  • Cant believe I spent money on this

    By Calarcon000
    I would give zero stars if possible not once was I able to get this browser to work tried it at home nothing just got to 5% tried it at a public wifi. Same thing. Save your money.
  • Extremely slow

    Un- usable
  • Best Tor browser for iphone

    By Unique-Horn Unicorn
    Well worth the price. This is the best thing going. I used the other Tor Onion browser before, but after I paid for the ad-free version they changed it to a subscription service and raised the price! So I tried Red Onion out and it's so much better. It doesn't have the bugs that other one did. It's faster and more user-friendly.
  • IOS and phone service

    By Chiefcheeba
    Can’t use the app anymore thanks to new iOS updates and phone service providers. Use to be a great app someone should update it so it’ll work again. Useless now.
  • Great

    By Shoepuffigton
    This is a great browser for people who don't know too much about tech. It's a little slower but still it's nice. If you know about tech then it's honestly better to hide your own IP address and such using a program for google.
  • Was great, now is broken

    I loved this app. Used it for years. Then came the 1-2 punch of iOS 11 and T-Mobile. No IPv6 support in Red Onion, even if you understand torrc enough to configure it yourself. I'm guessing that the author hasn’t integrated the latest TOR into this app in a couple of years. So, no joy if using a t-mobile iPad or using WiFi to a T-Mobile hotspot phone. —- Old review —- So glad I found this app. I started off with a competing iPad TOR product. It was buggy as heck, had very poor compatibility, and the author talked about all the features that were coming in "the fall", like tabbed browsing. Fall came and went, then winter, spring, and summer. Then 2014, 2015, 2026, and 2017. So, I looked for a new TOR product, and amid the complaints that one or another was fake, I found this one. All the features that the other browser had been promising for over a year, and way less bugs. Pages load faster and look better. It's just an improvement in every way. Best thing, it uses a ton less bandwidth than my old browser. I never knew that the other app had a "bandwidth sucking" bug until I started using this one. Doesn't burn through the mobile plan in the field, and it's so much more responsive than the other browser when on WiFi.
