Firestick v Mi Box s - keeping apps open

5
Posted 19th Aug
Hi,

I’ve got an Amazon Fire Stick And an Xiaomi Mi Box s, when i open a new app on the Mi Box S and switch back to the old one it keeps the position it was on, say im 30 minutes into a program on Iplayer, open 4OD then decide to switch back to iplayer its still on 30 minutes. However when i do that on the firestick it will close the position of where i was on Iplayer and start from the very beginning of the app, is there anyway of changing this?

thanks
Dan

As far as I know the firestick doesn't do that no, think you're referring to app switching (I may have made that term up)

Apps don't run in the background on firestick I don't think, they effectively close after a period of no use or if you go back to the home screen, unlike on Android TV

Not that I'm aware of, it might be possible though. I always took it as a limitation of the Fire OS but the Devs over at XDA may have figured it out. It's android after all ultimately.
