This app is amazing. Especially after I fixed the no notification problem. I had to allow the app to run in the background and not use battery saver. There are still a couple of problems like messaging and mounting my phone as a drive, but the main thing is that I can see those notifications and reply to people. About the messaging, I can reply to people just fine. However, it doesn't show it sent the message I typed to them. Although I know that they got it, because they reply back to me.

Not a fan of the new color scheme. I miss the pure black. That being said, this is a necessity for pairing with any linux machine. Remote file browsing is amazing (yes on linux you can copy entire folders both ways, rename files, open, edit, or delete by using the native PC file explorer to browse the phone). This app quite literally gives the most incredible conveniences without sacrificing privacy because it's all done on the local network. If it disconnects, just force close and open again 👍

Absolutely amazing, the file/clipboard transfer is bonkers-usefull, could use some small features like the ability for pens over remote input or maybe remote desktop if your on PC. The ping doesn't seem to work and I didn't like the notification on desktop, easy enough to disable. The find device is nice and having multiple devices paired to each other is overly easy. Good work.
