Oops. Perhaps this comment belongs here in Documentation instead of on the Android board.

It says:

Now that there is a new Android app, is it time to update the Help page? The last revision was in June 2020 and includes a bunch of workarounds for the previous version.

Oh yeah, now you dunnit. Barn Owl will flog you. Maybe. ;)

In answer to your question, the new Android app is so bugged that it's maybe better to wait for the version with fixes being developed right now. And let's hope they put that one out for proper beta testing instead of releasing it fingers crossed it's flawless.

Having read the Help page (https://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Android_FAQ), it would seem that the workarounds are still very much needed. These cannot be fixed by a newer BOINC version as these are restrictions by the Android operating system.
