        Hey guys. a couple things. Our Android app now has all the same features as the iOS app and is super stable with the latest Android release that came out in the last few weeks, thanks to better Bluetooth performance in the OS. But Android support is limited. It turns out that even though Android’s Bluetooth 4.0 stack supports low energy peripherals, it can take up to 5 minutes to report beacon information, whereas Bluetooth 4.1 reports every 30 seconds. We can only support Android devices with Bluetooth 4.1 and that is why Android devices that have Bluetooth 4.0 cannot download the app. Initially we had hoped to support Bluetooth 4.0 devices, but performance is just not quick enough to be of use. Please make sure your device has Bluetooth 4.1 before ordering. Sorry Galaxy S5 users. We have a search tool on ankr.com that will let you know if…

      • Distance notification

        Add a meter notification. If, for example, ANKR is 10 meters away give me the exact notification and so on for 100 meters.

          We have added a ANKR details view with the ability to ring the ANKR and also a live range meter. The problem with giving specific distance readings is that their is no way to do that accurately. Since RF signal strength is affected by mass such as people and walls. Any estimation as to the distance would be wildly inaccurate in everyday usage. Hopefully the signal meter and ring ability are good enough. Let me know what you think.
