hi, i downloaded the sbrick app yesterday but im unable to use several profiles because i have an iphone 4s and some of the profile is 'cut up'
will a fix be released in the next update? and will the 42030 profile among others be available also besause there is an error 'app version not compatible with profile' when i try to download it from the market
1-2) Official sets: yes, it's quite inconvenient and it doesn't make a lot of sense right now. This function will be replaced with something that's more useful and less annoying.
3) Good idea! Actually we already planning to (going to?) include certain custom profiles for a few advanced models.
4) Will investigate ;)
Thanks for the feedback, and your offer. We're counting on you guys :)
Version 3.2 (15)
Had difficulties to connect one of my SBricks. Maybe because it was also connected to the Android app.But also the other one was, and it connected to iPhone app easily. Had to shutdown power off Android tablet (turnig BT off might have worked also).
After this did not experienced anymore connection issues to the second SBrick (v4 prototype).
Besides this issue SBrick connection seems a lot more stable in this version.
I've in the market several profiles you made for me (3 for 8043, 2 for 8275).
It was one for iPad Mini and another for iPhone 5. The 3rd for 8043, I think it was a correction that ended in a ne profile. I can't test with iPad Mini anymore.
Since the names are identical this is quite confusing and testing is sometimes about trial and error to find the right profile.
When I get the iPad Mini profiles by mistake, they are too large and can't close them. Need to kill SBrick app to recover control.
Some do not show anything on screen anymore.
I believe you should rethink the profile management concept.
Better if can also have the same profile running on multiple devices, making it screen independent. Some automatic rescaling if possible/doable.
Wonder how it will work when we get profile designer and thousands of users (yes, I said thousands :D) adding new profiles to the market everyday.
Maybe they are available per user and only some pulished to everyone if the user so decides. Anyway they will grow "too much" to be easily manageable
Also something that should be easy and fast to implement. Display the app version somewhere from the home menu.
Just to make sure we easily know the version we are actually using.
Version 3.2 (15) / iPhone 5 / iOS 8.1.2
This might be not a specific iOS problem, even if it is really a problem.
But it is quite inconvinient at the minimum.
I'm using SBrick prototypes v3 and v4.1.
Recently I started to notice that connection to v4 is very hard to obatin when I start to work with my SBricks.
After sometime I realized that usually when working with these I've my iPhone 5 and Android Tablet nearby. So I found that v4 keeps connected on the tablet and iPhone can't connect to it. The same does not happen with v3 which connects to iPhone promptly.
The only solution I found to solve this, is to switch BT off in the tablet, so that I can have both SBricks on my iPhone and I can work with them.
This might be related with some firmware differences between both.
And I've not yet upgraded SBricks firmware via OTA, with the latest app version available on TestFlight. I'm afraid to lose them before the postman arrive with the definitive versions here...
Other behaviors I found:
- Very occasionally it gets not possible to connect to SBricks anymore. The only way I found to solve this is to kill SBrick app, swith BT off at iPhone, switch it back on and then launch the app again.
- After sometime use, the connection is also prone to get lost quite often. Although reconnection is possible to do manually (doesn't reconnect automatically), to have better stability and longer connection periods I must kill app and swith BT off/on.
i second Conchas ost from Dec. 22nd. I got an SBrick yesterday and put in my 42030. However i could not make it run from the iPad app since no profile was in the market. I tried it again today with my iPhone 4S, and there is a profile for it. This makes it rather complicated. The profiles should be independent from controller platform.
The second thing i ran into was the fact, that the function that once you hit the maximum power (slider to up most point) the motor stops. On the iPad app i could change this when creating a new profile, but i was not able to do this for a profile from the market (maybe i was to stupid to find it again).
3rd issue: Creating a profile for more than 2 function didn't work on the iPad. i could add a joystick an a slider but making it work idependently was not possible. Is there a tutorial?
So far for now - i should be able to explore the sBrick during the next days.
Merry Christmas to all of you!
