Message 1253109 - Posted: 29 Jun 2012, 7:41:23 UTC

I need some testers for a new BoincTask mobile app.
Before adding this to a stable release, I like to have some more input.
In other words, testers on various devices, to see if any serious problems arise.

Before you try this on your desktop (what isn't the point of this test, but you will try anyway), the IE isn't working, for some reasons it's not compatible.
Chrome, Safari and Firefox work fine.

This is not a BOINC client but a viewer to show, what's going on your computer(s).

Except for BoincTasks itself, nothing is installed on the iPad or Android device.

You need version 1.35 http://www.efmer.eu/boinc/boinc_tasks/download_beta.html

WARNING: After you install the version above:
Extract:
http://www.efmer.eu/download/boinc/boinc_tasks/unified/login.zip
And copy the 2 files to C:\Program Files\eFMer\BoincTasks\webserver

A short manual can be found here: http://www.efmer.eu/boinc/boinc_tasks/mobile.html

I put this app on my Kindle Fire and it seems to be working ok atm.I have not messed with many of the options but looks good so far.Only issue I am having is connecting to B.T when I have a password set.When I put in the pw on the Kindle it kicks to a screen saying to use the password that's in the settings->WWW tab option on boinc task.There is no password in that tab option just a check box for WWW.

I am also not seeing an option to set the icon onto the home window,tried with the default browser and a beta Firefox version.I can save it as a bookmark though.

The actual location move to BoincTasks settings -> Mobile.
For logging in, you need to install the 2 files in the zip as well, see the link.

The Full screen is for the iPad.
What is the default browser? Chrome?
I will try to implement this in the next version.

Working OK on my iPad2.

Only problem is no "right click" on pending tasks to "retry" would have been useful today :-)

PS Looks good!!

V 1.37 has a completely redesigned web server for BoincTasks Mobile.
This should enable it to work on Linux and OS X.

Just tried BoinkTasks Mobile on my ASUS TF101 (tablet). Works fine. My only suggestion for now would be an option to use larger fonts as I had a hard time reading the page. Thanks again. John

Cancel That.....I was looking for fonts on the tablet, not as a setting in BoincTasks itself. Great. Now I can read it.

Just the same I will add this to the (tablet) options menu as well.
A more logical place.

Thanks for the very quick response. I believe I have a second (small) issue.
I added Project Rank as a column to display under Projects. This works great on my PC, but if I change sort options on my tablet Projects (1st column) from Z-A to A-Z then BoincSimap is only displayed as one line and no other lines are displayed. Reversing the sort order (Z-A) and all projects display. I think I have part of the reason....because for whatever reason in my case the Project Rank is listed as ?? (question marks)for BoimcSimap (same CPID). In reverse sort (Z-A) World Grid is first, which has a proper Project Rank as do all other projects except BoincSimap. When I remove Project Rank as a column then everything displays as expected. This is not a big issue with me, just thought you might like to know. BoincTasks is a great application, my thanks for a job well done. John

Look here:
http://www.efmer.eu/boinc/boinc_tasks/manual_settings.html#expert
If you get a ?? you have to add a second cpid for the ?? projects.

The projects fight over the CPID and over time some CPIP should be left standing.
So over time there should be only one CPID, but my impression is that this can take forever.

I will check the project rank sorting, there seems to be something wrong there.

Yes, I had checked that. In the middle of the message in parenthesis I had stated that BoincSimaps had the same CPID as I was using for other projects. I had gone back to Simaps web site and copied the CPID and placed it in the second slot, But I found it was the same as the first one so I erased it. Later. JB

You can check:

C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\eFMer\BoincTasks\stats

You find the xml file of all projects with that CPID.

Good news: I did as you requested and Simap was listed in that XML, however, as I looked at it something did not look right. Then I remembered that they had changed their URL a while back, so I edited the HTTP part in your XML to the new URL and with a restart the data now shows up in the Project Rank. The newer URL is: http://boincsimap.org/boincsimap - Thanks for putting me on the right track. Later. JB

A couple of bug fixes.
And a new report button, that updates all projects that have tasks ready to report.
In options, a way to changed the font size.
