We released a lean Android BOINC client, tailored to be be used with BoincTasks.
Now you can add your Android device to your BoincTasks List of computers.

Tested as low as API 16

Interesting. I'll run down my current v7.16.3 APK's cache, and take it for a spin. See how it gets on with my current rpc clients: BOINC Manager for Windows and BoincView (an oldie, but a goodie!).

Edit - that was convenient - it had lost WiFi overnight and finished all its work anyway! Reported all now, starting on updates...

Edit 2 - for the record, it's

It should be compatible with any manager, if you disable "Use a secure password"

Interim report - haven't got this working on the Samsung tablet yet. Fred's app has detected the IP address correctly, but doesn't recognise it as WiFi, and I can't get a normal manager to connect.. We're in contact on the BoincTasks forum.

Several fruitless tests, and much hard work on Fred's part later, my tablet has a working client and it's crunching science for Einstein - and I can manager it from a perfectly normal Windows BOINC Manager. Still some rough edges to knock off, but it's getting there. Look out for Beta 7 or above on Fred's site.

This is awesome! Using it now and it works great with BOINCtasks! Thanks!

The only problem is getting the password to work. I turned password off and all is good.

Nice, great to finally have all my devices in BoincTasks.

Are there plans for being able to set a custom max battery temperature (as with the regular client)?
