- Create folder (adds a new share);
- Scan QR code (opens camera to scan the QR and connect to another share or device);
- Enter key (lets you enter a share key, for cases when QR code is not available);
- Camera backup (enables Camera Roll backup);
3. One of the sync shares and its inside expanded.

Overwrite any changed files: option to re-download the files from the source peer if this file gets changed on the mobile. This option is available for Read-only shares. Detailed description on what this option does see here.
Use relay server: enables/disables relay server. Relay servers are used when peers cannot connect directly to each other.
Use tracker server: enabled/disables tracker server. Tracker server is necessary for peer discovery over WAN.
