTW did this fix the bug of paused live recordings jumping to realtime when the 30 minute buffer is reached (even if it was unpaused during that 30 minutes)?

    Also I want more customization, why 30 minutes? I have a 32Gb SD card, let me record whole days if I want. And the skip needs to be customizable too, I'd rather jump back 30 seconds and forward 10.
