    Very compact and easy to use. Has built in ad blocking. What more could you want? Oh and you don't have to bolster it to your Mac to get privacy. The only problem I have is you have to leave the app open in the background for it to work, which can drain your battery. It also has this annoying little glitch in which it will sometimes tell you the app will close in ~30 seconds from lack of use. I think this is OS related though (thanks Tim Cook for constantly breaking stuff I like), restarting your iPhone usually fixes it. P.S. I'm not sure why you renamed this app (used to be called OnionVPN) but it caused me a lot of confusion in finding the latest version. Just a heads up for your future apps.

    It works awesome. It changes my IP address and lets me access .onion sites. Free version is not as good because it gives you limited vpn.
  • Seems to work

    It was easy to start and very easy to pay for the upgrade, but I had trouble with the app from the start. Trouble that buying the pro upgrade promised to fix. I keep seeing the pop up prompting me to reopen the app while I'm trying to stream a show on another app. I see the vpn is running but it's telling me it will shut off if the app isn't reopened. It's driving me a little crazy. Wish I hadn't paid the, for the pro upgrade now.
  • What's with the name change?

    Privacy concern in a privacy-protecting app??! I downloaded this update and now the app title is PacketSniffer. This is concerning! I'm vaguely familiar with them and what they do, enough so that I searched for the term. Here's what one site said: "A packet sniffer is not just a hacker's tool. It can be used for network troubleshooting and other useful purposes." The site gives an example of a nefarious use: "If Ms. Wise on Computer A sends an email to Mr. Geek on Computer B, software set up on Computer D could passively capture their communication packets without either Ms. Wise or Mr. Geek knowing." I'm deleting the app until there's an update and the developer confirms there is no funny stuff going on.
  • Works well for casual users

    You can use this to visit .onion hidden services even in safari. This app establishes a vpn connection on your device which routes requests through a Privoxy Tor Bridge. So your traffic really is sent over Tor. It may be intercepted between the vpn connection and Tor, however. Recently established/moved (~< 4 hours) hidden services will not work, though, implying some kind of caching mechanism (defeating part of Tor's fundamental operation). Additionally, fthnmr's concerns are valid as to anonymity.
  • 100% functional

    Can access .onion links perfectly. I wouldn't recommend it for anonymity (as with any VPN) though due to the smaller userbase browsing from mobile, and also considering background apps & services transmitting data over the networks. Perhaps a browser user-agent and device spoofer can help with that. Or maybe my perceived concept on how you could be traced back from those data is wrong.
