Android API 26 fix in my APP - convert background service (GCM) to JobScheduler

I have one App based on open source Android App Flym: [login to view URL], v1.9.7

It is crashing in Android 8.0 (API level 26) due to Android new background limits: (explanation here: [login to view URL] )

The thrown error is a IllegalStateException when I call the RSS feed service (file [login to view URL]) in [login to view URL](). The error is also described in stackOverflow here: [login to view URL]

The suggested fix is to move on, from background service, to JobScheduler or JobIntentService. Some say it would be possible just to call startForegroundService instead but I understand it is not correct.

* * * THE TASK * * *

Migrate the AutoRefreshService to a JobScheduler, then the IllegalStateException is not thrown in Android 8.0 anymore.

*Extra info

- The original source code project migrated to Kotlin in its version 2.0;

- I can give access to additional files through request, but the two most important are attached.

* * * EXTRA TASK * * *
I just figured out that, because of moving from API level 25 to 28, the dependencies were broken. So please update your prices to include the gradle dependency fix.
