really great app been my number oen for a year. but I'm having trouble with the last update. every time I open the app it jumps out and opens google play store! and that's bad considering the fact that google play store is filtered in my region. so basically I can't open my hss and connect! sometimes(two out of ten) it gets slow and I have a few seconds to select a server and push connect and then it jumps out again but connecta in the background. tnx.

Pure incompetence. ui has been buggy as hell for many years. you push the connect button, nothing happens, not even an animation, then after half a minute it starts trying to connect; and even if by chance it connects, the animation keeps going then it says "disconnecting" without actually disconnecting; so you can not click on disconnect, because it is not there! And as cherry on top, when you are using another better vpn app, this app starts by itself and disconnects the other apps connection

Last version updated, it's still slow like a dead app, the initial intro screen just freezes like 2-3 minutes with no response. Then the same thing in main screen I tap several times on that power shape button but it just doesn't do anything. This is really really awful. They are rubbing from people this way. I have the premium account. Update: Now it's signed out and tapping on sign in button doesn't work! ! I've paid premium and forced to watch ads for using it.
