Fails to take into account call sign variations in the UK. Fails to take into account call sign variations in the UK where we must alter our call sign prefix by UK Country e.g. G ~ England, GM ~ Scotland, GW ~ Wales. When requested they do not provide an alternate activation code to allow such call sign modification, which is required by UK regulations. Otherwise it would be excellent.

License required to listen? I have heard great things about this app, so I went ahead and bought it. I'm in the process of getting my license, I already have an HT and would like to decode the APRS data (no transmitting). This app requires a license for everything. I'll get my license this month though, and will review again then.

Awesome tool for hams Used this tool recently on a round trip from Iowa to Arizona and back. Worked flawlessly. The bonus was that I never had to look at the phone to see if I had cell service because I could hear the ping sound to know I had service 73 de KDøMCV

Excellent! Excellent product

by A Google User the 8/20/2013

Pretty darn cool! I love the little communication device in my hand. It can do almost anything. But... It takes great software writers to make it work. APRSdroid is one of those "make it work" apps! Thanks, keep improving. 73,Karl K8ARL

Quick response! App works exactly as advertised. Received my pass code in less than 24 hours. Kudos to the developer. 73!

Android APRS Purchased yesterday, had my passcode within 15 minutes and was up on running on my Samsung Galaxy s-3. So far works perfect. I have used APRS with a handheld 2 meter radio and my reception was not as effective. Probably due to using low end equipment with minimal output. The only adjustment I would like to make is it sends out a message too frequently for my needs, otherwise great.
