    Ok I am starting to understand the new version with login is available from the link on dropbox in the home page.

    The first problem is there is no version in the file name and when the app is installed the version is still 0.0.41 !

    [/blockquote]

    Frederic,

    Where did you find this dropbox link? I have no clue where to find it, and also no update in the android app-store.

    As many I am also getting kind of frustrated by the Vengit not being able to meet their own promises....

    The first problem is there is no version in the file name and when the app is installed the version is still 0.0.41 !

    And I still have connection problems!

    I can not see the slider created with the profile designer in the ports and channels

    I can not control two motors with the same slider (gamepad with buttons profile)

    The app still crash

    ...

    Indeed, open source would be so nice.

    Anyway people need the HW, so there is no loss of anything for VengIT...

    Last sbrick app (the one with profile designer feature)

     

    Still i can't discovery and connect my Sbrick.

    You guys should focus on deliver a working app, before go further.

    I couldn't agree more, Denis.

    I have been involved with software development for over 50 years (yes, I am that old) and the most basic rule is that you don't play with bells and whistles until the basic app works.

    Please, please, please if getting the software to work is beyond the capabilities of the current team make it Open Source - I'm sure that someone will be able to do the job!

    Same here. The SBrick software version is still 0.0.41.

    And it still can't discover the brick with my Op3n Dott tablet. The tablet has Intel SoC, I'm starting to think that this might be a problem.

    New app version did't solve problem of using two outputs for one function. If we assign same function for two or more outputs - only one motor will work. 
    For all I know - this is not new problem, people said about that about month ago. Should we hope that developers will undertake something soon?

    I think you can find here some guys who can help you.

    But I think you should first try to solve connections problems before adding new fuctions.

    I also think you should release more versions to let us help you to see if fixes works.

    If I agree about we need profile designer, I think you should add other functions before like using more than one SBrick to be able to use the 42009S or the ultimate version (for me I also would like to be able to control 2 channels with the same slider

     

    I think I can wait to have a full working version but I do need to see some progress...

     

    Thank you

    I have the same "long" delay. Especially when using steering control or two ports.
    When the slider quickly move in different directions, for example 20 times, brick continues to perform these commands for 15-20 seconds.

    Several times the application was closed itself.

    Inversion of ports does not always work (if on/off is the inversion).
    (Samsung Galaxy S3, 4.3)

    [/blockquote]

    Was this promlem solved? This delay limits the using of sbrick very much.

    Dear Developer Team

    As a customer (I bought sbrick after the kickstarter campaign) I ask you very curiously, when do you plan to correct the basic functions of the sbrick android application, like:

    • usable and working control profiles
    • inverting directions (for steering)
    • lag-less control
    In this situation the application can't be used for control lego creations, except some simple testing...
     
    cheers

    Yes, we are in a big delay with the android app (and windows phone too).

    Tomorrow we going to release a new alpha from the android app. I hope it solves all the problems that you mentioned.

    To complete my previous post, here is an alternative to Sbrick that seems to be better, in terms of number of controlable motors, and especialy in terms of Android application (weirdy, they are developing the way I suggested...).

    http://www.pockberger.com/bluesmartcontrol/?page_id=82

    Will VengIT stop doing social facebook (at least for a while) and greatly improve their android app, or will they let this other project take their customers?

    ...

    Developers: please communicate!!!

    Do you mean this link???   "Version v0.26 is available at  http://sbrick.com/apk/SBrick_0026.apk"

    It's where I got v0.26 from and, just to check, I've just downloaded another copy.  Works for me.

    For those struggling with using a Samsung Galaxy S3 I have found (thanks to a lot of help from Jorge Pereira) that using v0.26 of the Android app gives some comtrol of your Sbricks.

    It's not perfect but at least you'll be able to do something.  Version v0.26 is available at  http://sbrick.com/apk/SBrick_0026.apk

    Hello,

    I suddenly have problems with the SBrick app. Now SBrick is no longer recognized.
    The problem is when
    Samsung Galaxy S4 mini Android 4.4.2 Bluetooth 4.0 and
    HTC One S Android 4.4.4 (CyanogenMod) Bluetooth 4.0

    The problem occurred after SBrick has been updated.

    What can I do?

    best regards
    Tanja
