This is a fantastic little app, and is extensively praised for its simplicity and quality, and even by Google for its usage of the Google Play Services and Android location frameworks.
However, it is stated openly (even on the Google Play Store page) that our beloved Note II (N7100/N7105) cannot handle the app as the accelerometer cannot work when the screen is off.

SAMSUNG NOTE II INCOMPATIBILITY
Unfortunately, Samsung Note II cannot run its accelerometer sensor in the background.
We have tried different solutions, but we have not found a satisfactory way to support the device.
We would really like to support Note II and try to find a way in the future.


Surely, with the wealth of talented developers and ROM makers, technical wizards, and group knowledge, there must be a way to crowdsource a fix or workaround for the applications. We've seen in the past that some users have fixed problems, squashed bugs, and improve features on devices that even the manufacturers and app developers haven't been able to do.


Maybe we can all take a look at things?
Anyone want to help with the cause?
