I just got a text teling me support for the old app is about to end and I should switch to the new one.
Nice work there, designing the new app to not allow rooted devices to use it. Has Virgin recently acquired a banking/financial arm I'm not aware, that requires this additional (fake, since it can be bypassed) security?
And the claims on the app, such as "an Android widget that allows you to check your balance without opening the app itself", yeah that was in the old app too.
Can you not disable the old app, since some of us like being in control of our devices and don't want to give up r0@t (seriously, your forum tried to stopped me because I used a bad word "r0@0t" in the text???!!! Are you f$#*ing serious?) and honestly cbf setting up r0@t cloak just so I can view my usage a little easier? Or do you really not consider these sort of things when kicking off a new project like an app redesign?
100% agree with you. Security on a rooted Android phone is equal to that of a Windows PC.
I had my GS7 rooted for a short period of time and I believe the new app worked just fine and it also works on flashed Samsung stock firmware (without the Optus startup logo).
Thanks for for the feedback! Due to security, our app will not work for devices with modified software installed.
Modfied software can open our customers up to a security risk and we're doing all we can to avoid this from happening. Protecting our customers info is our highest priority.
I believe the new app also gives the new Data Gifting functionaility; whereby you can send data to other postpaid friends/families.
There was also an alternative app that you can use but it's slipped from my mind...
EDIT: so it's called myUsage, but it seems to have been pulled. You can probably source it elsewhere...
