For those who are experiencing crashing, find the last apk version from 2016 and install it. That's what I had to do on my Nokia, and it's working perfectly. I had payed for this app a long time ago and felt annoyed when the new version crashed on my new phone, but since I have a working version now, I'll rate it 4 stars.

WARNING! I suspect this app is abandonware. Do not bother downloading if you use a recent Android (10+). Permissions and app management processes have prevented it from actually rwporting/managing your hotspot. WARNING! This app has worked perfectly to manage my shared wireless data. It's saved my wallet multiple times when a connected PC has started an unexpectedly large download!

I have a data plan of 200GB and want to share it on a hotspot using an old android phone. Problem is that the limit per day is only 800MB... If you could include a higher option like 200GB, then I'd continue using this app. But for now it's kind of useless to me. It has everything I need except for the silly limitation. If you change the limit, I'll change this to 5 stars.
