Please offer the .apk file on BOINC client download page.
This will stop the reliance on the Google play store.

What you mentioned (edit the APK to add GRCPool to the list) is only for older version of BOINC on Android. The GRCPool is a valid option in BOINc for android now. But After I enter the username and password. It will show "fail"

Please forward this issue to the development team to fix.

I tried to add another account manager (GRCPool) to my BOINC on Android and it is also not working. So I suspect this add manager function on android is not working at all.

If I un-select "Pause computation when screen is on" in preferences and run for a few hours. My phone will shutdown without warning.
I suspect it is because the app use up all the resources on the phone.
Can someone on this forum try it on their phone to see if it is an issue that happens on other users/phone.

BOINC version. 7.16.3

Android version 9

I use App Mgr III to move the other apps to SD card. I do not need to root an android device to use this app and move to SD card functionality.

The app is free with ads.

I notice that very often there are tasks that passed deadline and is still running.
And task that estimated remaining time is far beyond deadline is still running.
Should BOINc add a check to stop those task and run a new task?

I can add other account managers but not Science United. Can BOINC implement this in the future.

I managed to find the menu bar of the BOINC and added an account manager.
So 2 and 3 are no longer an issue.
