How do you add new entries to the iOS app?

I just upgraded the iOS App (12/19/2017).
I don't use it often.
But I will be out and have to check on something.
So the main page has:
  • The title at the top
  • A text box instructing to install the host (which I've done, several times)
  • A box where one of my hosts is listed, with a ... on the right side of this box
  • A 'Connect' button
  • At the bottom there's a 'Settings'
  • At the bottom there's an 'i' button

If I click on the listed host, it brings up a keyboard to edit the name of this host.

If I click on the ... in the host text box it pops down a list of the hosts I've defined.
I can click on them.
Or I can click on 'clear list'
But there's no 'new entry'

'Settings' had 'Default connection properties' & 'Error log' & 'How to use'

'How to use' explains about touch and tapping, which is helpful. But not how to add a new host.

The 'i' button tells me the version of the app.

I see no 'create new entry'.

How do I connect to a new host from here?

Oh. I see it now.

The text box contains the preexisting host names. Ones I added a long time ago. Maybe 1 year and I forgot how I did it.

This is an editable text box. I thought it was editing the name of the current host.

But, no, typing a new host ID in here creates a new entry. And then the 'Connect' button connects to what you just typed.

Seems obvious now ;)

Hello John,

Sorry for somewhat primitive interface in the mobile version. We are going to significantly improve it quite soon, namely add a full-fledged address book which can be synced with the desktop Viewer.
