It works fine for checking notifications and sending texts. However, the advertised feature of accessing apps from my PC does not work even though I gave it the appropriate permissions. Edit: They need to be clear about what devices are compatible with this feature and allow more lower-end device users to be able to have this useful feature.

Useful for transferring files to and from the phone without a cable, incredibly frustrating when you are not using the app and turn your computer on only for your phone to notify you 100 times in a row that "Link to Windows is turned off, turn it on in the settings to get started!" I turned the app off because I'm not using it, shut up! I have to put my phone on silent when my pc is on because of the constant notifications, which by the way are locked 'On' and can't be disabled.

This app acts like a virus. It won't let you turn it off, it won't let you disable it. It alerts on my phone repeatedly twice every 30 seconds even after I try to turn it off. It then just alerts to reconnect. There is no uninstall option, so my only choice was to unlink my device just so I can get some peace while I work. I had it so I would get SOME notifications between my PC and phone. Not a constant barrage of notifications that set my anxiety on edge.
