NEW: A2DP Keepalive Support. Your A2DP speakers/receiver go to sleep when not playing music, but being connected? The next usage is going weird? With A2DP support you can prohibit your A2DP speakers/receiver from going to standby. Speakers will give a regular sound to prevent standby mode.

There you'll find surveys and can give feedback.
Before you buy, please check on this website, if BTKA can really help you:
Some Samsung smartphones have activated "energy saving" mode. Please be sure to turn it off (Maybe test before buying BTKA, if that already helps you). BTKA does not need "root" - only the rights requested by the Market.
After installation start BTKA manually. It registers with Android™ and will from now on start automatically whenever you restart your Android™. After starting the app there is a "Configuration" button (visible for 2 seconds), with that you can change the configuration settings for notifications and the starting-behaviour of BTKA. For hints on how to configure BTKA correctly see the check page above.
In case of a failure please see the english section on this site: http://www.bluetooth-keepalive.com/support.php

I developed this app for personal use since i had the same issue you were having. I make no promises it will work with your operating system and since my new Note 4 works nativly (without this app), i no longer have a reason to continue development. I am sorry.
Works with google play music now too! (may work with other audio players that use notifications as well)
This app does 3 things the Spotify Android app does NOT
1) Transmits Bluetooth metadata to your car stereo (this is so easy to do i'm surprised Spotify does not do this)
2) Transmits new notifications as Bluetooth Metadata for 15 seconds (then returns to song data)
3) Lets you set 2 different volume levels for when Spotify is playing music and when it is not. This is useful when the volume level of your maps navigation isn't quite loud enough to understand while driving. Now you can set the music volume lower than the "non music." ** this feature will be phased out in future versions as spotify now supports "audio ducking".
** You'll need to give autoaudio notification access for this to work with the newest version of Spotify, as they don't seem to support device broadcast anymore. (some phones have this setting hidden, so autoaudio has a button to take you directly to the settings screen)
** Spotify (and google play music) hides the notification when the app is visible, so this only works when the screen is off, or the app is not in the foreground.
** Use the notification setting in my app to prevent android from killing it.
** If you find this app useful, please feel free buy my donate app.
Coastal Walkabout is an easy-to-use smartphone app designed to encourage people of all ages and abilities to get out into their coastal environments and record observations of the fauna living there.
The app automatically takes note of the time and location (GPS) of wildlife sightings before uploading that data in real time to the Coastal Walkabout website (www.coastalwalkabout.org). Via the website, the data is freely accessible to the general public, researchers, NGOs, industry and local organisations all over the world.
The Coastal Walkabout app can be adapted for specific projects for community, industry, NGOs, government and researchers; collectively contributing to a massive open access database.
The Coastal Walkabout initiative consisting of:
- Smart phone app for iPhone and Android
- The Coastal Walkabout website
- A Biological Data Recording system
- Social Media platforms
Coastal Walkabout strives to provide community, industry and researchers with easily accessible tools and data to contribute to the monitoring and management of their environment.
The philosophy behind Coastal Walkabout was conceived through collaborative discussions between Marine Ventures Foundation (USA), Duke University (USA) and Murdoch University. This app was developed by Gaia Resources with input from Duke University, Marine Ventures Foundation and Murdoch University. The development of the app was made possible through funding from Murdoch University. We thank Lotterywest for funding to develop the business case for the Coastal Walkabout Citizen Science project.
Available for iPhone, iPod touch, iOS version 6.1 or higher, and also in an Android version from the Google Play store.
