Seems to be a great app but everytime I close the app (I have a one plus 5t) it removes the progress of the audiobook in emby I was playing completely which makes it unuseable for me unfortunately.

The positions are always saved see https://support.symfonium.app/t/wiki-resuming-audiobook-album-playlist/228 for how to resume easily.

The app, for the moment, does not keep the global state when killed because Symfonium is multi provider multi player so the state when stopping the app is often not the wanted state when restarting the app the next day.

If you are talking about the position inside Emby, please join the beta on the Play Store it have a fix for sometimes reporting the wrong positions.
