12/12/2023 – After the recent Samsung UI update, some users are reporting that the FFBR Adnroid app won’t open due to a “bug” warning. The FFBR app was just updated and it appears the “bug” is with the new UI update. We are looking into this and will try to get it fixed ASAP.
If you are having trouble with your stream stopping when the screen locks or times out,
here are some things that can help:
Usually Step 1 or 2 is all you need, but additional steps are listed here as well.
1. Adjust the Battery Settings
Settings –> Apps –> FFBR app –> Battery
Make sure the switch next to “Allow background activity” is turned ON or make sure the switch next to “Optimized” is turned OFF.
*Do this same step to your web browser app if you are a Premium user!
2. Remove the App from Sleeping Apps
Alternatively, you can open Settings, and then search for and select Sleeping apps. Tap the Delete icon (the trash can) in the upper right-hand corner, and then choose your desired app(s). Tap Remove to delete it from your Sleeping app list.
3. Change the Power Mode
Apps may be closing in the background depending on the selected Power mode. Open Settings, and then search for and select Power mode. Adjust the Power mode to Optimized.
4. Adjust the Data Saver Settings
You can choose which apps will still run even when Data saver is on.
Navigate to Settings, and then search for and select Allow app while Data saver is on. Tap Allow app while Data saver is on again, and then tap the switch next to the music app you want to keep running.
If you have a data limit set, you will need to adjust the limit for the music app.
Navigate to Settings and select Apps. Tap All, and then tap the app you want to keep running. Tap Mobile data, and then tap the switch next to Allow app while Data saver is on.
5. Adjust Playback Options
If the issue remains, you can check the music app’s playback options in the app’s Settings menu.
3 Simple steps to add FFBRMobile.com to your home screen:
1. Open the FFBRMobile.com site in Safari
2. Tap the “share arrow” at the bottom of your screen. (square with an arrow coming out of the top)
3. Find the Add to home screen button and tap it.
The FFBR stream should now be able to play even when your phone is locked.
If the stream turns off when your phone goes to sleep / locks, change your Auto-Lock setting to “Never”.
Settings –> General –> Auto Lock –> Never
Settings –> Display & Brightness –> Auto Lock –> Never
Please contact us if you are still having issues.
It is recommended that you uninstall the previous FFBR apple app.
