Why does my music keep playing after I close the app?

The app closes the music when it is programmed to. Some apps, especially music apps, are designed to continue playing even when the app is minimised so you can listen to music while browsing your phone.

 

When the music stops is down to how the app has been developed. You can follow the steps below to force the app to close, but if this continues to be a problem, we recommend contacting the app's developer.
