Just picked up BT for Android, along with the emulated BT1-3. They did a nice job with the Apple 2 emulator for BT1 (haven't looked at 2-3 yet). Seems to be a modified version of KEGS playing inside their app.

I noticed with the App that many times when I switch away, the app resets back to the title screen. I noticed this the most when I was inside the BT1 emulator, and tapped the link they added to take you to the map or manual online. sometimes hitting the back button takes you right back where you were, but other times the game resets back to the main BT (not BT1) title screen. I noticed this while downloading the HD content as well. switching away, the app reset and you had to start the download over again.

just my phone? something with the app? I did a support request, but wondered if anyone else experienced the same thing.

just to post an answer, it seems to just be a memory issue with my cheap phone. isn't just BT. Android's trying to be frugal and suspends things in the background.

What if Bluetooth was already on before you started the app (e.g. you were using a Bluetooth headset)? If you want it to remain on after (retain initial condition), don't use an exit task, and keep Restore Settings at its default value of ticked. If you want it forced off regardless of initial condition, use an exit task.

I think you need to on your bluetooth then start your game then this issue not created and if you on it during game play then it creates issues that is the main reason. Thanks for sharing this
