Android App problems

Hi,

I try this app. Some functions are working, some don't. Some did work some days, but not today.

1. Sometimes I select "message". Now the app is looking for them but doesn't find any. I must finish the app by task manager.

2. First I could find hosts by the map. Today I can't finf any, it tells me "Your internet connection doesn't work", burt my mobile is working with internet.

3. I selected 4 favorites. 3 ae staying, 1 I couldn' see today. I could find by "searching" in the app. But I found her by WS main page.

Please try and repair it soon.

Regards Sebastian

As detailed on the forums and in the August newsletter [ https://www.warmshowers.org/node/209887 ] the mobile apps are no longer being developed, the new mobile friendly website will launch later this month.

same problem

I have the same problem as you. This is the message i was about to send before i saw your post :

I have a problem of connexion to the mobile application with my android phone. The error message says something like : "error of connexion to the serveur: please check your internet connexion". I tried with a couple of different internet connexions and it's the same message again. It could be because of my phone or configuration, but i have no clue of what. I also already desinstalled and installed again the app but no changes. Could you help me ?

The new website has launched, use that through your browser rather than the abandoned mobile app.

Android (4.4.2) app no longer works

With a small screen device, being forced to use the web site is really a problem.  It also forces one to make multple steps (open web browser, log in, etc.)  to access useful information.   I get the same issue as Vassal - connection error.  Please make the app work again.  This is a big step backward.

There is still hope :)

Currently, I am rewriting the Android app. And I wrote a patch that makes the current one working with the new website (for now).
However, it takes some time to get the project back up running and pushing an update to the Google Play Store.

In the meantime you can download the APK directly from here: http://bit.ly/2wSVyfn
You need to uninstall the current and reinstall the downloaded app as I currently do not have access to the credentials needed to sign off this APK. After that, you will no longer receive any updates for the app. However, I'll post a message in this forum as soon as the new app is in the Google Play Store again.

Cheers

1.5.1 does not work on Wiko Tommy 2

Hi,

 

Thanks, the new version fix the problem on my crosscall phone. But strangely it does crash on map display on my Wiko Tommy 2 whereas it work fine with 1.5.0.

Just for you to know.

 

Thanks

Crash fixed?

There was a problem with this APK on devices running Android 6.0+. I uploaded a new version to the same link. Does it work for you on both devices, now?

Re: crash fixed

I installed on a fly on a 6.0 device. however there is still an huge bug (or thing to refine, but it makes the application lose a lot of utility):

On profile no clickable url works other than the phone number  (or in my case a link to a webservice that send me the sms). So the links that i have in the profile that in web version are clickable in your one are not; neithwr are clickable in the feedback sections the names of the referrer so one can see the referrer's profile.

Just downloaded the file in

Just downloaded the file in the link.

It is "file.bin" which my phone could not open. A file manager could rename the file "file.apk" and android opened it and installed the app. 

The map and hosts description seems fine. 

This app is great, keep it rolling!

New version available

I published a new version on the same link (http://bit.ly/2wSVyfn).

It fixes errors in displaying feedbacks of hosts.
