3) Launch soundcloud 
4) Find long sound file play it. User chose a pod cast (doug loves minis)
5) User went to search (magnifying glass icon). User searched for Neptunes.
6) User found a song (second in the list), loaded its page, and hit play 

Sound cloud closed while attempting to play a song

Phone performs while using apps, especially very popular and widely used apps.

After the user crashed the first time. The app crashed almost every subsequent attempt to use the app to play a song. Podcast's seemed to have a much better rate of being able to play (1/5) than songs.

I am using the new (4/29) PAC file/Base

Repro frequency: 1/5: after initial crash, the user crashed 50-60% (attempted over 20 times)
