I have some strange things. With whatsapp, my contact last is for example 9:15. I come back on whatsapp ten minutes later and the last seen is now 9:18. If I restart the app, last seen show now 9:15. Or I see a contact on line and then last seen 8:20 but it's actually 8:17. But sometimes clockwork get the right time by itself.

UPDATE: the issue is still present in (Aaslakkajärvi).

Not an answer - please convert that to a comment below the question

If this is indeed an issue for all of aliendalvik and not just WhatsApp then it may break Android clients that rely on timing (e.g. 2 factor authentication, banking apps and similar).

I experienced the same but otherwise, android clock seems to run slower than system. First time I figured it out today. The days before I restarted the Alien Dalvik at least once a day. This could be kind fo a workaround till it got fixed. But I need to have eye on this, maybe you can check it also. I use 'Sailfish Utilities' from Jolla Store. There is an option to restart alien dalvik. Maybe there won't be significant issues when restarting alien dalvik at least twice a day?

Its a workaround but it dosn't help all times, I need to restart alien dalvik more than 4 times a day (using only Whatsapp, Clas of Clasns)

Yeah I experienced the same but for my opinion it's good to have this as a "workaround" for not having to restart device 4 or 5 times a day... but it's quiet anoying...

I'm still using Mitäkuulu from the Warehouse. Only Facebook and the messenger I'm running that is Android apps.

I have the same problem with! The Android Clock runs to slow. I installed a android clock app. This app seems to stop after a while... i need to restart the app to get the right time again. That seems to be the Problem with Whatsapp, too! To get Whatsapp back to work, I just switch the network connections. (every our...)

Does anyone know if it is fixed in 1.1.7?

I'll test it and let you know.

EDIT: I let an Android clock app run for like 6 hours - no delay, not even a second. My phone is running on the latest 1.1.7 preview upgrade. If you want me to test something else, I can do that.

Great!!! Thank you! :) really cool! So I'm looking forward for Version 1.1.7!

And, did the upgrade solve the time differencies for you? :)

molan ( 2015-08-31 19:39:28 +0300 )edit

more or less... with the lates Upgrade (1.9.) it works most of the time. But I realise that it stops sometimes, if the app is in the background.
