  • The best one of all!

    By Kelr0k
    Top-Notch! And Red is the most advanced of all the ones that try to do this thing! Wow!
  • Please make it fit the screens of the newer phone

    By Labhustle
    Please, your app was successful in its own way and would have been quadruple the intake from sales if more care and updates came. It’s a shame, the only one I like.
  • It stays at 5%

    By joe_john3
    It never loads past that. I tried going through a different tor, hard restart, everything I know to do and still it never gets past 5% even after waiting close to an hour
  • Good app ‘worth the purchase ‘

    By Kellzconn
    Didn’t expect it to be this good when i first saw it on the app store...but-am glad I purchase it and impressed.
  • Great app. Great developer.

    By Bookfad
    This app is great and superior to safari in almost every way. I had a problem where a feature wouldn’t work, but I emailed the developer and he responded THE SAME DAY with a solution. I’d highly recommend this app.
  • Anonymous?

    By Shell56
    I don’t believe it is anonymous. When I use it, white pin in a day I will get porn spam friend requests in Fakebook. I have a cloaking blanket for sale also, it must work because I said it does.
  • Good stuff

    By Ethnomethodology

    By Cryptohaze
