Android app improvements
« on: October 28, 2016, 10:04:09 AM »
Hello,

it would be great to have the following things added to the Android app:

- Option to mass select/deselect all tests
- "Clear all tests" button if a new measurement should be done
- Populate the "ping test" with a few popular default servers (Google for example) along with the option to set your own

Thank you

Agreed, and this sort of matches with my suggestion to group tests better by color, or the other end of the cable.

Another important feature:

- Battery indicator inside the App (because the LEDs are a bit to inprecise)

Alf, you should submit the battery level feature in its own thread level up, I agree, that's important.

Also, that's not just for Android nor are the other features you request.  Should be the same in both iOS and Android.

Yes, of course. It just happens so that I use the Android app with Pockethernet all the time. Will try it out with an iOS device at one point, but until then I cannot really say if the iOS app is different from the Android app in regard of features.  :)

The battery indicator we already worked on, and should be released soon. I'll discuss the UI suggestions this week to see if we can find a clean solution for that.

Thanks for the info. Would it be possible to integrate some kind of speed test to get an idea of what a cable is able to transmit? Or could it be somehow derived from the BER results?

I would also like to add, I think

1. Some tests cannot be run in conjunction with each other, I think we should warn the user that the tests cannot be run together.
       Such as those requiring loopback vs wiremap vs switch

2. Before running the test, warm user that the far end should have XXXX connected for the test to be run. You can have a do not show this again.

Thanks
Alex
