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
8.1.2017, uninstalled, it seems whenever my battery is getting low while im trying to do somethi g, this app is right there in the background draining my battery, even though I'm not using it. 7.18 2017 update: I caught it draining my battery today, even though I was not using it, it was off, so i might uninstall it. Original test: IT WORKS! Yes, I know low expectations, but the fact that it works is pretty cool. This is a radio that EVERYONE has, and in case of a power outage at the cell tower, this, with an external antenna, is a working walkie-talkie. Without an antenna, I tested two Galaxy phones (an S3 and S6) to work at least to about 100 feet that I had a chance to test, with walls in between. I will test it with longer distances.
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.
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.
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.
If you guys can update this to where we can use proxy for data as seen on a youtube video, I can put this on a ham radio tower WiFi pinging through my neighborhood and get more people to test it. Sevier County Tennessee. I've so far tested it on: Galaxy Note 4, Nexus 6, 1plus 1, Galaxy Alpha no root, Moto Z Play no root, Galaxy S7 & Edge. all these listed are working
* Greatly reduced power drain, especially when no peers are present
