Closing Android version

I installed your Android version recently and I'm trying to learn how to use it in preparation for Autocross next spring. So far it looks very good, and I can record videos on both my Galaxy S5 phone and my GoPro Hero 3+ at the same time. Some of the functions mentioned in your docs are not there, like video preview, but I assume that is because it is a Beta version.

I do have one question now, what is the best way to close the app? Pressing the Back button on the phone closes other apps, but on this one it just goes back to the previous screen. Pressing the Home button sends me back to the phone's main screen, but I don't know if it ends the app or not.

In any case, thanks for creating this app, and I will try to help you test it some, and give feedback here, if that will help you.

Yes, the video preview was just missing due to it being a Beta. That will be included in the Google Play Store release, or the next Beta release if we put out another update before then.

Pressing the Home button should stop anything the app was doing, unless you were actively recording a session at the time, but will remember the app's state so that you can switch back to it quickly. Prior to going to the Google Play store, the the Back button's function will be changed to fit the expected Android behavior of exiting the app. In either case, you could also ensure that it is fully closed by using the device's task list (on a Samsung device, hold the Home button down until the task list appears). Even if the app had exited, it will still be a recent app that appears on the list, so that's not always clear what's running or not.

Thanks for the quick reply. Please let me know if there is any particular part I can test for you on my S5 running Android 4.4.2 by driving around town or around the block.
