Why does the app continue/won't stop playing after I close or exit the app? (Android)

You might have intended to stop playing by the following ways: 
1. Swipe the player off in the notification menu
2. Open the running programs list and clear Castbox out
3. Run the command Close All

However, they all won't work.

Please note that you have to stop/pause the playback first before you close the app. Otherwise, the audio will still be going on.
