Needs some serious revamping
Let me start by saying that I really appreciate the heart behind X3 church. Practical accountability in this area is greatly needed.
That being said, the mobile version of this app is very poorly designed. It runs slow, crashes often, does not properly format mobile web pages, and practically has no interconnection with basic iOS apps (like mail). The quality of a product you're offering is hugely important for your testimony and retaining the people you are trying to help, especially when they are paying for that product. I highly suggest restructuring the iOS and other mobile versions of this app to work as a background app that scans any web-based activity in any other browser or app (like the PC version). Otherwise, at least revamp the browser to be on par with industry standards and that interconnects well with the respective mobile operating system. Be the best witness you can be and give your customers what they paid for by having a product that is truly competitive against regular browsers. It can be done. You just need the right amount of time, effort, and people designing the app.
I pray that God continues to use this ministry for much more good in combating the disgusting world of porn, and most importantly by reminding others of the glorious hope that is in Jesus Christ.
Great idea on paper but...
This browser is painfully out of date. Especially when you compare it to that of chrome, mercury, or even dolphin. If it's not that lack of features, it's the lack of screen. There's no full screen mode, and if you aren't handing over a monthly fee you get a web banner reminding you that they have a "premium service." it's a shame it's a shame this can't just run in the background and permit you to use a browser of choice.
Also it should be mentioned since Safari is disabled, you can forget opening links from emails and messaging without practically having to bookmark the site.
How about the ability to have a different home page? That would be nice. For at one point paid app the feature level is lack luster to say the least. Is there perhaps a concentration camp you'd rather have us at since you are holding us all hostage with these fees and lack of features?
I think I will look for alternatives, maybe just a content feature with an accountablity partner with a password.
Heard about this software from the Bad Christian podcast and was really excited to try it out.
However I quickly realized, this needs to be monitoring software, NOT a web browser. This genius idea would work infinitely better if it simply sent your browsing reports to your accountability partners on whatever browser you typically use. It makes you lock Safari before using, but what if I just wanted to unlock safari again? Even if I had my friend make the passcode, what if I just download another web browser? You can't even open links or download pictures in the browser. Please, do this program a favor and revamp the concept as a monitoring software. THAT would be an app worth downloading. Until then, I'd wait on X3 Watch.
