    a test with 10min in free version would be ok for me.
    Hmm, maybe. I'll have to look into this a bit. Can't promise anything mind as it doesn't tell you which application has take audio focus, only that you have lost it.

    Thanks for this. I just played with it for a little bit and must say it is stable.

    Issue I had:
    1. Playing music via Tunein: after setting tunein icon on main page and selecting it, tunein opens and plays music fine. Now, i dont know if this issue is a tunein api problem but station id and text does not show on top line of your app, just 'external sound' (again, not sure if this is a'fault' of DC, but thought id mention it.)

    2. Testing the power feature, I plugged in a charger and DC recognised 'charging', I unplugged and again DC recognised this but nothing happened after this. Is my device meant to go in sleep mode after i unplug?

    Things that worked:
    Volume and mute
    built in music player
    tunein (did not test pandora etc)
    setting shortcut

    Things I'd like to see:
    More options in settings. E.g I just d/led the current version of DC today and this version does not have a background for the speedo as well as the a background for the short cuts.Also there are no backgrounds for the bottom strip and top strip. I prefer to have this than your version in your screenshot, but I am sure other may disagree, so an option for user to tick for these backgrounds would be good.


    Also, I'd love to see dabmonkey board available as a radio on DC.
    these are some initial thought. will provide more soon.


    Thanks
    Hi fella, sadly it doesn't tell me which app takes focus.. only that the audio has been taken away. I've now coded in which app takes the original focus by a bit of coding but if you then go from Tunein to Spotify.. it will still say Tunein which would be wrong. I still need to think of a solution for this.

    For the power setting to work you need to go into your display settings and set the timeout you wish. I was thinking of adding some filters above the buttons to simulate when you go into night mode so the buttons look like they have a glow that will match the colour of your car. I'm doing car logo's at the moment.. lots still to do but many thanks for the comments, they all help.

    Steve

    Sadly Android does not support flash otherwise I would be right at home :-( .. you can do simple animations but that will come when I've got the app stable with most of the bits done.

    thanks :-)

    Made a bit of progress tonight :-) You can now select mph or kph and choose a logo. All the logo's are in a folder you can add your own to if you wish.

    Fixed some errors and improved lots of things (I hope).



    Hopefully get something up soon....

    Sorry, but there don't exist any download option for me.
    very confuse to release your new version.

    first a have to confirm on g+, then on playstore as tester.
    on loading at playstore for download, always i get the screen, not found, try again?

    Hi, you have done everything right. It must be taking it's time to populate round the world. I got that for the first few times then it started to work, so I thought it would work for everyone, apologies....

    Give it 5 mins and try again... The benefit of this way is when I do a new release it will be automatically downloaded to your tablet as an update :-) It will appear and thank you for testing.

    Thanks,

    Steve

    ok, i got.
    i'm just testing on my s3 mini. some graphics are to big for my screen, but i think it's not a problem for real tablets.
    i can't see/browse mp4 files.
    the brightness slider don't work on my device.

    i needed 10mins to freeze my phone.
    started the camera app from digital car. the app started.
    on leaving the cam, the screen freezed and the round dc button did stay on his position. only the phone buttons, were highlighted by thouching the screen or press the power, home and vol-buttons.
    so i took a hard off and removed the accu.
    but music was playing the whole time.
