I’m having a “Devil” of a time (pun intended) getting BlinkUp to work on my two Android devices. Fortunately, my wife’s iOS iPhone works, but this is inconvenient for me in the field when I want to commision new devices. I’m using IMP001 of April boards, all were purchased recently from Digikey.
My Phone: Samsung Galaxy Core LTE SM-G386W running Android 4.4.2.
My Tablet: Samsung Galaxy Tab3 SM-T310 running Android 4.4.2
Legacy mode is not showing up in the Google Play downloaded App? It’s not a setting available anywhere in these Android devices? I’ve tried the darkened room trick, and the blinking up within the first 15 seconds of power up trick. I’ve also already update my IMP001s OS by doing the BlinkUp with my wife’s iPhone, which works perfect the first time in every case. Can I side-load a version of BlinkUp that has the slower blinking rate? If so is there a link to that “more compatible” version of BlinkUp?
Is it just my bad luck, or is BlinkUp support of Android devices lacking somewhat? I read in some older forum postings that a few years ago this was a hot issue and many users were put-off by the support folks at Electric IMP somewhat brushing off what might be a very serious and recurring issue.
There was a Windows version of BlinkUp posted in an old forum posting but it’s now gone. Can this be re-posted please. The entire world does not run exclusively on iOS, and it would be nice to properly support a product on the other popular platforms. Not interested to be flamed in a Windows, versus Apple, Linux/Android debate… I just want equality of BlinkUp support across all platforms… or a good explanation of what this is so difficult?
