HAI SnapLink for Android

$49.99 price I can live with, but no try before you buy?

To return the app you have a ridiculous time of 15 MINUTES from the time of download.

Refund policy
You have 15 minutes from the time of download to return an application purchased through Android Market for a full refund. You may only return a given application once; if you subsequently purchase the same app again, you may not return it a second time.



/sigh

I look forward to seeing the reviews from the CocoonTech community.

As far as I know, this is still 15 minutes (something Google changed recently).

Well it seems the software is still very buggy. Quite a few complaints about it crashing and being unusable for the most part. HAI's Facebook page and app store reviews are not very positive at the moment.

Best to sit and wait for the update that addresses these issues.

Any one lurking on the forums taken the plunge yet?

HAI has already cut a release 1.1 to fix these issues, it's already live on the Android Market. So far so good for me, no crashes. A few people are reporting occasional force close issues on the new version but restarting the app now works for them.

Anyone tried the "SuperLink" app on the market? I'm thinking about purchasing that. It is $10 less, seems to work (At least the free 'lite' version does) and the developer seems to be more into it. I know HAI tries but I have not been impressed to say the least in their commitment to Android. Should not have taken 6months after IPhone app to get this dang thing and now we are seeing the pain. They have had version after version on the IPhone but can't even get the initial release right on android.

If you have tried the HAI, anyone know if you can do 'notifications' or as the Superlink dev calls it (Listenables). THis is REALLY cool. I setup the one light the freebie version gave me so I get a notification everytime it toggles. Pretty cool for garage door sensors etc..

Just concerned about the superlink dev disappearing or something after I fork over $40..

Hey Guys,

Yes, we had a little snafu with the release build, it was fixed as soon as I could. I've just released 1.2, which fixes a couple more minor issues. Rest assured we are going to continue to improve it, and the iPhone app.

If you have downloaded it and run into a bug, make sure to post it on our support forum, or e-mail me the details so I can get it fixed... posting "it crashed" doesn't help me a lot in tracking it down ;-)

Thanks,

Aaron

I've not yet bought an HAI system, still in the research phase and will be for some time. But I'm very interested in this SW as I think android tablets are what I want to put in several locations.

What can you tell me about the functionality and interface? Is it fairly sparse or slick, feature poor or rich, buggy or stable?

All comments are appreciated, you too Aaron.

Thanks.

SuperLink is far better but it looks like the Dec has forgotten it, or moved on to other things. The latest version still works but it is lacking in some areas, like access control. It doesn't like a change in connection type (3g, 4g or wifi) either and typically you have to "quit" it and restart on a connection change. But it does work.
