    BeyondPod keeps closing/crashing

    Hey,
    Since the last update (which IIRC changed how background audio is done) BP keeps closing after I move to another app (facebook, chrome, etc.).
    When I go back to BP and resume playing, it resumes a couple of minutes behind where it was before. That's why I suspect it's a crash.

    I'm using the latest beta version (v4.0.24) on a vanilla unlocked Nexus 4.

    I suspect Android is shutting it down because it's out of memory, and needs the memory for something else that is running.

    Have you tried rebooting and/or clearing the cache from your other apps. It may just be that something's just gone over the limit of how much memory is needed, resulting in a requirement for slightly more memory than you have available.

    The only thing that has changed about playback is whether the notification is used when BP is in the foreground. Background playback is unaffected.

    I made sure it has more than 300 MB free but I guess that wasn't enough.
    I deleted some useless apps and now everything works just fine.
    Thanks, juwlz.

    It's RAM (used by running processes), not internal storage (used by data and installed apps) that matters. Glad you're back to normal anyway
