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.

* Updated to libcurl 7.39.0 and openssl 1.0.1j.

Stop complaining about lollipop incompatibility! The devs know it's not compatible with lollipop, this is because of a change in the way apps run on Lollipop. It might take a while to fix because the projects have to update their tasks for the new Android as well.
