He's not really interested in customers Installed, requested passcode, sent scan of radio license immediately to expedite process. Emailed 8 days later to see what's up, no response. Got an rote request to send in scanned copy of license about 10 days after request, said I'd done that already, no response. Asked if he found that email, no response. Found the algorithm to calculate my own passcode and went on my merry way. Still no response. Reminds me of going to a cafe in Paris and making the mistake of not speaking French like a native. It bothers me to give anyone this uninterested in his customers any money. I guess he's riding on being the only halfway decent APRS app out there. That'll change.
Still waiting for a pass code Seems like a good app, but the value depends on getting a pass code. I requested one nearly two weeks ago and have heard nothing. I emailed the developer and got no response. If I'm paying $5 for an app, waiting this long to be able to use it is unacceptable.
Best APRS App By Far Great features and great development. Few suggestions - allow selection of common APRS symbols rather than text entry, it's annoying to look it up; and bring back imperial units, I'm all for going to metric, but i'll always use miles as long as I'm in the US.
I had only one problem I just got the app working on my nexus 7. I am using the mobilnkd TNC with a Alinco DJ-V57. It also works with the server mentioned in the setup note about using a LotW certificate for authentication. I had a problem getting it transmit, but I got a hint from the FAQ that helped me find the problem. It appears that the app will not send a report unless it gets a current good location from the GPS. I was testing the system in my basement! All I needed to do was to move upstairs.
This slow for a paid app? Can't tell you how it works because they still haven't provided a pass code.
Lacking ability to easily send a message more than once I bought this to spot myself for SOTA. Unfortunately you cannot easily resend a message (spot) as it takes 7 steps each time to resend the message once more. I am sending as audio from the speaker on my S5 to the mic on my ham radio. Works fine but for SOTA spots it is lacking. Would also be nice if you could decode any ack/duplicate etc messages right after you tx the audio.
