Allow review to continue after pause

Hi. I like to work my flashcards during commercials or stoplights or other periodic events as I have time. Please consider making a review something that can continue/survive between pauses. Current behavior of Studies is that when I turn off my phone's screen and stop reviewing for a while I then have to start an entirely new review. I would prefer to have the app come back up in the state I left it when I paused/stopped/turned of my iPhone screen.

For example, I am reviewing 40 items. I am on the answer page of item 15 and the light turned green. I turn off the iPhone screen, put the phone down, and drive. At the next red light I pick up the phone, turn it on, but Studies has reset itself back to the main review page rather than back to the review I was currently in. Having it leave off where I was would be hugely helpful.

    Hi Ed,
    It should already behave the way you describe. It does track where it is in the slideshow, and even will sync that to other devices.
    Are you sure it is not working?
    I guess there may be cases where the review would stop, but they should be reasonably rare. Note also that if the review screen is gone, there is an option to 'Continue Previous', which will take you back where you were.
    Kind regards,
