'Only secure origins' error on Android

iRecord Dragonflies App v1.1 (Android):

One of my recorders always gets this error trying to get Location on his Android phone: "Only secure origins are allowed" and a link to a Chromium project doc "Prefer Secure Origins For Powerful New Features" that indicates it would work if the comms were over https. Is there a setting or update on the phone that would fix this? He claims his GPS works normally otherwise.

(We've tried to access the main site at https://irecord.org.uk/dragonflies but it doesn't work and probably wouldn't help with this particular problem anyway.)

Hi David,

Hi David,

Thanks for reporting this. We are aware of the problem, but due to the ending recording season, we have decided to postpone the fix until next year. Actually, we are planning for version 2, that will be on the app stores, so if you have any suggestions and ideas, then let me know.

Thanks,
Karolis

App v2 and fixes

Thanks, Karolis. This raises more questions than it answers. Do you mean v2 will be available as Android and iOS native apps?

*** Please don't make big changes to the look and feel, just data corrections, bug-fixes and being able to make the geolocation less precise. I don't want to have to re-train all those who are already working with it.

What about those it using the App on PCs or Macs? Will they have to use iRecord?

Hi David,

Hi David,

Yes, it would only be available to Android and iOS as a native app. I think it is the best to keep the desktop and mobile recording separate for the time being, so you are right, it would be the iRecord or BDS website to use for recording on Desktop.

The next version proposal is still in a draft so lots can change, but the interface should be a very close match the existing one, so I think the existing users shouldn't have any problems using the new version :)

Thanks
