Oh, I see it now - thank you. It should be noted, however, that it is black text on a dark blue background, and therefore very difficult to read. I wonder if the text could be made white?

Anyway, thanks again.

Unlike the desktop BOINC manager, the Android BOINC manager does not have the option for the user to say "No new tasks". This means that the only way to cease contributing to a project is to turn off the client (or remove a project) while a task is partially done (which means wasted work, and an unfinished work unit from the perspective of the project).

It would be nice if this setting were available on the Android BOINC manager. Is the Android BOINC manager still under active development? Can a feature request be submitted? If so, where would one submit this request?

Thanks.

Hello. The BOINC program available for download (7.6.33) does not come with any checksum information. I respectfully suggest that this information be provided.

Last year I downloaded the BOINC client through World Community Grid (which they brand as "World Community Grid software), and the checksum did not check out properly. I contacted them and they fixed the issue. I realize that this is a different version than what is available here, and that they are a different entity than boinc.berkeley.edu. But still - it illustrates the fact that checksum info is important.

Would it be possible for checksum info to be provided for your BOINC program? Thank you.
