I use a DDNS address to connect to NextCloud on my home network, to synchronize my phone remotely. For some reason the IT geniuses won't whitelist my URL on the county wifi, so I have to use the IP. NextCloud apparently won't work when I use the IP. So either I find a way to change hosts file on my non-rooted Note 8, or I sync everything over my data plan. This app did the trick, simple as that. It does come up as a VPN, which I found odd, but it accomplished what I needed so it's good.

Had high hopes for this app, but it didn't work for me at all. Additionally, the app kept stopping when attempting to export. It did appear to download the host file from the desired web address. But, the file size of the file retrieved using Host Go was smaller than the one downloaded without the app, and could not be read with the file viewers installed on my device, making me somewhat suspicious. Finally, gave up and uninstalled. Just my experience. .

Needs to harden up. . This app is exactly what I was looking for, and it functions very well. My number one complaint is it's killed too easily.. 4 out of 5 times I unlock the screen and the app is not running. I do have it on the power management exception list, but it doesn't seem to matter. I think it needs a launch service to keep it alive when Android has other plans. Another thing I think it could use is an app exemption list so apps like Captive Portal login aren't sent through the VPN.
