Hi

After using this app for a while I can safely say it's much, much improved and a real contender for replacing OpenVPN for Android.

It's disgustingly fast at connecting - try turn off WiFi and turn on, it connects faster than you can reload the page!

The settings are really nicely organised, and are simple enough to understand, enough technical settings for finer grained control.

I would like to reconnect to a different server every so often, and a quick settings toggle or some faster way of switching servers - there's still friction with the login process having to give a code (fingerprint would be better or something much faster :) ).

Overall, very nice application, I'm not sure how you'll continue improving it since it's pretty good at this point.
