Second best safe web browser for iPhone
This is a very effective safe browser, has few if any faults. Better than Mobicip in default mode, second-best to Mobicip if you pay the $10 to get a premium Mobicip account.
Note that the reason you can't directly open files from links because Apple limits that to Safari by design. Custom site blocking is unfortunately not available with the phone app, but is available in the Mobicip app with a $10 premium account.
Note that to make your iOS device "safe", you must also set the parental controls and disable Safari. No third-party browser can do this for you, you have to take the extra step.
Would pay money for this app!!!
Overall a great app that helps filter inappropriate web content, but have had problems with the app crashing in the past. We would be willing to pay for this app in order for them to make improvements to it! It does a good job at filtering against inappropriate web content.
Could use improvements here and there, but still rated it high because we love what the app does!
It would be nice if it had the ability to whitelist sites. I wish the icon was more browser looking than a little dog and say Secure Browser or something. The reason i downloaded this is because I trust bluecoat. They are the best and most expensive for corporate URL filtering but they're very good at tracking malicious sites and blocking them
