I downloaded this app so I can do my inservices (work assignments). The app has a lightning volt on it which you have to push in order to watch videos, but ever since I had this app I have had to redo each assignment 4 or 5 times, due to the lightning volt turning itself off. With my assignments I am not allowed to pick up where I left off, I have to start over several times because of this app. This app truly, truly sucks. Get it right photon.
Most likely to work I have spent much time looking for a flash browser for my mobile device. Firefox, dolphin browser, and most others did not work. ONLY this one worked. My one issue is that the flash player must be turned on before every use. I would give it 3 stars but it destroys the competition. For android users with versions higher than 5 and uncommon phone type users who can't get adobe in some weird way, you get what you get. Hey, at least it works.
Photon Browser Excellent app. Does what I want - hassle free. (Edit) a year later... STILL hassle free and working as intended. And whilst I am updating this comment, I will chuck this info your way... A few people are moaning about the switching between mouse modes... I use an android phone with an otg adapter, to a mini USB hub. Plug in a mouse and keyboard, and your phone becomes a minicomputer... With a touchscreen display... Only downside is that you cannot charge your phone at the same time....
Messed up my browsing experience If I'm using chrome I should be on chrome. Don't force me jump to this browser every time something is clicked. Only had it for like 3/4 hours and disappointed already. Deleting it if this issue gets fixed might come back otherwise won't waste my time with it
Hijacks searches in other apps I downloaded Photon so I could watch videos my Droid didn't support. I didn't download it so that it could hijack and dominate other apps. If I search something in Chrome, Photon opens it up in it's browser, and I found no way on my phone to alleviate that, which is why I'm deleting Photon after this review. That's annoying to say the least. Add to that there's no way to forward articles or links besides copy and paste. It's not worth keeping, even for free.
I liked this app pretty good until yesterday when it took away the option to use the flash player, now you have to upgrade to connect the flash player which is $9.99. This app is free and the flash player should be too, I kept trying thinking it was my device but its the app. Nothing more to say.
