The Windscripe Android App works great, but the battery usage needs optimized. 14 hours on battery with 38% battery life left. Windscribe has used up a massive 7% of that battery and I never once opened the app or turned it on. Please optimize the battery life and I'll update my rating to 5 stars. Edit: Developers responded within 24 hours and immediately began working on battery optimizations. Much better now! Thanks for being so fast and responsive to feedback! Updated to 5 stars as promised. :)
No logging! Been using this since beta, and I'm pretty satisfied. I wish there were a few more countries in each region for free users and more languages as well, such as one per continent. Also, I dislike that the icon for Windscribe on Android Oreo looks horrendous in the white circle...
Works as it should, I've been a pro subscriber for over a year and have been very impressed with the products and support I've received. They even went out of there way to help me with a problematic firewall. I do wish the app gave you more control, like what apps send data through the vpn. I keep Strongswan on my phone just for this purpose.
Paid user who's used the app from beta to now. VPN itself is great, but the app is very basic and the worst thing is it eats the battery extremely quickly. Just today, 14 hours on battery, 15% remaining, 42% of that 85% used up by Windscribe app. That basically means the app uses up half of my battery from full charge to no charge. Needs fixing asap. UPDATE: since the update on 22 November it seems the battery drain issues are resolved. Well done guys! It's still the app that uses the most battery on my phone though. Perhaps this is just expected from VPN apps. This will be a 5 star app with additional features from the desktop app, like kill switch.
This was great when I first got it but the last few times Ive tried to use it everytime I try to open a website it tells me im not online which isnt true because it works just fine without the vpn on. Dont know whats up with it but its worth nothing to me if i can do anything!
I have a free 50GB account, I use Windscribe on my PC and I just started using it on my mobile phone. Sometimes connection is slow but it's fine.
Battery optimization, misc bug fixes
