Hi Frank, It is recommended to be no further away than 20-30 feet from your Mosaic while in use. For best results, we advise streaming content that has a bit rate less than 1500KBPS. If you continue to experience these issue's it may be advisable to do a hard reset (using the pin hole on the side of the unit) To go into greater detail about how to do a hard reset, you can always email our support department at mosaic@powerstick.com Thank you

I have the Mosaic 3 with 64 GB. Icing either iPad 2 or iPod 5th Generation (iOS 9.3.1) videos with MP4 format stutter. I'm thinking 1- anything higher than 720P takes a toll. 2- Mosaic has to be in line of sight?
I've gotten the new iPad Pro 9.7 so will test it out to see if I get same stuttering/lag

Hi guys, Can you let us know what models of Mosaic you have, what operating systems you are using and finally, what file formats you are trying to stream. Thank you!

Review from Kickstarter
Holden McSweeney, ditto here. Videos including the ones included are unwatchable due to stuttering and lag. Shame as this was the primary reason for supporting the project.

So far so good, only complaint is I get quite a bit of lag at times. Anyone else experiencing the same. Seems to be line of site to not get lag. Any suggestions Powerstick? Any yes I did reset. Thanks.

You have the option of turning this on when you set up your phone or tablet. If it is currently off. Go to: Settings > Privacy > Diagnostics & Usage. Click automatically send. Thank you

Guys,
From your response to Osman, how does one enable "send report" on an iPad?
Thanks.
Powerstick
Review from Kickstarter
Good question Osman, To use either Chromecast or Apple TV with the Mosaic all you have to do is have your mobile device, and the streaming device, joined to the Mosaics wifi network. Concerning the crash, if you have "send report" enabled on your ipad our development team can capture the information from the crash report. Let us know if you have any further questions. We can also be reached at mosaic@powerstick.com Thank you

Hi Osman,
In answer to your battery meter question, this is a feature we would like to add.
Our engineering group is looking into how this could be done and we hope to be able to provide an answer in the next few weeks.
Thanks

Hi Osman,
Thanks for your message.
Yes, you can add an external drive to Mosaic and have the contents managed by the app.
You dont have to do anything to the exsternal's contents first.
Just plug and play.

Review from Kickstarter
Also is there a possibility for you to update the firmware to show the battery percentage in the app ? Thanks

@creator First I would like to thank you for my package I activated it yesterday added some media and an hour ago managed to connect it to my internet and the picture was correctly printed on the box... One question , can I add a hdd or a memory stick to the USB port for additional media or it is only used for charging ?

This product is terrible! After receiving my mosaic I have wasted numerous hours trying to get it to do what I want/what I need. The implementation is awful, it's buggy and it doesn't do what you promised. I came on here to vent my frustrations and I can see that the general consensus is along the same lines. Very disappointed.

hi guys. got my mosaic and also had to pay an extra 32GBP....npot a nice surprise. anyway, now its here, i'd appreciate a solution to get this connected to the internet too. i want my device to be able to access the mosaic and the internet at the same time.

Review from Kickstarter
Doesn't allow me to connect my phone and mosaic to Internet. Haven't gotten it to do much except to be a 200 dollar paperweight. Overall, extremely disappointed by this. I'm guessing there's no way to get my money back..

Hi I have been trying to solve the issues on my Mosaic but it won't let me connect to my I pad or iPhone. I have to restart it every time I try to watch a new video or play music on any of my apple products.
Please let me know how to fix the issues...

@Barrett, we are sorry to hear you are experiencing issues with your Mosaic. Could you get in touch with us through mosaic@powerstick.com so we can get you fixed up, thank you.

Review from Kickstarter
Not only is Mosaic far from amazing. It completely fails on its promise to "make your phone amazing in ways it's not." I still have an over-full phone. I'm out cash. And I've got another dissatisfying device that didn't come close to solving even one of the problems its purported to address. Heck after multiple attempts and more reboots and reconnections than I can count, I still can't even get the MOSAIC to connect to the Internet. UI element buttons that don't look like buttons. Micro fonts and un-styled text on wifi search page. Product case shell design that looks like a 1980's plastic hobbyists electronics handy box. Style: 1 out of 5
Function: 0 out of 5
App: 1 out of 5 Retail product success chance: 0

Review from Kickstarter
Thoroughly unimpressed. Only positive feedback is the construction seems passable. Product design is VERY dated despite being a new device. Even the product logo is a design mess. But that would be acceptable if the device worked. Simply put, it's crap! Pain in the arse to use. Slow. Difficult to get working. Terrible UI. Can't even seem to play the tutorial videos. Extremely dissatisfied. Waste of money. :(

@kokobin Shipping was included in your pledge. Was that charge possibly duties, taxes or import?

I got my 264GB mosaic today in UK.
Had to fork out £32 VAT. No indication the shipment is a reward for backing a project.
I had to hold back a number of 4 letter words to match my mood.

Hi Mosaic Team! Can we get an update on shipping the 256 GB early bird special? Thanks!

Review from Kickstarter
I got my Mosaic and tested it on my iDevices. Loved it when I played a couple TV shows for my daughter. Haven't tried a full length movie though. Had a couple issues but PowerStick were quick to respond and provide resolutions:
1. I changed the Mosaic Wifi Settings to connect to my Wifi Network and it stopped responding. The solution: turn it on, wait 3 minutes and try connecting to it again. It worked. :D I was just not patient enough it seems.
2. Creating playlists. PowerStick responded quickly on how to do that and even built a quick video that I expect they should publish soon. In addition, I have made some recommendations which they are already looking into putting on the app update track:
1. A memory space tracker to see the used and available memory space;
2. A battery tracker to see the current status of the battery; and
3. A simpler way to build playlists (as I found it was not very intuitive... but that's my personal opinion). Looking forward to using it more when travelling. :D

Still waiting for my 256GB custom Mosaic. Haven't got an email yet, so I'm guessing it hasn't shipped yet,and I feel as though that reward level will be last to ship.

Hello guys. I'm sorry for the delay, I know I saw it somewhere but I can't find it now; What size and resolution and aspect ratio does the custom image need to be to personalise our mosaic?
