Playback stops when the screen is turned off (Huawei & Honor devices)

Some Huawei & Honor devices seem to kill the app as soon as the screen is turned off.
To prevent this please remove both Podcast Addict AND Chrome from the device Optimized apps list

Please follow the steps below to do this:
1. Open the Settings app on your phone (Pull down the notifications shade, and tap the gear in the upper right corner, or find “Settings” in the App Drawer)
2. Tap Battery
3. Tap the menu button and choose "Battery optimization"
4. Tap the drop down menu at the top of the screen and select "All apps"
5. Scroll down to Podcast Addict, tap it and select "Don't Optimize" 

Then you will have to add Podcast Addict AND Chrome to the device PROTECTED apps list (tutorial)
