Since both companies Xtrons and Joying don't care at all about their DAB+ app extremely stuttering when running in the background, I started to patch their versions of the DAB+ app.
I gave the detailed instructions how to change the code of the DAB+ App to Joying. They appreciated my effort and promised to give this info to the original developers of the App. They did not want (or cannot) give me the contacts of the original developer/company responsible for the DAB+ App (com.ex.dabplayer.pad).
However, also their recent new versions of the DAB+ App do not bring with them the solution for the stuttering issue when in background. So I will continue to patch it...

Current latest version:

Been looking for an alternative dab+ app and you have created a great looking app. Just installed the new version looks so much better than the original, not keen on the green though if I'm being picky.
The problem I had with the original dab+ app was the signal would be full then completely drop out and I would have to close the app and then reopen to get the station to play. This could happen 4 or 5 times during my 20 minute journey to work, it was so annoying I've used FM radio for months.
I have had only one dropout so far with your updated app so far so good. Many thanks for all your hard work hope to see more improvements.

I really appreciate this effort! Obvious that whoever makes the original app doesn't know anything about how DAB works and what features users want. Will download your latest patched version and try using DAB again. I've relied on internet radio instead as the original app is close to useless with the horrible reception and crap interface.

I am sorry that the slideshow feature (aka station logos) does not work in UK. However, I am unable to fix this, because decoding of the slideshow is done inside a libdab.so, which I am unable to change. I can only do changes in Java code and on the layout.
I assume that your original DAB+ App also does not show any station logo, right? I suggest then you contact your dealer and tell that the DAB App that comes with the device (or stick) does not show any station logo. The only chance to get this fixed is to report these bugs to the guys that develop this piece of crappy DAB App.

Great that you are trying to make this crappy app a bit better. In the past i made some modifications in the layout in this app for myself. I also found some icons or code which pointed in the direction of adding favorite radiostations. They never integrate it. Can you make this?

I also tried to integrale a lockscreen in this app, so Automate Will show the radiostation picture when playing. Unfortunatly i couldnt het It to work. Maybe you can look at it of you have the time.

Keep up to good work. Looking forward to your next release!

Hi thank you very much for your release!
With the version shipped by malaysk rom I had real problems. Every time the app was moved to background playback began to stutter...
This issue is now gone! Thanks!

One small request: Could you add a higher resolution app icon? The current one looks pretty crappy since the resolution is too low.
Thank you!

The icon an text is very blurry. see the attachment

Another question, could it be that the app doesn't display images which a transmitted by the station?

You are right. I will change the icon in my next release. I don't have this icon in a higher resolution.

Some stations broadcast a complex slideshow (aka station logo), which this app cannot decode. Example: Bayern 3. Whereas Antenne Bayern is decoded fine. (I see you are from Bamberg )
