Has a lot of potential

Have the app and like it but as others have stated the toggles need to move to another page and the main screen enlarged so it uses the entire screen for alerts. Being able to switch to a horizontal view would be great. I’m guessing that a lot of users would appreciate an easier to view alert screen especially us mature users ;)

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback. We have incorporated your feedback into V2.0 which will have the settings on a separate screen, and the main screen will use the screen space for the alerts.

Won’t connect

I have one of the latest V1 Gen 1 detectors, along with the Bluetooth dongle that works for both Android and IOS, but this app fails to connect.

Hi onePostal - This issue has been resolved in the latest version. Please update and you will be good to go. Thanks for your feedback.

Great app

Looks pretty simple, developer has been upgrading it regularly, I wish the settings toggles would go away and maybe tap or double top bring back them back, that way it would make it look cleaner
