Dating yourself?  ;-)

My wife and I share a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 which is a 'phablet', i.e., a small tablet with phone capabilities.  (Who knows, we are probably older than you.)

We don't text often but when we do it is SO much easier with the larger smart phone.

Moreover, I spend a lot of time in the bush (back country, mountains).  Once upon a time I would bring along reams of 1:50,000 topographical maps and other maps.  

Now , I carry dozens of highly detailed 1:50,000 topo maps and JPEG snap-shots of GoogleEarth maps on the phablet.   As the more remote places I frequent have no cell phone service, it is easy to turn off the 'phone' and save the battery.

 
P.S.  I never carry music into the back country for both enjoyment and security reasons.  I can usually hear grizzlies and moose before I see them and so it becomes easy to cede territory (and stay out of trouble).   That doesn't work so well with walkmans, MP3 players, etc.   

Same for bicycling and running in an urban environment.  Nothing obstructs my hearing.

I'm checking with our developer on that.

Hi Bill.  First, congratulations on your great RP App for caching hours of music.  Just what I need for my hour long commute to and from work, patched into my car stereo.   I have noticed one slight bug.   There is frequently a short (less than one second) break of silence near the end of most songs.   Not a big problem, only slightly annoying.   I am using an I5 with all the latest updates and using RP App version 5.1 (809).   Is there anything I need to do, or is it just a bug that might get fixed in a future App upgrade?   Keep up the great work!   Cheers.   Long time RP Supporter.

 
Haven't heard about that one.  Try deleting the app & reinstalling it from the App Store.

I only want to thank for the new cache/play without network connectivity functionality, it's great.
I can cache RP content at home/work and listen in my car while travelling.
Thanks!

Hmmmmm

Ok then...so if I have NO Wifi, (or, for experiment sake I just turn OFF the WIFI on my phone) the app will play from the cache (as long as I have the *Cell Data* checkbox unchecked)

But now Im confused again, bc the other day I filled the cache and it said 12hrs.....now atm, some days later, it says 0hrs 0 mins.

Apparently now I have no cache, even though I havent used it since I filled it.

The cache will remain available indefinitely as long as you aren't connected to a network (ie:  the 'Cell Data' box is unchecked & you're not connected to a WiFi network).

I'll have to look it over.  I haven't used the cache function lately.

Can you make it so the cache only fills with sets that don't have any U2? {#Wink}

FYI, The app just won't work for me. I've uninstalled and re-installed several times. It looks good, but when I hit play (or autostart), it displays the latest song in the playlist, then shows "commercial free listener supported radio", Then the next several songs in quick succession (about 10-15 seconds each), then goes silent. It does give me a nice psychic feeling for knowing the next few songs though.

Or you could keep an under-educated phone for making phone calls and buy an Android tablet for all that other stuff.
