I had connection issues from the get go and had kind of given up. Tried again today and after two hours I learned from another customer comment that it doesn't work at all on Oreo. My hardcopy instructions said to follow the instructions in the app. There are none, nor any indication of if it is trying to work or what the problem might be. I am unbelievably disappointed in this product.
I was so happy with my Podo until last update... Now it won't connect to my Samsung Galaxy S8. The camera some how connects to the app because I changed the name of the device and that works fine, the new name appears in the app but I can't take pictures or see my older pictures stored in the Podo. Please fix it, the warranty was only for six months but I think this is a software issue, my camera is always on my desk nothing that could've caused problems happened to the camera. Please give support to your customers.
The biggest issue is connectivity. Even with August update my two podo devices only communicate breily with my S8. They the devices go intermittent to connect or lock up entirely and are undiscoverable in the app. I had a great time on my S6 and software from 2016. Wish there was just more I could do or be functional.
Not great connectivity and unfriendly interface. On top of that the application does NOT work on. Android oreo and its not declared anywhere. Support is less than useful as doesn't even reply to emails. I want a refund!
Like almost everyone else, I had connectivity issues but am so glad i figured out how to use it after reading another review. For all of those it's been failing for, here is my advice! 1.) turn off your Wi-Fi 2.) turn on your Bluetooth 3.) turn on the podo app 4.) place your fully charged podo on your phone. Let it connect! Give it a full 30 seconds without doing anything and it should connect. 5) do NOT hit the podo name when your podo has been recognized. This will cancel the attempt at connection. 6) if leaving it there alone for 1-2 minutes doesnt work, then hit connect podo at the top. 7) your podo will light up and you can now use it! Goodluck! ☺
