For everyone that is currently experiencing a problem with the Unofficial Triple J Now Playing app, I apologise. It seems that Triple J have made some changes to their feeds recently and it appears to randomly crash some instances of the app.
- The problem is intermittent and therefore difficult to determine the root cause
- the problem does not appear to be specific to a handset
- the problem does not appear to be specific to a version of Android
I appreciate your patience while I fix this issue and I’ll have the app up and running again ASAP!!! In the mean time, keep sending through your crash reports. Every report I get brings me closer to debugging the issue!
If you’ve been having problems with your Unofficial Triple J now playing app this week it’s because the devs over at the ABC are playing with their XML feeds. I’m not sure to what end but it’s becoming hard to keep up with their changes.
Be sure to download the Version 2.4 here or at the Android Market; which as of right now (2012-06-25 @8pm AEST) is working fine.
Version 2.1 of the Unofficial Triple J Now Playing app has been released. I worked tirelessly to cram in a whole bunch of features and get it working before the Hottest 100 on Australia day. I’m glad I did too, because according to the Google statistics for the app, I had over 1500 installs in a single day!
For the last few weeks I’ve been working on adding the all important home screen widget to the Unofficial Triple J Now Playing Android app. Things are going quite well but there are a few lessons I’ve learned during my journey of Android discovery that some of you existing users may not like.
Version 1.3 of the unofficial TripleJ now playing app was released last week and I’ve had a pretty good response from the comments and ratings so far;
Great! Thanks for the android love! Works great, kinda annoying how some presenters don’t update tho! – Simone
Peeved at Update – can’t believe JJJ made you change your design despite them still not showing any regard for android users!! App is Great!, does exactly what it says it does… still a bit peeved that jjj still aren’t releasing any Android apps!! – Matthew
Great I thought ABC wasn’t allowed to endorse a product. This is what they are doing by only releasing Apple apps. Thanks for creating this for Android users – Kylie
