Quick Note about iOS7

Dear Reader,

The first meters are in user’s hands, which means the first bug reports are coming in.

The most important issue report by far is that the version of the iOS app in the app store will not download to iOS7.  iOS7 will be supported and we’ll get a new version in the Apple app store ASAP.  Approval by Apple usually takes a week and we’ll try to get the build submitted tonight.

Reminder: your device must have hardware support for BLE, also known as Bluetooth Smart.  In Apple devices this started with the iPhone 4S.

Thanks for reading!

    Does this mean that the iPod Touch 4 will not be supported?

      Unfortunately the iPod Touch 4 does not support Bluetooth Low Energy and will not work with the Mooshimeter.

    I recently received my Mooshimeter. Was able to wake it and measure voltages on the downloaded iPhone app. However, I didn’t find the top menu bar in the app that your pictures show. Also, couldn’t find anyway to get to a graph view of voltage/current vs. time. I presume this will come out in future upgrades.

      Hi Don,

      The graph mode is entered by turning the phone sideways.

      If you downloaded in the last few days the menu bar should be there… when did you download?

        Thanks, I got the graph view fine after turning sideways. Also, I’m guessing the menu bar that was shown in your pictures and I was looking for must be the system menu from one of the other platforms (android, etc.) and is not present on the iPhone.

        – Best regards, Don

    Downloaded the app to my iPad 2 but can’t get it to work. Did the wake up, checked the batteries, stood on one foot – nothing. Any ideas?

    Just went to the apple App Store to see if there is an update and now can’t find the app.

    I installed the app on my iPad mini and I can see the meter, see voltage, current… BUT when I turn the iPad sideways, there is no action, the app stays in meter mode and never enters graph mode. I have checked the settings and other apps can change so I don’t think it is some setting wrong in the iPad.

      Another user brought this up in the forum. It looks like the screen rotation feature broke in iPad on the most recent build. Will fix asap.

        Thanks, I will look out for the update

    On my phone (Samsung GT-18190 Android 4.1.2) I get an error during installation, the message is “problem during the analysis of the file” (loose translation since my phone is in french) is language an issue?

      Can you upgrade to android 4.3 or later? The app will not run on Android 4.1

      • Jean February 6, 2015 at 1:56 pm #

        I will look into that, but more likely I will use my iPad as a viewer.

    I played with the iOS7 app on an iPhone 5S and found a couple issues. 1. The top menu bar is sometimes just a black bar. going from the portrait view to landscape and then back fixes it. 2. Sometimes I cannot keep the portrait meter page up. After 2 or 3 seconds, I go back to the device scan page. After a while for some unknown reason, the problem eventually goes away.

      Thanks Clif. The portrait-landscape transition is undergoing some rework right now and is noted in the github issues page. But the black bar issue is new – can you send a screenshot?
