About this app

The Termux:Boot add-on provides functionality to run programs under Termux when the device boots up.

- Create the ~/.termux/boot/ directory.
- Put scripts you want to execute inside the ~/.termux/boot/ directory.
- If there are multiple files, they will be executed in a sorted order.

Termux is a great program. But when I attempt "mkdir ~/.termux/boot", it just gives me a directory not found error. Where should the boot folder be located within the full Termux App environment? Should it be in the root com.termux? or the home or usr directory?

5 stars for actually having a functional on boot that works. 1 star for charging that much for it. Average..3 stars. Something to spend useless play dollars on.
