    Doesn't work for me - 3 stars because its a well designed app, but for some reason, it doesn't work in my environment. Other WOL apps work fine from the same phone with identical variables, so it must be the way this app sends the magic packet.

    The wol protocol does not require hostname or ip address, only mac address. Forcing you to enter that information is a pain and unnecessary. Also most home networks use dynamic addressing, so the ip address will change occasionally forcing you to reconfigure the settings. Total waste of time.

    No problems using this app for LAN or WAN use. Very simple and straight forward.

    Love it! The app works like a charm! But I can't get the scheduler to work maybe I'm missing something a help file would be a good idea
