The browsing app does not work. It is always stuck on the fireproof website. Search does nothing and I cannot enter in a URL.
Horrible browsing experience. It's like they had a high school kid design and code this app. Save your money. Find something else.
1. Please allow for full screen videos and photos when we rotate the screen. This is standard for all phones and browsers. 2. Put an X on the far right of the URL bar so we can quick delete whatever is in there and type in the new website. 3. Allow for pinch zoom in and out on literally any website please. This is frustrating because some websites are not optimized for mobile and we can't zoom out to see all content on the site. This app has been around for a while and is WAY behind. I will continue using it because I believe in the cause let's be real, I need it. These 3 improvements will result in a 5 STAR rating from me guaranteed. Every other feature works very well.
Terrible app... and not the best support.
This app is terrible. It used to work great when I had it back in 2012, before Macafe bought them. Started using it again recently and this is now a very poorly maintained browser. Weird glitches screwing up searches and previous pages, no zoom or landscape. There are better apps to actually help you with protection from porn but are still good browsers. Don't fall for their subscription. NOT Worth it.
I love the mission of this ministry. I hate their app. X3 watch browser is beyond "bad." Terms such as "sub-par", "horrible" and "pathetic" come to mind when I think of the X3 browser for my iPhone. Is this really the best you guys could do? It doesn't interact with any other app, it's horrific when trying to browse a website. It's incompatible with nearly every website and the overall quality is just a joke. Come on guys, get with the program. Either do a browser right or stop wasting my time and money. Will not be renewing my subscription.
I should have read the reviews!! I paid the entire annual amount up front. After all-- these people are honest. Right---- WRONG!! It never worked the first time I tried it. Signal strength was so weak it would not function. I contacted this company after a few days and got the standard statement of "Sorry. No refund. But we are striving to give better service". These people are reading these reviews and know full well their service is shoddy and doesn't work yet they continue to steal people's money under the guise of morality and decency. WHAT HYPOCRISY!! It wouldn't surprise me at all if these people in fact were the pornographers themselves cashing in on people's attempts to protect themselves against their own product!!! If I buy a lawn mower and it doesn't start or dispenses ice when I pull the cord, it either is not a real lawn mower and (or) does not function in the capacity for which it was advertised. I will be contacting the Better Business Bureau and will be buying a different porn blocking program with a higher rating than this pitiful 1 1/2 or 2. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT.
You can't view videos in landscape, you can pinch to zoom in/out, search and URL bars do not have an "x" to quickly erase and re-type. I really think that you guys could work on the functionality of this app. However, the blocking and accountability works great. We just shouldn't have to let go of other browsing features to have that.
App no longer crashes, but now doesn't do anything. Basically worthless. Searches and pages will not load. Seems to get stuck in a loop.
It is blocking content for chrome and safari on my iPhone. Private browser disabled on Safari. Content blocked on Chrome. Doesn't allow blocked content on other third party browsing apps. It actually blocks its own website in app browser. App browser is worthless. Content not served in app browser will not serve on weekly report. However, if content is block, not super necessary. Lastly you want real accountability, set your spouse as partner email. Spouse will know if you remove app, and you will always have it top of mind.
If you're going to make a browser app to help keep porn accountable, make it easy to use. This is clunky, it takes ages to load and the tab system is a nuisance. It makes me want to download another browser, which entirely defeats the purpose of this app.
The app no longer works for any new customers looking to get onto the free version
After this latest update this app is crashing on launch for me as well. This is disappointing as I had hoped the recent updates would fix many of the frustrations I have with this app. Also, what is with the massive white bar at the top of the screen all the time? It takes a fair amount of browsing real estate for no purpose. Please do some work on this app guys. Thanks.
Sorry but this update is the worst yet, I am unable to use the app as it continues to crash on launch, even after the VERY latest update that supposedly fixed this. Very disappointing, doesn't seem to be much support for this app.
This is by far the worst browser I have used. 1: I shouldn't have to log back in every time I close the app 2: I continually check *off* on the "detect copied URL's" but it continues to pop up and detect them anyway after closing the app and opening again 3: I cannot fully utilise the size of my screen as the purple borders refuse to go away 4: Browser history goes across different accounts, this is very bad! 5: The homepage is your X3 website, and I can't get around this. Please allow for something else. Come on guys, I want to beat porn addiction, why have you got to make it so much more unpleasant and difficult?
I was hoping this would help me. It hasn't. It's a rubbish app that crashes, logs out constantly and doesn't recognise my subscription. Let me down
What is your commitment going to be for us premium paying members? Would you pay for an app that was littered with bugs, poorly designed and no forthcoming updates? Here is a list of some of the many problems with this app: 1. Search bar doesn’t work. 2. You can’t open a link into a new tab. You have to copy the link, open a new tab manually and paste the link in. 3. No load indicator so you can’t tell if a page is loading or not. 4. Can’t set a home page. 5. Ironically, your default home page is “XXX” front and centre. What would a person who’s never used this app think if they saw that? 6. Diminishing release cycles - 2010 - 7 updates - 2011 - 5 updates - 2012 - 4 updates - 2013 - 4 updates - 2014 - 3 updates - 2015 - 0 updates Maybe Craig you should eat your own dog food and actually try out this time-waster of an app. If I could give a zero, I would.
Keeps crashing! Has not worked for MONTHS!!
The idea of this app is great, but this isn't a review of an idea, this is an app. The app is poor. The design is terrible, the search bar doesn't work, logs out all the time, is slow as, has an annoying banner down the bottom to upgrade to features I don't want, and needs work on the layout. I get that this is free, but it's been around for year and really should be top notch by now. Get to work fellas!
This review is for version 2.0.3. Let's celebrate what's improved: A) crashing every time it's open - fixed. B) Bookmark list that selected the bookmark below - fixed. Still causing grief for multiple versions: A) a google search bar THAT DOES NOT WORK! I never yell online but seriously guys this is basic functionality which hasn't worked since v2 was catastrophically released. Fix it please! B) ugly purple banner ad for an update whose feature list does NOT include the promise to remove the ad! C) a browser for my iPhone 5 that won't hide the browser chrome and insists on taking up the space with an ad at the bottom and black space at the top. D) new joy - logs me out MULTIPLE TIMES A DAY! C'mon guys - serious inconvenience. E) no ability to edit and rearrange bookmarks.. Can it be that hard? Do I want safe browsing? Yup. I'll pay you $50 for the privilege of a self reporting browser that gives me full screen browsing and loses the ridiculous constraints and bugs. Come take my money..
Worked fine for me until the newest IOS update, I can't even open any URL without it crashing. App needs improving, great alternative for the Safari browser but needs improvement.
This app has terrible functionality and does not integrate into your phone at all. Also the customer service department of X3 is the worst I've ever dealt with. Stay away from this app. Find other ways to maintain online integrity.
I have found the exact same number of issues as Da G33k's review on 6/19/2016. The new update has been a disappointment. I have paid for the "premium" account so I'm locked in. I've updated my phone to the newest iOS update and have no internet accessibility. I figured I was not the only one experiencing this so I have not directly reached out. I keep waiting on X3Watch to update all of these listed issues and the issue I've mentioned here, but it currently has yet to happen. I guess they need a "special invitation" to fix these issues we've listed. I would not recommend this app with its current state as of 10/16/2016.
I tried to hold off on writing a bad review on this product, as I like the concept, but the execution leaves a lot to be desired. For starters, as soon as I updated to iOS10, it now crashes as soon as I type something in the search bar or go to a pasted link. But even if it wasn't crashing, there is so much that needs to be fixed. Forcing your users to see a splash page that basically just trumpets "THIS USER LIKES PORN" is embarrassing and I feel like I have something else to hide now. When it was working, if I wanted to show someone a website or something, I would hide my phone under the table til I loaded the page and then could show them. I'm not embarrassed about trying to conquer my addiction or that I used to struggle with that, but it's not something that I want to share with every single person that sees my phone. We should be able to choose a home screen like before. I'm not even mad about the opening app screen, but the forced homepage blasting what the app is about after you've already paid for it is ridiculous. The bookmarks don't work either. I was happy to pay for this service when it was actually working. But I will not renew if things aren't fixed and I will be warning people away from this service altogether if you can't fix the app...that's what the payments are supposed to be for. It's pretty sad when one of the only services out there that's actually trying to help is doing such a poor job. You have 0, 3-5 stars....what in the world.
After having this app a few days I believe it works. By having an app that crashes so often this will ensure I have no access to the Internet; therefore assisting me in avoiding inappropriate material online. GENIUS!! Seriously; please fix the issue of crashing, log in failure, freezing, etc. Thanks
Maybe if we heard from them, I'd be a little more okay. But they give us nothing. This app doesn't work at all. I type something into the search and it crashes. I use other people's phones to use the Internet because my internet is useless.
Crashes on latest IOS. Was glitchy before that. Bad reviews since August ??!
Will this app ever be fixed? It's like you don't care at all. You have effectively created an app with more 1 star reviews than I have ever seen. Please take a hint from the hundreds of unhappy people using this app. READ YOUR REVIEWS. STRIVE FOR A 5 STAR REVIEW. Come on guys.
It crashes as soon as I type in a website. Since the new iOS10 update the app has been useless on my iPhone. I'm about to stop paying for it. It still works well on my laptop though.
I'm really sad that this new version of the app is not functional--for the past two weeks, every time I go to open this app it crashes and won't even work for me. I've been so happy to have a good accountability app for the past few years, but it's sad and disappointing now that it seems to no longer work well. I hope it gets fixed soon.
