New major release 4

Application renamed
I renamed the application from "RokuControl" to "Remote for SoundBridge". This new name describes clearly for what the app is intended and avoids collisions with the product and brand "Roku".

Edit your favorites
If you have registered your SoundBridge with, then you may have used the favorites list. Since browsing favorites with Remote for SoundBridge is possible a long time, now you may add and remove radio stations to/from the favorites list as well. To add a station, use the Now playing context menu. To remove a station, go to Browse - My Favorites and use the station's context menu.

Pause during phone calls
If you enable this new feature in the Preferences menu, then the application will detect incoming and outgoing phone calls and pause playback during the call. This however works only if Remote for SoundBridge is running! So if you want to make a call, don't use to Back button to get to the Home screen because that terminates the app. Use the Home button instead - then the app continues running in the background!

This feature requires the additional permission Phone calls - read phone state and identity to listen for changes in the phone state, like incoming calls or off-hook. The app never uses the identity of the caller, but there is no separate permission in the Android system to distinguish between phone state and caller identity.
