RFCx app bug?

Hi Alex, Sorry for the slow reply--was out deploying AudioMoths last week! I just downloaded and tried the Android AudioMoth app several times. The time set on the AudioMoth when I plugged it into the computer was correct every time. So, it seems this error is isolated to the RFCx Companion app. I reinstalled the Companion app today, tried it on a different AudioMoth, and encountered the same problem. (The devices are keeping time normally when plugged in to the computer.) Another question--I noticed that the Companion app seems to switch the AudioMoth into a "listening mode" (indicated by solid red LED + flashing green LED) when the AudioMoth is switched from USB/OFF mode into CUSTOM mode while a long tone is playing. I had been testing the Companion app in a room full of already-programmed AudioMoths that were turned to CUSTOM mode. When I encountered the time setting bug, I was worried that the chime would have incorrectly reset the time on all of the AudioMoths in the room. After I experimented with the app a little bit more, I found that it seemed the AudioMoths can only be programmed by chime when they are in the solid red LED + flashing green LED mode. Is that true, or are there any other modes in which the AudioMoth time could be reprogrammed by chime? The chime pattern used by the two apps is different; does this behavior vary by app? On a related note, the Android AudioMoth app doesn't seem to have a similar behavior where it switches the AudioMoth into the chime-listening mode. Is it true that the AudioMoth app would only be able to set the time on the AudioMoth if (1) the AudioMoth lost time due to loss of batteries, or (2) the AudioMoth was configured with the "Always require acoustic chime on switching to CUSTOM" option? Just want to be sure I understand these correctly. Thanks!
