At first use, I was a little frustrated. After a bit, I got more comfortable and realized it's really easy to set up and can quickly get really complex (powerful), but I'm still a little frustrated. 1. I have to use a wired connection when using this with my work computer. There's no way around it since my personal phone isn't allowed on the secure office WiFi. After a little fiddling, it works pretty well, but on EVERY start of the app it starts the setup wizard, which I have to cancel out of followed by a pop-up error message about the WiFi, despite the fact I've selected USB as the connection type previously. 2. Occasionally I've found that the Windows application needs to be restarted if the phone loses it's connection (or at least something happens???). It will reconnect, but no matter what I do, the buttons won't show any longer on the phone. I found the restart command in the right click of the tray icon, and that fixed it each time. Fix at least issue number one and you'll have a buy and a better rating from me. I like my regular macropad I built, but it's not convenient to take back and forth to work and home. This lets me use macros wherever I am and lets me do some quick mods to the keys without having to code anything.

I use this daily for live streaming, and video recording with OBS. I do highly recommend Touch Portal. I love the app, but it does have a few things that could be made better. Please keep in mind I'm a power user, and come from a programming background when you read the following. 1. The app and PC desktop program need to both sometimes are difficult to get pro status to sync. My work around is to open the PC program, close it, open it again, and then open the app on your device. Once the PC program says connected it takes about 10 to 20 seconds and it seems to flash. At that point pro is working for me. 2.Some of the things you can do with the built in scripting features are a bit limited. I would like to see more complex if statements in the program. I would also like to see more complex file operations available. If you don't come from a programming background you would never miss these things though. 3. The Global Events do not always work properly. I have 2 buttons that dynamically change based on the active scene when they are pressed. What I want is the button to change visuals when I click on another button and change the scene. This should be possible with the global events, but it only works about 10% of the time right now.

At first it looked like a great app, which I needed for my mission critical application. I spent 2 days working on 2 pages and also got myself a Pro version. The next day, after renaming the page, it stopped to work with the message: [ERROR] (Page Request) Could not send page back, it does not exist. It seems that this app was not tested well and cannot be trusted. Another issue that I had was the initial setup. If by some reason the connection cannot not be established, there is no way to change parameters. The app is cycling and give you the same error message again and again. Killing and starting the app does not help - it still going through the same loop.
