Set up Hotspots in Minutes
- Set up your Hotspot in minutes with Helium. Once you’ve created an account, simply pair your Hotspot with the Helium app, connect to Wi-Fi, and specify your Hotspot location.
Manage one or many Hotspots
- With the Helium app it doesn’t matter if you need to manage one or many Hotspots, it can support dozens or even hundreds of Hotspots.
Updates Hotspot Earnings chart to show UTC days (7D, 14D, 30D).
* 24h earnings chart removed because the API reports reward earnings for the last completed UTC day and thus will show 0 until the day is over. This can cause unnecessary concern as these 24h earnings chart will effectively flatline.
Updates 24h Earnings on Home screen to say last completed UTC day. Hotspot rewards below on that Home screen also reflects last completed UTC day.
Updates Validators earnings to align on UTC days.
Fixes QR scan on second attempt
Fixes Transfer Hotspot check
Ratings and Reviews
UX UI bugs
Helium is fantastic, life changing to me. However the bugs in app are proving to be a bottleneck for deploying new hotspots. Reasserting locations has become expensive because of a lack on confirmation when it is successful. Several times I have attempted to reassert location to find I am double charged the DC fee because there is no way to confirm which attempts have been successful.
There are many unclear error codes that make set up painful. Connecting a hotspot to a new WiFi networks takes many tries, and is often unsuccessful.
Ease of use should be a primary focus for app developers, along with making sure data is up to date for the in app charts and displayed correctly.
Last complaint is actually directed at Binance, where the helium wallet has been down for several days.
However take this all with a grain of salt, thank you Helium Team for this amazing opportunity to be a part of something so liberating!
Discovery mode and Asserting location doesn’t work
I have NEVER used Discovery mode. It seems like it would be useful but ever since I downloaded the app it has ALWAYS said “You have run out of sessions for today. Try again tomorrow” despite having NEVER used it. Even more frustrating is when i first asserted my miner location I put the pin over my house, clicked to confirm and when it went through it ended up changing my location two streets over from where my house is and it WILL NOT let me change it. Every time I try to reassert my location it says “There was an error constructing the assert location transaction.” On top of that it wants me to pay for the app screwing up and not asserting my location where I told it to in the first place. I really like helium mining and support helium but this app has been a nightmare. Uninstalling and reinstalling doesn’t do anything and there is no one to contact for support. Hopefully the Helium team will take notice to all these awful reviews of their app and do something about it.
Poorly made app.
Honestly im very disappointed with the app. First of all, the built in map and hotspot viewer is terrible. Everything takes longer to load, you cant see hotspot details and activity. I just tend to use the website explorer due to how much better it is. Thats not even my main problem. For whatever reason, my app displays no notifications, discovery mode doesnt work whatsoever, pair is very iffy, and more. I dont know if this is unique to me or if others have had these issues as well but I swear it’s annoying. The worst part is there is NO ONE who can help me. i looked through the entire helium website and there is no support, no tickets, no email, NOTHING! When you click the help button in the apple app store page for the helium it literally redirects to a broken page. super dissatisfied with heliums team right now.
