Checked compatibility for Genie mini for Android on Syrp website (ONLY states "Version 4.3 & above. BT 4.0). My Nexus 7 2013 runs Android 6 with BT 4.0 so purchased the Genie. Turns out Android 6 & up has major/very common BT connection issue which makes the Genie 100% useless. Contacted Syrp - their reply "We had come across another customer with the same issue with Nexus 7...This is a device specific issue. Unfortunately we cant advise you further on this". Syrp hiding known issues. Unacceptable!
After around seven cycles of firmware updates (all of them supposedly successful), it has an inordinate amount of trouble connecting to the device, and the design of the software is simply catastrophic. There's no clear way to simply move the genie to one end of the slider range and zero it out, something that ought to be a basic feature.
When I first installed the app on my tablet and phone, there was a bug that the team quickly addressed. Once it started working, the app works wonderfully. It's pretty simple to set up your genie mini and go. There were a couple times when I thought that the genie was running and I missed an amazing sunset. The rest is pretty intuitive though.
I've had genie mini for 6 months now, and recently I've had a lot of trouble starting the time lapse. I can connect to the device, but when I press start, nothing happens.. It's so frustrating to use 15 minutes on location every time, just to end up giving up and using a normal intervalometer instead...
Bugs seem to be fixed. Intuitive and easy
I've had a multitude of issues, device bricked and would only work after I connected it to a device without bluetooth 4.0, unstable when pushing updates to device. Device shows to as tilting when panning. I've attempted to use this with the follow devices: iPhone 6, note 4, note 5, galaxy s6, iPhone 6 plus, galaxy s4
Love you guys
Let's be clear. It struggles with Motorola G. Updated via different device. It must be made clear that during set up a camera must be on and connected. Extra emphasis on this please.
Love the geni mini..but recent updates made it strange.every time i connect it goes to update software page and says,i need to update.i had to update every time like i have already done 20-30times...now i have uninstalled the app and reinstalled it..hope it works
Incredible device, even better app!
Love the features and interface.
Didn't work initially on my Note 3 but got fantastic support from the team at Syrp and it's working beautifully now. Am a very happy customer.
Doesn't work. That's a problem... esp. after months of waiting.
