Re: Why is Optimum Holding Back Android App

said by frdrizzt:

I take it back, it started working with no additional work by me.

how about sending the APK my way ?
there should be no reason why this app should not be compatible with my device.

It installed on my Bionic but it says I am not home so I will test it tonight. At last!

Yes, the incompatible message is now gone and I am able to install the App to my GS3 normally.

Search Google Play for "CSC Holdings" and it shows up on the search results.

Direct link to Optimum App on Google Play:
»play.google.com/store/apps/detai···y.mobile

Too bad it'll probably never be compatible with the HP TouchPad... now to find the APK.

Edit: If it doesn't show up in Google Play on your device, for whatever reason your device is "incompatible".

no.
the direct link says the same message as i previously posted with the screen shot.
the app would more than likely operate without any issues if i had the APK.
either way, if i get the APK that would be great, if not, ill just wait until they get my device added to the list... eventually, before i turn to a skeleton..

When I search on "CSC Holdings" two App results are returned, but above these results its states "57 results". When I click on the "57 results" link I see the previous two App results (DVR Manager and WiFi Register), plus the new Optimum App.

That is strange. I am guessing there is some search parameter that not right on Google Play, probably related to the fact the App just went live,

if my device was rooted, this wouldnt be a problem but i dont plan on rooting it until LTE is enabled by t-mobile by a software update sometime in 2013. (rooting it will prevent this update)
off topic:
it annoys me that my device says "4G" when it reality, its not if you consider "4G" to be "LTE" as most people seem to do.

the same info is on the CV website.
although i realize my galaxy note 2 is not "officially" supported as of yet, the difference between the galaxy S 3 and galaxy note 2 is so minimal that its said that both devices are "alike" with the exception the note 2 has an "s-pen" and larger screen.
ill stick with the kindle app using the "clear app data" method to keep it working for the time being until CV eventually gets around to adding the galaxy note 2 to their list, hopefully i wont be a skeleton by then...

I'm guessing this is one reason why developers choose to go with Apple first, uniform across all devices with iOS vs different versions of Android along with different hardware specs. Another reason I heard is that people pay for apps more so through iOS/iTunes than with Google Play/Android Marketplace.

Except that it will run on other platforms but CV just won't let us use their POS app. I waited a year for nothing.

So how can I download this thing?

i pay a premium price for CV services and i feel i deserve to have accessibility to this app without having to play this game of "tag".

Cablevision is all about class warfare. Have Fios? You're in a special class that gets special discounts not available to others. Have an iPad? You're in a special class that gets special apps over a year before anyone else.

use the kindle app.
it will work as long as you keep the app open and dont sign out.
if you sign out or close the app, just go to "app manager" on your phone and clear data and then open the app.

Got my hands on the new Android APK and tried it on my HP TouchPad:



Wernt, wernt. The Kindle Fire APK works. Kind of want to edit my build.prop and see if the newer APK works better than the Kindle Fire one.

For something that you call a POS, you sure seem to want it pretty badly!

I don't know if I'll even use it. The latest iPod version is a big step backwards.

Actually, I've been shut out of so many things by Cablevision, I feel I should get something for the $125 I send them every month for iO+OOL.

It worked! The only difference I can find between it and the Kindle Fire (KF) version is captions display properly now, under the KF Ver. they were extremely tiny. It also doesn't request root like the KF Ver. I made my device look like a Galaxy S3 on Verizon.

build.prop settings:
ro.product.model=SCH-I535
ro.product.name=d2vzw
ro.product.device=d2vzw

Not sure if it requires all three, my device didn't have a ro.product.name setting so I just added it.

Edit: Been playing with it more, maybe it seems smoother.

This screen is still broken like it was under the KF Version:


Android app still has "Watch on Kindle"
