Broken after update

Dear Sony Developers,
Before the most recent PlayMemories Mobile update, you were able to press the sleep(power) button on your iPhone while the app was open to turn off/sleep your iPhone screen. Once pressed again, it would bring back your screen and the app is open like before you put your screen to sleep. Now, the app auto-closes and you have to re-open it and re-connect after pressing the sleep button which makes it very frustrating to use. Please fix this issue when you get the chance. Thank you!

Update causing crashes...

I have a Sony DSC QX10 which uses this app as a viewfinder, so if the app isn't working, the camera isn't really working. I used to only have problems with how slow this app is, and I just worked with that, but now every time I use the self timer (which is already annoying because it won't stay on for multiple shots) makes the app crash right as it takes the picture. So I have to restart the app every 30 seconds or so..

I love the idea of the QX10 but I'll be returning it if this app isn't fixed ASAP.

Works fine on IPhone 6

Not sure what's going on with others for this app to get such low reviews but it works great on my IPhone 6 and brand new Sony A5100. It does what it's supposed to do, gives me remote control over photo and video through wifi. Very simple and pretty awesome feature.
