Little to no polish For being an app consisting of nothing but a search field, this app performs surprisingly bad. There is no clear/reset button to clear the search field. Search results open in your browser not in the app. You can't choose which search provider you use bt default from inside the app. There is no feedback when a search query returns no results; just an empty page. Thr welcome wizard includes a non-clickable Done button. Interface uses non-standard fonts that don't go with the rest of Android's look and feel.
I love it..... BUT it doesn't allow me to switch search engines. Its STUCK on Google, which I really hate! I don't dislike Google, but I don't like the search results it gives me. I starting using DuckDuckGo & Ixquick almost 2 years ago, and that's what I'm used to I guess!! These companies, dedicated to protecting us, are soooo awesome!! Last I read too, Disconnect is open source, although I heard they were bought by a company that is not, and is in with advertisement companies. Don't quote me though - research it.
4 Paranoids. :-P It stops meta data collection upto a gd extent like search queries esp. Google. BT many a times proxy builders have to provide these when law enforcement is involved. Privacy not Anonymity. But anyways nice app. Thanxx Disconnect guyzzz..
Uncomfortable and ineffective The search results are really poor (in some cases, non-existent) and the page on which they are listed doesn't show properly on my LG Optimus 3 phone. Also, when I try to type something into the Disconnect widget, a small pop up window appears at the center of my screen with the true search engine (the widget itself is just a decoy?) and my keypad covers it completely, so I can not see whatever I'm writing. Uninstalling now.
I just got this app so I haven't used it very long but it looks like it does the trick. I got this app so web sites I visit don't track me. Most web sites use the info they get for marketing, but some of them could be stealing important information. Better safe than sorry.
OK app At first I really liked this app, especially as an extension for Chrome. However, if you use Windows 8, Disconnect Search blocks many of the downloaded desktop apps and charms that are useful with Win8. After removing Disconnect, everything worked fine again. If this issue is fixed, I would rate this app higher.
Now occasionally and politely ask for a one-time donation. This is how we pay for development and servers.
Tapping the widget no longer sometimes opens both widget and app.
