That's great. Yeah, the temp fix is just to disable the auto locking feature such as op mentioned... that's what I'll do in the meantime.
Alternatively, there are other apps that I have on my phone which will continue to work in the background (such as Pandora, YouTube Music, etc. IMO, allowing the app to run in the background would be preferred to lock prevention, since you would also gain a little battery life by having the screen turned off.
That said, I'll take what I can get and totally appreciate how quickly you guys are taking care of this issue.
