User reviews affect conversion to installs and app rating. Featured and helpful reviews are the first to be noticed by users and in case of no response can affect download rate. This is why it is highly recommended to reply to them.
So I’m not the type of person to review much unless I’m buying it but I def have to for this app. I love it. I downloaded 7 or 8 hotspot apps that were rated good but also had good ratings. However every single app (except for this one) required a membership which I did NOT want to pay for. Although this app has a premium offer as well, it is not required like many of the other apps which was a huge necessity for me. I was a little skeptical at first when I used it but it actually works seamlessly, even without the membership! There is all sorts of country’s to chose from and it doesn’t slow you down at all. I’m happy to recommend this to anyone. And if you do subscribe to the premium you will get even faster speeds and all sorts of other features. Definitely the best hotspot app. Highly recommended!
The VPN worked fine at home in the US, but not while I actually needed it. In Shanghai and Qingdao I needed to use the VPN for accessing any websites, translator apps, etc. that I could normally from home. It took me at least 10 minutes to get it to work every time, closing and restarting the app, trying from different servers *if* it connected, and often being told I had no internet (with three full WiFi bars) or that they were diagnosing problems & to try again later... which still didn’t work after 24 hours. Overall I was lucky if it even worked at all, let alone for longer than 5 minutes. It would often drop me from my WiFi as it “connected”, repeatedly, and caused me to go back through the whole process mentioned above every five minutes (or less!) I had success with this VPN only twice for 30 minutes; but it was hell to get it there. To think I payed $13 for this kind of hassle. What a waste.
When it works this VPN barely hits my performance and I trust their payment model enough to believe they aren’t selling my data. That being said, the VPN itself is so unstable I wonder how much security I’m actually gaining. Two issues here: 1) The VPN randomly drops connection when online, and though it resets, I am obviously losing VPN status which I assume allows the sites I’m visiting to log my IP and activity while it’s down. 2) It’s hard to turn off. There are obviously circumstances where a VPN isn’t needed or desired, especially a free one. However, when I try to turn it off, this VPN often switches back on by itself and I cannot get it to remain off. In fact this is my second download. I deleted it the first time to see if that would fix the issue. However I see that I’m not the only one having that issue. Pro tip: don’t rely on this if you have something truly sensitive flowing over your traffic.
It’s trash now. It used to be simple, reliable, and more importantly versatile (able to be used everywhere) with stable connection. Now they added a fancy button that doesn’t turn off when you want it to. Now it’s connection randomly drops. Now I cant even use it at school anymore. It works for a little bit then it does this annoying thing where it says its connected, but when I go on any app it “freezes” Like there’s a little clock thing in the middle of the button and it works when on the app but it clearly stops when you go off of it. On top of that, it has these fits where it won’t connect at all. Customer Support is a no as well. I understand having special features for premium version but denying people customer service for the app as a whole and not just premium is a scummy thing to do. The app is trash now. The ONLY reason I keep this app is cause it’s pretty much the only one that semi-works. As soon as I find a better one you better believe this is getting deleted.
