Samsung Note 4 5.0.1 / App concept is good, when I connect MHL cable app works as expected, but at HDMI disconnection screen doesn't turn-on, I may to reboot my phone to continue working. I've tested other settings but app continues failing. Also phone becomes hot after a while. Please fix that annoying error.

Still doesn't work as well as it should. It seems to work fine the first time I connect to HDMI, but when I unplug it, it doesn't want to release the connection or something because the screen stays off and I can't get it to turn on. The setting screen is also more complicated than it should be and the settings aren't explained well enough. When it's more user friendly and doesn't have issues disconnecting from HDMI, I will rate it 5 stars.
