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.
Love the idea behind this app because I think filters are healthy for anyone, but more times than not, I can't load a page because it's not "allowed." These aren't sites I want or would expect to be blocked either, so it can be very frustrating. I agree with other users that say the settings we use on our computers should be transferrable to our phone and tablet devices. I mean, something like that has to be possible, right??
