Hi!

Title says it all. :)

Can show charging cycles, push notification for warnings (battery too hot, for example) ... interesting!



Kind regards,
Oliver

There could be unintended consequences with prior purchases. I have not tried this out.

Doesn’t work, here in CZ. I get a message that the CZ language is not supported.

Ironically I’m not even Czech and just want English. But language and country are bound.  Ludicrous. Why?

Ate the developers at FT so ignorant they think that if you don’t live in a native English speaking country, they just assume you don’t speak English?

why? simply the joys of the regulatory state. Same way DVDs are region coded. Some bureaucrat went along with some great idea to control some thing they were told had to be regulated because the little people can't take care of themselves.  Or the same mental midget Bureaucrat was convinced by some special interest group that this would be a great idea and that to prove it they will contribute to their election campaign, and offer them compensation when they leave office.

That sounds like a bug in the app.  Country and language are two different users selectable settings on your phone, somehow the app isn't validating them independently, it's assumed the language based on country as you said.  Report it to them, I'm sure it's easily fixed.

Yeah. Should be two different things. It does show a list of countries, but once you select one, the languages are limited.

Already reported it and sent email today again. Reported it few month backs. Nothing.

Even when logging in with native language. I get a message: language not supported. Then it logs you out. So no Bluetooth app functionally. Really crazy (considering the premium brand they are supposed to be).


// dev myself. Indeed easily fixed. If they WANT.

It is their first foray into apps, so they may be working out a few kinks.

Yeah got that (been there, done that). But this is not complicated, basically a translation issue (which in programming sense is hardly programming). But if your unwilling to listen to feedback ...  ;)

I hope someone of FT reads this and takes action (FT: if you need any help, PM me)....
