This app does work perfectly on ios devices.However the android version is flawed with connection issues. To anyone who is having trouble.... 1. Turn on the swing 2. Connect via Bluetooth in phone settings. 3. Open app and connect to swing drone. 4. Once connected to drone go back to phone settings and pair with controller. 5. Reopen app and connect with controller. (If you turn on controller before drone it will not let you connect to drone via android.) Also if you havent updated the software on the swing and controller do it now it fixed many issues for me! I hope this helps everyone. Cheers!!!
Won't connect to drone. Drone visible and paired to phone Bluetooth but App gets stuck on connection page until drone times out and switches off. Now have an expensive ornament instead of a working drone. Rubbish.
Solved Bluetooth connection issue. DO NOT PAIR UP IN BLUETOOTH OPTIONS. Switch your Bluetooth on then go to the app. It will then allow you to connect with no problem. Something to do with the low power standard. If to pair it with your device first it will not connect and will drive you crazy.
The App is ok though Parrot clearly favours Apple users. Lots of functionality unavailable to Android users. Running this on a Samsung note edge. The bluetooth in the drone will alwys have difficulty connecting to Android if there are any other bluetooth devices around or if it was previously connected to another Bluetooth device. This part sucks because you spend more time trying to connect than flying. Try placing both devices in a Faraday cage to properly connect. Bluetooth is a bad protocol for drone control. Have 2 parrot drones and won't buy another because I don't use any apple products.
Terrible app using an android phone. Connects maybe once in every 25 tries. Have tried restarting the phone and reinstalling the app. Garbage, and I've only been able to fly the drone half a dozen times since Xmas.
The range isnt that far. I flown this drone with many devices and after its 5 feet from you its non controllable. It takes off on its own and hits things. Not good. Maybe you guys should make an actual controller you can purchase for these, the phone just don't cut it with or without the controller that holds your phone... I flew mine one time and it took off and broke the prop. So I just dont fly it, I'll probably give it away. Even thou I paid $100+ im not going to sell it to someone acting like its all good.
