- SETI for phones and for cancer drugs

<h3>Will it access private information on my phone?</h3>
DreamLab does not access private information on your phone.
On Android devices only, the app requests access to photos, media, files permission in order to store the tiny research problems whilst they are being processed and calculated by your phone. DreamLab will only access the files it has created in the files directories. DreamLab does not need access to any of your private information or photos to be able to calculate these tiny research problems.On iOS devices, DreamLab does not access any of your private information.
Sounds like a great idea though

SETI@home is only one project that ran through BOINC, wasn’t it? There is a BOINC app but I don’t know how it compares to the desktop version, or what the support for projects is like. The vodafone app almost has the same number of downloads as BOINC already. I’d guess that it will soon surpass it. It would be good if the vodafone app was able to capitalise on the no doubt large uptake it will see through brand recognition by adding a choice of projects you can use your spare cycles for.Posted 1 year ago
i ran it at work today and noticed it paused as it detected my old Moto g3 was running hot. That was a nice feature.
I think the USP is the overnight phone use. The boffins on the radio reckoned that phones have moved on a lot in capability to make it worthwhile.
Combine that with the observation that phones are usually on and charging overnight and doing little in that period, and it seems it does have a good reason to exist.Posted 1 year ago
But some seem to think dangerous?
If you have dodgy chargers then dodgy chargers can go pop an any time.
Smart charging circuits can deal with most stuff and as pointed out it accesses the temp sensor in the phone and switches off the app if it’s overheating.
As for the phone blew my head off while I slept – check snopesPosted 1 year ago
