Companion not working

On Makeroid Companion App v3.0.1, the companion won’t connect to the Makeroid Builder.
Companion tested on a Samsung Galaxy A5 and a Nexus 7 both with Android 6. Builder tested with Firefox 57 / Edge 41.

I know a brand new companion is being created but it may take a long time before it’s released so it would be nice to have a fix until the new companion comes out.

Steps to reproduce the issue:

  • Open any project in the Makeroid Builder
  • Connect the companion with the QR code (connecting with code doesn’t work because the companion accepts only digits and the code contains letters)

Excepted Behaviour:

The window with QR code close after the connection and the companion shows the app content. (Normal behaviour)

Actual Behaviour:

The window with the QR code doesn’t close on the builder. The companion displays a toast with the code but stays stuck on the companion home screen.

Happy to see this… After the next release (may be by next week with some bug fixed), you can install the companion from the playstore.

What?! Since a few minutes, the companion APK from @Diego doesn’t work like the old one. I tried again the Play Store version and tested the companion APK on other devices and it still doesn’t work!
Has anyone encountered this problem ? It seems to be a server-side issue.


What Android version?
