App and product are 99% impossible to use. factory reset on devices does not work. Try to change URL in beacon app always says "modify successful" but no changes. tried this in 2015 and now again at the end of 2017. product and software unusable. Waste of time and money.
Kept crashing for a while, finally back up and running now and very easy to use. Love it! 👍👍
I honestly have to say that you should not buy beacons from April brothers because of this app. Constant crashes, no way to change a password of a beacon. terrible
I can't recommend this as the ap won't connect to the beacon now, and kept crashing the few times it would. Customer support from the seller is really slow too, skip this and look for something better.
This app significantly reduces the utility of the April Brother beacon products with its poor quality. Until it's repaired, you should buy beacons from another manufacturer who makes a working means of setting their beacons. This app makes it impossible to properly program one of the April Brother beacons in any reasonable amount of time. It crashes quite a lot. When it's not crashing, it tends not to find its own beacons when other beacon apps see them just fine. It often displays a non-existent beacon with UUID all zeroes and MAC all the hex byte "12" instead of a valid received beacon list. When setting a feature of a beacon, it often says it's succeeded but the value on the beacon remains unchanged. Parameters like the password and the transmit interval must only be set in iBeacon mode, not Eddystone. The internationalization is poor. The app asks you to set the beacon password when it means for you to enter the existing beacon password. Some error messages are rendered in Han Chinese characters even when you have the English version of the app. When editing beacon parameters, it sometimes takes a long time to accept an input character.
Worked... For a while It worked wonderfully. Until I set power to -1. After that I can list the beacon but not get or modify settings. Even if the beacon is 1cm away from my phone.
1. Fixed some bugs that caused the crash.
2. Improve the success rate of modification.
