Thanks for your app, it enhances usability of my phone a lot.

There's one issue that puzzles me, just don't know if it's me or for everyone: sailfish-connect and kde-connect don't see each other if the phone is connected via USB / developer-mode. I can contact the instance via `openssl s_client ...` so it does not seem to be a network issue. Connection via wifi work without any issue.
