Update: working great! Flip 5. I think I may not have did the setup properly on my previous review. But after waiting for the February release to be published, I retried install and setup and whoa! This is amazing. My friends with flip 4 are jealous and looking to upgrade to the 5 now. Old review: Looks nice but not working. All permissions are allowed. Paying for this too, so I hope it works soon.

Pretty disappointed so far. I originally used the free version (flip 4) and did not like the available home cover screen options. I paid for a subscription, which was supposed to add the ability to use my own images, but it doesn't work. I just get a pop up saying I need to give the app permissions. I have checked all the settings and see no option to give it permission to access photos. Also, there is no way to get past that popup message without closing the app. You can't back or tap out of it

This app truly lets you utilize the screen beyond Samsung's minimal options of apps to choose from. It's not perfect, but I appreciate the work that goes into this app. I wouldn't have bought it again (once for my flip 4 and again for my 5) otherwise.The Samsung UI recently received an update that messed being able to scroll down the app list and I couldn't hit next or pause my music or a video I was watching from the screen but after updating the CoverScreen OS app, the issue was resolved.
