No longer works

BetterNet has been great on and off. I live in China where much of the internet is blocked by the government and using a VPN is the only way around it. At times, BetterNet would connect quickly and work fine, but other times it has tried repeatedly and failed to connect, popping up an apology message every so often while the circles around the face icon pulsed. But for at least the past week or two now, the app does work at all. When I try to connect, an advertisement pops up on the first tap, but nothing else happens. I can close the ad and tap the “connect” button again, but it does nothing - no pulsing circles, no colors, no change in the face icon’s expression, no error messages, no apologies, and no VPN connection. I sent a message, but in the automated reply message, they refused to address the problem because I’m don’t pay for their “premium” service.

Thank you for installing our VPN. We offer two versions: Free and Premium. Our free version allows you to connect to the US server and it's supported by ads. You can use the Free version by skipping the free trial for more information to skip the Free Trial. Contact us through the app: tap the 3-Bar icon, select "Contact Support"

A few problems

I’ve noticed some problems. For example, the majority of the time I need to turn it off when searching something and then turn it back on after it loads. Something about not having permission to the server, even if it’s just a simple google search.
Also, it gets annoying how every two hours it gives me the “turn betties into free time” page even if I’m supposed to get fifteen hours of free time, and that time hasn’t even run out yet. It’s just annoying at this point, and unnecessary. I do however like the fact how it gives you free time every day, but seeing the page for it every two hours isn’t ideal.
Another problem I’ve noticed, is that it tends to make things take forever to load. If I want to use Pandora, but have it on, it takes forever to load. This is for both WiFi and data usage. There’s also certain WiFis I’ve noticed it has some major issues with.

Long story short, this VPN isn’t very useful and has a lot of problems. If you want semi-good, free VPN, then this is great if you’re willing to deal with everything mentioned above. I understand free VPNs aren’t as good as paid ones, but this one is just ridiculous.

Needs improvement...

Okay so the only reason I use this app is because our school’s WiFi blocked basically every social media app that TEENS USE EVERY DAY OF THEIR LIVES. Here’s the deal. Sometimes whenever I open Snapchat the Betternet app just randomly disconnects and then every time I try to send my streaks or even so much as one snap, the VPN app tears up my service and my streaks take decades to send. Sometimes I even have to turn off both the app and the WiFi in order for my snaps to be able to send more quickly. Yeah that doesn’t help either, because sometimes the app reconnects itself even when I’m using data and just makes the service even worse. I’ve also tried deleting and reinstalling the app several times, and it only works on occasion or when I’m on any other WiFi other than the school’s WiFi.

The general gravity of this situation is that this app just ruins my service and I hate it. Every time I’m somewhere where Snapchat is blocked on their WiFi, BETTERNET WORSENS THE SERVICE! IT’S SUPPOSED TO IMPROVE THE SERVICE NOT DETERIORATE IT! It’s called BETTERnet for a reason! This app needs a lot of adjustments.
