App used to be good. After a period of time the author updated the app from the functional PAID FOR good version to now requiring a subscription to use. I do not recommend. Taking something functional and paid for and forcing a subscription is scummy as heck. This wasn't the first time something similar had happened prior with a fully paid for version in the app store. The functionality was removed and replaced and whoever previously bought the app was forced to rebuy it.

What I have discovered is that Google has removed the license from it play store server. When the app dials in for permission, it does not find it. Developer is working on it. Sad, the way Google operates. My guess is the bloatware people complained about it and pressured Google to take this action. In my case, often, bloatware will pop up some message or something on the screen. My drivers scan packages in with their barcode scanners. An pop up interrupts it, often no one aware of it until the driver checks, and instead of his upload, there is nothing but an advertisement on the screen. Shame on google. The good news is that it looks as if disable software stays disabled, for now. This is happening to all P.D. apps, LG, Samsung, Owner, etc.

If you don't consider yourself at least somewhat computer savvy, skip this APP all together. The process to enable Owner permissions can be super frustrating. Once you get through the installation process, the APP does exactly what it says it will. Following the instructions on the website for enabling Owner permissions alone will probably not work. You need to understand how to change your environment variables on your PC to get device communication working. Once you have comms, the instructions work perfectly. If you decide to try this APP, have some time to kill for troubleshooting.
