    I've been a big fan for years, but my phone quickly becomes unusable because of this bug. I see a fix pending in the beta code, but it's been weeks! Please, I don't want to have to choose between security and a usable phone anymore!

    Nice app. But can not block sub connections of particular app.we should able to block only Add connections of the app. If you can do this small change then I'll give 5 stars :-)

    Great great app! I watch weekly for updates; however, the last few builds had extreme problems on wakelock/battery due to AF Log Service, so had to uninstall. Worst though is before removing, I set IPtables to original; flushed; then original again, and they're still stuck to a phantom AF Profile that was stuck weeks ago and no amount of work will revert/remove it. PS: Please add option to clean
