The situation and inning break sections are designed to be single play items.   The only way to play from one song to the next is to put them in the pregame page.

Can you describe the use case for why you want to play multiple songs in sequence in the inning break or situation scenario?   I have recently had one other request for this functionality so I am trying to understand the use cases I have missed and how best to address this feature request in the future.

Issue Reporting / Re: Voice Announcement not working right.

I have found a couple bluetooth speakers that are having issues with the audio session and volume manipulation that must be done to play Apple music songs.  I just ordered and have received an ecoxgear ecoboulder that a user reported having issues with.  I tested it and did indeed see the problem.  I will be working on a solution starting tomorrow, but there is a chance it can't be resolved.

As a workaround, I would recommend just using a long aux cable to connect to the speaker.  The problem does not occur if you eliminate the bluetooth.  You can also just purchase the individual songs from iTunes and avoid using Apple Music subscription songs.  Apple requires me to do some very hokey workarounds to play the apple music songs.  With purchased song files, the volume fade is done using raw audio samples so there are no issues with bluetooth speakers.

There isn't a way yet, but it is on my roadmap list.  I expect to add that some time this summer.  Thanks for the request.. that does help the motivation to keep the app fresh!

Well, I guess my testing coverage needs some work... I will try some text magification here on my test devices and see if I can't get that fixed for my next update.  Thanks for the report!

Is this Apple or Android?  What is the device model?  Do you have the font magnified to make text easier to read?

First verify that you have the latest version of the App.  The Apple Music support had some problems in the first couple versions and then iOS 11.3 added some bugs in the Apple system player which required work arounds.

If you are still having issues,  could you tell me if you are doing the announcements before or after the walkout song?  Could you also tell me the brand of bluetooth speaker you are using?

With that info, I could do some tests here to see if I can duplicate the issue and find a fix or workaround...

If you wish to just avoid any possible problems, I would recommend avoiding using Apple Music song sources for the walkout songs with announcements.   Apple forces me to use and manipulate the system player and system volume for playing and fading Apple Music songs.  It works pretty well when directly wired, but there are some bluetooth speakers that do not handle the volume change very well.

If you instead use purchased songs for the walkouts, then the app can manipulate the raw audio samples to do the fading and avoid any manipulation of the system volume.

Enhancement Requests / Re: Walkout Songs - Add "Position" Column/Field
« on: April 30, 2018, 10:42:53 am »
Excellent list! That is pretty much what I was thinking of for my dropdown column.  It is on the short list of update features so look for it when the season winds down some and I don't risk breaking the app during prime season.

Which voice are you using? 

The app has no control over how the voices annunciate, but it is possible I could convert the number to its word form and see if that works better.

I suppose that could work all though it might be a lot of typing if you want the text to speech to sound right.  Abbreviations like 1B wouldnt get spoken exactly that way.

Did you have something in mind other than the standard positions that could be put in a dropdown list?

For some unexplained reason, Google Play puts your purchased files in a private folder on the phone. You can't see them in file manager and the Walkout Song App can't access them. The only solutions I know of is to go to the Google Play store on a pc and download them there and transfer to your phone.

Version 2.3.20 was released from the App Store on April 20, 2018.

Fixed two long standing bugs:
- Issue that would repeat songs in the pregame list if the next song had never been scrolled into view since the last app restart (existed since original release)
- Issue where newly added items in the between inning, situation, pregame list would always appear at the top of the list after app restart (existed since 2014)

Issue Reporting / Re: Songs sometimes play on repeat during pregame?
« on: April 19, 2018, 08:29:04 am »
Thanks to your clue, I believe I finally found the issue! 

It was a pretty obvious coding error in the handling of playing the next song when it has not ever been scrolled into view yet. 

I will be submitting an update to Apple today to address it.  Until the update is out, if you just scroll your pregame list all the way to the bottom before starting to play, it should avoid the issue.

Pretty crazy that bug has been there since the beginning.  I wonder how many people ran into it and just ignored it.

That may be a pretty good clue... When you first open the app and go to that page, how many songs are visible in the table?
