Hi Ashley ... Tom and the rest of the Construct team
Recently I filed a bug report about sound not working in the default browser on a Galaxy S7 (also galaxy S8 I think), and some other android phones I've tested at a local shop.
Ashley was very helpful and explained that this problem lies with Samsung as there is a bug in their browser and that he lied an issue with them.
Just for context, I love everything that the Scirra team are doing and also own a business license for C3, as I'm planning on using it quite seriously.
The problem I have here is that this bug (from my tests) seem to affect a lot of phones. Even if it is only Samsung phones - that is a really big slice of the pie. My main reason for using C3 is the reason that it works so well across a bunch of devices and I can be confident people will be able to play my game without issues.
I understand the Scirra can't keep on top of every single thing, but I do think that this sort of bug is quite major and there needs to be some sort of workaround. Perhaps using a different sound format that WILL work (as a backup).
It is quite scary to think that, my games working or not on certain devices lies in the hands of a manufacturer.
I again want to stress that I love Scirra's products, but in this case I am quite concerned, as I have no idea how long Samsung will take to fix this problem.
