    If I use a shortened URL like: goo.gl/YNPgy0
    I get an error that says the URL cannot be encoded.

    Hi Jeffrey,
    The problem is that the shortened URL contains capital letters and our regular expression for URL validation doesn't support capital letters. A workaround for you is to use a URL shortener that doesn't emit capital letters, e. g. http://is.gd (see option available here: http://imgur.com/kbJysB7).
    We will be resolving this in the next app update.

    Is this still the case: "The beacons included in the Eddystone Developer Kit are configurable at this time only using the RadBeacon app for Android."??? If so, this is truly false advertisement, because the product page doesn't mention it at all. I recently purchased two starter kits and don't have an Android device. After having difficulty with the Mac and iPhone apps, I came across this page. Please advise.

    Hi Burak,

    I'm so sorry about that. I have amended the article to show that this is not the case. I'd be very happy to learn more about your specific issues, however. If you can send me an email at support@radiusnetworks.com describing your experience so far I'd love to troubleshoot for you.

    Thanks

    I have done all the settings, did the Eddy UID and switched off iBeacon.  I gave it a name, set the beacon to ping 1ce a second and saved.  Then when I go to the scan menu again it doesn't save the settings, even though it says it was successful.  

    On the Google nearby app and scan for unregistered beacons, it doesn't pic up any beacons.  I tried this on 4 out of the 10 beacons I ordered already.

    I ordered the RadBeacon Dot.
