Only rsync+ssh I wanted to fetch via public rsync, but this frontend demands ssh.

Great app. The power of rsync at your finger tips. I had a scare when I missed files in my first trial, but choosing the right path for the local drive on the Android device solved it (use /storage/extSdCard/DCIM/Camera and stay away from /storage/emulated/...).

I'm running into the "won't work without wifi" issue as well. It seems to be because the rsync command line puts square brackets around the hostname in the rsync command line. As a workaround, I put in the raw ip address and it seems to work now.

Seems to need root Looks very promising and transparent (ssh, rsync to my computer instead of some cloud), however it tries to create a local /data/.ssh directory, which fails miserably on my non-rooted device. Very promising, but very unfortunate.
