Dear AppleVis users,
Lately I have been having a problem with BARD Mobile involving the sleep timer.
I listen to books sometimes to fall asleep, and usually set the sleep timer for 45-60 minutes. After the latest update, when I wake up the next morning and turn on my iPad, I notice something odd about the lockscreen: the lockscreen miniplayer is still there, and the Play/Pause control is labeled "Pause" thereby implying that the book is still playing, yet no sound comes out. Also every now and again the track position slider will be at the position that I can only guess is what it would've been if I had it on all night, but is definitely not where it's supposed to be if it had stopped the night before, but this isn't always the case. The pause control won't move / change if I doubletap it, and twofinger magic tap doesn't do anything either.
I unlock the iPad and find the the play/stop on the Bard player is also acting as if the book is playing, being labeled "Stop". Again, doubletapping the stop button or doing the magic tap doesn't work. The only way I can get it back to normal is by closing BARD via the appswitcher.
I emailed the devs about this and they said that it was a known bug, and they were working on a fix but didn't know when it would be out.
So, onto my question: While I / we wait until this bug gets fixed, have any of you found a workaround / a way to get the sleeptimer to work normally or semi-normally in the meantime? Thank you for any help you can provide!
