Lion is an accountability browser for the modern day. Use Lion to add people you trust as partners. These partners will receive an easy to read bi-weekly email of any explicit websites you visit. Using Lion will help reduce the temptation to visit explicit websites, change your browsing habits, and help you live a healthier more productive lifestyle.

• ADD PARTNERS - In a supportive environment we discover strength and positive effects that lead to personal growth.

• ADD YOUR OWN KEYWORDS - Add custom keywords for Lion to track. If a website you visit contains that keyword it will be included in the next log.

• FREE TO TRY - You can use Lion as a regular browser as long as you like. Unlock accountability partners whenever you are ready to make the jump.

• NO MONTHLY PAYMENTS - Don't pay subscription fees. No upgrades or in-app purchases either.

• NO SIGN UP FORMS - Get to browsing right away. Lion does not collect your data and their aren't any forms to fill out.

• OPEN LINKS IN LION - Now you can open links from other apps right inside Lion. Just share the link and "Open in Lion" - you can even do it with search terms!

Pretty solid browser

Browser looks great with the dark theme. Browser is fast and tabs reload quickly.

Some nice to haves would be:
Having auto complete searches in the browser bar.
Something about flick scrolling seems a tiny bit off. I usually notice this when changing directions in scrolling.

Our latest update (4.0) adds Google search auto-complete suggestions. Enjoy!

Feedback for developers

This is an excellent app for browsing. It's by far the fastest and most intuitive browser of its kind.

Here is my primary concern for the developers:
The email that is sent out to my accountability partners is often long and not easy to read. There are a lot of sites that I visit that get flagged inappropriately (including google sometimes) which makes it difficult for accountability partners to keep track of my activities. These false alarms force them to check every site to make sure that it isn't something I shouldn't be visiting. It would be great to see improvement in this area and would be the deciding factor for me to stick with this app and add more accountability partner.

On a side note, a small bug that happens occasionally in the browser is when the page switcher is opened, sometimes the first page dot (at the bottom) is highlighted when it should be the last page causing me to swipe the wrong direction. Not a major problem, but enough of an inconvenience to make a note.

I think this app is going in the right direction quickly and can't wait for future updates.

Sometimes no navigation, Links from texts

I often get links to webpages from friends, which I have to copy and paste into the browser; if I tap the link in the message, the link will not open. If anything, it only allows opening the link in either Google or Safari, both of which I have deleted.

Also, oftentimes I will be browsing and there simply won’t be any navigation toolbar (history, back, forward, etc), which means I have to close out the browser and reopen it.

Otherwise, the app is worth it. I require the accountability and I am happy this browser is available.

Hey C.D.,

iOS now has the option to set a default browser. This will fix all of the issues you have with opening a link from another app. If you go into Lion's settings and tap "Change Default Browser" you can set the default browser to Lion. Please let me know if you have an issues with this by emailing me at

All the best,
