First of all I must say how excited I am with the new Android client! I've been looking forward to this for quite a while and now it's here!
What would make it a complete solution to me is the possibility (like on the windows client) to auto start the application when starting the phone/tablet *and* automatically logging on.
This way android devices can be used as 'unattended' servers! From security cams to webservers!
Right now the client does not reconnect in case of a network disruption. It would be great to have the client automatically reconnect in case of switching between 3g and wifi, or even when roaming or switching between wifi networks.
I thank you very much!
Regards,

Mike.

+1 on this idea.

I am using NR on my android phone and run a SIP client over it. Sometimes NR disconnects and I don't notice -- no phone service until I reconnect it manually.

Probably there's a way to script this -- suggestions? But best would be if it were an option included in the app.

Lost phone security is not really a concern. If the phone was lost, I would change the password for it to lock it out.

Thanks!
Mark

OK, so this should still be a feature in the Android client - try to reconnect periodically or when the network changes (i.e. wifi->cell or cell->wifi). Please add!! :-)

In the mean-time, I created a workaround:

You need:

1. A rooted device.
2. Some programming/hacking experience as my script will probably need some adjustment to work on different devices/ROMs.
3. Automagic (Android play store $4)
4. Download the EAP test build of Automagic from their forum.
5. Use my "Flow" (Automagic's name for their script) which you can get here http://automagic4android.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=3040&p=6392#p6392

My Flow detects a change in Network state, runs Neorouter, and clicks the Sign-in button. Note: No support provided by me (see #2 above ;-)

I hope this helps someone!

Sorry to raise this necro topic, but I REALLY want this functionality as well.

To be truly useful and secure on mobile networks, we need NeoRouter to be connected. An auto-reconnect feature would be a BIG selling point.

Please let me know if I can help in any way to get this feature implemented. Would be glad to test or even take a crack at the coding required.
