Need to improve app connectivity

Hi
I have AccuRadio on Android, version 1.57 (last update released by AccuRadio on July 2015). I think that the Android app doesn't handle disconnects well. Even though it is connected to my WiFi and my tablet (Amazon Fire) is staying in the same place, it tends to disconnect on occasion. The more problematic issue is that the app is not programmed to reconnect automatically. If the app encounters a problem, then it should attempt to retry connecting every few seconds (consider using a backoff algorithm: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exponential_backoff#Binary_exponentia... ). Currently, the app simply remains disconnected waiting for manual user intervention.

Here are relevant Android logs:
