The BOINC Android app has a number of problems. If you're familiar with Android development and would like to help, please contact David or Rom or visit the BOINC Github repo.

Unfortunately I cannot help you with this matter, but this would be great if you could fix the app since it is not running satisfactorily on my phone and I guess this is a reoccurring problem on many phone when I see the feedback on the download page.

I hope you can fix the issues soon and therefore increase the support for your/our great project!

I have noticed that there are some problems:
1. Many devices have a big.LITTLE architecture (some cores working at high frequence rate and soem other working at lower frequence for example the LG G4 has 2x 1.82GHz + 4x 1.44GHz cores) but the app doens't use the principal cores (the ones with the highest frequence), it uses the cores that should activate only when the smartphone needs more power;
2. Sometimes you can't add the projects because you see a white page instead of the list of projects.
3. We need a new graphic. Android has reached the version 6.0, I'd like to see the Material Design in this app.
I hope we can see an update soon. Thanks.

I would say that a thread asking for people to held with the Android client, is not the appropriate place to make complaints about said client.
