IT started out amazing! All of a sudden after so many hours the app uninstalls itself but says it's still there on my phone but deleted all memory that went into coding and programming. Ive tried to install the app on G.P. and downloading a APK file. All it does is complete the download just so I can't open any of the apps anymore. This is very very irritating. Would be 5 starts otherwise.

This makes the more interesting to use but I can't seem to get the termux-infrared-transmit command to work, I want to use it to make a IR remote for my tv, but I'm having trouble using it I have read the instructions but there not quite clear I keep getting too few argument and too many arguments errors, Is there something I'm missing. P.S I'm trying to transmit tv IR codes from remote central.

The only reason I got this was to send SMS messages using Tasker. I got it working just fine before they updated it to deactivate. Hours of configuring and development wasted. The developer still has it described as an available feature in the description but the API docs state it's no longer available.
