Timesheet comments being lost on Andriod.

On iOS, the comments pages has "Cancel" or "Save".

On Android, though, there is only a "Save"... and the left arrow (navigate back up the menu tree), and the right arrow (view project details) both cause any drafted comment text to be lost.  It's inconsistent with typical Android UI styles, so users are unexpectedly losing their typed in comments.

I request that on Android either:

(a) when the user leaves the page without savings they be warned (i.e., "your changes will be discarded, are you sure?"), 

(b) that any unsaved comment be cached when the user leaves the page and repopulated when they return (i.e., after getting back to the timesheet and realizing that they comment bubble isn't blue), or

(c) give the user a preference setting to just automatically save the comments when they leave the page.

I, for one, would prefer to just have my comments autosaved... but I imagine some people would prefer otherwise, ergo the "preferences setting" flavor.
