    Okay, I know this is kinda stupid to be bothered about but recently in the control panel when you swipe up right above the play button you would see like the name of the last app that played like music or a video. But now all I see is a blank and it's bothering me, lol. It feels empty and I don't like it, I don't know if there is a solution to fixing it so I'm asking you guys for help. Thanks

    Yeah, I've restarted it the hold down power and slide off and the hard reset where I hold the home and power button for a couple of seconds but nothing. :/

    It doesn't reappear when you play some music? It's always blank for me if I haven't played music in awhile or restarted the phone/iPad.

    Oh I'm sorry, yeah it appears when I play music but like when I exit the app out of multitasking it just appears blank and not that app because it was the last app that played music.

    Gotta be in it to win it
    Seems to be blank if no app is currently playing, apps on pause will show though.

    so what's the actual issue? You'd like something to be there? It seems kind of like asking for a screenshot of an app to still be there in multitasking once you closed it out--once it's not there it's not there, and the only way to get it back is to open and use the functionality again.

    Mine is like that too. I don't think this is an "issue" that can be fixed. Just play something and it will be there, case closed.

    This isn't an issue, its just the behavior. It doesn't show the "last" app that was playing, it shows that app that is "currently" in control of the audio service. It only gets confusing because there are times when an app will still have the lock on that service, even when it isn't playing anything anymore... so in those cases you see it listed, and it is the last app that you were using. Once that app quits or releases the service, it will not show up there anymore.
