A good app! Bugs: 1: Long press a callsign in the message display and the box listing the options available gets smaller the closer to the top of the list the message is! 2: Says Google maps is not installed when I click on the Google map icon or the "directions to station" icon on the main map display. Don't know why it says that, I have Google Maps installed. 3: Setting custom notification sound for incoming messages doesn't work. Only plays the default sound (Samsung S21, Android 13).

I hadn't used this in a while, the last use was with the free version. That version stopped sending and receiving packets over TCP, despite all correct settings. So I uninstalled the free version, and paid for this new release. Same problems, no position reporting whatsoever. Nothing shown on the map. Nothing in the log. All required settings are correct. Bummer, it used to be great.
