Review from Edward Robertson
this app works very well when I'm sitting and lounging in my chair at my TV by my living room it is very comfortable to communicate with other amateurs without having to go to the ham shack or to the motor vehicle to communicate with a radio. I don't need a big linear amplifier to communicate around the world I can hit Korea repeaters China repeaters Japan repeaters in San Juan and communicate with amatures around the world
Edit Text box not working, it always comes up blank and no way to bring up keyboard to use it bUsing this with absolutely no issues on my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. I do have one request since I'm visually impaired I use voice notifications on my phone. When in a QSO it would be nice if the "EchoLink is logged in message was disabled. When transmitting I get my female voice saying "Notification from EchoLink, EchiLink is logged in"every few minutes and it gets transmitted through the mic.
Nice version for mobile. Very good app. An excellent balance of features and ease of use, for when you're not able to use the PC software. My only issue has been with having connection problems on busy conference servers, which requires restarting the app to resolve. I've been using it for several years and it's been a lot of fun.
Useless Downloaded it, set it up, failed with it, deleted it. Don't waste your time. Samsung Galaxy 4. Also useless on Droid RAZR running latest iteration of Android software. Clumsy interface with hopelessly complex menu of stations available. It is well worth the price paid.
I can't load it on my android. It says it's compatible, but also says it is already installed. Unfortunately I can't find the EchoLink ICON nor can I find it in my installed apps. Apparently there is a JAVA code error on the WEB site that if a load fails, it simply says it's already installed, you can't delete something that's not there so that it can be restarted. Help! OK, so here's an update, after contacting EchoLink support and trying multiple times, I was successful in downloading the software and now I'm a happy camper. Don't understand what changed, but this made me very happy.
Keeps re-starting It's nice that the headphone option was added. Still can't use node numbers (or even see them) with the app. I've read the instructions on how to close the app, but it keeps restarting over and over again until force closed or phone is re-booted.
I've not been able to find documentation. Where are the instructions on using Bluetooth connectivity? Both of my issues have been addressed, but it's still touchy about hands free operation with the Bluetooth headset. What button is the PTT on the headset? Mine either wants to play music or do voice command.
Proper handling of IPv6 cellular connections.
Action Bar layout to support full menus on all devices.
Bluetooth audio support.
Updated ITU country prefixes.
Option to use headset button as PTT switch.
Option to vibrate on connect.
Support for selectable code pages (character sets) in Text view.
