Great overall VPN which connects lightening fast! So why 4 stars? ½ star for each of the followings: 1. It automatically starts after boot and doesn't have the setting to disable it (unlike the Windows version). 2. Doesn't have a notification toggle for fast switching it on/off. I think this should become a standard feature among Android VPN apps.

I live in IRAN where there's a strict wide range web filtering and every day it's turning to be more difficult to find a good VPN to use internet freely. Lantern has been a really good app to go around the filters and no reduce in internet speed but every now and then it connects to IRAN's servers which is no use at all and there's no way to change the server. After a few days it might change and be usable again but meanwhile we have to look for other VPNs.

I have some cool ideas for improving performance of this application, 1. Program the locations on the support server to access them, they can't be accessed without vpn in some countries 2. Fix microphone problem and turning to call mode in android system it's annoying cause some users may listen to music or do something at the time 3. Improve the speed fo getting connected and connection. 4. Fix its DNS settings to global. I have written this review and i hope i get answer on the app.
