Mobicip Earns 4.5 Stars and "Must Buy" Recommendation in AppAdvice review!

SUREN on November 05, 2009

Here is a great review by Hayden Wreyford at AppAdvice.com. You can see that the Hayden has not only used Mobicip extensively, but also understands the pain points experienced by users. Some excerpts below, and original article here.

Mobicip is a content-filtered browser that looks and behaves very, very close to that of Safari.

In using Mobicip, I was very impressed with how quickly pages loaded. Navigating tabs and setting/using bookmarks is nearly identical to Safari and as I have used Mobicip, it’s been easy to forget I am not actually using Safari. That is, until you hit a site that contains inappropriate content, at which point you get to talk to the proverbial hand. It’s great that Mobicip blocks websites that contain content with obviously questionable content.

The Verdict

I sought out reviewing this app because I know a lot of people in my social circles who love the concept of the iPhone and iPod Touch, but who are understandably nervous about putting these devices in the hands of their kids…or husbands, for that matter. Yeah, I think adults will benefit as much from Mobicip as any child would. Content filtering is not just for the kiddies.

Now, I totally understand that many users wouldn’t dare use an app like this because the concept of content filtering doesn’t appeal to them. But for those whom the concept does appeal to, Mobicip is a lifesaver, and for a paltry $5, it’s an absolute must-have. And for what it’s worth, it has completely replaced Safari on my iPhone.
