This thread is to discuss everything about the myBrickset app for Android (bugs, feature requests, anything really).
For starters, myBrickset is an Android app that syncs with brickset.com for both set information and your owned / wanted sets. It does not require an internet connection (except for updating) and can be used entirely offline - great for browsing prices when out shopping. When connected to the internet, the app will seamlessly update itself with the latest sets from mybrickset.com as well as keeping your owned & wanted sets in sync with the site.
After first logging in to the app, please allow approx 30 seconds for it to download your data from brickset.com. Unfortunately version 1.0 of the app does not show an icon whilst syncing, this will be fixed for the next release.
The app has been tested on as many devices as I could get my grubby little mitts on, but unfortunately there are issues with some devices.
If you find that syncing with brickset.com is not working (ie, your owned sets are not shown), please try the following steps:
1. Go into Settings and activate 'force refresh' then press the 'Refresh' icon on the main screen (this causes the app to override Android's background sync options).
2. If it still doesn't work, go into Settings and activate 'manual refresh' then try again (this causes the app to ignore Android's sync service and do it the old fashioned way).
I currently have reports of the app crashing on Motorola Droid 2.2.3 and Samsung Galaxy Tab 2.2, I'm looking into these but don't have an eta on a fix yet.
Configurations tested against and working with no workarounds are:
Samsung Galaxy S 2.3.6
Sony Ericsson Xperia S 2.3.4
Acer Transformer Prime 4.0.3
(please add to this list in the comments)
Configurations where 'manual sync' is required are:
HTC Desire 2.2.2.
I have a simple web page at otissoft.co.uk/products/mybrickset/buglist.html
which I'll try to update with known issues & fixes.
