7
After all the transfer is completely done, close WiFi-transfer page.

Great app

Has always been a great app, but after purchasing it full price before GR5, then re purchasing it after the major update - for them to add dark mode and make it a paid (not even one time purchase but subscription cycle) feature is very bad taste. It should be free, especially given the price of the app, and long time supporters have likely purchased the app twice due to the update years back, as well as generated GR revenue by recommending to friends etc. other than that, it's been solid over the years.
