MaFt did say at the beginning of the thread it worked on Android 10. The only phones mentioned where it doesn't work so far is the Google Pixel and Samsung S10 handsets. Would be interesting to know what other handsets are out there and running 10.


It works on the Pixel 2 running Android 10


My other half is just checking on her son's Pixel running Android 10. The app loads correctly.

What issues have you seen with the Pixel?

OP had a Pixel 3XL

Quote:
The app still works, but have noticed the following two things

No menu button at bottom of screen to access settings, you now have to click on the camera icon in top right hand corner
App now reports it is not registered, so have had to reregister to get the updates

Other than that the app still works, running in the background overlaying Android Auto and Google Maps.


A bit different to the issues we are experiencing on the S10, in that it doesn't run at all.

If you look at the recent CamAlert reviews on Google Play though, you can see it is a bigger issue.

Those 'issues' are not issues though... No menu button at the bottom is down to the phone and os - many phones have abandoned software buttons for back/home/menu etc which is why we added the 'tap the satellite logo to get the menu' many years ago.

Having to re-register after a firmware update or a new device is pretty standard... Depends how, exactly, the update was installed etc and if the device ID changed in anyway.

The OP themselves said it works so it is just Samsung's version of Android 10 that appears to cause the issue.

It is seems to be different "flavours" of Samsung that are causing the issue. The Play store feedback does seem to be all Samsung feedback. If it is not going to be updated, perhaps some sort of notice on the Play store explaining the issues and stating that the database can still be used without CamAlert? There are quite a few reviews on there about it and it isn't giving a very good picture of the app.

I still think it's Samsungs new 'UI 2' that was introduced/upgraded from UI 1.1 with Android 10 on S10 devices.

We never did get a reply to whether the Samsung S8 Android 10 also included UI 2


@M8TJT - if the Samsung 8 has Android 10 available then does your S9 have it ?

Strange that a Sammy S8 should have Android 10 then !
