Arrow That's correct
dr-PHP
Yes, that's correct. We need to put some our secrets to the credentials storage.

Note: actually our application do not asks for your passwords or any of your credentials. It is Android's default dialog. We do not store any of your credential! BTW, we can't get it because of permissions.

Not compatible with the Galaxy Nexus or Asus Transformer? Is this only for old devices?

Post Beta codes
Last time when I checked the codes list - lot of them were marked as "used". Someone removed all these marks. So let's say "thanks" to this anonymous user.
Please send requests for the beta codes to androidbug@hotspotshield.com.
