Good News Everyone!

We have just pushed Covenant Eyes for Android Version 1.99.36

This is our first beta release in a long time, and we really appreciate the feedback and support you all have provided while we have been working on it. 

Here are the release highlights!



Version 2.99.36
________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Updated the TMS (VPN) engine that is driving the app.
  • Expect faster performance & greater stability.
  • This was a whale of a job. Seriously, our dev team created a superior engine from scratch.
Updated the Visual layout of the install process.
  • Expect fewer visual glitches & easier use.
Found and promptly squashed a few common crashes
  • Expect fewer crashes. The ones you do find may look the same, but they are likely new.

Please update to this version and let us know how it works. We are now at a stage where we can start actively troubleshooting & polishing the software, which cannot happen without your help.

Once you have tried the new version please post your results here for us to talk through.




Many thanks again for your patience.

Hey Folks,

We've got another build for you all to try.

This is build 2.9.9.41ao

This is an experimental build that should clear up many of the VPN related issues that you have been experiencing. Most notably:

No VPN Reboot Cycle
No MMS/SMS Bugs
No Double Data Usage
Reduced Battery Usage

As you may have guessed, this version we have removed part of the engine (the VPN part) to continue to tweak it and refine it's performance. The VPN will return, but we wanted to see if this hybrid version would make a potential release candidate in the meantime.  The app will still monitor...

Chrome
Chrome Beta
YouTube
Facebook
Twitter
Google Search
Browser

Please feel free to use this version and provide feedback on your experience.

Thanks
