    Since the Lollipop 5 OS update a few weeks ago the app has been the largest battery drain on my phone. It would be nice to have this issue rectified!

    Overall experience is good however it does have occasional glitches with kW recording. A few times it has said we are generating 28kW on a 5.5kW system. Although the kWhr total looks right for the day. And temperature seems wrong as it says the inverter runs at 75 degrees centigrade!

    For some reason it crashes "Bluetooth sharing" after every time it accesses Bluetooth on my phone.

    Latest update removes niggling 413 message which limits uploads sometimes. Would like ability to extract records from invertors back to time zero rather than just 14 days, maybe just one off to gain completeness of records. Works very well on Xperia Z3 Compact.

    I found the WINDOWS app Sunny Explorer from SMA slow and tedious. Dave's app on Android is so much faster to start and run, just the trick :-) !! Playstore says a hundred downloads ?? ... should be tens of thousands, surely....!!
