I really wanted this to work.. But rule 1 of making public apps - make it easy to use (I'm a software developer and it took me 30 minutes to figure out how to add a project..) with clear instructions, not just "unable to add project". Rule 2 - make it work. All projects keep updating and not doing anything else. I have 0 tasks and no data is being crunched. My phine being plugged in and charged. Please fix it so it works at least. :)
I have managed to add one project. But after it i cant add another projects, i just see an empty list without chance to add smth in projects menu subfolder. Also it just do not start operating, when all conditions are fine (90% battery charge). Complete mess. I want to thank boinc project for ability of easy civil science, but, guys, yoy should to smth with this app. It s full of bugs
Simply will not work on an Asus Zenphone, hanging on the initial splash screen. This has been ongoing for over a year now; every couple of months I install it, discover it still doesn't work and uninstall it again. It's a shame; my computers and other Android bits crunch away merrily doing their bit for science, but this one phone is left on the sidelines. :(
Volunteer distributed computing is a great concept. BOINC makes it easy for a group to create a project, and for people to volunteer their devices. I use BOINC on all of my Android devices as well as my PC. If every Android device ran BOINC overnight while plugged in, science projects would have a lot more computing power with minimal cost to the device owners. *After upgrading my phone from Android 6 to Android 7, BOINC tasks are only running on 1 CPU core. BOINC can see the multiple cores and attempts to run multiple tasks, so I'm guessing there is a compatibility problem with Android 7 Nougat.
Really unobtrusive. Doesn't make phone hot, unlocking lock screen longer, while being able to really compute something. However tried only Collatz conjencture project. Has UI problems such as it doesn't show if project have binaries for android/arm, it can be determined only after registering and trying to run.
Works for WCG Works for WCG. but for seti it always says get 0 task while the seti server is fine and sending work unit to my PC boinc. Also the Rosetta (mini) saying does not support this device (Nexus 6p) for computing. I've added 3 projects but only 1 is working. Also the interface is blank (only show continue button) when I try to add more projects.
New to 7.4.53:
* Add support for new processor types.
* Update support libraries.
