Great, but hardly works on wifi I've enjoyed this app by day for the nice feed of stories, but when I want to use it as a browser over Wi-Fi at home, it just does not work or even load any search results 90% of the time. It just hangs like there's no signal. If I turn off Wi-Fi, it works flawlessly. I want this to be my browser..
This app is crap! It has nothing to do with Tor. It doesn't function like Tor, as Tor Browser is one of the fastest browsers around. I went to a site and tried to download a simple Anime. And I couldn't get the screen to enlarge, without it trying to load a toatle dif page.
Works but why app? Why is it necessary? I get it IF it was an option but the fact is it's mandatory to get full search functions (images, maps) on Android. It's as if they leave these functions out of the Web app & browser integration to extort downloads. Oh, and wtf is up with no way to close it?!
Dark Theme, Font Controls, Reading Mode. Bring the Stories Feed to DDG.gg Where is the dark theme & font controls? A read 📖 mode for when reading stories would be a very nice feature. Blinding white is no good. Also, why not bring the stories feed & subscriptions feature to the DDG web interface. I would love that.
It's a good start I like the anonymity it provides. However the search box is a little squirrelly. Sometimes when I am typing, I discover nothing is appearing in the dialogue box. Other times I get 4 or 5 letters typed out, but it just freezes up. I have to tap the dialogue box to wake it up. Could be far better.
Great browser, useful tools - BUT The constant barrage of pop-up advertising is bloody annoying. This is a new thing for DDG and entirely unwelcome. 3 stars for the irritation.
- bug fixes
- ability to save URLs (in addition to searches) to favorites
