We’ve blocked the app from appearing on the Android market for the Galaxy S2. This is a great & beautiful phone, we have one on the team, it’s possibly the best phone there is but unfortunately one of the key Android APIs is not working. We cannot listen to changes in cellular signal strength, which is pretty key for an app like ours! We could adjust the app so that when it loads onto an S2 it goes into ‘wifi-only mode’ we set this mode up for tablets which only have a wifi-radio (no cellular one). In the meantime we decided to take it off.
We’ve been aware of the problem for a while, but left the app on it in the hope that it would change with an update – in fact when the Galaxy S2 was first released I think we had no choice to leave it on as there was no way to manually prevent apps from appearing on the market for particular phones.
You can help!
The problem with the Galaxy S2 is a known bug, you can help us put pressure on Samsung/Android to fix this:
