Problems with the "Click/tap to start OpenWebRX" prompt on Android mobile devices? [fixed in v1.261]
edited January 2019 in Problems Now Fixed
Is anyone having problems not being able to get past the "Click/tap to start OpenWebRX" prompt that should appear on mobile devices and some pc browsers? I've had a report of this being broken for about 5 days on Android. But I don't yet know any specifics about Android OS version, mobile device type, mobile browser type, etc. The only thing I know is that the reporter said Kiwis worked fine using pc Firefox & Chrome. So that rules out local networking problems.
PCs, both Linux and Windows fine.
Has this broken recently or has it never worked on this phone? Has it worked on an older Android version on this phone?
Sorry for all the questions, but without them it's extremely difficult for me to guess what might be going on. Thanks.
I'm not certain that it ever worked on this particular phone. I think it has previously but not sure which phone I was using.
Must find another browser to try and load it onto phone. Late here so must QRT until tomorrow.
Refresh of the URL got me back to "Click to start" with no interaction again. Waited 2 minutes and "click to start" disappeared and back to control panel w/o custom image. Can collapse/enlarge control panel. Can move decoded/rx frequency. no WF and no audio.
RX operates and looks normal on PC/browser and is serving several rx's of remote WSPR.
Is the phone fairly recent or a good few years old?
The only Android device I have here runs 4.4, which by now is ancient (and the Kiwi stuff runs fine on it). So I guess I need to buy the cheapest tablet I can find running 8.x to do some debugging.
The page does run just fine on an older Kindle Fire, Sept 2018 18.104.22.168 with a "Silk" browser. Waiting for an update to 22.214.171.124. If it stops running when that's installed I'll let you know.
Kindle updated to 126.96.36.199 with Silk continues to work fine.
Amusingly, I noticed in general Android 4 on the Huawei was much more responsive than Android 8 on the Lenovo. The two devices use very similar processors (quad core 1.2 vs 1.3 GHz ARM A7).
