    Yep, battery was a pita, got hot, but it's my backup if the S6 dies a horrible death. It did hold up to lots of flashing though, couldn't say how many different roms have seen life there. IMO, it's the perfect size phone for one hand, easy op.

    It did feel good in the hands. I flashed that phone like crazy myself.

    I wish they would also make it compatible with Windows 10 so I can install on 3 Pcs in different rooms.

    You want to set the PCs up as viewers or cameras?

    As cameras, so I don't have to use 3 different apps like I do now. One app for foscam ip camera, another app for Windows Web cams and another for Android cams.

    See what I mean?
    I like Alfred's interface better then all others. Would be nice to consolidate all formats into one viewer.

    Does anyone know why the app no longer shows up at the Play Store?
    The link in the original post brings up "not found" also.

    The name changed, possibly. I contacted them via Facebook.

    I found another app by them that looks to be the same.

    Odd, did Alfred not like his name being used?

    I go to your link and it's shown as a different app?
