About the Beta
For a short period, Mozy is conducting a public beta of the Mozy app for Android. Our objective for the beta is to have several MozyHome users try out the app and provide us with early feedback on it. The beta is one way that we ensure that the app performs well when it is publicly released.
With this first version the Mozy app for Android, our goal is simple. We want to provide MozyHome customers an app for accessing their files backed up to Mozy. There are some very cool features, such as emailing a file, opening in other applications, and viewing photos and sharing them to other apps (such as Flickr or Facebook). But we kept the feature set lean because we hope to update frequently based on user feedback. This version is the beginning of something that we plan to update regularly.

We ask all participants to comply with the following.

Solved! Go to Solution.
Really, great, happy to have this, and doing side-by-side comparisons on i-Pad, i-Phone, etc.
One thing I've encountered, is that after a period of time, when launching the Android App, it crashes immediately, and requires rebooting the entire Android (HTC 4G Sprint) phone again before having a successful launch.
Thanks again, looking forward to seeing the evolution.
PS- as a MozyPro shop, people are already clammoring for the functionality- as they are currently forced to use Dropbox to get items to their mobile devices.
We want to look into the crash issue you report. Have you noticed any particular action(s) that bring about the bad state? It will help our testers home in on how to reproduce the problem.
so far so good. Download works like a charm.
Only thing i've noticed is that the login screen doesn't rotate when I turn the phone (which is annoying as I have a keyboard on the htc evo shift)
PS the 'shift' & 'FN' keys on this forum only work if I'm holding them down, no biggie, just annoying
The Android app downloaded and installed fine on my Samsung Galaxy Tab, and I was able to authenticate successfully. Any attempt to access files (within the /user/myname folder) failed with the message:
"A network error occurred. Please check your connection settings and try again."
Dropbox works fine -- I am using WiFi. I switched to 3G, and the same error occurs.
Basically, the Android app seems useless at this moment, but maybe servers are down, so I will try later.
Thanks for the report on the Network Error issue. We're working on it, but it's one of those intermittent issues that can be hard to nail down. We're closing in on our release, so you may still see it occasionally in the first release.
If the error always shows for you, I'll need you to take a couple steps so that we can troubleshoot.
First, if you're still using the beta app, please remove it from your device. Once removed, get the official release version from the Android Market.
Next, if the error still happens on that version, we'll need to get Support involved by starting a post in the official Support board. (My apologies if that seems an extra step, but being for the beta, this board is somehwat outside of the normal Support channel.)
Scratch that, looks like you already did.
