    I use my LiveView to control the media player in the car. The Sony version remembers where you were when you turn the LiveView screen back on. This version doesn't so you have to navigate to the media controls every time. This means you have to take your eyes off the road.

    Uses less RAM than the original Liveview program, also shows phone battery usage which is helpful. Lastly, there is a function to find the Liveview.

    It was amazing when I first got it, now the app is unstable on my phone and constantly crashing and losing connection. I'm about ready to go back to the official firmware.
