Android Viewer Problems
I finally bought an Android device after my iPhone had a little tiff with a wall and failed. It's a cheap one to see whether or not I could get used to the OS as I've never used it before. So far so good. However I can't get the GameSalad Viewer to load my project. I used the version on Google Play 1.25.5 and I also installed the latest version 1.25.73 as an APK file. Both versions find GameSalad Creator on Wifi but in GameSalad Creator it freezes at compressing assets (the blue line is at 100%).
I can't get the USB way to work either, I know with my Kindle a long time ago that option showed in GameSalad Creator.
I've followed a number of forum posts as well as the cookbook. Developer mode is on my phone, I've turned on USB debugging (cookbook says that) and I've turned off firewall on my MacBook.
I can install my project as a signed APK but the first thing I noticed when viewing it is that buttons are missing from view (maybe missing completely or off screen) so the app is completely unusable. The app fits fine to the same resolution when I preview it in GameSalad Creator with custom resolution. To keep installing a new APK every time I want to check something is going to be a slow process, especially when I don't know why buttons are missing at the moment so having a workable viewer is would be a massive time saver.
The phone I got has an 8GB hard drive and 95% of that is used by the operating system and with apps installed I'm almost at 100%. Do you think that it might be due to not having enough space to proceed? It doesn't even attempt to download the project in the viewer so not sure that is the reason.
I've ordered a memory card for it to see if that helps but maybe someone else has experienced a similar problem and can offer some tips/advice on what to try
