      better than vpn

      I’m an express user and can’t even use that service more than 5 minutes at home. Socks rocks - get real speeds and virtually no drops = works anywhere and dont even have to wait for a connection. Best is their customer support actually listens and fixes problems - they understand CN users better. App is super easy to set up; youll have some instructions pop up once you download and activate. Takes about 1 minute without a degree in networking. Tip: try to find the non-store app or contact them for that. Will save a little trouble later.

      One Of The Best Apps I Have Ever Used

      I had such a great experience using Shadowsocks for the last couple months. The servers are also so stable with high speed and other great functionalities. I never had a problem using it, and the customer support is always super kind and patient to me. Definitely a five-star+ App!

      Great VPN

      Great easy App to use with excellent customer service support! They reply to me ASAP everytime i need help with the server and even help me retreive my password in mins. I can finally use Google and FB in China without getting any lags or getting kicked out.

      Creepy Ap

      I followed the directions and bought server for $9.99. Now it doesn’t recognize my purchase and wants me to pay again, even though my Microsoft account confirms they charged me. Also I noticed the log on window has a logo that is labeled ‘Kim Jong Un’. Yeah that is the dictator of North Korea. So, perhaps this is a money making scheme for North Korea. I wouldnt trust it. As soon as my purchase goes from pending to active, I am going to cancel. Don’t waster your money!

      I am very happy with this app. The speed is usually really fast and it feels seamless to connect. I would highly recommend to anyone with the same need. This is awesome!
