I am creating an app which plays an audio (Player).
How can i keep my app running in the background when the screen goes to sleep? 
Acording to an advice http://puravidaapps.com/countdown.php the videoplayer (1x1) don't prevent an app from a stop. 
A notifier don't allow to switch off an screen - so a phone quickly looses an energy.

You can use WebViewer + html5 Audio tags.



It play audio streams and mp3 files.
Audio (mp3) files you find in left upper corner :)
Also it can play backround and also "STOP" audio if call come in.
In mobile device Autoplay is disabled, that mean you need press PLAY when app start.

Thank you for this solution, but it doesn't suit to me, because I want that my app doesn't sleep as I want to have active the GPS and the app should make some work.. not only play audio.

You ask: "I am creating an app which plays an audio (Player).

You can try my solution, if screen go sleep, audio still play. If You push "Home" button Audio still play.

you can find a lot of examples, which use an embedded HTML/JavaScript file here http://puravidaapps.com/tutorials.php#html

Why am I not able to install your app on play store?? It says "This app is incompatible with your device." My phone is Lenevo A369i and android version is 4.2 Jelly Bean.

Hi,

I`m not see Lenovo A369i Google Play supported phone list. There is with similar Lenovo`s A360, A360t, A360e and A366t.
Sorry, I can`t add you phone if google not support this :(

Regards
Peep

This is great solution. Peep, Installed your app as well, Looks great. 5*****

How did you auto start playing after loading - in your app. 
Is it possible to add external buttons for Play,Pause,volume. 

Do I need to create 1 html file each station or is there way to make list of audio source and somehow modify html file. 

Thank you for your help.
