Would be a great idea if it worked Fired up the ilo and attempted to get to the remote console, only to have it error every time. I've submitted the error. It's a RuntimeException because it can't start the activity due to a NullPointerException bubbled up from com.hp.essn.iss.ilo.iec.spa.SPAKeyboard.Init. Fix the error and I'll try again.
Good idea, bad implementation What is that awful keyboard? Iy's such a pain to type a real password. The mouse implementation is bad as well. Useless on a phone. Take 5 random rdp apps and you'll see how a mouse is supposed to work on a touch device. So, the remote console is pretty useless. And the iLO web page can be accessed the same in a web browser. Take a look at Synology mobile apps to see a job well done.
App crashes on launching remote console The app crashes every time I try to launch the remote console. Which is really the only reason I installed the app in the first place. If I wanted to access the Web interface I'd do it through the native browser.
Poor usability on tablet Besides being difficult to use on a tablet (due to key size) the wonky integrated keyboard won't let me enter numbers, only symbols. Android already has great built in keyboard functionality - why did HP reinvent the wheel here?
Like HP's web site and all of their other software when it works its clunky and unusable. But you don't have to worry about that because most of the time it just doesn't work.
How is the keyboard meant to be usable? On LG G3 and the keyboard in this app is rubbish. Can't actually see any of the letters as the keyboard is all squished. Why even go to the effort of developing a keyboard in the app when all android phones have keyboards built into their OSes?!? Great idea, and great on Windows, but this android version is useless.
This version includes a number of fixes and enhancements:
• Limited additional translations for Thai, French, and German
