Problem summary:
I can't find the button to set my home folder on iOS (this is present on Android)

Which version of the app are you using?
iPhone

Which helper version are you using?
Not using helper, vlc is streaming from an rpi.

Hi - I'm not sure what function you're referring to here.
Also - you mention streaming. Are you asking about VLC Remote or VLC Streamer?

Wow, super quick response, thanks.

Using VLC Remote to control vlc on my rpi.

I have the app installed on iOS and Android devices. The Android version allows me to set a custom HOME folder.

I cannot find this feature isn't on iOS.

not sure what app that is, but it isn't VLC Remote!

Quite right, it's VLC Mobile Remote, not VLC Remote.

Apologies.

Could VLC Remote get the option?

no - VLC Remote just assumes the home location and remembers the last place you browsed.

I think that's a much cleaner answer 
(it does work less well on Linux - but that's a tiny percentage of the user base)
