    Any advantage in purchasing it over using the free version?

    I think it is a much better app than Puffin.

    Doesn't it log you out after 60s of use?

    So the main reason to purchase it would be to not have it auto kick your connection.

    Hep, n that's sux to. It keeps coming with the pop up message saying to buy the app. It should be anyone who had the app previously shouldn't have to buy it since we already had it. Only new people installing it after the change should have to pay. If u keep canceling it'll let u mess around on the web but it's seeming like too much of a hassle now. I don't use it much, only to check a few sites I can't normally, that run on flash. Not worth me buying, IMO, if it's not gonna be my main browser or numb 2 one.

    The app itself is free, but to use it properly, you have to make an in-app purchase.

    I wanted to use it for Zoodles site for my toddler and it says I have to download the Flash player for the games to work so I just don't use it anymore. I think what it is I bought it on sale for .99 and all the proceeds went to Japan victims and now they want their other $2 cuz it keeps saying buy for $2.99.I actually got to use all the features the day I bought it and found Zoodles wont work.

    I bought it to watch south park studios... When you get to the actual movie stream it works great, but getting there is such a pain, terrible browser, extremely laggy and slow

    It auto kicks you out even if you have bought the app. This happens when you are playing videos and then a message comes up saying due to prolonged inactivity, the connection is closing. The way I get around that is every five minutes I have to tap the keyboard icon in the app and then tap it off again. That way the video keeps playing.

    It is faster than Puffin but iSwifter is wifi only while Puffin can be accessed through 3g as well. It is not of much use if it is only going to be wifi.

    The prompt that comes up about purchasing after you have already purchased it happened to me. I hit purchase again and got the message that I had already purchased it and it has functioned uninterrupted since.

    iSwifter Issue

    I purchased this app and like others it kicks me out after approx 10 min of use due to inactivity. I tried tapping the screen every few minutes, but then an error box pops up in the middle of the screen which reads "Unable to connect to iSwifter". Then the video stops and I'm taken back to the home page. Does anyone have any suggestions for watching a full video? I deleted the app and reinstalled it. Problem is still there. I also contacted the developer, but have not heard back from them.
