Displays information about the current connect action

The app will use a local internet connection to connect to another device running the same app.
WiFi is suggested for speed as some actions may transfer a large amount of data, but it should still work over a 3G connection.

The process involves getting the two apps to 'find' each other,
then either app can choose an action.


Disconnecting at any time will break the link between the devices.

Once connected will display a scrollable list of the actions that can be performed
