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.
Root shell missing. I run the test option but it keeps telling me the root shell is missing, not sure what that means exactly.
One way to bypass tether restrictions on AT&T phone. Tor proxy is another...
* 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
