BOINC

BOINC


Use your phone or tablet to study diseases, predict global warming, or discover pulsars! BOINC harnesses the unused computing power of your Android device and runs jobs for scientific research projects. You can choose from projects in several areas of science, including Yoyo@Home, World Community Grid, PrimeGrid, Enigma@Home, OProject@Home, theSkyNet POGS, Asteroids@Home, and Einstein@Home.

BOINC computes only when your device is plugged in and charged, so it won't run down your battery. It transfers data over WiFi, so it won't use up your cell phone plan's data limit.

If it sported the old SETI graphics... Back in the 90's sometime I did a lot of processing for SETI@HOME prior to the switch to BOINC software. Now that it is on mobile and has been a few years since I last used BOINC I cannot believe that I am unable to see the old blue pink and purple graphics used to display the data as it was processed in the SETI project. Can this be a feature request? It would be nice as a screen lock or a daydream for those of us who support the SETI project on our mobiles and insist on running it on battery.

Great app I'm glad that we can now utilize smartphones and tablets to contribute to distributed computing projects. Seems to work great on my note 3.

Great for helping find ET But please show us the name & location of the SETI telescope whose data we are analyzing. Much more compelling that way. * Emails to your Play Store address boinc back
