What's New in Version 1.1.196
Fix memory leaks
Add iOS 8 compatibility
As a long-time user, I say "STAY AWAY"!
I've been using the K9 browser for our family for years now. Initially it worked fine, but as the iOS updates have come along, the browser has become increasingly unstable. Frankly, I've just put up with it. As I'm in the middle of reading a web page, the browser will just crash, disappear, and then reload. Often it just becomes unresponsive, requiring a force shut down and restart. With the new Apple iOS 9, it's become even worse. Unbearable, really.
This app does not get updated. Ever. I cannot remember the last time it updated. I've tried to email "Blue Coat", the developer. No response. Tried again, same result. I think they took their "blue coat" and hung it up, for good. It's probably in that hall closet where old coats are left to get eaten by moths and eventually thrown out.
Do yourself a favor and avoid the constant exasperation. It's not worth it. This app is waaaaay too buggy to use. It pains me, as it used to be so good. But alas, all good this must come to an end. And it's time to shoot this thing and put it out of its misery.
I think it is a decent Browser
I am an Adult who doesn't like Pornography or Adult Websites. So I use this Browser and find it to be ok.
The Layout is simple nothing fancy but works ok.
There are other Browsers similar to this here at the Apple Store, however I found this to be the easiest to use and not complicated.
There are some Reviews here that claim this Browser blocks to many things, then that means they set this Browser up incorrectly and need to adjust settings on their Phone.
Great safety tool for my son
I let my son use my phone to play games, and he recently discovered how to talk to Siri to get her to show him lego videos... You get why I would be worried. So, BlueCoat is wonderful. I was using it in college for my computer years ago and have loved it ever since. One thing though: Can we please update the logo to something a little more stylistic? That dog is just a bit too 90s.
