Hello !

I just noticed how basic and closed the official BOINC app is . And my question is, Will the Android app be ever like the desktop one ? Or at least like the 3rd paty NativeBOINC which I currently use

I mean :

-Being able to see/abort/retry transfers (In my case , I need to "Retry" several times since my mobile broadband is pretty slow)

-Include the "--allow_remote_gui_rpc" option in order to manage the client from our desktop computer

-Having the option to "Run always"

Well.. I'm not sure if the app is still under development or reached its "highest point" , But I remember the Beta version were even better

Greetings !

Due to lack of developers, the Android version is not currently under development.

A new developer is on the wishlist.
