Update: I think my assessment below was not correct. On further searching the internet for solutions to why this wasn't working for me and combing through the same answers everyone gave, one smart person finally gave an answer that seems to have solved my problem: changing from Public Network to Private Network. I have tested and have been able to wake my computer remotely now. So this app works fine for me. I used to be able to see if it was on or not but now I can't, so not sure what happened

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.

Worsks great! As long as you enable WOL on your router and make the several required Windows options related to WOL is set, then your good. I chose this app over most others due to its simplicity and decent modern design. One quark, I rather click to choose a pc and then click the wake but. I think click a pc in the list automatically starts the pc. You slip and click a pc you don't intend to now you have to shut down a pc you didn't want to wake. And lastly dark mode!!! 😁
