    Thanks for the update, Lénárd. I understand your position : I had to declare a few no-go's in my carreer, despite all the pressure we had. There are times when it's worth waiting :)

    Hi, We are working hard on it. I've not allowed to the public testing yet, because the release still had some bugs. The whole app is rewritten from the scratch so there is a lot thing to test it out.

    I hope we will do the public test in _this_ week!

    Thanks for your patience.

    Thanks a lot, Marc!

    No, I forgot to clear data/pairing... and now it works perfectly (ota and control) YEAH !!!

    Now I just have to wait for the new app version ;)

    Hi Philippe,

    You have certainly cleared all the cache data, Bluetooth pairing data, etc... before trying anything ?

    Can you test the same processes from another Android device ? The key problem with Android is the way it is implemented by all these manufacturers: it's a real jungle where everyone does what he wants...

    OK, more tests... I tried my other Sbrick that was still with FW 4.0, and the OTA update went fine! Yeah!!!

    Now the bad news:

    - Trying to use the device control results in a crash

    - Trying to do an OTA update from 4.4 to 4.4 fails at 2%.

    Finally took the time of testing the latest Simple App on my Asus ME572C (Android 5.0.1)... and it doesn't work :(

    - The Sbrick is properly detected

    - If I launch OTA update , Simple App tells me that I have firmware 4.3 installed and that 4.4 is available.

    - When I launch the update, it "reliably fails" at 2%, telling that connexion was lost. Tried to restart Sbrick, app, tablet to no avail, still fails at 2%

    - If I nonetheless try to control the device in 4.3 firmware, the app crashes :(

    Hi Guys,

    About the new android application: the public test will starts at end of the next week ;)

    The bluetooth engine will be the same as what's in the Simple Control application.
    So please if you haven't tested the simple control application yet, do it now and share with us your experiences. So far it's seems it works perfectly on every android device which has 4.3 or better android version. You can download the simple control application here:  https://www.dropbox.com/s/crziibp5nyzsgag/simplecontrol-201510021700.apk?dl=0

    Thanks for your patience.

    I reported that display/color bug using the app about 5 month ago...is good to know that 5 month has pass and there is not solution.

    https://social.sbrick.com/forums/topic/111/profile-designer/view/page/9

    Hi Guys

    A few weeks ago, I ordered 2 SBricks, and I don't get it run with my Galaxy A5. Fortunately, i had an "old" IPhone 4S, with this one, it (techically) works fine.

    So far so good, I designed a profil in 3:2 Ratio, but cannot download it. Reading through this forum, I find out that I have to use 16:9 Ratio, which will sqeeze the profil to 3:2 Ratio, which looks weird. Well, it works, but whats really disapointing, is that Peter Schubert mentioned this issue in Feb 2015 (10 month ago !!!) and it's still not fixed.

    Is it that difficult, to change this setting from your side ?

    Any statements for this issue, guys ?

    Regards Frank

    btw: checked the 4s specs @apple.com: 960/640 pixel, which is 3:2 !

    I understand your problem. I foward this issue to the iOS developers. Hopefully they will fix it soon.

    I hope the display issue that has been obeserved several times will be solved in the new release. I had not seen it for a while, it has re-appeared tonight.

    Hereafter:

    - The background I use in my profile

    - How the profile looks like in the Profile Designer

    - How it is rendered by the Android App

    Thanks for the report Marc, I forwarded this to the dev team.

    Hi Guys,

    Thanks for all the input and updates. It all sounds fantastic and I can't wait to try the next app version. 

    I also found the android app development roadmap, and understand that the joystick profile is on the "to-do" list which is great.

    I too find it hard waiting, but I'd rather the developer's take their time to deliver a quality product than something that may have major bugs in it :)

    Thanks,

    Dan

    Hi Guys,

    The new app worked quite well on some devices, but  on another devices (for example on LG g3 and Samsung galaxy tab) the app crashed sometimes. Today morning we tested a new version, and it seems our developers found what was the problem :) We will test a new version today afternoon or tomorrow. Hopefully it will works without problems on all devices. Thanks for your patience.

    Hi Dan,

    The Sbrick team will certainly confirm that, but I don't the joystick profile is available in the Android App.

    Maybe in this v2.0 that we are all looking forward to get ;)
