Link Android client to a user? [or Team -Not Yet]

Postby Astriaal » Sun Feb 01, 2015 6:01 pm

Mod note: merged several existing topics - j

Right now the Android client just contributes but I can't find a way to link it to my OSX F@H user. I'd like them to be linked so I can see a cumulative total and get credit for the work done on Android!

Since there is no technical fix this forum can provide, please address this feature request to Pande Group on their sub Reddit /r/foldingathome.

Folding for a team: possible or not?

I would like to fold for my team. Is it possible for me to do this, if not will it be implemented in an update soon?

Currently the answer is no. Dr. Pande answered a question on this at the official reddit - https://www.reddit.com/r/foldingathome/ ... _progress/. At some time in the future it might be possible, but nothing has been committed to at this point.

Can folding on mobile app be part of PC client team results?

Postby checktest » Wed May 18, 2016 3:52 pm

Is it possible to have the results from someone folding using the Sony mobile app to be part of a team using the PC client?

Not at this time. Dr. Pande has posted that they are working with Sony to see if this could be done at some time in the future.

When it is done, you will be disappointed. I suspect a phone/tablet is doing about 1/100 what a PC CPU can do. So expect PPD of about 10 for an android install.

Currently, the mobile client doesn't gather enough information for points to be computed. To add the two together, some additional data would need to be gathered.

At the present time, I think the mobile client only tracks the number of hours you're running it. I don't think it knows how many CPUs you have or how fast they are, etc. so it gives a poor measurement of scientific progress. Also, there's no information gathered about how rapidly you were able to do a more difficult project, compared to a simpler project nor has there been any scaling to compare how difficult a CPU or GPU project is to a NaCl project is.

The points for the PC client are based on the difficulty of the project as well as the elapsed time before you return a completed project, giving more points for completing difficult tasks more promptly and fewer points if a similar project is returned more slowly or if an easier task is completed.

Any plan to add the two together would require converting the reported data to the same unit-of-measure.

When will I be able to fold for a specific team instead of it choosing one for me?

As mentioned in prior responses, this is up to Sony. You can ask on the support pages that are set up for the Sony Android client or the official Folding reddit. As also mentioned by Dr. Pande in the post linked here, Sony and PG are in contact about the possibility or merging stats, but no promises or dates have been given.

Too bad this has not been resolved as this question has been asked since 2015. I do appreciate that they have communicated clearly about the issues here and on Reddit.
I do understand we are still helping the cause and that is the most important issue. I feel petty just bringing it up but it helps people to be motivated & join in. Since many people have old phones that could help out just laying around.

I hope they figure this out soon....
