Ratings and Reviews
Feedback for developers
This is an excellent app for browsing. It's by far the fastest and most intuitive browser of its kind.
Here is my primary concern for the developers:
The email that is sent out to my accountability partners is often long and not easy to read. There are a lot of sites that I visit that get flagged inappropriately (including google sometimes) which makes it difficult for accountability partners to keep track of my activities. These false alarms force them to check every site to make sure that it isn't something I shouldn't be visiting. It would be great to see improvement in this area and would be the deciding factor for me to stick with this app and add more accountability partner.
On a side note, a small bug that happens occasionally in the browser is when the page switcher is opened, sometimes the first page dot (at the bottom) is highlighted when it should be the last page causing me to swipe the wrong direction. Not a major problem, but enough of an inconvenience to make a note.
I think this app is going in the right direction quickly and can't wait for future updates.
Some glitches but works well
Pros: the accountability partner is a must and it’s what makes the app desirable. Fast browser.
Cons: can’t open as default when clicked on a link in other apps, must use the “share” function; unable to type in the URL box to search in google when the search term is in a different language (Chinese)
Beats Covenant Eyes!
Ever since Covenant eyes broke their service with the IOS VPN ‘upgrade’, I’ve been looking for an alternative that works well. I’ve found it now. The internet is fast again, I still have the accountability I desire, and I’m happy to be with a company that values data privacy and security. Thank you Lion!
