Excellent program (9/10), app wrapper could use some polish (7/10), but all primary features are readily available with the advanced options accessible in the web setup (with a built-in link for access) But despite its small downfalls, it has a few astonishing surprises like disabling sync when in battery saving mode! Almost never use it, but it's nice to know it'll respect my wish to save battery without entering the app to manually disable it

It's a mostly-good tool, and I don't know of one of its kind that does it better, but it's a mixed bag. Pros: Free and Open Source decentralized file syncing, robust platform support, functional UI, respect for privacy, good feature set, and it usually works. Cons: It's difficult to get set up, the phone app can burn through a lot of battery life, and it can have a delete scare or two with treating a half-synced version as the master copy. After some learning and some caution, it's good enough.

Great app for file syncing between all my devices. Excellent alternative to cloud-based options, though not the easiest thing to set up. Good to be able to control my own data. Very reasonable battery usage (only 2% out of 40% so far), unlike others' experience. I had to knock off 2 stars since it requires Location permissions for some unknown reason. If this was clear, or if I could remove that permission, easily 5 stars.
