Bug ID: 409707
           Summary: Add an option to allow KDE Connect to run at Android
           Product: kdeconnect
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Android
                OS: Android 7.x
            Status: REPORTED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: android-application
  Target Milestone: ---


Add an option to allow KDE Connect to auto run at startup on the Android app.

1. Start KDEConnect on the Android device.
2. Reboot the Android device.


I have to manually restart KDEConnect to reconnect to my computer and have no
way of changing that.


I would like to see an option in the app settings that allows it to run at
startup. Yes, this means getting another permission, but only if the user
checks the box for it to run. It could even be set to "off" by default so that
the permission is only asked when activated.

I am working on getting up to speed on current Android development. Maybe once
I've caught up, then I could work on such an option if someone else hasn't
already implemented it?

Android: 7.1.1 Build Z971V2.0.0B13 (ZTE Blade Spark)
KDEConnect app: 1.12.93 (according to FDroid)

Windows: N/A
macOS: N/A
Linux/KDE Plasma: N/A
(available in About System)
KDE Plasma Version: N/A
KDE Frameworks Version: N/A 
Qt Version: N/A

I was seeing many of the reported behaviors from other bug reports (especially
bug #368438); however, that all seemed to stop once I set the persistent hidden
notification (which is totally an Android OS issue). Additionally, the app
seems to behave quite well when connected to a network that has no other
KDEConnect device. The only thing I wish it would do that it doesn't is to run
on Android startup. This is kind of important for me because my most common
usage scenario is to find my phone from my desktop computer (Debian
Testing--currently Bullseye) and also to get notifications from my phone on my
desktop. If I forget to start the app, none of that can happen, unless it
starts when Android does.
