QCN App for BOINC on Android Available

QCN now runs on Android ARM-processor devices (phones, tablets, etc) via BOINC for Android, which is available on the Google Play store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=edu.berkeley.boinc

It is recommended to run using the default settings – ie QCN will run on your Android device when it’s charging (“at rest” so it won’t trigger every few seconds) and on a wifi network. The network and CPU requirements are very small, typically 1-5% CPU, and a few kilobytes per day.

Just download BOINC for Android from the Google Play store link above, and attach to “quakecatcher.net/sensor”

Note that this app is not graphical – we are looking to make a QCNLive-style Android add-on for displaying the QCN/BOINC app/accelerometer information.
