  • continued audio while in background

    Is there a way to make the voip audio continue, if you have to back out of the app to jump to another or to web browser. I jump out and go to safari( for qrz or lotw) to do my logs or go to a dxcluster app and then jump back to commcat (still running in background) by double tapping home button. If i "minimize commcat, all audio quits

    I guess to clarify, its like if you are listening to music on device, you can hit home button and go on to something else and audio continues as its running in background

      Up until the latest CommCat Mobile release, you could keep VoIP going in the background. The latest release was initially rejected by Apple, and I had to remove the background option to get it accepted. Their reasoning was that background VoIP was not required because there were no incoming calls. Since background VoIP is a drain on the battery, they required that it be disabled. I have a solution I hope will satisfy them for the next release, but there is no arguing with them.

          I miss the background audio to the point I found my self and some friends not using Commcat.

          Hope to have it back soon!
          Also wishing for more MACROS!

          Thanks for the fine work and nice APP.

            I ended up going to remoterig interface for a while so my phone was free to do my logging. Its a pain when you want to log a qso, you have to reconnect audio or even miss a call.

              Hi Jeromy,

              I'm not sure what you mean about reconnecting audio when you want to log a QSO. I also note you mentioned DX Cluster and QRZ in an earlier post. As you know, the problem caused by Apple's restrictions is that the audio is disconnected when CommCat goes into the background. However, the audio will not disconnect if you are using CommCat Mobile's log, built-in spot list, or QRZ lookup. If your audio is disconnecting when you go from one view to another in CommCat Mobile, I need more information to track down the cause since that shouldn't be happening.

                Hi Miguel,

                Understood, I hope to have Apple's approval soon as well! I'm also planning to add more macros.

                    I use qrz logbook because it uploads to my lotw account. Can the logging in commcat mobile do the same? If so that would be an easy fix. I try to use QRZ and LOTW because some down do one or the other. Thanks ahead for your reply!

                      Hi Jeromy,

                      No, it is not possible to upload LoTW directly from CommCat Mobile. However, contacts logged from CommCat Mobile are easily sync'ed with you log in CommCat. It is then straight forward to upload to LoTW from CommCat.
