If you are beta testing the ANDROID mobile app, please put your comments here. At this point, we are mostly interested in functional problem or UI bugs. We are not planning to add any additional features before release.

This my help with installation: on your device, go to Settings, Applications, and check "Unknown Sources".

Known issue: some older phones cannot install the APK application file. We cannot help you with this problem (you may figure something out is you google "[your phone model] install APK"). This will not be an issue once the app is released via a proper App Store.

Thanks for your testing help!

Initial response is that it is looking sweet. The only major bug has been in the behavior of back key press. The return locations seem illogical and once I got a blank grey screen which recovered after another back key press.

This may be a future feature but it would be nice to have the page hierarchy be links to access higher level content.

Downloaded bunches of areas and no other problems.

Thanks

Awesome so far, easy install. I haven't had any issues with the back button. Is there a way to save the route data to the SD card instead of my phones internal memory? ccerling

If you go to your device Settings -> Applications -> Mountain Project, on that page there is a button that says "Move to SD Card".

Does that do what you want?

EDIT: That doesn't work. We will research this and make it possible on the next release. We think we know what to do, but if anyone is an expert about this particular issue, please PM me.

BUG

Scenario: Launched the app and went to Personal Page. Entered the first few characters of my email address, autocompleted the email and it placed a space, " ", after the email. After entering password and tapping Login an error appears, "An error occured while loggin in. Please Try again." (verbatim)

Removing the trailing space allowed me to login correctly. Technically not really a bug, but something you should probably trim off as many people will have their email address auto completed.

I don't know if it's just that my fingers are fat, but the hitbox for "Tap to see more" and "Tap to see less" seems too small. Almost every time I have to tap at it 3-4x before it responds. optikal

This is not probably as clear as it should be, but you can tap anywhere in the white text view to make it expand or contract.

Oh! haha, alright. That works much better :)

So far it seems to be pretty solid for the first day of beta! Downloaded every area in Utah and been browsing through every nook and cranny I can find. Pretty stoked about it!

I'm not experiencing any problems when pressing the back key once or multiple times as mentioned above.

On the SDCARD storage issue, it would be most helpful if you can let the user choose the storage location path. With the motorolla razr the "sd-card" is secondary internal storage and the micro-sd is mounted at SDCARD-ext.

Remain awesome mp android developers..

Is there anyway to break areas down a bit more. Specifically "Golden" its roughly a 15gig file. Is there a way you could just download clear creek, table mountain etc. Thanks for the opportunity to test it. Pretty freakin sweet! TuRETZ

I noticed if you just click the text above it it works, kinda quirky though

Great quality rock on this one!
Think I tested the full functionality today. Downloaded areas and photos, added ticks and stars, browsed the forums and perused routes and beta all over. None of the above concerns affected the Pantech Burst for AT&T. Free first year for beta testers? :-) Mark Mueller

I couldn't download it on my Atrix with Firefox, it seemed to just link me into the compiled source file. The regular droid OS download worked seamlessly. Aron Quiter

Choosing a star rating for any route causes an error message that says "Unfortunately, Mountain Project has stopped." When I press OK, it goes back to the previous screen but seems to save the star rating.

Looking up at The Monk
The install is not working on my Kindle Fire. The device is set to allow installation of applications from unknown sources, the file downloads without issue, prior to installation I am prompted to allow the app to modify/delete internal storage contents, have full internet access, & read Kindle state and identity. However, when I click install I am given an "Application Not Installed" dialogue box. Thoughts? This happened with both the AndroidBuild07.apk & AndroidBuild08.apk Chris Rinaldo

Just got build 8. As i mentioned earlier the RAZR mounts internal storage at sdcard. Therefore mountian project data is still being stored on internal media albeit a decent sized chunk of flash. It would be nice if the user could define thier own location. I am not sure if this is as much of an issue on other devices.

Cheers

Photos embedded in the description text don't seem to show up

For example none of the photos on this page are seen in the app mountainproject.com/v/northern...

Here is what is seen in the app. (notice the caption w/out a photo)

Missing Photos (App bug)
Missing Photos (App bug)

Also just a though but why is "Select an area" at the bottom of the pages, it seems to me that it would be the most commonly used option and should therefor be closer to the top.

Edit: Also scrolling through photos in 'gallery' view is very sensitive it seems to usually go 2-3 photos at a time unless you are very careful.

Looks and works great so far!

No problems yet on my Nexus One. One problem I encountered on the Xoom (4.04) is that "Sych My Stuff" produces "An error occured while synching. Please Try again." (May not be verbatim). It worked fine on my Nexus, even when I tried it right after it failed on the Xoom.

When viewing pictures of a route. (i.e. East face challenger -flatirons) when I try to to change orientation on any picture except the first, it changes to display either one picture earlier in the series or the first picture in the collection. Also instances of false closes when trying to confirm this behavior with spotty internet connection. Brian B Ballard

tested on droid x running gingerbread, looks great. only thing is that the drop down at the top of the area detail is a little small. when you do get it to expand, hitting the right area you want to go up to is a little tricky. tested downloading areas, syncing, adding stars etc, all seems good.

also tested on an asus eepad transformer prime running 4.0. seems like i can log in, but i get an error when i try to "sync my stuff" i get a message saying "an error has occured while syncing, please try again". tried logging out and loggin in again, and no better. other stuff (download areas, maps, areas, photos etc...) seem to work well though.

Issue with the display of user name in the forums. The box to the left of each post that contains the name and avatar of the user is allowing the user's name to spill over into the body of the post. Sometimes this is causing the name and the post to overwrite each other but in some cases the post doesn't begin until below the user id box. Mike Pharris

Looks good so far; however, I have noticed a few issues:

1) If for a downloaded area I click the "Download All Photos" button, then while it is downloading photos, I click the home button, then re-launch the app, returning to the same area, it says all of the photos have been downloaded, but they have not been. I cannot click the "Download All Photos" button again. Even deleting the area and re-downloading it, does not allow me to.
2) When downloading areas from “Get More”, frequently (but not always) the second area fails to start downloading. Giving a failed message under the area name and saying tap to retry. Tapping never works.

App is great so far. One thing I noticed was that I get a "Unfortunately Mountain Project has stopped" message when I try to pull up "South Arete" under Washington->North Cascades.
