First of all; just because you do not have a phone that is compatible with this app doesn't mean it deserves a 1 star review. The poor reviews seem to all have operator error involved. Secondly; this app is awesome! I just kind of poked around in it for now. I LOVE how informative it is. I also love that it's a community science experiment to an extent, who wouldn't want to contribute to something so amazing that doesn't come around so often?! I look forward to testing out the practice run that's available on the app. I don't wanr to screw up in the very short window we all have to capture something that will only come around once in my lifetime! I live in St Louis and will be in totality, I'm so excited and hope to contribute!
When I launched the app I got a message that my phone, Galaxy S5, does not allow manual control of the sensors so I can't take pictures of the eclipse. :/ I plan on trying anyway on my own since I'm in the path of totality. Also, the countdown timer doesn't work. All numbers just show '90'.
My camera on the LG sunset is not set up for this app
Does this app nonetheless require a filter and or solar eclipse sun glasses?
I installed the app but it does not show up on my phone, and now I can not install it again.
Looks good but when I tried to do the test it closed and won't reopen. If it stays like this it's useless. Hoping to get it to work. More later if I can get it up and running.
