Well I did not post the correct URL before to sign up as a BETA tester on the Play Store.

Here we go again.

Sorry about being asleep at the switch,

Bill,
I am signed up for the Beta, but I am still seeing 7.4.53. Previously it was showing 7.14.1. Is this a recent change?

I suspect that it is. How long have you been signed up ? And what version of Android are you running ?

As I understand it some of the newer Versions have had some issues with the 7.16.x roll out but I have no specifics.

Overnight about a week ago I was auto-updated to 7.16.5. But I have an older phone running Ver 7

Thanks
Bill

Hi Bill

7.16.3 was working fine for me on SETI, but when I attached to Einstein, it massively over fetched work (partly my fault), and the Tasks panel or tab went almost completely blank

Hi Keith

Most of the people on that forum have more depth and experience than I do. I have been at it quite awhile but almost all of it as a user / tester not a developer.

For my Computing Preferences for general use including my Android phone I have been using 0.5 Plus 1.0 additional. This has worked good for me on everything from Fast new AMD64's with an NVIDIA card to old 32 bit Window's boxes that were released with a Win Vista OS on them.

Best of Luck and Stay Safe
Bill

Oh well, the beta in the play store is still showing me the old version. But the direct API from the Boinc site works fine
