    Doesn’t work, save your money
  • Looks poor on iPad Pro 12"

    By UkSamo
    Would recommend for the large iPad Pro, the app defaults to the huge smaller iPad keyboard, the interface looks big and blocky. Please optimise your app for modern iOS devices.
  • A five star app

    Does what it says on the tin, downside is loading time can be lengthy but can live with that.
  • Great App

    By Merseachris
    This browser took a few minutes to get used to as it is a little different to my usual browser but once that was out of the way its great with all the functions I need. Not encountered any negative points so far.
  • Amazing

    I just love this app gets you through the restrictions and protects anyone from seeing where you're what's your IP etc 👍🏽
