I see you managed to find the clip of me hard at work preparing the car for Sunday ;)

I hope you like the app.

I'll use ramjet,

 

Will this work on my Samsung phone?

Hi ramjet. It should work on any decent Android device, but there are so many different models, it hard to guarantee anything.

Working just fine on my M8, great app. Love the globe too, very neat :)

Thanks Bibs! I've just followed you.

I'm glad you like the app. We're very proud of it, and have some big plans for improving it in the coming weeks. Do let me know if you have any suggestions.

I click to tick 'image stabilisation' when I set it up and just going back to the settings under profile it's a red cross again. Is this not persistent? Being a handheld I'd like that feature on most of the time I'm sure?

That's a very good point. To be honest, I added that feature a few months ago as a quick test, and we never managed to reach a decision about what to do with it. On some devices, it makes the image very laggy, so it's hard to track moving targets. That's why it's not enabled by default. Some of the team questioned whether it should stay on until you choose to switch it off, and I agree it should.

Now that you've prodded me I'll try to fix it this week, which means it could hit the App Store in about 2 weeks.

Looking forward to seeing this as I am stuck at home with a broken leg so can't go this year.

Sorry to hear about the leg, whirlybird. I hope we can at least give you a decent taste of the event.

I'm LauraLotus, I don't have a huge data allowance on my phone, I assume this app will eat it up when streaming video?

I can't find a setting to turn the sound off, even though my phone is turned to silent it's blipping an playing music is the globe screen.

Great app though, really like the idea

Hi Laura,

We're trying to keep the data usage to a minimum, but if you're concerned about it, there is an option to upload only on wifi. Of course that might mean you won't be broadcasting live. The clip will upload the next time you open the app while you're on wifi.

it's a shame the mute switch doesn't work. I assume this is on iPhone? Apple have made it difficult if not impossible to do all of the things we need with recording etc while respecting the mute switch.

Thanks for the great feedback!

BTW, typical usage is 3-5 MB per minute, so not bad if you keep it fairly brief.

I'm on 2 GB per month, and I'm using the app CONSTANTLY while testing it. Hope that give you some idea.

We've just lowered our highest quality level a bit, so it should now use even less data. I hope that helps, Laura :)

Just a thought... If you add something like 'Lotus', or 'TLF' in the title for any videos, it'll make it easier to search for them.

Thanks for the info, much appreciated. Yes, I've got an old iPhone. The noises aren't too annoying, just the first thing I always do with new apps!

I did see the wifi only setting, again it would be good if the settings were remembered each time the app is used.

Hope you don't think I'm being critical, it's a great app just nice to be able to give feedback directly to someone involved in the development.

All thoughts and suggestions are welcome, Laura.

I do think we should add an option to disable all of the sound effects.

My bloody phone won't search for MyEye. It breaks the word up into My eye and I get all sorts of crap. Grrr.

 

Well I just went to the forum on my phone and used the link that way. It reports that the app is not compatible with my phone. Oh well. Photos will have to do me.

Yeah. I have a Samsung Gt-i900. I think that is the model.

Sorry, I misread your post. Unfortunately, making the app work with literally thousands of different Android devices is incredibly difficult. Hopefully, we'll be able to increase the number of supported phones in the future.

I must admit I know very little about Android stuff. A couple of the other guys in the office deal with that stuff.

Did anybody notice David Beckham was live on MyEye a couple of hours ago? I think this thing could get big quite quickly!

For real? With that sort of exposure, Google/Facebook will writing you a $5bn cheque before you know it!
