    Ads can be annoying, but it is even worse to find out that 3 or 4 of the videos you wanted to watch are not available in your region. Aloha not only blocks ads, but it also has a built-in VPN so you can bypass regional restrictions.

    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...

    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!

    I downloaded this browser because i needed a functioning browser for viewing the hub and to stream pirated movies on 123movies, but ive come to making this my default browser finally switching from brave after they stopped giving us the option to keep our earned BAT coins and im so so glad i had done so at the end of the day. I love the GUI and the depth of the customization and the variety of settings to tweak around n play with till it's perfect for you. Love the desktop view capability, actually works. The app redirect on/off switch is utterly fantastic, truly shows how the dev team has gone above and beyond for us. As for the premium features, i was extremely lucky to be fortunate enough to begin my premium experience for only $5 on new years day a couple years back and i still to this day only pay $5 a year for access to the vpn service and everything else it has to offer. Thank you aloha!!!

  • Terrible glitch! May 26, 2019

    By Lishae13
    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!

    I only gave it 4 stars and not 5 for one reason and one reason only. It might not be a big deal to others but the irony isn’t lost. So upon opening the app you have the ability to have a news feed like most browsers at the bottom and you can customize this to your hearts content. The problem I have with this feature is that it’s powered by MSN! Yes Microsoft! Why would I want a Microsoft product on my iPhone? You claim to be all about privacy but with that one feature built in you’re still giving away any security you may have with a piece of that company built in... they track everything regardless of what you may think. Unfortunately in this day and age you don’t have any privacy on the web! None what’s so ever! Your carrier knows what you do with your phone and what you look at on the web, there’s no way around that period. But I digress, it’s a good alternative to others but it isn’t really blocking much from the big players, only certain websites

    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!

    WiFi file sharing doesn't work at all. I've tried scanning QR code and entering the address manually but it just refuses to connect. I tried on THREE different devices in all the possible combinations and none of them connected to each other. I'm on the same network and everything. This is extremely frustrating. For reference the devices are Huawei P20, Samsung S21 and IPad 5th generation

    Doesn't work anymore. This app used to be great but with the recent update everything was ruined. It shows "cannot find website" on every site that I type, including just going to default google page. Uninstalling. So disappointed.

    Description says, "surf in an ad free environment" but it injects its own ads all over. It also talks about "privacy" but then tracks you.

    Developer says Aloha Lite does not support password managers like LastPass and Bitwarden because it's a simplified browser with limited functionality, so I decided to give the full-featured Aloha Browser a try. Guess what, it's no different! Uninstalling.
  • new update is a no Jan 25, 2018

    By hphxmm
    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.

    This app is trash it downloads the same video multiple times even though I had requested it to download a different one.I tried different approaches and the result was still the same what a waste it time and data.I would not reccomend it to anyone.
  • I used to love this app... Aug 10, 2019

    By ric6sic6
    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 Feb 10, 2018

    By Bill2go
    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.

    Ads can be annoying, but it is even worse to find out that 3 or 4 of the videos you wanted to watch are not available in your region. Aloha not only blocks ads, but it also has a built-in VPN so you can bypass regional restrictions.

  • Restore Purchase Malfunction Nov 6, 2019

    By BPa2c
    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... Sep 21, 2018

    By ChadDuckster
    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.

  • A Great Browser But Could Be Better, Needs Updating Oct 8, 2020

    By MistaBobobo
    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.
  • ABSOLUTELY GREAT BROWSER Except For One Thing Oct 16, 2019

    By WheelsintheJIC
    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.

    By Best reviewer for you
    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.
  • Almost Everything I Need in a Browser Mar 30, 2020

    By Bobby Nickleshmitt
    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.
  • Great features, easy to use... Nov 17, 2018

    By Kevin Hamby
    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.
  • Pretty good...ads suddenly showing Aug 24, 2020

    By lanieann7
    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.
  • Suspicious Behavior Nov 30, 2019

    By milkywayinhabitant
    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.
  • Desktop View and Zoom Out Needed Feb 7, 2019

    By TreyJohnsonMN
    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!
  • Good Until It’s Not. Feb 4, 2018

    By RMVG03
    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 Aug 20, 2018

    By SnwmB
    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!
  • 1 thing Feb 27, 2018

    By Joseph :D
    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 !
  • Background play is working but is choppy Jan 8, 2020

    By The meliodas
    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?
  • They share your IP with partners Jan 26, 2018

    By Gabby Graham
    In their privacy policy they acknowledge that they allow partners companies to log your IP address. Here is a quote from their website: “Some of our selected partners might log your actual IP details. Said selected partners apply same privacy and confidentiality provisions as ourselves.” If you care a lot about privacy, this may be a problem for you, but if you’re simply trying to get past Wifi/location restrictions you probably won’t mind. I do not believe they share or log browsing history. REPLY TO DEVELOPERS: Thanks for taking the time to respond. I am a bit overly cautious with privacy and I just prefer to have my IP shared with as few people/companies as possible. — I noticed that the news on the new tab page of the browser seemed to be showing me local-specific news from my actual location. I had the VPN on and its IP was from another state. I also had location services off. Does the news feed bypass the VPN or is it one of the partners that is allowed to see/log it? Thanks.
  • Would say i love the app but... Sep 23, 2018

    By BrandonWood1234567890
    Had this app on my iphone 7+ and wrked great for over a year. But just recently got the iphone XS max and downloaded on here. And for some reason it has a different video player and i cant for the life of me figure out how to get the same one i have on my 7+. It works way better and buffered ALOT less. If there is any way to change to that one. It would be perfect still. But for now with this other video player that buffers. I would say its just alright. Definitely got me a little upset. If there is a way to switch players please let me know. Because ive tried everything i can think of.
  • Bottom half the screen keeps cutting off Nov 20, 2018

    By AJ2KXX
    Overall I like this browser, but I’m on an iPhone 8, and dozens of times a day, it’ll just load a page halfway and then the bottom half will be cut off. Sometimes a fully loaded page will just randomly reload itself that way. This wouldn’t be such an issue, if not for the fact that when this happens, no other site will load correctly and I have to restart the entire browser. A fix would be awesome, because other than that it’s my favorite browser, but it realllllly brings things down.
  • new update is a no Jan 25, 2018

    By hphxmm
    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.
  • Unreliable & slow Feb 10, 2018

    By Bill2go
    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.
  • New version a downgrade May 26, 2021

    By Stubby351
    For people like me who use Aloha primarily for the private browsing, this new version is completely unusable. In the old version, to access the private browsing tabs, there was a small unremarkable icon that you had to press to open. Anyone not already familiar with the Aloha app would never know what it was for. In the new version, however, they got rid of the unremarkable secret icon for private browsing, and replaced it with a button labeled “Private”. Seriously. A button labeled “Private.” Right there for anyone to see. Turned an otherwise phenomenal private browsing app into a totally useless piece of software. Up until this week I would have rated this 5 stars. Now I’m giving it 2 because at least the VPN is decent. So sad. Somebody wasn’t thinking.
  • Unnecessary Tab Management Change May 20, 2021

    By pepega0811
    Latest 3.2 update is a downgrade in terms of tab interface. Previously you were able to hold the tab button in the bottom right corner and you’d open a new tab directly after the one you were just on. This was incredibly useful if you have a lot of tabs and wanted to jump back and forth between two or more related tabs without having to scroll too much. This also made up for the lack of ability to reorganize your tabs. Now when you hold the same button a new tab starts directly at the end of all your tabs. This is a major inconvenience and I can’t use this browser until it’s brought back or a setting/flag can be set to switch between the two behaviors.
  • Cannot currently recommend Jan 4, 2020

    By NYEH HEH HEH
    2 updates ago, no matter if you actually had the option enabled, you can no longer play videos in the background. This means videos will only play while the Aloha app is open. In addition, if you try to open settings while a video is playing, the app will just flat out crash. I'll keep the app installed in hopes this is soon fixed, but I don't plan on ever using it until a patch of some sort comes out. Edit: I'm on the current version of Aloha and have no prompt on the App Store to update the app. This behavior with the video player as well as the crash are still present.

    WiFi file sharing doesn't work at all. I've tried scanning QR code and entering the address manually but it just refuses to connect. I tried on THREE different devices in all the possible combinations and none of them connected to each other. I'm on the same network and everything. This is extremely frustrating. For reference the devices are Huawei P20, Samsung S21 and IPad 5th generation

    Doesn't work anymore. This app used to be great but with the recent update everything was ruined. It shows "cannot find website" on every site that I type, including just going to default google page. Uninstalling. So disappointed.

    By Ronnel Caluag
    Developer says Aloha Lite does not support password managers like LastPass and Bitwarden because it's a simplified browser with limited functionality, so I decided to give the full-featured Aloha Browser a try. Guess what, it's no different! Uninstalling.

    This app is trash it downloads the same video multiple times even though I had requested it to download a different one.I tried different approaches and the result was still the same what a waste it time and data.I would not reccomend it to anyone.
  • I used to love this app... Aug 10, 2019

    By ric6sic6
    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.

  • Continues to get worse Dec 14, 2018

    By Shad0wL0rd
    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.
  • Lots of bugs after premium purchase. Feb 20, 2020

    By Neelyfbaby
    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.
