    Bug is still there on Android builds done with Unity 5.5.1f1
    (resuming back to app kills audio of the app)
    I'm thinking of rolling back to Unity 5.0.1

    I have never seen a paid framework ($225/mon) that contains so many bugs and regressions. Besides this audio issue I had to submit my app with a blurry icon. Unbelievable!
