*update: Tracked down some info somewhere suggesting to put in remote dns field. Been working since. Not sure it's a shadowsocks issue so giving back some stars. Better help would be nice.* Well it used to work. Now it doesn't. Reinstalled three times now. Failed to detect internet connection. Unable to resolve host. Nonsense. Unstable and unreliable for days. Every once in awhile it works for some reason, then goes back to not working again.

Thanks for this application. It is great when using Internet behind corporate firewalls. However, recently the VPN mode stopped working for Internet connections. It works for local ips in the server location only. Proxy mode still works fine. So I'm using Firefox and foxyproxy. So I'm guessing it's a phone issue, not really an app issue. Phone​ is a Samsung s21 running android 13

If I could give less than 1 star I would. I have paid for a subscription and have been using this horrible application since July. The application is unstable. I have 7 different servers and all of them don't work with FB, IG, ect. I have a 200mb line at home and I will be lucky to get 2mb when this vpn is connected. In the evenings this app just doesn't work because the servers are to slow.
