GPS bug locks control of screen

Hi, I recently tried the GPS Stream widget, and after giving it permission to use the device GPS data, the Blynk app stopped responding. When I start the app, the screen flashes several times before becoming stable, then once it is open, I cannot change tabs or move to the screen edit view. My device is a Samsung A90. I deleted Blynk from the device and reloaded so will now have the latest version, but the problem returned again as soon as I granted the widget permission. I had to uninstall again and reinstall then deny access to the GPS data in order to delete the widget from the screen.

@BlynkAndroidDev this sounds similar to this issue…

Pete.

Yes it does

A new build with the fix to this issue should be available to update soon.
