So far so good The VPN experience is so awesome. This client does just as expected. Had to switch to a home vpn after Niantic banned the VPN I was paying for, and I couldn't be happier. Able to access my home network media using Plex, shared folders, as well as all the other benefits using someone else's restricted wifi... can use ports that would otherwise be blocked, and people cannot see network packets in the clear.
Used to work well, now frequently disconnects Completely unreliable. If you use this app be prepared to keep an eye on the icon in the status bar. If it disappears (and it does frequently now) you will not be protected by your VPN. I will be looking for an alternative since this app is no longer reliable.
Actually 3.5 Stars I would give it more stars, but the app keeps disconnecting from my VPN. It states that it will stay connected during the time the phone is on standby but it keeps disconnecting. Fix this issue for more stars. I know its not the VPN, I have no issues on my tablet, PC, or laptop using the VPN client from the service I pay for. This one has some issues.
Needs gui settings Needs a way to automatically list all my ovpn files via the gui and quick way to change protocol (tcp, udp) and port numbers. I have to use this app because the PIA app has problems connecting to the PIA servers through some wifi access points, while the openvpn app works.
Works Fine does what it says to do but drain a lot of battery. FYI It doesn't work standalone you need to install an App that pool and import a list of working servers profile. Works fine but not all the servers connection are reliable but that is not quilt of this App. The only lack is a better notification when the connection Drops or is not working. Keep the good work.
Functions but crap interface As a long term developer I see this as extermely "bare bones". It doesn't let you have multiple ovpn files, does not remember the path you last imported from, can't be setup to connect automatically ... which are basic necessities. ** MAJOR FLAW doesn't differential between LAN and WAN so local network traffic goes throught the VPN (and usually can't). Must disable to use a local net file. I'd be embarrassed to put my name on it.
