Updated from the Play Store, tested, and verified working! Damn fine work, sir.

Fantastic news! I'll inform the relevant parties.

Works as expected! Thanks for the expeditious assistance!

Our dev team recommends to wait for an official release to update the app on our production units. When would an official release with this patch be available?

Always Reload is off, and we would prefer for it to remain off for various reasons.
The URL is nearly the same. The scanned barcode is appended to the base URL as a parameter, and the page is refreshed using that URL. I'm not sure of the exact mechanism(s) being used.

Richard, I tested the apk, and it seems like the timer is now broken when the page is reloaded with intent. The timer does not start until the next user interaction(touch action). I tested twice with the same behavior and waited 3x the idle timeout both times to confirm the issue.
