Amiko – Tracking issue with Sony devices


Recording of your walks may stop unexpectedly because Sony devices block apps running in the background (or when the smartphone is locked). This is due to Stamina mode which goal is to extend battery life.


  1. Go to Phone settings > Battery > menu ‘⁝’ (in the top right corner) > Battery optimisation (or Power-saving exceptions) > Apps > Check Amiko.
  2. Before you start recording your walk, disable Stamina mode.
  3. Before you start recording your walk, close all other apps.

By following these tips, Amiko should no longer have recording problems. If the problem persists (or if you have other problems), please feel free to contact me through the Suggestions & Feedback button in the app.
