Great app. Would do a fantastic job at protests or wherever the communications fell. It should be updated to the material design though. The actual one left me a bit puzzled at first sight. It should be more intuitive using it. Overall it's a great idea but it needs to be perfected
It works well on my Samsung s5 & s7 Edge phones, plus an Alps chinese phablet. All without rooting! Great idea in case you are out of network range and need to communicate in the near range. I liked the concept of putting a spare phone up a tree to increase coverage. Instant repeater!!
not android compatible I was so excited to try the app out. I don't see any other application claim to do what this does. When I tried to make a call, I received a message that android phones have to be rooted to work.
5 Star to concept, 1 Star to app Destroyed everything related to wifi in all my phones. Even hotspot service is not working now. Something is really going haywire in the app. Needs serious improvement.
PLEASE! Notice!! This app is great! As I get to this app..i told to most of my friends and they are great usefulness with this app.. But... PLEASE add the "video chat" capacity in this same method!... Please! I'm begging you! T-T
Resilient automated (and simulated) shared folder of files for whole network using app . Ppl complain, u need root. Not for the file share! i installed on all 3 of my devices ten minutes after dloading. I use dropbox for file transfer btween devices. This app saves me about ten clicks each time I want to transfer a file. Also no internet needed 4 that. App can make phone to phone networks. This is the next big tech after cellphone towers I guarantee you.. Clever. Really clever and i cant wait for the next power outage. Never seen anythingblike this before. A+. Also, if your Internet gets wonky, unclick the networks and uncheck the 'active' box, then force quit the app. App needs a shutdown button but... Super impressed.
* Greatly reduced power drain, especially when no peers are present
* Bluetooth has been added as a usable network transport
* Improved support for more recent versions of Android
* Improved feedback while networks are changing
