Few words from EUC World creator


Recommended Posts

I went to leave a review and notice that I already left one. Oddly enough, it shows on my account but it isnt visible with the reviews that you see listed. I dont know what google is doing, but I think you are only seeing a few of them. I shouldnt be 'banned', as we all know how wonderful I always am.  Seems like most of the negativity/complaints are from simple user error. Don't fret Seba, I'd imagine the vast majority of your userbase is not disappointed. Bad news for you, with 700 days of premium left, you'll be fu**ing with my user errors for the next 2 years. You better switch to whiskey!

I would like to see, in the future, a possibility to buy this application like a normal app in PlayStore, AppleStore (!), Huawei Store
with normal in-app purchases. (I fully understand why it's not possible for now...)

5-star android review submitted

Although I only use free features I have a mulit-year upgrade to support @Seba--it's that good of an app and I'm thankful for his sharing it and putting up with us. :D

Review left! Thank you again so much @Seba, I really appreciate EUC World and what you do for the community.

I just need to figure out why Android keeps killing the app even when you have a foreground service running. :)

Great work Seba. I have the opposite experience than what the bad reviews say. Just keep going!

(I would love to give a 5*, Google is not letting me, though. Beware everyone if you are using an account with a custom domain and not gmail.com.)

Just left you 5 stars, there will always be whiners and complainers, sometimes negative critique is justified but in your case I think it's totally not.

How fortunate. I just so happened to have my phone beside me while scanning the forum. 5 stars left. Thanks for a great app.

I left a 5 star review not because you requested it but because that is how good the app is. 6 stars really considering that 99% of the app is FREE and the absurd amount of features!

Literally the only suggestion i have to improve the app is somehow having the 80% gotway beeps as an option one can enable in the alarms tab instead of alarms only being dependent on speed or voltage. I don't know what this requires or if it will ever be possible but when that it added i will be ecstatic about the app, use it religiously and get lifetime premium. For me 80% beep alarms are the final piece of the puzzle but somehow i'm sure you can surprise me with even more features i would have never been able to think of.

When i was first exposed to this app i didn't take too kindly to it but honestly i just needed to spend more time with it to realize its amazing degree of utility. Nowadays it's essential to me and i love it.

Thank you @Seba for you monumental effort of making and maintaining this amazing project. You deserve more praise than you are getting and also know that negative nancys are more outspoken than people who just download the app, love it, and have such a good time with it that they forget to leave a positive review.

This is also the reason I have left a 5 star review.  It's important that Seba's work is appreciated and recognised here.

Sorry you have to deal with so many people with unrealistic expectations.  :wacko:

The fact that a passion project like this exists for something that let's be real should exist from the manufacturers by default in a good state not the crappy state it often is, really is icing on the cake and people should consider themselves fortunate enough to have stuff like EUC world and wheel log, If it works they should be like oh wow awesome this actually works and if it doesn't work they should be like "well at least he's trying hopefully a future version will work for me, Glad this exists).  People are too entitled It's not like your Microsoft here putting out something that is your main job(or that you're being compensated for in a way that comes close to paying fairly for your time on it)


As an aside I don't know if this would cause more issues than resolve(More features to implement / two apps to maintain) but perhaps having a separate EUC world lite app, or a lite mode, that didn't require an account or location permissions for more privacy-minded individuals and only saved a local user profile with alarms / wheel specs but had none of the route tracking and other bells and whistles would be what some people are looking for.

For me, wheel log works just fine for that and in the future when I have a newer wheel and want something even more cool with more bells and whistles I'll probably try out EUC world.  But I could see some users who want something simple with just speed/current monitoring and more custom alarms being turned off by some other aspects or feeling things are too overcomplicated and they shouldn't have to have an account to do these main features.

 

That said I haven't used the app personally so have no idea if something like this already exists in the app and it's not your job to necessarily implement something like this(lite app/lite mode), this is your project and implementing such might take away from what you enjoy and wish to do with it in terms of direction, if they want something different they are welcome to learn how to code and make it themselves or go use the manufacturer's apps or wheellog

  • I've just given 5 stars on Google Play
  • @Seba as I wrote you be email, may I suggest you just forget people who complain about everything. We really appreciate this app. There are so many features in EUC World so at the time being there is no app that can compete with it. So, if people do not like this, they are free to use another app.
  • Let's try to understand why these people can be unhappy with EUC World. We cannot try to help them if they are just insane. Let's find something on which perhaps we can help them.
  • If people don't know to use EUC World, perhaps we need to have an easy to use documentation. Perhaps there is a room for improvement here. Perhaps it may be a good idea to create a collaborative EUC World user manual. Videos are cool but are not really useful to update them regularly and perhaps it is easier to collaborate on a simple document or wiki or mardown document than a video. This way we can probably produce any version of the user manual (corresponding to each version of  EUC World but is there a good reason not using the last version of EUC World ?)
  • Perhaps some people cannot connect their app to their wheel. @Seba have made a video related to this "issue". A user manual can also be a good response. FAQ are also a very good idea (it may be part of the use manual).
  • Perhaps some people don't know that EUC World is not developed by a manufacturer. Nobody is forced to pay for EUC World. It can be consider as just the developer's toy that he wants to share with those who may be interested in it. If they don't want to play with a toy they just have to go away. But, if we would like to be a little bit serious, if other people suggest others to use this app it means that EUC World is not just a crappy you, it is really a good app as every good opensource apps. For those who are not familiar with opensource world, may I give few examples. Few years ago, Linux has been considered as a toy, a not serious operating system. Nowadays, almost all apps you can use on internet run linux as operating system. Many apps that are used for every web site we have on internet are based on software that are, at least in their early days, open source. There is no company behind them. We are happy to be able to use freely these apps but we should also have in mind that other people are working hard to make these apps useful. We can also try to contribute in the way we can to keep this situation going on.
  • Perhaps some of these people don't like the fact they need to pay to have some feature. We can suggest them not to use these features or make a fork of an open source version of EUC World ancestor and add the feature by themselves. Another idea is to ask the manufacturers to implement features they need to add into   manufacturers apps.

 

If we contribute to EUC World (in any way), it may be sane to feel that EUC World belongs to us. Here I may be a little bit frustrated since, correct me if I'm wrong @Seba, EUC World is no longer opensource. Anyway, @Seba is still doing a very very good job, he takes into account our suggestions, etc... there is no real alternatives to EUC World. So please, keep working with the same enthusiasm on EUC World @Seba. You have our full support. We really appreciate EUC World and you. :-)

Considering how borked the official KS app is on android, I'd have probably returned my S18 without even unlocking it if not for EUCWorld.
