#1 in Norway and Ireland, #2 in the UK and Emirates, #3 in the Netherlands, #5 in New Zealand and #7 in the US just within a week!
With this App you are able to browse from over 600 different IP-Addresses in over 100 countries !
As your connection is routed over 3 different Servers before reaching its destination (Website) there is no way for the other end to find out where you are.
To secure your data along the path it is fully encrypted with strong 128bit AES Encryption.
► You need the best Anonymity you can get ?
Just select "Random" from the menu,
and the Software will automatically change to a new IP-Address every few minutes.
► You need to connect to a website from a specific country ?
No problem, just select a Server from a Country you want to pretend browsing from. To do so, just tap on the IP-Address in the upper right of the screen.
► You need to access content which is blocked by your ISP ?
No problem, as your ISP can not see what sites you are accessing there is no way to block them either.

As your traffic will be relayed over three servers the browsing speed will be slower than direct browsing.
Covert browser is the only Browser on the App Store allowing you to browse the Internet with Tor,
however it is not affiliated with The Tor Project in any way and therefore carries no guarantee from The Tor Project about quality, suitability or anything else.
What's New in Version 1.3
> Fixes possible crash if launched while offline.
> Automatic reconnection after Multitasking and Screen-Lock.
Somewhat limited, but does exactly as it says. I won't tell you where I am but was accessing sites from a long list of exits in the UK, USA, Sweden.....wherever I wanted, pretty cool and anonymous which is what you are looking for? So yes a little slower, there has to be a price to pay, and a basic browser functionality, what's the problem. I'll be using this when I want a little privacy from government looking over my shoulder. Good job.
Great idea but it still has a way to go
The browser and TOR aspects work fine for me. Browsing is a bit slower as you would expect. I have 2 key issues: no browser history and no bookmarks/favourites. Having to manually type in URLs makes using the browser a pain.
Simplistic but functional
This is a simplistic but functional anonymizing browser. Yes - there are limitations - eg no bookmarks etc. and a reduction in speed but it allows access to sites which have been either geographically or otherwise restricted as well as offering IP address anonymization.
