    Quake-Catcher Network: QCN/BOINC app for Android Devices Now Available

    QCN now runs on Android devices (phones, tablets, etc) via BOINC for Android, which is available on the Google Play store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...berkeley.boinc It is recommended to run using the default settings - ie QCN will run on your Android device when it's charging ("at rest" so it won't trigger every few seconds) and on a wifi network. The network and CPU requirements are very small, typically 1-5% CPU, and a few kilobytes per day. Just download BOINC for Android from the Google Play store link above, and attach to "qcn.stanford.edu/sensor" Note that this app is not graphical - we are looking to make a QCNLive-style Android add-on for displaying the QCN/BOINC app/accelerometer information.

    Sweeeeet.

    This is a great opportunity for you android users to get more projects for the wuprop badge stars, or MMs or just plain free credits.

    FWIW, I don't use the stock BOINC client. I use NativeBOINC. Way more features. For example, I can set up so that BOINCtasks can connect to it like any other BOINC device.

    Maybe the stock BOINC client is the problem?

    Same thing on NativeBoinc. Hmmm,that's strange, every other project I've tried works fine.

    Working fine on my GS4, using standard BOINC manager, not NativeBoinc.
