View Full Version : Sencha Touch Running App with SoundCloud Integration

17 Mar 2014, 5:08 PM
Hi All,

I just finished converting an Android app to Sencha Touch. It's a running application that tracks distance, time and allows music control through touch controls. I've also been writing a blog series following my progress.

You can download the application here: http://runtap.com/ (I think the Android version is a little buggy right now)

And you can view the final blog post in the series here (there's a link to the first if you're interested): http://www.joshmorony.com/final-converting-a-native-android-app-to-sencha-touch-part-5/

I'd love to hear any feedback you have.

I just downloaded your app with my iPhone 5s running iOS 7.1.
If I start tracking I get an "GPS Failure" popup. Also I noticed that the music stops, if the app is "running" in background.

Thx for sharing and your blog posts!

Do you only get the GPS failure after you lock the phone? I've noticed this as well. I'm pretty sure I can get the GPS to run in the background but I haven't found a way to keep the music playing when it's in the background yet.

Thanks for the feedback!

No I get the GPS failure message about 5sec after I tapped on the counter to start tracking. The app wasn't locked and it has access to the GPS sensor.

Oh ok I've never experienced that, does it keep happening or was it just once? And were you outside at the time?

Ok everything works fine, when I'm outside the office ;-)

Great, I'll have to add a warning about that though I think - I'm sure others have had the same experience as you which is definitely not good. Thanks for helping out.
