TuneIn Radio - Continues Streaming even when paused and in background
I just noticed something very strange: Since I updated to iOS 4.0 on my 3GS, my favorite radio app, tunein radio is behaving a little strangely.
When I press the home button while listening to the radio, the app will continue playing in the background, so far so good. But when I than launch the iPod app or any other app that plays audio, the TuneIn Radio app will obviously stop playing. But the problem is: Because the app has a pause functionality, it will not stop streaming but only stop playing the audio. The app will continue to download the stream in the background so that you can open the app back up and continue listening where you left off (which you usually can't on radio). So the app basically records the radio stream in the background.
When you are on WiFi, it's not a problem at all (except for the battery) but when your on 3G or EDGE (espacially on one of the new limited data plans) It will use up your data really fast.
Is there any way to disable this functionality? I know that it is possible to completely end the app using the multitasking bar but it's easy to forget...

I guess until such an update happens, we will have to open the app and press the stop button manually.
