 +===== Android =====
 +On Android I use what is called '​Syncthing-Fork'​ on [[F-Droid]]. It adds some useful features over the official Android version.

 +==== Error (folder marker missing) ====
 +I've had this off-again on-again problem where a particular folder won't sync., showing the error message 'Error (folder marker missing)'​. Once this was solved just because syncthing-fork was out of date, but today I had to install [[Simple File Manager Pro]] from F-Droid (as they recommend), and then go to the synced. folder and manually create the file ''​.stfolder''​. This is supposed to happen automatically on upgrading.
