Like it All works gratefully, except that on my Nexus 5 with Android 5, when I hit "Start tracking" nothing happens, after hitting "Stop tracking" nothing appears in tracks section and seems nothing to be saved, please fix that.

Works well on S5 I was able to make this app more responsive on the airtight S5 by simply opening the charge cover on the bottom a tiny bit.

works well on Samsung S4, but not so well on S5 The Samsung Galaxy S4 works well with this app. Squeezing the case of the phone has no effect. The Samsung Galaxy S5 is more tightly sealed to help make it more waterproof. Sadly, it does not leak air in and out easily, so the vario function does not work well. Light finger pressure on the phone squeezes the air inside the case, indicating strong sink. Lifting the finger indicates strong lift. Really not usable with this phone, though it is a good app.

No nonsense app. It works as stated in description. The sensitivity seems to the changing wrong way round? ! Sliding the yellow bar way to the right makes it less sensitive on my S4 Samsung but this is minor or I might understand it wrong way round. Tha lag time between altitude change and audio beeps is a major concern and seems to be a generic one with other similar aps. Why can't it be instantaneous like a real vario?
