Some smart people came up with and designed this Stratos card. Why they are unable to release a version of the app that is able to function with a simple card reader is totally beyond me. Wouldn't be a big deal if I could enter the card data in manually, but that's not an option. Guess I'll keep my fingers crossed for the next update..... Update: Still broken as of 1.1.5... Update 2: 1.2.2 worked great. Till Marshmallow. Now it's broken again...
Would be nice to use my card So my phone now runs on 6.0, has been for a long while. My Stratos card has been collecting dust since apparently no one is interested in working on a fix. App crashes when trying to add my cards back, Card refuses to sync to my phone, etc. My membership is a complete waist of money at this point. Stratos, you really should compensate your members for this. I'm probably not going to renew my membership if this is how life "with" the Stratos card is going to be.
Sorry I bought the card New LG phone update with 6.0 Marshmellow, card and reader are useless now. Apparently a bug in Bluetooth. Since my other Bluetooth devices work. I am holding Stratos accountable not Verizon or droid.
Works on my Nexus 5 Marshmallow with the 6.0.1! After a long wait for Android developers to release a fix for the Bluetooth bug that has prevented the Stratos Card from pairing the 6.0.1 release seems to have done it. I ignored the pop up about not working on Marshmallow and gave it a go anyway after the 6.0.1 update and was pleasantly surprised. So far I've had no issues using the card.
Works with Android 6.0.1 After about 6 months since I got my first Stratos card. I think it finally might work. They sent me a replacement card after my first card would fail to swipe nearly 100% of the time. The new card didn't work with Android 6.0, but pairs with 6.0.1. Arghh! Now my card reader doesn't work! They sent me a type B reader when the type A didn't work. I now have a Nexus 6P, I have a bad feeling their new type C reader is what I need. WTF?
UPDATE: Android 6.0.1 on stock Nexus 5x now works. Got the card setup now just need to go use it. Still hate they sold out to some other company.
- Fixed a few small bugs
- Enhanced performance of card reader
- Improved error handling
- Determined root cause of Android 6.0 Bluetooth issues
Stratos Card is currently incompatible with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. A recent change in the Android Bluetooth implementation disrupts communication between the card and device.
We have identified the issue and await a fix in an update to Marshmallow. If you have any questions please email email@example.com.
