It's become an essential part of my tech setup, and I truly love it. The integration it offers is incredibly useful. It makes working seamlessly between my Windows and Android devices a breeze. The user-friendly interface and thoughtful feature set make this app a standout choice. It's made my daily tasks more efficient and has simplified my workflow.

Used to connect easily a year ago, now it doesn't seem to work. The different setup methods don't work are just confusing. Instructions about syncing the app with my hotmail account make no sense when I'm already logged into the app with that same account! Well, it was a nice feature when it worked a year ago, but now it's time to delete this and move on.

Phone link connectivity seems to have improved a lot and it's gotten an incredible set of features now. Run multiple apps, have multiple phones linked to multiple PCs, control your phone screen. It even has a pretty useful widget for the PC now. The main problem is that you can no longer unlock your phone screen by entering the PIN into phone link. So you have to have your phone in your hand to unlock it before opening an app or screen on your PC. This is an extraordinary inconvenience.
