Interface is a bit ugly and clunky, but other than that it does exactly what I was hoping. Really easy to set up. My console is far from my PC and twice now I've thought I was recording only to realize an hour later that I wasn't. That's the worst feeling. This way I can use my phone to make sure everything's going good on my PC. Update Sep 2022 - No longer works since OBS version 28. Updated websocket to v5 as recommended and now it no longer connects.

Great app experience overall! It has a good layout. The issue I'm having is SteamCTRL no longer connects to any Twitch chats. It will act as if nothing happened. I'm not sure if this is an issue with my phone or if it's a back-end issue. Seems to be back-end after going through a few troubleshooting steps. Is there anyone I can contact about this?

This app is near perfect. It works and is pretty easy to customize as long as you take a few minutes to get familiar with the UI. My only two problems with the app is I can't watch a preview of my stream, not sure if it depends on if I'm live, and can't set the chat I wanna watch. By default it should be my own twitch chat that pops up but I can see uses for why it wouldn't be automatically like that. Otherwise this app is amazing and is gonna increase the production value of my stream
