Using it now at a conference and just noticed that the listed begin time for some of the sessions are chop off on the agenda module. Seems like this only happens for times that are between 10:00a and 12:59p (e.g. "four digits") Using pixel 1 xl. Otherwise helpful so far.
(Edited 8/16/18) Just got back from another Convention and the fresh updates seemed to have fixed the problem. Thanks for fixing it! ---------- (Original post) I was just at an convention this past weekend that created use of this app. Unfortunately none of the happening alarms I set worked. I did not get a single notification or alert for any of the happenings I wanted to attend and as a effect ended up missing a few. This feature used to work. What happened to it?
This application is great, and has a lot of information on vendors and programs. The map can also present specific vendor information if you select the spot they are on the map. If they had more time options for schedule reminders like 1 hour or two instead of 1 day, 30 minutes, and now, it would be even better.
The application is nice to have when going to a convention, but for some reason it runs horribly on my Axon 7 to the point where it is unusable. If you wait 2-5 mins after opening the application will usually begin working, but when you begin it the screen will usually go black and the phone starts to slow down.
Awesome application ruined by one infuriating feature: random & frequent "Update complete!" messages which lose your put in a list of potentially thousands of schedules activities (in the case of MozFest) and jump you back to the top of the list. Makes me wish to throw my phone in the sea.
Currently at convention. Application is crashing beautiful regularly. Force quit does not resolve. I have to clear cache/data and redownload guide. Doing that over LTE means I'm paying for the same download over a dozen times now. If there aren't devs running this instability down now, you guys don't clearly understand your core use case.
This application was a unbelievable one, until it stopped working. Now, despite being connected to a strong, solid wireless connection signal, even after uninstalling and reinstalling the app, rebooting the phone, and switching between a few various wireless connection connections, it STILL says it is not connected ti the internet. Not sure what happened, but it is infuriating.
Its OK but I am listening to a foreign language station on 7.120 MHz and the signal is weak but readable. This is in the 40 meter ham band and most broadcasters honor the agreement to stay above 7200 KHz but obviously this one isn't. But I STILL wish to know what station it is but no joy using this application to search out. I have the paid ver and this is the 3rd occurrence like this. Being a ham radio op for 34 years and a swl for 62 years means its not my first weekend out. These listings are not kept up to date as they should be. Disappointing. This is an exotic station so necessary to know for those of us who like to hunt for the rare DX. :-(
Would be 5 but it's crashed a few times recently (7.1.1 Xperia Z5) and won't begin at the moment but I'm hoping it's a glitch as it's unbelievable when it's going, really can't do without it as it's like WRTH, Passport to... Etc on your phone. Hope it's going again soon and then with glitch sorted it's a 5.5 tbh
This is indispensable for me during my nightly SWL sessions. The schedule is always spot on and the mapping of the transmitter is very helpful for pining down which station your listening to on a crowded band. I wouldn't mind a dark/black US since I hold the room dark to reduce interface and the white is hard on the eyes. Also expanding on the Log features would be great.
Takes forever to load database when it does load. Can't obtain the logger to log. I place in the frequency and time and press find and I obtain nothing. Will hold trying but not to impressed right now. What am I doing wrong? I am not God's bonus to the android device world, but I am not stupid either. Support
Works amazing for me! Just because the station says its on does not mean you will be able to keep it where you live because that's the method short wave propagation works! The. program is amazing it works fine for me on my cell phone. I'm glad that this program is available to use. I am now using it on ZTE phone, it uses Android device 4.4.4 and I cannot access the menu at the bottom of the screen anymore. Which renders the program useless. Maybe they could modernize their program to work with Android device 4.4.4.
Amazing ideas. Fairly simple to use. Can you please fix it when you modernize ''now'' in a meterband that it stays in the mb not goes back to 75mb. It doesn't list slightly out of band frequencies. Improvement - when it shows a station in a meterband click on it to search other frequencies. Please improve it.
