It is really good about downloading movies online unlike a lot of the other programs on the App Store.

Simply this has been the best browser I’ve use in a long time. Team Aloha you rock.

Adding a star for Aloha adding dark mode. Aloha is hard pushing their VPN services. I do not want to use them as I use a different VPN. There is no way to remove the VPN add, or the VPN toggle button on the search bar. Otherwise, it’s a very promising browser. Still using Brave Browser as my default as it checks off more of the boxes for me. Update: Dark Mode added. “But with no dark mode, I will not use it.”
Not a TOR Browser even though advertised as one
by Jay Viewer on 2021/01/11 23:46
When trying to reach a TOR aka onion site a screen pops up that says Tor site detected and does not give any option on how to open it. If it is just a VPN say that don’t advertise it at a TOR app.
Worthless

Waists 30 minutes downloading the video but doesn’t download audio! This app is trash
Best browser ever
by mathue SF on 2021/01/10 17:34
This by far is the best browser out there. Four stars because it’s impossible to set a search engine to default to.
Hmmm
by TheMostHated420 on 2021/01/09 14:36
There’s a bug on this app when go to google to search a location and when I click on the phone number to call or even the directions for the map it wont do anything when I click on it 😔
Awesome app
by lololonla on 2021/01/08 15:58
I think it is the best free browser with built in features which make downloading easy especially for iphone users. Thumbs up!
DarkMode?
by ShahriarAkash on 2021/01/07 23:48
Can we get the darkmode option already? Please? It’s 99.99% closer to the best of all

Fake Button?
by Murdock311 on 2021/01/03 15:19
Has a home button, but no setting to set a site. Kinda sad that you have to type in your homepage every single time. This was something even IE 4 could do.
Great app

Amazing web browser
Great Browser.... but
by Azgw on 2020/12/31 00:26
The latest version seems to have introduced a bug where a private tab jumps to the normal tab group. I see this repeatedly where I have a private tab open then spawn many tabs off of it with Open in background tab. Once several have opened the private tab I’m on will get pushed over to the normal tabs space, then when switching back to private I see the tab there too.
Best App So Far!!
by Jwg1741 on 2020/12/30 15:35
Other than the few crashes that the app has done, this is by far the best app for Video Downloading. And also is very convenient to have a built-in VPN as well. I’d definitely recommend this app to everyone!
Best browser

add a dark mode
by spacey gg on 2020/12/29 22:07
i give the app 4 stars because it’s definitely better than any other mobile browser i’ve used, however, it is lacking a dark mode option which every other mobile vpn has. my only request is that you make a dark mode version of aloha, thank you.
AWESOME #1 grade A+app Best of the best

Simple to use, great privacy options
by Tosevite on 2020/12/28 18:16
This is an excellent overall browser- super simple, intuitive, and fast. Offers many powerful options to set your privacy presences and is very upfront with them: all options are explained in plain language. Never experienced glitches or malfunctions. Love using it on my iPad, would love to have a desktop version. Kudos to the developers, you rock!
Why did the tor option stop working?
by doujinvisuals on 2020/12/28 09:33
It stopped working 4 months ago but I’ve been patient and hoping it’d be fixed by now but that obviously hasn’t happened

Hello, I always use this program and I am satisfied. But there is a problem, when we exit the program or the phone is locked, the songs do not play in a row and it shows a warning sign and we have to constantly play the songs manually from inside the program. The next song, this is a serious problem. Please follow thanks
Great
by Badbsiznwjs on 2020/12/22 19:28
I love this app, it especially is outstanding in watching videos. It keeps the Picture in Picture mode, while giving extra additional features, more than Safari can offer. I like the features where you can “lock” the orientation while watching videos— I love watching shows in my bed and love that the orientation will stay the same with this lock, so I can move around without a hassle. One thing to suggest is a dark mode, I have to switch back to Safari at night because I don’t want to much of an eye straight at night with the bright colors, but I’m certain that with such a great app they are working on this. I also do wish that we could add websites to the “News” that can fit our interest. For example, I’m interested about the news from soompi.com, and wish I could add that to the news stream.
Beats all other web browsers, even safari!

by vidal_avila on 2020/12/21 06:26
I have no problems with Safari but decided to give this a try for two mains reasons, one is the ‘built in security’, I’m not taking that too seriously but I like that it’s at least going for that angle with the VPN and Adblocker being standard. The other reason was to download files directly to my phone/iCloud. This is great for saving video clips. So far have been happy with the UI and browsing.

by phantomgirl832 on 2020/12/18 18:57
I've been using this app for a few years now, and I think I can firmly say that deserves the high ratings that it has. TL;DR: Give it a try because it's worth your time. LR: Like things that I like about this app are: - It's MOSTLY Free (what I mean by this is that they do have premium option, honestly I don't need it. The free functions parts of the app are enough for me. - It has customizable privacy settings (like you can enable Face ID and passwords for applications, downloads, or for incognito tabs) - Video play functions idek the term for this (But whenever you watch a video using this app, it allows you to...) • swipe left to right to scroll through the vid, •(left side of screen) swipe up/down to change the brightness. •(right side of screen) swipe up/down to change volume. - Blocks ads ( NOT ALL but I think it does block some ads)

by آتريكس on 2020/12/17 20:18
Because I live in Iran and we are deprived of many facilities and services due to oppressive sanctions, we desperately need a professional filter breaker and downloader. Out of perhaps a hundred programs, only aloha met our needs. I am very satisfied with what I have in common.
Cannot open a new tab
by nutella_98 on 2020/12/17 17:13
I use Aloha in private mode. However it happens many times that I close the browser, kill it from the bg and turn off my iPad (sleep). Then later I want to use Aloha again, and as soon as the app opens it flashes the dark private mode window (as it was last time), but then immediately switches to the light, normal window. At that point when I tap the small "one" icon (1) at the top right, that indicates the number if open tabs, it doesn't work. It doesn't register any taps and so I no longer able to open a new tab. I have to shut down the app and open it again, and then I am able to switch back to private mode. Quite irritating since this happens a lot. iOS 13.4.1 iPad 6
Love that i can download videos
by Ali manafi on 2020/12/17 16:09
This is the best app to dl any videos on an ios device, easy to use, fast, i just wish it would continue to dl when i minimize the app in the background more and not dc it after a few mins. Or when i switch from lte to wifi or the opposite it wouldn’t stop the dl or pause amd not be able to resume those downloads.

by Rktkam on 2020/12/12 15:35
I was looking for a browser app and I had a checklist of what I wanted. This app checks all but one. Can you please make the bookmarks that are bookmarked in the private tabs only to be seen in the private tabs and the non private bookmarks to be seen in the non private bookmarks? To me, it makes no sense to bookmark something private and then it can be seen in the non private tabs. Other than that, this is a good browser app, but please make this one fix :)

i’ve loved this app for a while now i even bought the premium but i was wondering if you guys are going to join the wave and make a dark mode?
Great app, needs update
by R Ghosh on 2020/12/08 22:36
Great app for a browser and to download and view VR videos. I just switched from iPhone 8 to iPhone 12 mini and now the VR viewer doesn’t display correctly. I think the pixels aren’t scaled correctly anymore so now everything appears smaller (zoomed out). So while it takes advantage of the increased pixel density it comes at the cost of objects in the video appearing further away or smaller than they should. This would be a five star review if the fixed this (also would be nice to see that the VR viewer correctly identifies your phone, I can’t see anyway to check this).
Great but no background play is IOS
by the awsome inkling on 2020/12/08 21:07
Good vpn. Great overall browser. It claims to play video in the background and you assume because it’s a browser that it’s through the browser, but on IOS it does not play YouTube videos trough the browser. It would be nice to know how it does that in the background. Already paid for a year of VPN pro as it’s awesome but disappointed on the other side. Update: iOS 14 plays in background if you maximize and go to main screen. Turn screen off and press play on locked screen. On YouTube videos if you play a video you have to press play after choosing your video. If you pay you will skip add. If not then play add. Double clicking is a pain.

Very good browser. Love the built-in vpn and Adblock. The only one complaint I have is that a “find on page” feature needs to be added. It would be very useful! Other than that, overall a pretty amazing app.
Works great!
by Sebaatian k p on 2020/12/03 18:59
If you watch a video on a website, you can do minimized (side view) mode and use other apps. But if you download that video, suddenly there’s no more option to watch in minimized view. If this app had that, it would be perfect! I wish that videos could still play while the screen is off.
Amazing
by Selby5716 on 2020/12/03 10:45

Browser is great to store movies on for a trip or downloading documents for work. I just wish they had implemented a way to video pop out on iOS 13+, because it’s a new native feature. Would be super useful for road trips and is just something that bugs me that’s not offered.

Useless
by nollychriss on 2020/11/19 05:52
Very useless vpn how can you make something which your self don’t use but expect us to use it and you get paid for it if you are using this vpn who ever made it will no that he need to do a lot of fixing it was better 2018,2019. But this year it so useless and am so disappointed I have always been a fan of this vpn can’t you see that the anonymous has gab from green to red can’t you see that proxy as gone from green to maybe. If I can give you a zero star I will do it cause now it useless and not working anymore if you can’t correct it just delete the vpn cause it feel like you are scamming people by let it stay here
Excellent Privacy, Lacking Features
by GuruAntarSingh on 2020/11/17 23:10
Overall, I love this browser. It’s relatively speedy for using a built in VPN and has everything needed for a general, safe, private web browsing experience. However, and perhaps this is just me but, there are a few features that I use heavily on other browsers and are absent on the iOS version of Aloha. I could not find a page translator feature anywhere and upon searching, could only find the feature on desktop and Android versions. Is there a way to remedy this or is it not offered? It would be nice to have a bookmarks export/import feature. When someone has a lot of bookmarks and want to switch browsers, they’d have to do it manually, one at a time as I did. Am I overlooking that feature? Again, this is a great browser and I’m not regretful of the switch. Please advise on t head cons. Thanks!
Total garbage

5 Stars Period
by Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrhdjd on 2018/07/26 10:12
This web browser is everything the UI is beautifully made(I mainly like it because it’s sleek) the VPN services seems pretty awesome(but that’s probably because I have little knowledge of VPN’s) and the video player is amazing I definitely like the browser more because of the video player, the fact that you can slide Horizontally to seek through the video and sliding Vertically(dependent on which side of the screen you swipe on)changes the brightness and there volume. This video player is the main reason why I love this browser. But I do ask that for when you are watching videos while using Bluetooth for audio that you don’t have to use the OSD(On Screen Display) lock to get the video player UI away but this only happens if I using a specific Bluetooth device so it’s no problem. As of now I honestly don’t have any other requests for this app(aside from optimization updates)but that’s bound to happen anyways, keep up the good work guys and I thank you for this fantastic browser!
Pretty Good. (Cost for Premium is Only a few Dollars)
by TimeSpaceGuy on 2020/06/04 09:35
I’ve used this Browser On/Off on my iPad Air for about 1yr.. I don’t have anything Negative to say about it.. It offers almost everything the Most Popular Browsers offer. It doesn’t offer as much Customization as the Big 3 Browsers.. However It offers enough Customization to satisfy most people. It’s MUCH Easier to download Web Pages and Videos using this compared the most popular browsers.. At least if your using an iPad. Often I hit the Download Button on a Video in Edge, Chrome, Safari or FireFox, 70% of the time I get “Downloads Not Available on this site on this Browser”.. That doesn’t happen with this Bowser.. The Browser offers a Free VPN and although that is Good, I prefer to use a VPN Bought from a company that makes it’s money from VPN/Security services. I recommend IPvanish, I’ve been using that on All my computing Devices (Over 8), for the past 6+ years, never had any problems with it.. Norton Security Deluxe also is Very Good. Don’t get me wrong you can use the built in VPN in Aloha Browser, I can’t really say anything against it.. It even offers a “Always On” Option letting you use the VPN, on your iPad even when you aren’t using the Browser... The Speed of this Browser seems as fast as any of them...
Terrible glitch!
by Lishae13 on 2019/05/26 23:41
I’ve been using this app for forever now, and it’s great, but there’s something you guys need to fix. So, whenever I’m watching a video file in the app full screen, and I pull down to see my notifications for other apps, or even when I pull up to my control center, or when I click off of the app for a slight second, or answer a message, the app cuts in half. So I have to click off of the video, and find where I was. Or, even when a screen notification pops up, saying that I need to update my device, an app won’t download, etc...this glitch still happens. It literally cuts the video in half, so that one part of the screen is pitch black, and the other is still playing. This is awfully annoying, and I’ve been waiting for u guys to fix it for at least three months, but still nothing. I would have given it five stars, but this glitch is terrible, and you guys need to acknowledge it! Please!
Sooo much potential
by | m4tr1x | on 2020/02/22 20:47
Love it . Feel like usability and security could be at the top . Still has rough edges , formatting, some lipstick in a few areas and more additional features that more mature browsers have , but if they stay on this path and churn stable , quality updates like they have been. It’s gonna be my goto hands down. Great job so far folks One feature request that is so needed these days with all the injection %#*^ going on would be a dev inspection tab , that at a minimum would “looove” a pattern match block pre-load. That is so needed for the iOS platform at the moment since iOS has no real way to firewall this stuff. iOS has to get this ability in some way whether it’s a string match , object or ip address. I think most folks that have seen all the recent jazz going on over with the current market lead browser would agree. Would be a grand slam, killin it keep it up!
Restore Purchase Malfunction
by BPa2c on 2019/11/06 09:50
Aloha browser has been my go to. With its ease of use and privacy focused functionality alone, I would recommend it to any of my friends. Also it’s in-app media player/downloader and file management system are both excellent and far surpass any other browser I’ve come across. However, I only give three stars because for some reason, annual subscription I’ve purchased on my iPad hasn't been transferable to my iPhone through restore purchases. I’m not sure we need to purchase them separately or not but from my experience usually the subscription could be shared with a multiple devices with the same iOS account. If this is a bug, I would like it fixed. But if it’s not I would like others to know before purchasing the subscription. Regardless, I thank the people who created this wonderful app for us.
Incredibly useful but fearful...
by ChadDuckster on 2018/09/21 12:59
It’s an amazing web browser and incredibly useful, especially in a closed off marketplace like iOS has. You’re able to download compatible mp4 videos, pictures saved to the browser files or your camera roll, free VPN for browsing and downloads, and even background video playback! It’s incredible and refreshing in an environment where all of these features have been gutted out of modern mobile browsers for money. This does make me worry though, because most apps that let you do THIS much don’t tend to last long without some sort of update removing or severely limiting the features that made the browser popular in the first place. For now though, it’s a faster browser and a safe bet. I think for 99 cents to get the ad free version, there’s no better browser on iOS.
Awesome browser!!
by Ziofinkel on 2018/05/29 17:50
It’s hard to find a browser that is everything you want it to be, feature loaded, private, etc. I’ve finally replaced this with safari or I should say its about a 80/20 split which says a great deal since I’ve been a safari user for 8+yrs but old habits die hard. However, I can see this completely and relatively quickly having me off safari for good. Really enjoy using it and like that even the general layout to the app icon just appears inconspicuous. I’m a pretty particular individual even so that my mind will allow me to dislike an app to a certain degree based on color scheme of the icon and home page (I know it’s crazy but I’m not the only one out there). With that being said from front end to back end I really enjoy using this!! Keep it up guys hope to continue to see good things from ya!!
Fastest, Safest, Best Browser Ever (this is indisputable)
by Slybootie on 2018/01/06 22:47
Aloha's team of IT gurus reimagined traditional Web browsing and transformed it into a contemporary masterpiece. For example, to compare the performance of Aloha to that of Safari (or Firefox, Chrome, Proton, Etc.) is as ridiculous as to compare Hawaii to Texas. Aloha, like Hawaii, is multidimensional, elegant, and exceeds expectation. Safari, like Texas, is flat, traditional and conservative, and searching for something takes far too long. When you try you won't wonder why Aloha is rated the #1 browser and continues to receive myriad 5-star reviews. Oh, and Aloha masks your IP address through a VPN, which helps to keep the important data on your phone safe from the NSA and Korean hackers when you're browsing ponr sites as well as those other socially deviant shenanigans you enjoy getting into online.
Pretty good...ads suddenly showing
by lanieann7 on 2020/08/24 14:20
I use this much more frequently than Safari. Works well, but wish it had the option to stick permanently and load every time in desktop mode. I have to click to change to it all the time. (On larger tablets, mobile view is strange and doesn’t let a user navigate easily on some websites.) This past week, for some reason, intrusive ads are where there used to be none. For example, all over eBay, which is where I spend significant time. Even toggled off whatever that safe ads option is in settings...nope, ads that take up the whole visible screen area and you have to scroll down to get to your selling information. Oddly, these ads are NOT showing in Safari. Now, i know from other posts that eBay has had these ads for a long time; it was one of the nice things about using Aloha - didn’t see the aggravating ads any were referencing in complaints.
Aloha, Indeed. Aloha heaven.
by Sebastian Alesander on 2020/06/05 06:02
I’ve been using Aloha ever since my old downloading browser would give me an hour’s worth of ads within downloading a few course videos. Aloha is the best, most reliable browser ever. I wish the software was for desktops and pcs, because of the nice layout, easy manoeuvring, iTunes file sharing friendly, and feature allowing save different types of content. I would love to see more security options, or at least more numbers in a four digit pin. I use it mainly to safety download my course videos for different subjects and transfer them to a database for future reference. But I’ve become accustomed to using Aloha instead of Safari. And I might use it more than Google Chrome if you come out with a brilliant desktop version. Thanks, and PLEASE keep designing applications. Carson
Scintillating, Seamless, Smooth.
by Eden Cross on 2020/09/27 19:09
It's no exaggeration, this app is the cream of the crop as far as I am concerned when it comes to being a one stop shop browser that can do any and all a user with reasonably standard expectations could never get from most any other browser that's out. I tried Google, chrome, safari, edge, duckduckgoo, Firefox, and opera. None of them have me a built in video Downloader that organizes files quickly and easily with a break down of my storage space left that loads faster than the built-in apple stuff you use in settings. It has an elite VPN you can use on this and every other app. The premium let's you use a trial if you want but it's so reasonably affordable that I went for the yearly option. And yeah there's alot more features than what I even said so far.
Aloha!! Fast, Secure and User Friendly
by mephixlizo on 2019/07/25 01:29
I rarely do reviews for apps no matter how good, but Aloha browser is one app I can’t just keep quiet about. The browser is super fast, VPN is highly secured and it makes downloading of files very easy. Cool music and video player, file management and sharing has been one of my major problems since I started using my Apple phone, but this app has helped me conquer that. Since I started using Aloha I have told so many of my friends about it and they all like it, who wouldn’t?. I see this browser beating the rest in no time. I still have one problem though, the team should add a search option, so users can search for a particular file using the files name. I think that’s the only setback for me so far. Thanks for this brilliant idea.
Dose what I wanted and more
by Dj N4D4 Xbar on 2020/10/15 03:28
Unlike most apps on the Apple store this app actually does what it says it supposed to do. I use this browser more than any other. I wish they had a desktop version. The only thing that I think is missing is a reader like MICROSOFT EDGE has but that’s cool I have to use third party readers for Firefox, google, and safari because I don’t like their readers. I would get this app even if it was just for the player. The player is the best for touch screen devices all controls are accessible on player. The downloading can sometimes download files I couldn’t get with my other downloaders and I didn’t have to give access to some widget or third party. That doesn’t seem right (Firefox/chrome)
new update is a no
by hphxmm on 2018/01/25 21:21
I think that there are many features of this browser I feel are efficient, and I feel it is simple but works great enough to be my go-to browser. However, the recent update to the tabs has made me feel less positive. When I open a new tab now, whether it is a regular, private, or background tab option, the tab is opened at the end of all the other one, instead of opening right next to the previous window. This makes navigation a lot more difficult than it was, and I don’t even have the option to move the tab back towards the previous one or resort my tabs. Small change, but it really made me feel that I would rather just use Safari for the easier navigation. I also think there could be more ways to customize settings to the user’s needs, as speed dial on the home page is crowded with dozens of news articles that I don’t need.
I used to love this app...
by ric6sic6 on 2019/08/10 08:49
Update:developer contacted me and said to enable ad-blocker and it should fix problem. Nope. I always have ad-blocker on. Even turn it off and turn it back on and still no change. Original review:When the app actually works right it’s everything I want in a browser/downloader. That was before it started buggin the f out. Now every time I try to use it, it force opens the App Store after a page loads. When I close the App Store and go back into the Aloha app, it’s no longer on the page I was viewing, but instead it’s several pages back. Sometimes this happens as much as 5-10 times back to back. It’s rather frustrating to even attempt to try to get a page to load. What’s the point in even trying to use this app when I’m constantly getting sent to the App Store? I’d love to give this app 5 stars, because when it works it is definitely 5 star worthy, but I just can’t do that until this problem is fixed.
Unreliable & slow
by Bill2go on 2018/02/10 01:17
Sometimes only half of a webpage will load, other times a page won’t load at all. One thing that’s consistent is that if a webpage does load, it loads very slowly. I base my observations on the fact that I have a reliable, high-speed connection and comparing this browser to others that load pages much faster and more reliable. Therefore, I’ve isolated the problem to this app. I was anxious to like this app, as I wanted a faster, more reliable browser than Safari, but unfortunately this app is no improvement. Instead of one star, I gave this app two stars, solely because I like having the ability to clear the history directly in the app, as opposed to having to go into my iPad’s “Settings”, like you’re required to do on Safari. Aloha has potential, hopefully the necessary improvements will be made, so I can come back to using it sometime in the future.
A Great Browser But Could Be Better, Needs Updating
by MistaBobobo on 2020/10/08 23:38
I’ve been using Aloha for about two years and I’m really happy with how it’s progressing, I use it alongside Safari. Although my biggest gripe is that even despite paying for the yearly subscription the premium servers don’t seem to be any faster and the ad block doesn’t always work and is hit or miss, two big things that need addressing. In addition the app has become unstable in recent updates and it doesn’t always load pages or videos/websites properly so I hope that gets patched. Overall the customization and ease of use is very handy and I love the file storing and video downloading system, if the app was faster than Safari and had more snappy, QoL updates I’d call it perfect. I hope to see it continue to improve.
Suggestion for Tab View
by JenniLuvsDisney on 2018/12/03 19:36
A feature that was implemented to the Safari browser that I think would work well in Aloha browser is the ability to search for tabs. In Safari’s tab view, when you swipe all the way up, you reveal a hidden search bar in which you can type in keywords to search through your existing tabs. This can prove very useful when you have a lot of existing tabs open. A search bar would make things much easier instead of having to scroll through every single tab to find what you want. Thank you for listening to the community! Without a doubt, still my favorite mobile browser by far!
ABSOLUTELY GREAT BROWSER Except For One Thing
by WheelsintheJIC on 2019/10/16 19:00
I absolutely LOVE the video player. I think the ability to control brightness and volume just by sliding your finger vertically is revolutionary. Also, it's so nice not to have to drag vertically to adjust the seeking speed and then horizontally to actually find the spot you want. If Apple was smart they'd do something similar to yours. I also love how you can download any video from any site. I have only one complaint and it's a kinda big one. I wish there was a way for me to back up my bookmarks and downloaded videos. In the past, my phone has gotten wiped and every time I loose all my bookmarks. All in all, I have yet to find another app with the same features and that's what makes it so great.
Overall good app, could use some improvements
by Best reviewer for you on 2018/12/07 07:58
The app is probably the best browser app on the AppStore right now. I absolutely love it. It does need some improvements though. For one thing, it would be great to be able to search for words on a page, similarly to how it is possible on Safari. It would also be nice to have a brightness/volume scrubber lock while in video, so you don’t accidentally change a setting when scrubbing through time. I’m not a huge fan of the subscription premium model, I would much rather pay a premium once and be done with it, as I do want to support them. You don’t really lose anything too major by not having premium, so if you are content on using the free version, it’s just as good.
Not so private
by Wildebeest boy on 2020/07/06 19:07
This app works really well for browsing and downloading videos. It also is very secure with either a passcode or a face ID. No one can see your photos or videos unless they have one of those. However what is not so private is that any files that are downloaded also go into the Files app on the iPhone. The files app has all files on your phone including the ones from Aloha and it is not private at all, anyone can access it if they pick up your phone. UPDATE. A developer responded with a simple fix. Go to Settings in the download section. Toggle to OFF to not allow saving Aloha files in the iphone Files app. Problem solved! Thanks for the hint!
Very good software, but the latest version of the problem is a lot!
by artert on 2017/09/25 10:58
Originally is very good software, this updated interface is very beautiful, very fit ios11, but more or less a lot of problems, the page load becomes very slow, language can not switch, there is the biggest problem, the software main interface in the upper left corner of the icon actually disappeared, I have been installed several times, and several times to restart, This problem can not be solved, the VPN switch does not exist, this browser and other browser what is the difference? Hope to update as soon as possible, fix bugs, thank you very much!
Almost Everything I Need in a Browser
by Bobby Nickleshmitt on 2020/03/30 11:47
I have been using Aloha for about 2 years now. The VPN aspect isn’t really what I go for, rather I wanted to pay for a browsing app instead of giving my data to the big wigs. I hated that chrome wouldn’t let me save certain images, but not this bad boy. It’s easy, comprehensive, and the downloading capabilities are far more flexible and accessible than any other app I have used for music, videos, gifs, and files such as pdfs and word. The only downside is that there’s no “find in page” for text, but if you like saving files and images easily, hate corporations having access to your personal information, and like having a simple streamlined browser, this one is for you.
Suspicious Behavior
by milkywayinhabitant on 2019/11/30 02:44
This browser has been great, but I have a concern about what’s going on under the hood. At certain times when I use it, when connected to WiFi (but not EVERY time..just occasionally), it will cause my phone to heat up significantly and will crash a few times. Eventually, it stops and works just fine. I’ve opted out of all usage/diagnostics sharing (everything you’re able to opt out of in the privacy section), so something else is going on here. I’d love to do a packet capture, but I’m unable to do this in my current situation. I’m using an XS Max running the latest version of iOS, so my phone is more than capable of running this browser, spec-wise. The developer seems to respond to a lot of reviews, so I would really appreciate an explanation for this.
Think we got a winner here.
by bigLONGfatSHLONG on 2019/08/17 11:47
Well after years of looking for that one browser. Download after download, install after install, followed soon aftrr with the delete botton hit. But this browser supprided me. Wonderful clean interface. It really does pop out at you. With the ability to change thrmes. All you Typical settings. It Does have a desktop/mobile agent as well. Just very tricky to find. You may want to put that in the main settings menu. But overall really clean really quick privecy, adblock... etc. I have never Said this before but my third-party browser for Aolha is now my main browser to replace safari. Great job Dev.
Great features, easy to use...
by Kevin Hamby on 2018/11/17 05:25
I love this App. It's simple to use download virtually everything that I've tried. My only suggestion would be to redesign the browser saw that each page is put In historical order. Also if you accidentally hit in the wrong button on the browser spam pop-ups opening in webpages, relentlessly. I don't know if the Aloha is getting revenue from this, but if you aren't do some filtering please. I like the options for resolution choices. One other suggestion would be to allow us to check whether we're downloading yet HEIC or mp4, as many of us they have either old or max that don't support the new codec yet. It is the easiest and quickest way to download from the web.
The App constantly evolves!!
by Seventh Nova on 2018/07/17 23:27
Wow! I gave feedback and asked about a scrolling feature when viewing photos, and then went beyond that and added a slide show feature along with the scrolling! Not only that, but the app has been updated to allow me to listen to audiobooks and music while I surf the net. If I want to listen to a downloaded guitar lesson while viewing chord charts on a website, that’s now possible! The app was already good but they really brought it up with the last update; the app just keeps evolving and getting better and better! No telling what they’ll do next, but they do take feedback to heart! =))
Desktop View and Zoom Out Needed
by TreyJohnsonMN on 2019/02/07 04:29
Much like other mobile internet browsers, Aloha has one major flaw. That is the inability to zoom out. When I am on a website, especially a project management site known as Jira, the screen is always far too zoomed in without the ability to zoom out like on a desktop browser. I also haven’t been able to find an option to either request the desktop website or completely prevent mobile the mobile view from coming up. I always use this browser on my iPad Pro, and some more desktop style features would be very welcomed. If you could get those two things specifically, then I would never use chrome or safari again. Thanks!
Best ever, some serious bugs
by parhamQ on 2019/04/21 02:32
This app is almost the perfect downloader app for iOS although there isn’t any rivals in this level, but I’ve come across this problem and suddenly Aloha can’t download anything so please do something about it. I reinstalled the app and it works now but my bookmarks and other stuff are gone, it doesn't matter to me but it's still a flaw and if possible it'd be perfect if you add the option to move the tabs and to save the order of the tabs that are sorted by the users preferences Ps: this new update on 19 april 2019 has some bugs that were actually fixed in the last version but they are back and this is really annoying so please fix it soon
Amazing Web Browser
by Add Comcast back on 2020/09/14 02:44
I’ve been using Aloha for just over a year and it is one of the best mobile browsers out there in my opinion. Enables you to download and store videos on the app, built in VPN and many other features. I do wish they had a cloud network that could be used with a laptop to transfer and keep files and they took away the option to use a custom photo on the home page that I wish they’d bring back. Seems like this app is constantly being updated which is nice. Very functional and fast browser and I would definitely recommend
Good Until It’s Not.
by RMVG03 on 2018/02/04 23:04
I’ve been using Aloha as a browser for a few years now. While their are things I love about it, I also have some issues with it. I tend to get half loaded pages or refreshing a page and then it being totally blank. No, it’s not my internet. If I open another browser it’ll work fine. I don’t know what’s causing this issue but it causes me to actually copy the website and open it either in safari or mozilla. This is, obviously, irritating. If these issues get fixed, my rating would certainly change. Edit: HOW COULD I FORGET ABOUT FREEZING?! I will have sometimes only ONE tab open and it will completely freeze, close the app, and still can’t do anything. This also needs to be fixed!!!
Overall pretty good, but some things to iron out
by SnwmB on 2018/08/20 03:07
First off I like the look of the app and the inclusion of a vpn is great. I do have a few issues though. -There is no way to reorder tabs, which, if you many open tabs like I do, can cause confusion. -Sometimes on start the app seems to shuffle tabs around, worsening the above problem. -I think the app should always open on normal tabs, period, because I have seen it open to private and begin loading before the vpn activates. -This could come from my wifi, not the app, but I have seen it start loading a private tab with vpn, and the vpn will shut off while it keeps loading without it; sometimes this comes with the vpn switching on and off repeatedly. Resetting the app fixes this for me. -I have had the problem others report where all tabs will only load part way down several times, but resetting the app fixes this for me too. I think that with a few added features, this would really be one of the best browser app out there, and I hope the developers read this and can tackle these problems in a future update. Thanks!
Awesome Browser (not just for VPN)
by Cmb25380 on 2019/06/22 00:43
I think I have downloaded every browser out there, and this is hands down the best. I don’t really have a use for the VPN feature, although it’s a good option to have I suppose. The entire layout is so user friendly- easy to navigate favorites, the news on the home page is customizable, videos are great (swipe up or down on the left for brightness, up or down on right for volume- very convenient). The only issue I had was the speed, it would get hung up on certain pages and take forever to load. The new update fixed that. Great app.
Great app! BUT ONE MORE THING
by jayanthony354 on 2017/12/06 22:54
I love this app it’s so easy to use and it’s great if you don’t have iTunes. I can’t complain too much but one thing that could get added on or fixed is when your playing music you can access the rest of the app it would be cool to listen to music and still stream the web or view the rest of the content on the app without stopping the song from playing👌🏼 and if you can put a shuffle mode for the music it would be AWESOME! Other than that the app is AMAZING. *********** Can you add playlists for the music so I can keep my hood rat music separated from my classical music. Please and thank you!
Worth the subscription
by Servbot6 on 2020/02/04 03:25
This browser is hands down one of the best I’ve used. The video player and how it’s seamlessly integrated into the ui is amazing. File sharing is great for moving over videos and pictures and the fact that I can do this with just about any file makes this even better. Like other reviews I usually use this app for music mainly, so I thought that maybe I could make a little request; maybe making a shortcut for downloads and the like so that we can listen to music with the press of just one button. That would be absolutely amazing.
SUGGESTIONS HERE
by Dk Danes on 2017/09/25 04:54
This is everything I need. One big thing I notice is that when youre playing a video, and you decide to lock the phone, the video keeps on playing in the background and you can hear the audio pretty much, even if its displaying the pin unlock page. Another one is the screenshot that iOS takes when exiting the app. There are many times that the webpage you were viewing was taken a screenshot and it shows briefly upon re-opening the app before the app displays the pin unlock page. The last one is when watching video. Pressing the view fullscreen mode button relaods the whole video and starts over (as opposed to just making the video display larger). Its like the inline webpage video player is entirely different from the full screen video player. Perhaps using iOS native player would help? Thanks guys for the amazing gift youve given the world. This app is pretty much the best of its class out there and I cant wait to see it become even better. Cheers!
BEST at what it does .
by THE Tyzzler on 2020/08/12 22:16
THE BEST at what it does. As stated by others, the functionality of the video player is beyond compare. The ability to drag finger horizontally to go forward/backwards in the video, and vertically to either increase/decrease volume or brighten/dim the screen (depending on the side of the screen the gesture is performed) is one specific that makes Aloha the best! Worth every penny. (After years of iPhone/App store interaction, this is the VERY FIRST review I've ever made, not for any incentivized reason such as a discount, but simply to be helpful in letting others know: this one is for real...this one is the best.
1 thing
by Joseph :D on 2018/02/27 17:53
Best mobile browser by far, but Say you press the home button while in a private tab; (I “have require passcode” on private tabs, not application) when you reopen the app, instead of it opening to the private tab for a brief second and then requiring your passcode, could you just reopen the app in a non private tab? If you do what I said above, you’re able to see the tab briefly before it requires a passcode, and also you can make out shapes and colors through the passcode screen, and even if you click cancel it’ll show your tab briefly. It’d be nice to have 0 worries about that. Other than that by far the best browser. Edit: also a “Find in Page” would be super helpful !
Hands down the best!!!!
by furmanborst on 2018/10/21 23:32
Hands down the best app in the “free apps” store. I’d go as far to claim It would exceed expectations if you paid $9.99....... Which also makes me worry a mandatory subscription will be included in an update sometime in the near future. Nevertheless, and has rekindled my enjoyment in perusing the “Utilities” app section which seem less and less innovative as of late...... Special appreciation to whoever pushed for the UI forward and backward scanning function. Best of any media player in & out of its class. Only request.....I’d love to see “Video Speed Control” functionality be added.
Wish I’d used this in high school
by V.143 on 2020/08/11 00:06
At my high school they used to track every site you visited while connected to the WiFi and block literally every good website. While a browser and vpn aren’t exactly all that useful to me right now, I’m sure they would’ve helped me a lot back then especially with the built in VPN. Recommend this for students on public WiFi networks that track everything you do. All in all a good app that I’m not keeping because I don’t really have a need for it. If you’re eyeing this app and have some free storage, I’d just say go for it!
Best browser out there, no exceptions.
by MasterDethronerX2 on 2018/04/14 17:31
Seriously, this thing is a literal Swiss Army knife of features. It has all the normal bells and whistles of a traditional mobile browser, but also includes built in VPN and Media/File manager. If you're looking for an alternative to the default Safari app, this is it. EDIT: After using it for about a week or two longer, I do notice a glaring fault in the video player. There is currently no way to set a video to repeat, and it will automatically switch to the next video in the list. Hopefully, this will be changed in a future update.
Continues to get worse
by Shad0wL0rd on 2018/12/14 07:31
The devs continue to remove capabilities at this point, without adding anything new or useful. Plenty of sites have protections built-in that prevent you from downloading from them. Furthermore, in the years that I have owned this app, this is now the THIRD time this app has deleted all of my saved content. That's right, all of it. The files section now shows nothing. Which is strange, considering the app takes up a substantial amount of space on my phone. So, essentially, all of my content is still on my phone, but the app has deleted all of the available links for me to get to it. The worst of both worlds. Wonderful. Absolutely incompetent. Tl;dr: Getting worse, sometimes deletes all your downloaded content for whatever reason, you'd be better off finding a different app.
Best browser there is and I will tell you why.

Not only because of privacy. But i have an iPad 12.9 and after updating to iOS every site on every single solitary browser except this one runs choppy in full screen. Chrome, puffin, Firefox, safari you name it. All of them would run HD choppy in full screen. They worked in window mode but when in full they would stutter and not work. This is an iOS 12 problem. Then I tried this browser and viola. Not a single stutter or delay. Just amazing. This is the best browser out there hands down.
Awesome Browser
by dmetzcher on 2017/12/29 20:39
This browser is great. I thought the VPN would slow data transfer a lot, as all VPNs tend to do, but I was pleasantly surprised to see that is not the case. In fact, I'm getting 12 Mbps down and 5 Mbps up with only 26ms latency. I've never gotten that kind of bandwidth from any other VPN. Ever. I would LOVE to make this my primary browser and give it five stars. The only feature it needs is the ability to fill passwords using a third-party app like 1Password. When I bring up the share sheet, I see that 1Password is not available to me. All major browsers support this, so I hope it's a priority. I'd really like to make this my primary browser.
Lots of bugs after premium purchase.
by Neelyfbaby on 2020/02/20 16:25
Loved the app before I bought premium VPN access now the app has been acting weird since I purchased premium about 4 days ago. When I use the browser to log into an account on any website it used to remember my information even if the app was working in the background. After premium purchase of I leave the app it logs me out. Turned on device wide VPN now even when I do not have the browser running it CONSTANTLY tries connecting to the VPN and the connections are faulty quite frequently now other apps are behaving erratically while on this “perpetual VPN” even when it’s switched off. My own device (iPhone X 256GB) doesn’t even show the WiFi indicator anymore since buying premium. I never had any of these issues before I PAID for premium.
Background play is working but is choppy
by The meliodas on 2020/01/08 04:13
The app used to not play videos in the background about an update ago. Now on this update it can, but it’s still buggy. If I play a video and exit the app to multitask SOMETIMES the player works. When it works and I return to Aloha, the player is stuck/frozen. For example, I play a 10 minute video, then I leave the app to multitask while listening to the audio for 5 minutes. I return to Aloha and see that my video isn’t at the 5 minute mark and is instead frozen in the beginning and I would have to refresh the page which is inconvenient because how am I supposed to know exactly where I left off?
Perfect as they come!
by valechammo on 2018/09/26 06:55
Being an Apple employee isn’t just because we have great benefits but also because I love the brand and my loyalty is key. But I have to admit this browser has everything there is and more. I never seen a better way to play videos and multitask at the same way. Love that you can have a passcode you know for those fun videos you don’t want your niece to find in your history haha. So the video streaming, privacy, downloads, tools are just a few things that make this probably the #1 browser so far. Two thumbs up!!
Cannot open a new tab
by nutella_98 on 2020/12/17 17:13
I use Aloha in private mode. However it happens many times that I close the browser, kill it from the bg and turn off my iPad (sleep). Then later I want to use Aloha again, and as soon as the app opens it flashes the dark private mode window (as it was last time), but then immediately switches to the light, normal window. At that point when I tap the small "one" icon (1) at the top right, that indicates the number if open tabs, it doesn't work. It doesn't register any taps and so I no longer able to open a new tab. I have to shut down the app and open it again, and then I am able to switch back to private mode. Quite irritating since this happens a lot. iOS 13.4.1 iPad 6
Dead On The Money!
by Fausto Ventura on 2019/05/20 04:31
Names Fausto, love this app. Gives me that sense of security and privacy I’ve been looking for. And it’s super user friendly and almost more appealing to simply browse. Awesome job guys, I look forward to go premium, but I couldn’t find an option to use apples integrated accounts and password manager under my settings or the app settings. It would be nice to create an account under Aloha too, so that I could back up things such as bookmarks, reading logs. As I’ve acquired so many articles to read that I would hate to lose them now. Patiently waiting for an update, thanks again guys.

Adding a star for Aloha adding dark mode. Aloha is hard pushing their VPN services. I do not want to use them as I use a different VPN. There is no way to remove the VPN add, or the VPN toggle button on the search bar. Otherwise, it’s a very promising browser. Still using Brave Browser as my default as it checks off more of the boxes for me. Update: Dark Mode added. “But with no dark mode, I will not use it.”
Not a TOR Browser even though advertised as one
by Jay Viewer on 2021/01/11 23:46
When trying to reach a TOR aka onion site a screen pops up that says Tor site detected and does not give any option on how to open it. If it is just a VPN say that don’t advertise it at a TOR app.

This by far is the best browser out there. Four stars because it’s impossible to set a search engine to default to.
Hmmm

There’s a bug on this app when go to google to search a location and when I click on the phone number to call or even the directions for the map it wont do anything when I click on it 😔
Awesome app
by lololonla on 2021/01/08 15:58
I think it is the best free browser with built in features which make downloading easy especially for iphone users. Thumbs up!

Fake Button?
by Murdock311 on 2021/01/03 15:19
Has a home button, but no setting to set a site. Kinda sad that you have to type in your homepage every single time. This was something even IE 4 could do.

Great Browser.... but
by Azgw on 2020/12/31 00:26
The latest version seems to have introduced a bug where a private tab jumps to the normal tab group. I see this repeatedly where I have a private tab open then spawn many tabs off of it with Open in background tab. Once several have opened the private tab I’m on will get pushed over to the normal tabs space, then when switching back to private I see the tab there too.
Best App So Far!!
by Jwg1741 on 2020/12/30 15:35
Other than the few crashes that the app has done, this is by far the best app for Video Downloading. And also is very convenient to have a built-in VPN as well. I’d definitely recommend this app to everyone!

add a dark mode
by spacey gg on 2020/12/29 22:07
i give the app 4 stars because it’s definitely better than any other mobile browser i’ve used, however, it is lacking a dark mode option which every other mobile vpn has. my only request is that you make a dark mode version of aloha, thank you.

Simple to use, great privacy options
by Tosevite on 2020/12/28 18:16
This is an excellent overall browser- super simple, intuitive, and fast. Offers many powerful options to set your privacy presences and is very upfront with them: all options are explained in plain language. Never experienced glitches or malfunctions. Love using it on my iPad, would love to have a desktop version. Kudos to the developers, you rock!
Why did the tor option stop working?

Hello, I always use this program and I am satisfied. But there is a problem, when we exit the program or the phone is locked, the songs do not play in a row and it shows a warning sign and we have to constantly play the songs manually from inside the program. The next song, this is a serious problem. Please follow thanks
Great
by Badbsiznwjs on 2020/12/22 19:28
I love this app, it especially is outstanding in watching videos. It keeps the Picture in Picture mode, while giving extra additional features, more than Safari can offer. I like the features where you can “lock” the orientation while watching videos— I love watching shows in my bed and love that the orientation will stay the same with this lock, so I can move around without a hassle. One thing to suggest is a dark mode, I have to switch back to Safari at night because I don’t want to much of an eye straight at night with the bright colors, but I’m certain that with such a great app they are working on this. I also do wish that we could add websites to the “News” that can fit our interest. For example, I’m interested about the news from soompi.com, and wish I could add that to the news stream.
Beats all other web browsers, even safari!

by vidal_avila on 2020/12/21 06:26
I have no problems with Safari but decided to give this a try for two mains reasons, one is the ‘built in security’, I’m not taking that too seriously but I like that it’s at least going for that angle with the VPN and Adblocker being standard. The other reason was to download files directly to my phone/iCloud. This is great for saving video clips. So far have been happy with the UI and browsing.

by phantomgirl832 on 2020/12/18 18:57
I've been using this app for a few years now, and I think I can firmly say that deserves the high ratings that it has. TL;DR: Give it a try because it's worth your time. LR: Like things that I like about this app are: - It's MOSTLY Free (what I mean by this is that they do have premium option, honestly I don't need it. The free functions parts of the app are enough for me. - It has customizable privacy settings (like you can enable Face ID and passwords for applications, downloads, or for incognito tabs) - Video play functions idek the term for this (But whenever you watch a video using this app, it allows you to...) • swipe left to right to scroll through the vid, •(left side of screen) swipe up/down to change the brightness. •(right side of screen) swipe up/down to change volume. - Blocks ads ( NOT ALL but I think it does block some ads)

Because I live in Iran and we are deprived of many facilities and services due to oppressive sanctions, we desperately need a professional filter breaker and downloader. Out of perhaps a hundred programs, only aloha met our needs. I am very satisfied with what I have in common.

This is the best app to dl any videos on an ios device, easy to use, fast, i just wish it would continue to dl when i minimize the app in the background more and not dc it after a few mins. Or when i switch from lte to wifi or the opposite it wouldn’t stop the dl or pause amd not be able to resume those downloads.

I was looking for a browser app and I had a checklist of what I wanted. This app checks all but one. Can you please make the bookmarks that are bookmarked in the private tabs only to be seen in the private tabs and the non private bookmarks to be seen in the non private bookmarks? To me, it makes no sense to bookmark something private and then it can be seen in the non private tabs. Other than that, this is a good browser app, but please make this one fix :)

Great app, needs update
by R Ghosh on 2020/12/08 22:36
Great app for a browser and to download and view VR videos. I just switched from iPhone 8 to iPhone 12 mini and now the VR viewer doesn’t display correctly. I think the pixels aren’t scaled correctly anymore so now everything appears smaller (zoomed out). So while it takes advantage of the increased pixel density it comes at the cost of objects in the video appearing further away or smaller than they should. This would be a five star review if the fixed this (also would be nice to see that the VR viewer correctly identifies your phone, I can’t see anyway to check this).
Great but no background play is IOS
by the awsome inkling on 2020/12/08 21:07
Good vpn. Great overall browser. It claims to play video in the background and you assume because it’s a browser that it’s through the browser, but on IOS it does not play YouTube videos trough the browser. It would be nice to know how it does that in the background. Already paid for a year of VPN pro as it’s awesome but disappointed on the other side. Update: iOS 14 plays in background if you maximize and go to main screen. Turn screen off and press play on locked screen. On YouTube videos if you play a video you have to press play after choosing your video. If you pay you will skip add. If not then play add. Double clicking is a pain.

Very good browser. Love the built-in vpn and Adblock. The only one complaint I have is that a “find on page” feature needs to be added. It would be very useful! Other than that, overall a pretty amazing app.
Works great!
by Sebaatian k p on 2020/12/03 18:59
If you watch a video on a website, you can do minimized (side view) mode and use other apps. But if you download that video, suddenly there’s no more option to watch in minimized view. If this app had that, it would be perfect! I wish that videos could still play while the screen is off.
Amazing

by rando1105 on 2020/11/26 18:26
The App works really well and I use it all the time but sometimes happened recently like when I go into google and click images it’s suddenly condenses and I can’t look at images and swipe I’m sent directly to the page, and it’s just a really inconvenient thing so please fix that! But overall totally download this app
👍👍👍

Very good app download please

I’m confused about safari

But really into Aloha so far!
An amazing app
by NickyPlane on 2020/11/23 22:41
I’m still surprised by how great, flawless and smooth this app is. I’ll happily keep supporting this app. However I would like to know when is dark mode being added to the browser? Please add it soon guys 🙏🏾
Great App❕
by 1Heavy1 on 2020/11/23 17:49
This app does exactly what the description says which is very appreciated. There are so many apps that don’t meet their own statement of operation or feature claims. I use Aloha all the time & really enjoy it - thanks..
Transfer bookmarks!
by Fightx2112 on 2020/11/22 21:40
Need an easier ways to import bookmarks from chrome and Safari, Aloha's bookmarks, did not detect the HTML bookmarks file, it went straight to download.

Super good browser
by Jahshanehdlgajh on 2020/11/21 03:22
Browser is great to store movies on for a trip or downloading documents for work. I just wish they had implemented a way to video pop out on iOS 13+, because it’s a new native feature. Would be super useful for road trips and is just something that bugs me that’s not offered.
Aloha 👑
by Darkanqel on 2020/11/21 01:28
I just love everything about this browser. The design, the colours, literally bottom to top, is just awesome.

one of the best browsers I’ve ever used on my iPhone.
Could be better
by Fi3ry NaNd0 on 2020/11/19 20:36
General browsing works fine but the keyboard is always unresponsive and slow and ends up entering letters I didn’t type, also the Adblock doesn’t work half of the time.
Useless
by nollychriss on 2020/11/19 05:52
Very useless vpn how can you make something which your self don’t use but expect us to use it and you get paid for it if you are using this vpn who ever made it will no that he need to do a lot of fixing it was better 2018,2019. But this year it so useless and am so disappointed I have always been a fan of this vpn can’t you see that the anonymous has gab from green to red can’t you see that proxy as gone from green to maybe. If I can give you a zero star I will do it cause now it useless and not working anymore if you can’t correct it just delete the vpn cause it feel like you are scamming people by let it stay here
Excellent Privacy, Lacking Features
by GuruAntarSingh on 2020/11/17 23:10
Overall, I love this browser. It’s relatively speedy for using a built in VPN and has everything needed for a general, safe, private web browsing experience. However, and perhaps this is just me but, there are a few features that I use heavily on other browsers and are absent on the iOS version of Aloha. I could not find a page translator feature anywhere and upon searching, could only find the feature on desktop and Android versions. Is there a way to remedy this or is it not offered? It would be nice to have a bookmarks export/import feature. When someone has a lot of bookmarks and want to switch browsers, they’d have to do it manually, one at a time as I did. Am I overlooking that feature? Again, this is a great browser and I’m not regretful of the switch. Please advise on t head cons. Thanks!
Total garbage
by prodcat on 2020/11/17 20:04
Nothing free, you get open VPN for free, or pay pay pay for vpn profile, dot wast your time and security
5 Stars Period
by Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrhdjd on 2018/07/26 10:12
This web browser is everything the UI is beautifully made(I mainly like it because it’s sleek) the VPN services seems pretty awesome(but that’s probably because I have little knowledge of VPN’s) and the video player is amazing I definitely like the browser more because of the video player, the fact that you can slide Horizontally to seek through the video and sliding Vertically(dependent on which side of the screen you swipe on)changes the brightness and there volume. This video player is the main reason why I love this browser. But I do ask that for when you are watching videos while using Bluetooth for audio that you don’t have to use the OSD(On Screen Display) lock to get the video player UI away but this only happens if I using a specific Bluetooth device so it’s no problem. As of now I honestly don’t have any other requests for this app(aside from optimization updates)but that’s bound to happen anyways, keep up the good work guys and I thank you for this fantastic browser!
Pretty Good. (Cost for Premium is Only a few Dollars)
by TimeSpaceGuy on 2020/06/04 09:35
I’ve used this Browser On/Off on my iPad Air for about 1yr.. I don’t have anything Negative to say about it.. It offers almost everything the Most Popular Browsers offer. It doesn’t offer as much Customization as the Big 3 Browsers.. However It offers enough Customization to satisfy most people. It’s MUCH Easier to download Web Pages and Videos using this compared the most popular browsers.. At least if your using an iPad. Often I hit the Download Button on a Video in Edge, Chrome, Safari or FireFox, 70% of the time I get “Downloads Not Available on this site on this Browser”.. That doesn’t happen with this Bowser.. The Browser offers a Free VPN and although that is Good, I prefer to use a VPN Bought from a company that makes it’s money from VPN/Security services. I recommend IPvanish, I’ve been using that on All my computing Devices (Over 8), for the past 6+ years, never had any problems with it.. Norton Security Deluxe also is Very Good. Don’t get me wrong you can use the built in VPN in Aloha Browser, I can’t really say anything against it.. It even offers a “Always On” Option letting you use the VPN, on your iPad even when you aren’t using the Browser... The Speed of this Browser seems as fast as any of them...
Terrible glitch!
by Lishae13 on 2019/05/26 23:41
I’ve been using this app for forever now, and it’s great, but there’s something you guys need to fix. So, whenever I’m watching a video file in the app full screen, and I pull down to see my notifications for other apps, or even when I pull up to my control center, or when I click off of the app for a slight second, or answer a message, the app cuts in half. So I have to click off of the video, and find where I was. Or, even when a screen notification pops up, saying that I need to update my device, an app won’t download, etc...this glitch still happens. It literally cuts the video in half, so that one part of the screen is pitch black, and the other is still playing. This is awfully annoying, and I’ve been waiting for u guys to fix it for at least three months, but still nothing. I would have given it five stars, but this glitch is terrible, and you guys need to acknowledge it! Please!
Sooo much potential
by | m4tr1x | on 2020/02/22 20:47
Love it . Feel like usability and security could be at the top . Still has rough edges , formatting, some lipstick in a few areas and more additional features that more mature browsers have , but if they stay on this path and churn stable , quality updates like they have been. It’s gonna be my goto hands down. Great job so far folks One feature request that is so needed these days with all the injection %#*^ going on would be a dev inspection tab , that at a minimum would “looove” a pattern match block pre-load. That is so needed for the iOS platform at the moment since iOS has no real way to firewall this stuff. iOS has to get this ability in some way whether it’s a string match , object or ip address. I think most folks that have seen all the recent jazz going on over with the current market lead browser would agree. Would be a grand slam, killin it keep it up!
Restore Purchase Malfunction
by BPa2c on 2019/11/06 09:50
Aloha browser has been my go to. With its ease of use and privacy focused functionality alone, I would recommend it to any of my friends. Also it’s in-app media player/downloader and file management system are both excellent and far surpass any other browser I’ve come across. However, I only give three stars because for some reason, annual subscription I’ve purchased on my iPad hasn't been transferable to my iPhone through restore purchases. I’m not sure we need to purchase them separately or not but from my experience usually the subscription could be shared with a multiple devices with the same iOS account. If this is a bug, I would like it fixed. But if it’s not I would like others to know before purchasing the subscription. Regardless, I thank the people who created this wonderful app for us.
Incredibly useful but fearful...
by ChadDuckster on 2018/09/21 12:59
It’s an amazing web browser and incredibly useful, especially in a closed off marketplace like iOS has. You’re able to download compatible mp4 videos, pictures saved to the browser files or your camera roll, free VPN for browsing and downloads, and even background video playback! It’s incredible and refreshing in an environment where all of these features have been gutted out of modern mobile browsers for money. This does make me worry though, because most apps that let you do THIS much don’t tend to last long without some sort of update removing or severely limiting the features that made the browser popular in the first place. For now though, it’s a faster browser and a safe bet. I think for 99 cents to get the ad free version, there’s no better browser on iOS.
Awesome browser!!
by Ziofinkel on 2018/05/29 17:50
It’s hard to find a browser that is everything you want it to be, feature loaded, private, etc. I’ve finally replaced this with safari or I should say its about a 80/20 split which says a great deal since I’ve been a safari user for 8+yrs but old habits die hard. However, I can see this completely and relatively quickly having me off safari for good. Really enjoy using it and like that even the general layout to the app icon just appears inconspicuous. I’m a pretty particular individual even so that my mind will allow me to dislike an app to a certain degree based on color scheme of the icon and home page (I know it’s crazy but I’m not the only one out there). With that being said from front end to back end I really enjoy using this!! Keep it up guys hope to continue to see good things from ya!!
Fastest, Safest, Best Browser Ever (this is indisputable)
by Slybootie on 2018/01/06 22:47
Aloha's team of IT gurus reimagined traditional Web browsing and transformed it into a contemporary masterpiece. For example, to compare the performance of Aloha to that of Safari (or Firefox, Chrome, Proton, Etc.) is as ridiculous as to compare Hawaii to Texas. Aloha, like Hawaii, is multidimensional, elegant, and exceeds expectation. Safari, like Texas, is flat, traditional and conservative, and searching for something takes far too long. When you try you won't wonder why Aloha is rated the #1 browser and continues to receive myriad 5-star reviews. Oh, and Aloha masks your IP address through a VPN, which helps to keep the important data on your phone safe from the NSA and Korean hackers when you're browsing ponr sites as well as those other socially deviant shenanigans you enjoy getting into online.
Pretty good...ads suddenly showing
by lanieann7 on 2020/08/24 14:20
I use this much more frequently than Safari. Works well, but wish it had the option to stick permanently and load every time in desktop mode. I have to click to change to it all the time. (On larger tablets, mobile view is strange and doesn’t let a user navigate easily on some websites.) This past week, for some reason, intrusive ads are where there used to be none. For example, all over eBay, which is where I spend significant time. Even toggled off whatever that safe ads option is in settings...nope, ads that take up the whole visible screen area and you have to scroll down to get to your selling information. Oddly, these ads are NOT showing in Safari. Now, i know from other posts that eBay has had these ads for a long time; it was one of the nice things about using Aloha - didn’t see the aggravating ads any were referencing in complaints.
Aloha, Indeed. Aloha heaven.
by Sebastian Alesander on 2020/06/05 06:02
I’ve been using Aloha ever since my old downloading browser would give me an hour’s worth of ads within downloading a few course videos. Aloha is the best, most reliable browser ever. I wish the software was for desktops and pcs, because of the nice layout, easy manoeuvring, iTunes file sharing friendly, and feature allowing save different types of content. I would love to see more security options, or at least more numbers in a four digit pin. I use it mainly to safety download my course videos for different subjects and transfer them to a database for future reference. But I’ve become accustomed to using Aloha instead of Safari. And I might use it more than Google Chrome if you come out with a brilliant desktop version. Thanks, and PLEASE keep designing applications. Carson
Scintillating, Seamless, Smooth.
by Eden Cross on 2020/09/27 19:09
It's no exaggeration, this app is the cream of the crop as far as I am concerned when it comes to being a one stop shop browser that can do any and all a user with reasonably standard expectations could never get from most any other browser that's out. I tried Google, chrome, safari, edge, duckduckgoo, Firefox, and opera. None of them have me a built in video Downloader that organizes files quickly and easily with a break down of my storage space left that loads faster than the built-in apple stuff you use in settings. It has an elite VPN you can use on this and every other app. The premium let's you use a trial if you want but it's so reasonably affordable that I went for the yearly option. And yeah there's alot more features than what I even said so far.
Aloha!! Fast, Secure and User Friendly
by mephixlizo on 2019/07/25 01:29
I rarely do reviews for apps no matter how good, but Aloha browser is one app I can’t just keep quiet about. The browser is super fast, VPN is highly secured and it makes downloading of files very easy. Cool music and video player, file management and sharing has been one of my major problems since I started using my Apple phone, but this app has helped me conquer that. Since I started using Aloha I have told so many of my friends about it and they all like it, who wouldn’t?. I see this browser beating the rest in no time. I still have one problem though, the team should add a search option, so users can search for a particular file using the files name. I think that’s the only setback for me so far. Thanks for this brilliant idea.
Dose what I wanted and more
by Dj N4D4 Xbar on 2020/10/15 03:28
Unlike most apps on the Apple store this app actually does what it says it supposed to do. I use this browser more than any other. I wish they had a desktop version. The only thing that I think is missing is a reader like MICROSOFT EDGE has but that’s cool I have to use third party readers for Firefox, google, and safari because I don’t like their readers. I would get this app even if it was just for the player. The player is the best for touch screen devices all controls are accessible on player. The downloading can sometimes download files I couldn’t get with my other downloaders and I didn’t have to give access to some widget or third party. That doesn’t seem right (Firefox/chrome)
new update is a no
by hphxmm on 2018/01/25 21:21
I think that there are many features of this browser I feel are efficient, and I feel it is simple but works great enough to be my go-to browser. However, the recent update to the tabs has made me feel less positive. When I open a new tab now, whether it is a regular, private, or background tab option, the tab is opened at the end of all the other one, instead of opening right next to the previous window. This makes navigation a lot more difficult than it was, and I don’t even have the option to move the tab back towards the previous one or resort my tabs. Small change, but it really made me feel that I would rather just use Safari for the easier navigation. I also think there could be more ways to customize settings to the user’s needs, as speed dial on the home page is crowded with dozens of news articles that I don’t need.
I used to love this app...
by ric6sic6 on 2019/08/10 08:49
Update:developer contacted me and said to enable ad-blocker and it should fix problem. Nope. I always have ad-blocker on. Even turn it off and turn it back on and still no change. Original review:When the app actually works right it’s everything I want in a browser/downloader. That was before it started buggin the f out. Now every time I try to use it, it force opens the App Store after a page loads. When I close the App Store and go back into the Aloha app, it’s no longer on the page I was viewing, but instead it’s several pages back. Sometimes this happens as much as 5-10 times back to back. It’s rather frustrating to even attempt to try to get a page to load. What’s the point in even trying to use this app when I’m constantly getting sent to the App Store? I’d love to give this app 5 stars, because when it works it is definitely 5 star worthy, but I just can’t do that until this problem is fixed.
Unreliable & slow
by Bill2go on 2018/02/10 01:17
Sometimes only half of a webpage will load, other times a page won’t load at all. One thing that’s consistent is that if a webpage does load, it loads very slowly. I base my observations on the fact that I have a reliable, high-speed connection and comparing this browser to others that load pages much faster and more reliable. Therefore, I’ve isolated the problem to this app. I was anxious to like this app, as I wanted a faster, more reliable browser than Safari, but unfortunately this app is no improvement. Instead of one star, I gave this app two stars, solely because I like having the ability to clear the history directly in the app, as opposed to having to go into my iPad’s “Settings”, like you’re required to do on Safari. Aloha has potential, hopefully the necessary improvements will be made, so I can come back to using it sometime in the future.
A Great Browser But Could Be Better, Needs Updating
by MistaBobobo on 2020/10/08 23:38
I’ve been using Aloha for about two years and I’m really happy with how it’s progressing, I use it alongside Safari. Although my biggest gripe is that even despite paying for the yearly subscription the premium servers don’t seem to be any faster and the ad block doesn’t always work and is hit or miss, two big things that need addressing. In addition the app has become unstable in recent updates and it doesn’t always load pages or videos/websites properly so I hope that gets patched. Overall the customization and ease of use is very handy and I love the file storing and video downloading system, if the app was faster than Safari and had more snappy, QoL updates I’d call it perfect. I hope to see it continue to improve.
Suggestion for Tab View
by JenniLuvsDisney on 2018/12/03 19:36
A feature that was implemented to the Safari browser that I think would work well in Aloha browser is the ability to search for tabs. In Safari’s tab view, when you swipe all the way up, you reveal a hidden search bar in which you can type in keywords to search through your existing tabs. This can prove very useful when you have a lot of existing tabs open. A search bar would make things much easier instead of having to scroll through every single tab to find what you want. Thank you for listening to the community! Without a doubt, still my favorite mobile browser by far!
ABSOLUTELY GREAT BROWSER Except For One Thing
by WheelsintheJIC on 2019/10/16 19:00
I absolutely LOVE the video player. I think the ability to control brightness and volume just by sliding your finger vertically is revolutionary. Also, it's so nice not to have to drag vertically to adjust the seeking speed and then horizontally to actually find the spot you want. If Apple was smart they'd do something similar to yours. I also love how you can download any video from any site. I have only one complaint and it's a kinda big one. I wish there was a way for me to back up my bookmarks and downloaded videos. In the past, my phone has gotten wiped and every time I loose all my bookmarks. All in all, I have yet to find another app with the same features and that's what makes it so great.
Overall good app, could use some improvements
by Best reviewer for you on 2018/12/07 07:58
The app is probably the best browser app on the AppStore right now. I absolutely love it. It does need some improvements though. For one thing, it would be great to be able to search for words on a page, similarly to how it is possible on Safari. It would also be nice to have a brightness/volume scrubber lock while in video, so you don’t accidentally change a setting when scrubbing through time. I’m not a huge fan of the subscription premium model, I would much rather pay a premium once and be done with it, as I do want to support them. You don’t really lose anything too major by not having premium, so if you are content on using the free version, it’s just as good.
Not so private
by Wildebeest boy on 2020/07/06 19:07
This app works really well for browsing and downloading videos. It also is very secure with either a passcode or a face ID. No one can see your photos or videos unless they have one of those. However what is not so private is that any files that are downloaded also go into the Files app on the iPhone. The files app has all files on your phone including the ones from Aloha and it is not private at all, anyone can access it if they pick up your phone. UPDATE. A developer responded with a simple fix. Go to Settings in the download section. Toggle to OFF to not allow saving Aloha files in the iphone Files app. Problem solved! Thanks for the hint!
Very good software, but the latest version of the problem is a lot!
by artert on 2017/09/25 10:58
Originally is very good software, this updated interface is very beautiful, very fit ios11, but more or less a lot of problems, the page load becomes very slow, language can not switch, there is the biggest problem, the software main interface in the upper left corner of the icon actually disappeared, I have been installed several times, and several times to restart, This problem can not be solved, the VPN switch does not exist, this browser and other browser what is the difference? Hope to update as soon as possible, fix bugs, thank you very much!
Almost Everything I Need in a Browser
by Bobby Nickleshmitt on 2020/03/30 11:47
I have been using Aloha for about 2 years now. The VPN aspect isn’t really what I go for, rather I wanted to pay for a browsing app instead of giving my data to the big wigs. I hated that chrome wouldn’t let me save certain images, but not this bad boy. It’s easy, comprehensive, and the downloading capabilities are far more flexible and accessible than any other app I have used for music, videos, gifs, and files such as pdfs and word. The only downside is that there’s no “find in page” for text, but if you like saving files and images easily, hate corporations having access to your personal information, and like having a simple streamlined browser, this one is for you.
Suspicious Behavior
by milkywayinhabitant on 2019/11/30 02:44
This browser has been great, but I have a concern about what’s going on under the hood. At certain times when I use it, when connected to WiFi (but not EVERY time..just occasionally), it will cause my phone to heat up significantly and will crash a few times. Eventually, it stops and works just fine. I’ve opted out of all usage/diagnostics sharing (everything you’re able to opt out of in the privacy section), so something else is going on here. I’d love to do a packet capture, but I’m unable to do this in my current situation. I’m using an XS Max running the latest version of iOS, so my phone is more than capable of running this browser, spec-wise. The developer seems to respond to a lot of reviews, so I would really appreciate an explanation for this.
Think we got a winner here.
by bigLONGfatSHLONG on 2019/08/17 11:47
Well after years of looking for that one browser. Download after download, install after install, followed soon aftrr with the delete botton hit. But this browser supprided me. Wonderful clean interface. It really does pop out at you. With the ability to change thrmes. All you Typical settings. It Does have a desktop/mobile agent as well. Just very tricky to find. You may want to put that in the main settings menu. But overall really clean really quick privecy, adblock... etc. I have never Said this before but my third-party browser for Aolha is now my main browser to replace safari. Great job Dev.
Great features, easy to use...
by Kevin Hamby on 2018/11/17 05:25
I love this App. It's simple to use download virtually everything that I've tried. My only suggestion would be to redesign the browser saw that each page is put In historical order. Also if you accidentally hit in the wrong button on the browser spam pop-ups opening in webpages, relentlessly. I don't know if the Aloha is getting revenue from this, but if you aren't do some filtering please. I like the options for resolution choices. One other suggestion would be to allow us to check whether we're downloading yet HEIC or mp4, as many of us they have either old or max that don't support the new codec yet. It is the easiest and quickest way to download from the web.
The App constantly evolves!!
by Seventh Nova on 2018/07/17 23:27
Wow! I gave feedback and asked about a scrolling feature when viewing photos, and then went beyond that and added a slide show feature along with the scrolling! Not only that, but the app has been updated to allow me to listen to audiobooks and music while I surf the net. If I want to listen to a downloaded guitar lesson while viewing chord charts on a website, that’s now possible! The app was already good but they really brought it up with the last update; the app just keeps evolving and getting better and better! No telling what they’ll do next, but they do take feedback to heart! =))
Desktop View and Zoom Out Needed
by TreyJohnsonMN on 2019/02/07 04:29
Much like other mobile internet browsers, Aloha has one major flaw. That is the inability to zoom out. When I am on a website, especially a project management site known as Jira, the screen is always far too zoomed in without the ability to zoom out like on a desktop browser. I also haven’t been able to find an option to either request the desktop website or completely prevent mobile the mobile view from coming up. I always use this browser on my iPad Pro, and some more desktop style features would be very welcomed. If you could get those two things specifically, then I would never use chrome or safari again. Thanks!
Best ever, some serious bugs
by parhamQ on 2019/04/21 02:32
This app is almost the perfect downloader app for iOS although there isn’t any rivals in this level, but I’ve come across this problem and suddenly Aloha can’t download anything so please do something about it. I reinstalled the app and it works now but my bookmarks and other stuff are gone, it doesn't matter to me but it's still a flaw and if possible it'd be perfect if you add the option to move the tabs and to save the order of the tabs that are sorted by the users preferences Ps: this new update on 19 april 2019 has some bugs that were actually fixed in the last version but they are back and this is really annoying so please fix it soon
Amazing Web Browser
by Add Comcast back on 2020/09/14 02:44
I’ve been using Aloha for just over a year and it is one of the best mobile browsers out there in my opinion. Enables you to download and store videos on the app, built in VPN and many other features. I do wish they had a cloud network that could be used with a laptop to transfer and keep files and they took away the option to use a custom photo on the home page that I wish they’d bring back. Seems like this app is constantly being updated which is nice. Very functional and fast browser and I would definitely recommend
Good Until It’s Not.
by RMVG03 on 2018/02/04 23:04
I’ve been using Aloha as a browser for a few years now. While their are things I love about it, I also have some issues with it. I tend to get half loaded pages or refreshing a page and then it being totally blank. No, it’s not my internet. If I open another browser it’ll work fine. I don’t know what’s causing this issue but it causes me to actually copy the website and open it either in safari or mozilla. This is, obviously, irritating. If these issues get fixed, my rating would certainly change. Edit: HOW COULD I FORGET ABOUT FREEZING?! I will have sometimes only ONE tab open and it will completely freeze, close the app, and still can’t do anything. This also needs to be fixed!!!
Overall pretty good, but some things to iron out
by SnwmB on 2018/08/20 03:07
First off I like the look of the app and the inclusion of a vpn is great. I do have a few issues though. -There is no way to reorder tabs, which, if you many open tabs like I do, can cause confusion. -Sometimes on start the app seems to shuffle tabs around, worsening the above problem. -I think the app should always open on normal tabs, period, because I have seen it open to private and begin loading before the vpn activates. -This could come from my wifi, not the app, but I have seen it start loading a private tab with vpn, and the vpn will shut off while it keeps loading without it; sometimes this comes with the vpn switching on and off repeatedly. Resetting the app fixes this for me. -I have had the problem others report where all tabs will only load part way down several times, but resetting the app fixes this for me too. I think that with a few added features, this would really be one of the best browser app out there, and I hope the developers read this and can tackle these problems in a future update. Thanks!
Awesome Browser (not just for VPN)
by Cmb25380 on 2019/06/22 00:43
I think I have downloaded every browser out there, and this is hands down the best. I don’t really have a use for the VPN feature, although it’s a good option to have I suppose. The entire layout is so user friendly- easy to navigate favorites, the news on the home page is customizable, videos are great (swipe up or down on the left for brightness, up or down on right for volume- very convenient). The only issue I had was the speed, it would get hung up on certain pages and take forever to load. The new update fixed that. Great app.
Great app! BUT ONE MORE THING
by jayanthony354 on 2017/12/06 22:54
I love this app it’s so easy to use and it’s great if you don’t have iTunes. I can’t complain too much but one thing that could get added on or fixed is when your playing music you can access the rest of the app it would be cool to listen to music and still stream the web or view the rest of the content on the app without stopping the song from playing👌🏼 and if you can put a shuffle mode for the music it would be AWESOME! Other than that the app is AMAZING. *********** Can you add playlists for the music so I can keep my hood rat music separated from my classical music. Please and thank you!
Worth the subscription

This browser is hands down one of the best I’ve used. The video player and how it’s seamlessly integrated into the ui is amazing. File sharing is great for moving over videos and pictures and the fact that I can do this with just about any file makes this even better. Like other reviews I usually use this app for music mainly, so I thought that maybe I could make a little request; maybe making a shortcut for downloads and the like so that we can listen to music with the press of just one button. That would be absolutely amazing.
SUGGESTIONS HERE

This is everything I need. One big thing I notice is that when youre playing a video, and you decide to lock the phone, the video keeps on playing in the background and you can hear the audio pretty much, even if its displaying the pin unlock page. Another one is the screenshot that iOS takes when exiting the app. There are many times that the webpage you were viewing was taken a screenshot and it shows briefly upon re-opening the app before the app displays the pin unlock page. The last one is when watching video. Pressing the view fullscreen mode button relaods the whole video and starts over (as opposed to just making the video display larger). Its like the inline webpage video player is entirely different from the full screen video player. Perhaps using iOS native player would help? Thanks guys for the amazing gift youve given the world. This app is pretty much the best of its class out there and I cant wait to see it become even better. Cheers!
BEST at what it does .
by THE Tyzzler on 2020/08/12 22:16
THE BEST at what it does. As stated by others, the functionality of the video player is beyond compare. The ability to drag finger horizontally to go forward/backwards in the video, and vertically to either increase/decrease volume or brighten/dim the screen (depending on the side of the screen the gesture is performed) is one specific that makes Aloha the best! Worth every penny. (After years of iPhone/App store interaction, this is the VERY FIRST review I've ever made, not for any incentivized reason such as a discount, but simply to be helpful in letting others know: this one is for real...this one is the best.
1 thing
by Joseph :D on 2018/02/27 17:53
Best mobile browser by far, but Say you press the home button while in a private tab; (I “have require passcode” on private tabs, not application) when you reopen the app, instead of it opening to the private tab for a brief second and then requiring your passcode, could you just reopen the app in a non private tab? If you do what I said above, you’re able to see the tab briefly before it requires a passcode, and also you can make out shapes and colors through the passcode screen, and even if you click cancel it’ll show your tab briefly. It’d be nice to have 0 worries about that. Other than that by far the best browser. Edit: also a “Find in Page” would be super helpful !
Hands down the best!!!!
by furmanborst on 2018/10/21 23:32
Hands down the best app in the “free apps” store. I’d go as far to claim It would exceed expectations if you paid $9.99....... Which also makes me worry a mandatory subscription will be included in an update sometime in the near future. Nevertheless, and has rekindled my enjoyment in perusing the “Utilities” app section which seem less and less innovative as of late...... Special appreciation to whoever pushed for the UI forward and backward scanning function. Best of any media player in & out of its class. Only request.....I’d love to see “Video Speed Control” functionality be added.
Wish I’d used this in high school
by V.143 on 2020/08/11 00:06
At my high school they used to track every site you visited while connected to the WiFi and block literally every good website. While a browser and vpn aren’t exactly all that useful to me right now, I’m sure they would’ve helped me a lot back then especially with the built in VPN. Recommend this for students on public WiFi networks that track everything you do. All in all a good app that I’m not keeping because I don’t really have a need for it. If you’re eyeing this app and have some free storage, I’d just say go for it!
Best browser out there, no exceptions.
by MasterDethronerX2 on 2018/04/14 17:31
Seriously, this thing is a literal Swiss Army knife of features. It has all the normal bells and whistles of a traditional mobile browser, but also includes built in VPN and Media/File manager. If you're looking for an alternative to the default Safari app, this is it. EDIT: After using it for about a week or two longer, I do notice a glaring fault in the video player. There is currently no way to set a video to repeat, and it will automatically switch to the next video in the list. Hopefully, this will be changed in a future update.
Continues to get worse
by Shad0wL0rd on 2018/12/14 07:31
The devs continue to remove capabilities at this point, without adding anything new or useful. Plenty of sites have protections built-in that prevent you from downloading from them. Furthermore, in the years that I have owned this app, this is now the THIRD time this app has deleted all of my saved content. That's right, all of it. The files section now shows nothing. Which is strange, considering the app takes up a substantial amount of space on my phone. So, essentially, all of my content is still on my phone, but the app has deleted all of the available links for me to get to it. The worst of both worlds. Wonderful. Absolutely incompetent. Tl;dr: Getting worse, sometimes deletes all your downloaded content for whatever reason, you'd be better off finding a different app.
Best browser there is and I will tell you why.
by Mr Robot 1980 on 2019/04/04 15:11
Not only because of privacy. But i have an iPad 12.9 and after updating to iOS every site on every single solitary browser except this one runs choppy in full screen. Chrome, puffin, Firefox, safari you name it. All of them would run HD choppy in full screen. They worked in window mode but when in full they would stutter and not work. This is an iOS 12 problem. Then I tried this browser and viola. Not a single stutter or delay. Just amazing. This is the best browser out there hands down.
Awesome Browser
by dmetzcher on 2017/12/29 20:39
This browser is great. I thought the VPN would slow data transfer a lot, as all VPNs tend to do, but I was pleasantly surprised to see that is not the case. In fact, I'm getting 12 Mbps down and 5 Mbps up with only 26ms latency. I've never gotten that kind of bandwidth from any other VPN. Ever. I would LOVE to make this my primary browser and give it five stars. The only feature it needs is the ability to fill passwords using a third-party app like 1Password. When I bring up the share sheet, I see that 1Password is not available to me. All major browsers support this, so I hope it's a priority. I'd really like to make this my primary browser.
Lots of bugs after premium purchase.
by Neelyfbaby on 2020/02/20 16:25
Loved the app before I bought premium VPN access now the app has been acting weird since I purchased premium about 4 days ago. When I use the browser to log into an account on any website it used to remember my information even if the app was working in the background. After premium purchase of I leave the app it logs me out. Turned on device wide VPN now even when I do not have the browser running it CONSTANTLY tries connecting to the VPN and the connections are faulty quite frequently now other apps are behaving erratically while on this “perpetual VPN” even when it’s switched off. My own device (iPhone X 256GB) doesn’t even show the WiFi indicator anymore since buying premium. I never had any of these issues before I PAID for premium.
Background play is working but is choppy
by The meliodas on 2020/01/08 04:13
The app used to not play videos in the background about an update ago. Now on this update it can, but it’s still buggy. If I play a video and exit the app to multitask SOMETIMES the player works. When it works and I return to Aloha, the player is stuck/frozen. For example, I play a 10 minute video, then I leave the app to multitask while listening to the audio for 5 minutes. I return to Aloha and see that my video isn’t at the 5 minute mark and is instead frozen in the beginning and I would have to refresh the page which is inconvenient because how am I supposed to know exactly where I left off?
Perfect as they come!
by valechammo on 2018/09/26 06:55
Being an Apple employee isn’t just because we have great benefits but also because I love the brand and my loyalty is key. But I have to admit this browser has everything there is and more. I never seen a better way to play videos and multitask at the same way. Love that you can have a passcode you know for those fun videos you don’t want your niece to find in your history haha. So the video streaming, privacy, downloads, tools are just a few things that make this probably the #1 browser so far. Two thumbs up!!
Cannot open a new tab
by nutella_98 on 2020/12/17 17:13
I use Aloha in private mode. However it happens many times that I close the browser, kill it from the bg and turn off my iPad (sleep). Then later I want to use Aloha again, and as soon as the app opens it flashes the dark private mode window (as it was last time), but then immediately switches to the light, normal window. At that point when I tap the small "one" icon (1) at the top right, that indicates the number if open tabs, it doesn't work. It doesn't register any taps and so I no longer able to open a new tab. I have to shut down the app and open it again, and then I am able to switch back to private mode. Quite irritating since this happens a lot. iOS 13.4.1 iPad 6
Dead On The Money!
by Fausto Ventura on 2019/05/20 04:31
Names Fausto, love this app. Gives me that sense of security and privacy I’ve been looking for. And it’s super user friendly and almost more appealing to simply browse. Awesome job guys, I look forward to go premium, but I couldn’t find an option to use apples integrated accounts and password manager under my settings or the app settings. It would be nice to create an account under Aloha too, so that I could back up things such as bookmarks, reading logs. As I’ve acquired so many articles to read that I would hate to lose them now. Patiently waiting for an update, thanks again guys.
