Love the app! One issue is that as I use this through a mobile phone which also acts as a mobile hotspot for my PC there are some connection issues as in it doesn't find the PC after awhile. Restarting mobile hotspot fixes the issue. I know it's not something that's really "supposed" to work but Chromecast works too this way again these days, so I guess this could too.
This is the sort of brilliantly functional app you would expect from GNU/Linux community developers. It works almost perfectly on my LG G3 with KDE Connect packages from the Debian repositories. One of the only disadvantages is that the Linux side is dependent on a lot of KDE packages which you will have to install even if you use another desktop environment such as Gnome.
This app saves me so much time, doing day to day tasks. Being able to see what notifications come through my phone saves me time, the synced clipboard makes sending links to my friends 10x easier. Nothing like this exists on Windows for free, and that really says something about how dedicated KDE's developers are on making a truly innovative desktop environment. Keep up the good work, I'll be donating soon!
Once my PC keyboard was broke. So I was using virtual keyboard of Connect. Also Wifi file transfers just works, great. But it couldn't get to my SD card for some reason (rights or path, d/n), internal memory just worked.
This is a great app for us KDE users (suck it airdroid 😋) My only bitching would be: 1- Needs a small guide as to what/how to install it on KDE side. It could be one paragraph on the app page or when you open the app for the first time. 2- I wish the file transfers were both ways (if it in fact is, I couldn't find a way to do it). Now it's only from the phone to PC. looking forward to new features :)
the update doesn't support Clementine Media Player. if i knew this i wouldn't have updated to this version. very dissapointed. please fix this and i will give 5 stars. apart from this Great App. The Best. keep up the great work.
