Shadowrocket Comments & Reviews

TransferWise 💸

Enjoy high maximum transfers into more than 20 currencies while saving up to 90% over local banks! The cheap, fast way to send money abroad. Free transfer up to 500 USD!

- Doesn’t seem to work with WiFi

I also noticed the problem. After the upgrade to iOS 11, it automatically disconnects the phone from WiFi and uses 4g instead. The problem seems to be solved by previous updates but is back again, and the problem doesn’t seem to be present on every WiFi router, I think the app works with certain protocol or hardware somehow

- I’d love to give 5 stars but...

This is an awesome app. Worked perfectly before but I’m giving 3 stars because somehow it stopped working with Facebook messenger. Doesn’t mark the conversations read, struggles sending and receiving messages. This is the only complain, but a huge one. Another app that I found, and which is free btw - Potatso Lite, does the job just right btw. I’d love to change the rating as soon as the bug is fixed. Otherwise it’s awesome and the developers are awesome. Long live free internet (in China) 🙌✊

- Causes significant heat on iPhone SE (2020)

It used to work great on my iPhone SE (2016) and 2 iPads, but when I switched to the new SE problems began to rise. The first time I enabled shadowrocket, the phone heated up in my pocket and caused the camera to stop functioning. Every time I opened shadowrocket since then, I can feel the temperature rising on the phone back (below the camera, about the CPU area) and don't dare to keep it enabled for more than several minutes.

- Probably the best multi protocol VPN software

This is really good stuff, and has very few bugs even after one year of use. But it’s been a while, and the interface has not been updated to work with the new iPhones. When viewing on larger devices, the app is fuzzy and low resolution, and generally looks terrible. This is not a dealbreaker, but needs to be updated as soon as possible.

- Over heat and battery drain

I have been using Shadowrocket for a month, when I am using it for vpn, the battery is dropping faster than not using it, and when I use certain apps such as instagram and wechat, the phone will get hot. The temperature is even higher than when I play a 3D intense game. Please fix this issue. Thanks. Support for freedom and stand with democracy.

- Warning window lasting too long

It’s a great app but I believe it might be better if the developer shortens the time for the warning window in case of network failure when updating the subscription, for example. While the warning window existing, no action can be made and its quite annoying. Thanks.

- DNS Leak

This app has a great config mode which really helps when you don’t want to pass every url through the proxy. But the problem is when you the config mode, DNS requests are not sent through the proxy and are sent directly through your ISP. This is against any printery advantages that using a proxy might bring. I don’t want my ISP to eavesdrop on my DNS queries. If you care about DNS queries you should only use “Proxy” mode. Or another app that handles this perfectly like

- I love this app, but.. (since ios 11 update)

This app indeed help me so much while living in mainland China, but there’s just one problem, whenever i connect to a wifi and turn on the VPN, it just auto disconnect the wifi and instantly using the 4G connection. Even though i do not turn on any “On Demand Connection” it was normal when in the version ios 10.

- Good, but could be better with WiFi connection.

This software supports Vmess, which is quite useful, but would be better with Kcp feature. Sometimes, when my phone gets connected, my laptop automatically drops if they are connected to the same cat. Should fix it.

- (BUG) Only display the first 3 nodes

I thank the team who have developed this app , this app is really helpful , but there is currently one issue I & other people have been experiencing that I would like to report When you Add more than 3 nodes and you use the app , after a period of time probably one or two months , The app shows only the first 3 nodes and hides the rest. The other nodes are still there but hidden because if you delete one of the first 3 nodes then you will see one of the hidden ones now being displayed. It keeps showing 3 nodes no matter what until you delete the app and install it again. We will be grateful if this issue can be resolved because it happens a lot of times to me and others. Thank you so much.

- Sth wrong with wifi

I have the same problem!! After updating to iOS 11, the app doesn’t seem to work with WiFi. Every time I connect, it automatically disconnects with WiFi and turn to data.... But as others have mentioned, it’s not with every WiFi...but it has problems with my home WiFi so it’s a big problem now to me lol. Plz solve this ASAP, thanks.

- Serious problem with the software.

With 3D touch I press the app and switch. It turns out to open the app. However it should’ve been a fast switch without opening the app. I wondered if it a problem of software. I’m using iPhone 8 with iOS 13. Contact me if u figure out.

- A small problem

Sometimes the connected/disconnected button stays on and cannot be turned off, while the actual status is disconnected. When this happens I can’t use the vpn function, which is annoying. Please fix the bug.

- Have to buy it again on my ipad??

Just bought it on my iphone and it worked as a charm. Now I want to install it on my iPad, too BUT App Store asks me to buy it again! Does this mean the iPad version and iPhone version are two completely different softwares?

- The best vpn software ever in App Store

so many days , it's always update to become a useful and multiple protocols application , and always cheaper than other vpn software , thank you for your patience to make it better and better .

- App stop the proxy by itself

The app is nice but it stop itself after few mins when I have same connection on my Mac OS. There is not any issue on server but the app stop and I had go to app and rentable it myself and after few mins again it stop

- Proxy stopped working

Amazing app, but as of yesterday all servers stopped working. Haven’t given me any difficulties until after the recent update. Is there a way I can fix this problem? I have an iPhone X.

- Bug feedback

In the "Today" view, the widget of shadowrocket can not display the app icon, but displays the icon of a blank file (folded white paper), hoping to fix the bug. The system version is ipadOS 13.5.1. Thanks.

- Great easy to use VPN client

This is a great app to use alongside a do-it-yourself VPN solution like Streisand. Importing profiles is dead simple. If I had one thing I wanted from this app, it would be to support shortcuts. I'd love to be able to have my VPN enable as soon as I tap an NFC tag for instance.

- Hard to connect

It’s hard to connect domestic websites sometimes when turning on the vpn in default config mode and after I turning off the vpn the connections are smooth, try to check the buggy codes there please so that make sure it doesn’t use vpn in config mode while accessing domestic websites

- Safari webrtc leakage

Hello developer. Using VPN can block safari from webrtc leakage, but Shadowrocket can not do that on Safari. Though it can do it on other browsers. This was working fine until your update 4 days ago. My phone is using iOS 12. Please fix the bugs as soon as possible

- Please add support for Real-time Packet sent/received

Hi. The app is wonderful. I love it. Can you please add the support for real-time data transfer so we can know if the server is working properly or not. With most servers, ping works but once we connect to it, it actually not functioning. Having the ability to see if there is data transfer, would really make it easy for user to know which server is working. Thanks.

- Can't work with my phone but works on iPad

For some reason this doesn't work on my phone(under both 4g or wifi), but works fine on my iPad(under the same wifi). Hope you can fix the problem.

- Excellent for school...

I use it every day for using WhatsApp and other apps that doesn’t allow proxies. The best purchase I ever made... highly recommended 💪🏻

- doesn't work with wifi

it doesn't work with wifi when i try to using V2ray......but if i use 4g instead,it works as normal,it seems they previous version doesn't has this problem.

- Different agent service is not the same, some time has not arrived on the server

We hope they can stick to the set time

- Good One

Most of top reviews are one year ago, these don’t help much. I have to say that this app just works well with iOS 12. Thanks to the developer!

- Connection problem

It works very fine but since yesterday not a single node is working.

- After updating it stops working

Used to be fine, after recent update, not working at all

- Problem

After I updated to this version, my phone(13.3) gets very hot just a short while

- Please fix the vulnerability

After this update 2.1.31(777)There was a sudden loss of the link. You need to manually restart the software. After about an hour or so, you will lose all the links again. You need to manually restart it again. I hope to fix it soon!

- first time to purchase APP

thanks for your amazing APP. I like it a lot. and purchased it to support you for better future & better more products. thank God. Betty.

- Perfect!

Finally my personal shadowsocks acc goes online on my iOS device. I was test many apps like shadowrocket but only this one really works 👍🏻

- Apple watch s5 weather app issue

Weather app on apple watch offen stops refresh data or disconnect from iphone while shadowrocket is on. Can you take a look into it please?

- Need to improve performance

This is a great app that allow me to use SS and V2ray (which Quantumult cant do) but this app Is making my iPhone crazy hot (which Quantumult won’t do) I am really hoping that the author could upgrade and fix the performance issue, thanks!

- Can’t work in iOS 11 when sleep

I like proxy share by this app. But now it can’t use when the iPad sleep after it upgraded to iOS 11

- Maybe almost everyone her is not american

it can‘t be true that a person In American need that app

- Sometimes keeps reconnecting after recent update

Sometimes it keeps reconnecting after recent update when connect from today widget. Overall not particular stable in iOS 13. Two stars until more stable. Sorry.

- A fraud

This worked great for almost a month and then it stopped working suddenly. I paid the 1.99 plus 220 yuan (about 33 USD) for 6 months. I tried to contact the creator to see how to fix the problem and he kept ignoring my friend requests on WeChat. Do not purchase. It is a scam, a waste of money- theres no way to get the vpn working or your money back.

- Don’t update

It’s not working at all after I updated with the latest version. The three stars for the past year of good using despite the burning battery problem.

- Fantastic

this is the best shadowsocks client over all platforms. full feature, stable, up to date

- not to update for long time

Why not to update for long time.

- Should be the best choice of VPN

As a Chinese, just can’t simply find a better one to the same kind of apps!

- Why you stop updating

You are not updated for 7 months...

- bug feedback

version2.1.51 in iOS 13.3. the app will always automatically recover to connected status despite that on demand function is off.


This is an amazing VPN manager especially for shadowsocks, got everything you need with incredible features like widget, etc. It really worths $2.99 👍👍

- Nice tool, but runs hot on mine

Consume a great deal of cpu time while running VPN, which cost much battery life and make the device very hot, consistently. Hope this can be solved soon.

- Full function, all methods, high speed

Full function, all methods, high speed

- Cannot show all tip on the iPad

Please fix it on iPad as soon as possible . There is only three servers show on the home page. But it is correct on the iPhone. Use the can show all servers.

- Doesn’t work with WiFi

It used to work well, however, recently this app doesn’t work with WiFi. Whenever I tried to connect, it disconnected with WiFi.

- Working well

Clean, simple and a lot of options. Thanks!

- Deceitful thieving scam artists

Purchased going off the many options & clean interface being a one off payment to only receive an extra $5 charge for upgrading to pro 2 days later. Searched through the app & nowhere can I find where users are notified of an option to upgrade or a setting to requires upgrading. What was I charged for? When am I receiving the funds back.

- Great app for shadowsocks.

Nicely designed app. Still has some bugs but can get the job done

- Useless in China

Says it’s connected but can’t access anything on the internet... Can’t ask for help as they don’t seem to have a help desk. Psiphon works marginally better, i.e. it does connect occasionally for short periods, and it’s free.

- Used to Work well

Around end of 2019 stopped working well in china. Other apps (potatso) worked with the same servers. 5 stars if they fix whatever bug they currently have. I’m in China.

- App bug over heating

Guys after I updated to the latest version , every time I use it , it causes my phone to over heat by a lot! Please resolve this issue !

- 感谢

最近更新后发现 Dashboard 小插件的开关按钮做了一个很棒的调整。感受到开发者的用心了。特意过来留言感谢。 一个小建议。在每一个连接的设置里面,上方的导航栏按钮一个是取消返回,一个是保存返回。其实这个逻辑和 iOS 和 macOS 的使用习惯的不相符的。我试过几次做好了调整,但因为直接按取消返回丢失了调整设置。个人建议做成一个按钮就行。
