SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE4 Love this app with Sphero 2.0 hardware! Would rate 5 starts ☄️if devs can remove enabling the GPS location feature every single time user wish to use Sphero 2.0 with the new Marshmellow 6.0.1 update. Don't see the point to enable location services just to make a BT connection with Sphero 2.0. ALSO, it would be good practise if you can add this instruction information on your Sphero Play Store app page for new commers with Marshmellow devices to be aware of enabling location services!
The apps of Sphero are not working at all. They either crash or do not connect. I have android 6.0 on a one plus 3.The interface is really bad and its not user friendly at all . Pls optimize all your app for the bugs that are in one plus 3. And pls launch an update to make the rolling dead more user friendly and the option to turn AR off.
UPDATE: Sphero repLIED to my review. The fact is, despite their claim, the permissions are NOT "absolutely necessary"! For example, there is no necessity for the permission to "retrieve running apps" and has zero business using location tracking. (It's not needed for bluetooth despite their claims in other review replies.) Of course, with these unethical permissions, it doesn't surprise me that the company is unethical in its replies. REVIEW: I didn't spend all this money so a toy could spy on my children! Shame on Sphero and Orbotix! UPDATE: More than a year later, Orbotix/Sphero still has the spyware permissions, and you still don't get everything you over-paid for when you bought it. Why does Orbotix/Sphero want to spy on our children and steal our device's information?
Doesn't connect with Android 6, does with 5.1 On Android 6, pairing is successful but the Sphero App never connects to Sphero. On a phone running 5.1 no problems. When it works, it does what it says on the tin. Have the same problem with Ollie.
The app is not working on Nexus7 again. The app can't find my sphero. It did work at one point this year. Update: it connects with location services enabled.
Please fix bug on this latest Sphero app 4.2. It cannot detect Sphero with Samsung GT-N7000 (android 4.1.2). Previous version working fine until this update. Thanks for your concern, sphero team. --------------------------------- Thanks for your reply, Sphero team. Is there a way i can download previous version of Sphero App (APK file)?
