Great app! Easy to use and works perfectly on my S20. I tried another app before this, which implemented just about every kind of server in the world, had a million options, and I could never get it working. I had this one up and running in no time. I'm using it to mount my phone from linux using sshfs. Then I use my favorite open source file syncing application, JFileSync to synchronize music and pictures between my PC and phone. No cable required. I also tried with FileZilla as an SFTP client and it works great. This solves a major headache for me. Windows changed the way it mounts phones a while ago. Instead of mounting as a storage device, it now uses MTP. So, applications that expect to see a storage device don't work anymore. Mounting the phone from linux is even more ridiculous. It works sometimes, but usually ends up totally freezing. People started reporting this bug on linux like five years ago with no fix in sight. Who knew syncing files with my phone over a USB cable would become such a nightmare? This app solves all that nonsense and eliminates the cable.

Great app, but one very important feature to me doesn't want to work on my nVidia Shield TV box - auto start of the SSH server. Every time I reboot my box, the SSH server shows as not running or not able to accept connections. I keep all options to auto start the server enabled, but still they don't auto start it after reboot. If this is not fixed in the near future I'll be switching to the similar apps from other providers where auto start feature works 100% on my box. Other than that, it's a very useful, good working and practical tool.
