Need new update on "usage metre" I just want to know, if any always on-hotspot rejects my username and password even though they correct, does it mean I've reached my monthly limit? I would also appreciate it if you guys could update the usage centre because I still strugle to know exactly when I'm near my limit. This includes wifi and mobile data usage, so far I do like the app, but would appreciate if that could b fixed.
Very annoying behaviour by Always On app Why does the app blot out the screen you're working on when it tries to connect to the network? This is unbelievably irritating. It should work unobtrusively in the background and just display a brief pop-up (if it absolutely has to display anything at all) when a successful connection is negotiated.
Ok but needs some work; 1) Doesn't connect well with AlwaysOn@ type networks (McD, KFC, etc). Often get error msg. 2) Didn't work for "first-use" of an AlwaysOn account 3) Needs a retry limit for failed connections. In scenario 1 it keeps cycling through connecting/failed so phone doesn't fall back to 3G/4G network Would also be good to be able to set a "priority" order for networks in the preferred list.
Because first u said 3G For R39 and then they took R468 this totally robbery. Since from first day still now not working for me this is totally destroy me or other people's please do something fair!! I need my money back!!
Battery drain and pop ups The constant foreground pop ups that occur whenever in range of an AlwaysOn network are annoying, especially when walking through a shopping centre with multiple networks. The battery drain by the app when checking the wifi networks and attempting authentication is also far too much. Although the auto login feature seems to be working, these other two issues make the app less than useful
Spent a year with the 1G/mth Samsung package. Doesn't recognise AlwaysOn networks most of the time, and when it does, you get disconnected because the connection is too slow. Save your time and frustration and simply don't bother try connecting to AlwaysOn. More pain than the 'free' 50Mb you are not going to get anyway is worth. The annual packages are more expensive than mobile data at R50/GB. The monthly packages aren't worth it unless you spend a lot of time near hotspots (at least 10 days a month). This begs the question why you would buy wifi? The app itself is pretty average and only slightly less painful to use than their hotspot landing page. Seamless connectivity this is not.
