I have been working on the update and have it mostly working except for a few corner cases.  I expect to submit a beta to Apple this week.

If you have the latest version of the Apple and Android apps on the respective devices, you can export your settings from the Apple version from the settings page of the app.   That will create an email with an attachment you can send to the other parent with the Android.   She can then open the email on her device and import your settings.

The big gotcha is that the music files cannot be transferred as that would violate music industry terms of usage.  If she can get the same song files loaded on her Android before the import, then the app is smart enough to locate and match them by artist and title and all should work.

Any recorded announcement files are also not transferred...  there is no law against that one, I just haven't figured out a good way to transfer larger files like that.

Issue Reporting / iOS 12 bluetooth muting issues

I have been testing the 2.4.2 version of the app with iOS 12 and though most functionality is working, there are significant new issues with the iOS12 handling of mixed audio sources to a bluetooth speaker.  The result is inconsistant muting of announcements and song playback.

 I am working on an update to workaround the iOS issues, but it is quite a mess and will likely require delays during switching of sources.  There also is an iOS 12.1 in beta that may address the issue.

Options for you would be to wait for my fix or just use a long aux cord to the speaker rather than bluetooth.  Considering the general latency of bluetooth, I would recommend the aux cord as a much better performance approach always.

Yes, this was resolved in iOS 11, but I have not retested with iOS 12 yet.  I will try to retest that with iOS 12 in the next day or so and see how it works for me.  The fix for the problem did require some kludgy delays to work around oddities in the Apple music player and the system volume manipulation required to fade the walkout songs.  I would not be surprised at all if the new iOS requires tweeks of those delays.

Long term, if it was me, I would use a long aux cable to the bluetooth speaker or use purchased songs rather than Apple Music so my app can do the fading using the audio samples rather than the system volume.

It has to be this hard because the music industry wants to prevent you from sharing music at all costs and all music suppliers assume you will only use their music in their app...

Now, to help with your issue.  What are you using to download songs?

Enhancement Requests / Re: Add music from Amazon prime music

Google music does not yet provide any player api for any of their music services.  I have been watching for one. 

In theory, I could provide support for playback of any youtube url, but the app would then require continuous internet access for playback as it would break youtube terms of service to cache anything.  Would that still be of value with that condition?

General Discussion / Re: Android announcer voice

Most people will just find a coach or parent with a good voice and have them record announcements for each player either within the app or with a third party voice recorder and then import the files.

There is also the possibility to have a professional do them... Casey Motter is the stadium announcer for the Atlanta Braves and he has a little side business making announcements for apps like this.  His contact info is on Facebook at AllstarIntros.  You just give him a call to negotiate a price, send him a screen shot of your team, and he will email back the announcements for you to import.  i think he charges around $4 per player.

Does this happen with all songs or just one in particular?

Is it Apple or Android?

What is the source of the music file?

That sounds like you are now using songs from An Apple Music subscription?  The player that Apple provides for those is quite buggy and inconsistent.  I implemented many workarounds to smooth out the bugs, but the things you mention still happen occasionally when you first start a session and if your device has any issues with marginal internet connectivity.  If those hiccups are unnacceptable, I would recommend returning to imported songs or just purchasing songs individually from iTunes.  With those types of songs, the app has direct access to the audio data and I can use a much better player that I designed.

I suspect Spotify support will be years away if ever.  Spotify just does not seem to care for third party apps.

On the settings page the two default duration settings only apply to the walkout song page and the between inning page.  On the other pages, the default duration is full length of the song.  Does that explain the duration issue you described?
