CamerAlert 1.3.6 for iOS background Audio issues

The version 1.3.6 of CamerAlert in the AppStore has an issue with background audio alerts. When running CamerAlert with other Apps and another App is in the foreground the audio alerts may not work. In this scenario bringing CamerAlert to the foreground will not resume audio alerts, CamerAlert will need to be terminated to restore the audio. If you need background audio alerts please do not update to this version.

We are currently investigating and testing a fix for this issue which is believed to be related to the iOS5.1.1 update which affected the audio processing for a number of applications apart from CamerAlert. Please be patient as we strive to overcome this problem.

We have a new App in for review with Apple that may help some users, but is not the full answer and we would not recommend it if you rely on background alerts.
