there is no way to keep the program alive when the screen is off. Once in the lock screen you hear beeps to tell you it is running but not the audio I started the program to listen to in the first place. I seen a fix work around on another critical reply. I was able to figure it out on my android 9 pie from what they said. They should make a link to it instead of making it so hard to type the LONG link.

The app does as advertised. It allows you to pull up streams and listen to them. The audio quality is fair and probably just as close as having a radio in the area. HOWEVER. The UI is super outdated. This isn't why I'm bashing it, though. The service purposefully drop streams after around 5-6 minutes, just as others have stated. I purchased the "pro" version thinking that it would solve this issue from the original. It doesn't. Waste of money. Glad I was able to refund it. I'll just continue with my ad blocking now to make up for what should already be. I'm fairly certain the feeds "drop connection" to get you to go back in and be presented with more ads. Guess they don't want my money at all. For that, it is useless to me. I will be looking to other solutions.

Plays a broadcast for about 8 minutes before it stops, despite it saying it's still playing and the screen is lit. Oh. And god forbid you switch apps or turn your screen off. Really ups the suspense when you are trying to listen to police scanners during a critical incident because you work in news and the feed cuts for no damn reason.
