Known Issues

Android

Under Android 9 and some later Android 8 releases (API 26 and up), getting the name of the network to which the host phone is connected requires permission to be granted by the user. We are working to add this, but until we do, the SETUP page’s Network Name field will be empty and will not be pre-set with the name of the network to which the host phone is connected.

Versions of the app older than 4.5.4 (released September 28, 2018) no longer work — please update to the most recent release.

iOS

None.
