Huge potential but too many issues I just finished a 30 min track session while recording it using this app. Here are the issues I found using my HTC M8 phone: 1.) Gauge playback intermittent: When about 5 minutes into a video file playback, the gauges begin to studder or completely freeze until 15 min into the video, then freeze again. This happens even though bluetooth data stream is working/there is PID data. So it's a playback bug. 2.) Poor audio in exported encoded video file on PC: Audio stream heavily compressed. Not an option.
Some more options needed Nice addon to a fantastic app. There are several drawbacks that can be fixed to make it even better: 1. Focus setting. E.g. my camera tries to autofocus on different object while recording at night. Infinite fixed focus option would be perferct. 2. Recorded files do not appear in the gallery. 3. Video recording settings are too few.
Samsung galaxy s4. My only problem is I can't use it in the background. If I want to record I need to keep this app up front. Doesn't work too clever when need a satellite navigation application on at the same time.
Read the first 10 Post other people have posted. As they list all of The Same Problems I am having and see with this app. The TORQUE APP itself is truly AWESOME! But This Application STILL needs a LOT of work Still Yet. Developer needs to read what users of this Application are Saying about IT. DEVELOPER PLEASE FIX THIS APP ALREADY.
Add Display fails Tried to add a display to track recorder (HP and HPOP ) and the app dies. Wanted to try the recorder on a heavy haul for my mechanic friend but.... Oh well.
great add-on to Torque, but.. great add-on to Torque, but 1) the gauges do not rotate if the phone rotates. This is a bad thing. 2) when you are in video mode, there is not a clock gauge / overlay. 3) There should be a way so the video only records video and no sound. 4) Lastly, it would be nice if the video recording has a faint image of the gauges you have placed over the video and have the gauges be somewhat transparent. Other wise, good app.
* Fix for a bug that crept into the build process and prevented adding new displays(sorry that one slipped through!)
* Minor update to fix a few reported bugs - more to come in future updates soon as I'm working on updating the encoding plugins
