 Seems OK  ......... Time will tell but so far it seems stable I do agree an option to select multiple tests as opposed to a kind of all or nothing ui on the hardware would be useful ....... As it is not always practical to run all tests or indeed do the one at a time.

Like I say time will tell but it is a pretty reasonable beta and a good thought

Serviceit has become the Lenovo Companion....Improved functionality and a cool new UI !

Pretty nice APP to check the systems of the Hardware. I found two typos . You meant Front camera and rear camera.Screenshot_2015-03-03-20-34-23-069.jpeg

The app uses your phone/tablet pre-set language.If there's a translation problem....Isn't the app's ''fault''.

With the exlcusion of the application update mechanism for the program,

(and an occassional crash, but hey... it's beta) it works nicely.


Inside the app, the update fails due to a 'parsing error', and the google play release isn't compatible with the yoga 2 1050 for some reason.


Since the google play release isn't available,

could you post  the updated version [ (released 2015-05-19 11:03:37)] to this page?

Not Compatible with my device  Yoga 2 1050 F with lollipop 5.01 received update last night

Not compatible with my device (YOGA 2 1050F w/ Lollipop 5.01 update).  Just got the update last night,  too. And I lost Google Play Movies functionality &  I can't find out how to rectify the problem. Really annoying.
