    Tried this method but won't keep the player alive when screen is turned off - major flaw in my opinion.

    Any other ideas?

    I enable Keyguard, which turns off the screen, but keeps Kinoma running.

    I just downloaded the free version. My audio keeps playing when I hit the red button. The audio does "skip" for a second or two, but it picks right back up and keeps playing.

    Same issue here with either local files and/or internet streaming.....very disappointing. I love the Palm version of this application. I hope it's a bug that can be quickly resolved.

    Most likely, that means you've mistyped the Purchase Key. We'll try to make that error message more informative in a future release.

    Ooof, yes. Considering that a full-featured music player is just a small part of Kinoma Play, other vendors are going to have to reconsider their pricing.

    Also, you can get Kinoma Play for free by checking out with TrialPay. And even the free Kinoma FreePlay does a lot more than Pocket Tunes.

    Nope, you just use your phone's normal display-off features.

    On my Motorola Q9c I hold the Message/Display Key for a second and the screen goes off. I can also press Home+space to lock the device and the screen will turn off in a few seconds.

    My recommendation for anybody that's having trouble with this is to contact support. It may be as simple as creating a FAQ that documents display-off commands for various devices.

    Are you playing a music file or streaming radio? It worked for me streaming a station.

    I have no problem streaming podcasts after turning the screen off. Are you saying that playing music can't happen with the screen off? Don't have any music on my 800w so can't try it.

Here's why - in the time I tested it, it looked like it wouldn't support playback controls from my stereo BT headset (I use a Sony Ericsson one that is great), and there were also a few other features that I HAD to have, from my pTunes usage:

    I liked how pTunes allowed you to fully exit the app (as in - totally close it; not just minimize it), and then when it fired back up again it would start ON ITS OWN, right where you left, based on an option setting. That was critical to me. Probably the most important.

    I didn't like how Kinoma would play an album alphabetically, as opposed to oriiginal song order. Probably a way to change that, but it wasn't obvious to me.

    I also didn't like how each time I launched the app anew, it would scan through all my media. I have a ton, and that became bothersome (yes I saw from Dieter's video that would lessen over time, but still - sheesh).

    Back to pTunes! Yes, Kinoma has some cool movement process, and is a very comprehensive total media player, but all I need is a quick and simple music player. I've grown accustomed to pTunes (and I gave up Pocket Player in favor of pTunes, so I've been around a bit on this) and I really like it. Perhaps pTunes needs some 'coolness' work, but it is good for me.
    Same here. I switched back to Ptunes as well. The continuous scanning got to me. I use it for listening to streamed stations. I don't care to have my ring tones scanned and put in a song list.

    Update: This is a problem with Orb, not Kinoma. For some reason, Orb uses one album art image for all music.

    Malatesta,

    Thanks for the feedback and the kind words! A couple comments:

    You can just use the device's global display-off command. If it's not working like you think it should, definitely let us know so we can resolve any device-specific issues.

    Just play the first song, and it'll continue just like CD player.

    Playing music from my SD card which is my most common application. When I hit the [END] key to turn off the screen, then music plays for a few seconds and then stops, restarts as soon as I turn the screen back on.

    Have not tried streaming yet.
    Have a great one...Doc D.

    Charles, seems to be working when you stream music via web but it does not seem to work when playing MP3 files from local storage.

    So far this is my major gripe (expecting of course that full Bluetooth control functionality is "on the works" for a near future release), the player is great.

    One additional suggestion, I would like to have a setting to allow disabling the automatic scanning function - I certainly know when any new media has been added to my phone and can choose to do a manual scan when needed.
    Have a great one...Doc D.

    I am on a Sprint Touch and cannot figure out how to easier turn off the screen with this player. I love the interface otherwise and purchased it within minutes of trying it out. Also, I am surprised it will not play my AVI files so I have to keep TCPMP for now. any other Touch users figure this out?
