Folding@home is a project run by Stanford University managing a distributed computing setup based on computing power provided by individuals like you and me.
It use mathematical methods of protein folding to help find cures for diseases like Alzheimer's, ALS, Huntington's, Parkinson's disease and some kind of cancers.
This app is only useful for you if you are an active donor for the Folding@Home project. If you don't have the required client software (v7) installed this app will do nothing for you.
The app will not be part of the folding process itself. It can "only" be used to monitor and control your Folding@Home systems utilising the 3rd party API as provided by the client software v7 .
Only hostname, port and password for remote access need to be entered in order to see the progress for the work units your systems are assigned to. You can remotely control client with respect to stopping, pausing or finishing.
In addition the app deliver a simple statistic giving you a quick overview on your folding landscape. It also allows you to eMail the logfile in case you experience issues during folding and want to get help from others.

Ratings and Reviews
Nothing fancy, works fine
I was skeptical due to the review which says this doesn’t work, but thought I’d try anyway. The UI is a bit clunky and strange, but it functions just fine. I have a simple setup with one host and no password or SSH tunnel needed. I entered the name and hostname, saved the settings, and it started working immediately.
It does work using IP addresses
I also first used hostnames for my hosts, but got nothing. Had to use IP addresses even though my router assigns them via DHCP and therefore they will change sometime in the future, and I'll have to update them again in the app. And it does crash at times upon launch or while scrolling around. You also first need to get every host ready to be remotely controlled, but that's not a requirement specific to this app but a requirement of F@H architecture. Pro tip: Go to FoldingForumDotOrg and search for "FAHMM on iOS" to find the thread where this is all discussed. Once you get it working, it's awesome in-between crashes. I use this on my iPhone in addition to HFM on a WindowsPC host to manage all my hosts.
Clunky UI, crashes frequently
The UI for adding clients is very clunky and buggy, featuring a totally unnecessary "edit" mode (should be able to hit "+" without entering "edit" mode, and should be able to remove clients by simply left-swiping on them), a totally unnecessary toggle switch on each client entry, and controls that do not always accurately show/hide/disable with the state of "edit mode".
The app repeatedly crashes while trying to connect to clients to show their info; seems like it happens whenever it can't successfully connect to a configured client for some reason.
While it's nice to have an FAH client app on iPhone, this one needs a lot of work to get the quality up to an acceptable level.
