[0.7] Node-RED Client Editor app update: Push Notification (22 Nov)

I decide to develope a mobile app for Node RED, support Dashboard and Admin automatically login and native features: background location tracking, push notification, voice command, mqtt client, wysiwyg editor...

This is a new thread of [0.5 Release on Play,App Store] A mobile client for Node-RED Dashboard and Admin (update 09Nov). I cannot modify old one (forum policy) anymore, so must create a new to update info

I've been wanting an app like this so I was excited to install it. I don't think I can use it though because I don't have/use a NR dashboard and it won't let me save the config without a url for one. Is there a way around this?

Just input http:// and then you go
