Hi everyone, I'm the developer of Turkdroid, an MTurk client for Android!

This app allows you to work on HITs directly from your phone, and it includes some nice features:

• Browse, accept and preview HITs.
• Searcher to log new HITs, like HIT Forker.
• Watcher to auto-accept HITs like PandaCrazy. Supports Panda and Once modes.
• Searcher and watcher can run in background. You'll receive a notification when a new HIT is accepted.
• Turkopticon reviews support.
• Search for HITs and requesters.
• Filter and order results.
• Block HITs and requesters.
• View your dashboard.
• Request or take tests for missing qualifications directly from the app.
• Dark and light theme support.

Let me know what do you think and if you have any issues or feature requests.

Hey I downloaded the app a few days ago and have been using it a lot (~2 hours a day) and loving it.
Can't wait to see more updates. Would love a way of having a queue limit per individual hits but that's a minor thing. I have 2 more days in my trial but I'll buy it 100% and hope it remains ad-free. For what it offers it should be valued higher in my opinion. Keep it up!

[Feature Request] Automatically go to next HIT in queue
Hey, Wanted to submit this feature request not sure what format you wanted for submission but it's by far the biggest issue I find with the app so far which is a great thing!
Anyways, I'll usually have some things in my queue either from other sources or from Turkdroid via finder/watcher and let the queue fill up with quite a few HITs. On PC I'll click the "continue work" and never have to check back with PC as long as I have something in my queue as it automatically goes to the next HIT in my queue when I'm done with one. Currently with Turkdroid I'll finish a task and then have to open up my app drawer/recent apps, select Turkdroid, look at the queue tab and then select work on the next HIT. It'd be nice if it could somehow automatically bring the next HIT in my queue to focus/foreground.
Hope you think it's a feasible and worthwhile feature to add.
Thanks!

Hi! What program/extension are you using on PC?
I'm not sure if I can implement this because when you click "work" on the app it open your device's browser and Turkdroid have no control over it.
But I'll look into that anyway, thanks for the suggestion!

By PC I meant panda crazy I believe it does it by default. I can click on the queue inside panda crazy and it allows me to complete task(submit or return) after task but I see how that would be quite difficult in Android.
Off the top of my head I was imagining something such as.
1.Check if a job has been worked on from within the turkdroid queue (work button clicked)
1 b. if so, then keep checking if the one that was clicked on still exists in the queue.
1 c. If it doesn't then the job was returned or submitted and the next job in the queue (lowest time remaining) should automatically be started next.

Again not sure about feasibility but thought I'd give my thoughts anyways!
