3. My Android device can’t find the app in the Play Store.
If your device can’t find the application in the store, it is because your phone is not compatible with our app! Google checks the app for the features we use and decides whether or not your particular device is compatible. Unfortunately we have no control over this, as Google is making the decision. (See #2 above for required features).

The TAPS app requires the following device features: GPS capability, eCompass/Magnetometer, Accelerometer, Audio Recording, Microphone. In addition to this, the device must be running Android OS version 4.0. Because of the vast differences in the capabilities and models of Android phones, some are incompatible with the TAPS app.

6. I can’t see all the sensors on my smaller device. I only see the EMF sensor. Why?
On smaller devices, only one sensor can fit on the screen at a time. You need to swipe on the screen from right to left like you are turning pages in a book. That will show you the other sensors.
