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.

Recent changes:
New to 7.4.39:
* Prevents the PlayStore from advertising BOINC on Android 5.0.

7.4.40+ should be Android 5.0 compatible.

A little slow on older phone (duh,) but every little bit helps! The smaller Fighting AIDS at Home work units, which only take an hour or so on my PC, require 10+ hours on my old Droid RAZR (CPU is a dual core TI OMAP 4460 at 1.2 GHz; I'm only using one of the cores for BOINC.) That being said, It's a simple, easy-to-use, well-behaved app. As so many others here have said, what a great way to contribute to improving people's lives!

Great App The real cures are out there. Nice to be able to add my phone to my hord of work unit crunchers. Every device processing work, helps researchers find the real cures for Cancer, etc.

Overheating on Galaxy S4 On my Galaxy S4 it got hot enough it damaged the display. I'm installing on a new Note 4 and will revisit my review in a few weeks.
