Works great, with an intuitive interface. FYI for other users, initially when testing the app internally on my LAN, the message wasn't being received by the target machine. This was due to my phone sending the messages through my cell network, instead of to my WiFi, because I had set my WiFi Calling to "Cellular Preferred". This can be resolved by activating airplane mode and then turning-on WiFi, or by setting WiFi Calling to "WiFi Preferred". This is probably obvious to most people but initially misled me into thinking my PC config was incorrect. Another FYI, is that 2 different machines of mine had the default MS-installed driver for the "Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller" which prevented WOL from working. This was solved by downloading the latest driver directly from Realtek.

This app is great. Does everything that I need. Using port forwarding on my router I was able to turn on my PC via this app remotely (outside my network). But please, could you make at least a confirmation like "do you really want to turn on this pc?". Many times I've woken up my PC by accidentally clicking it, it's not really fun when you're far from home and have to RDP to the PC to shut it off...

When using this for WoW-LAN it seems to work fine when waking from sleep mode but, as expected, it does not work when waking from s4 (hibernate) or s5 (soft-off) states, even though my motherboard supports WoL on s5 (although I've heard that Windows no longer supports WoL on s4/s5 anyway). I haven't tried it with a wired connection because my router is downstairs and I cba moving it. It probably wouldn't work anyway thanks to Windows being Windows.
