    Default Does the wifi turn off when the screen does?

    Mine is doing that for some reason. trying to listen to the police scanner, and don't necessarily need to have the screen on while that is playing, but it disconnects as soon as i turn the screen off. is there a setting i need to look for?

    I think that is by design to save battery. Its still basically a reader so they probably assume if the screen is off, you aren't using it.

    Its.actually Upto the delevoper of the app to enable it to continue streaming while the screen is locked. I have the tuner radio app and Pandora and while streaming I can lock the screen and still will stream live radio the ipad does the same its up to the developer to enable this feature.
