    As far as I can tell it temporarily sets your mobile phone (that the app is running on) as the highest priority device in your network. So you should get log latency when using it for gaming.
    No idea if it’s a blanket setting for all traffic to the device (so useful for non gaming stuff too) or just tries to prioritise only gaming related packets.

    Wonder what setting it changes in the router. Will it work even with QoS disabled?

    I noticed that after using it, it changed my adaptive qos settings to traditional qos.

    @Andy1932, 'apps', when you want to screw up everything with a single push/swipe. We've never had it so easy! :)

    Yep! I play PUBG mobile, so I thought it would be any easy way get highest priority. The app caused several other issues, so it was quickly deleted!
