Therm-App™ should be compatible with any phone that runs Android 4.1 “Jelly Bean” or above and supports USB “host” mode (USB-OTG).
**Notification regading Android Version 7.0 Nougat
Android has released a new version (7.0 Nougat) for some of the phones which the Therm-App would normally be compatible with. There are currently many bugs with this version. One of them blocks USB OTG from being recognized on the phone. Meaning the Therm-App (which works with USB OTG) might not work with some of the phones which have been updated to this version.
Both Therm-App and Android is working on fixing the bugs. However at this stage if your Therm-App does not work with this version, we recommend to use the older version until the bugs a resolved (version 4.1-6.0.1). UPDATE MARCH 9 - Galaxy S7 with 7.0 is compatible with the Therm-App.
**Galaxy S5: Samsung created some bugs in the android versions (5.1+) on the last updates. The problem is with how the android grants permission to access the USB. In some cases it does not recognize the Therm-App on the Samsung S5 with this particular android version. This should be fixed by next update around April 2016. In the meantime Android version 5.0.0 and 5.0.1 work well.
Below is a list of models that were tested and found compatible with Therm-App.
Please note: The below are models which we tested. Unfortunately it is not possible for us to test every phone model on the market. However, if the phone supports USB- OTG and the Android version is higher than 4.1 the Therm-App should be compatible.
If your phone is not compatible. We suggest purchasing a cheap unlocked cell phone like the Samsung Galaxy S3 and make it a dedicated phone for the Therm-App. Remember that no internet connection is required after the initial download, which can be done by using Wi-Fi. So there is no monthly plan required.
You are ready to purchase and enjoy the Therm-App:
