With any update to Android, there’s going to be teething issues. With the release of the Android L Previews, Google gave developers a chance to check to see if there apps would be compatible, as well as look good with Material Design. But it seems the Foxtel developers didn’t take advantage of the preview, with users on Android 5.0 reporting their app is crashing with the error ‘Unfortunately Presto has stopped’.
Presto itself is still fairly limited in its availability, as evidenced by the list of compatible Android versions and devices on the Foxtel device support page, which as you can see doesn’t support Android 5.0 – yet :
The crash reports have been listed both on the Presto Community support forum, as well as from Presto customers also reporting the issue to us directly. Ausdroid alumni Darren actually contacted Foxtel regarding the issues he was having on his device and was advised that the Presto Android team is aware of the problem, and is working on a fix which is due ‘in the coming weeks’.
Foxtel is obviously aware of the issue now, so we hope it won’t be too many weeks coming for the customers affected by the issue.
