Reviews From google play store

Alright. I dont know whats happening recently but I have been using puffin for the past 3 years & this problem as never occured until now. I can no longer access quick controls which is annoying, it keeps crashing and now you want us to pay you money on a app which was free this entire time? Its irritating to be unable to use this apps features while having ads 24/7 on us buying pro & nonsense. You guys need to update! Like seriously, its a amazing app but its starting to fall. Please do update!

This app works perfectly fine! But when I try to press a button, it won't work. I still like this app alot and please fix it. I would give a 5 but when I press a button it won't work. This app is very good. I bet it took alot of work and you made it like Google or Chrome. Hope you have a great time!

it works fine, but whenever i play a game on it, it's constantly crashing at the worst times. also, whenever you try and zoom in, the quality gets so bad a pixelated. im constantly having to refresh my page, and its just so frustrating. please fix all of this

Drops and restarts, spent quite a bit of time setting up games only to have the game freeze and have it say "network unstable..reconnecting" which at that point it restarts the game from the beginning. No other browsers have an issue just puffin.

Puffin is a very decent app for playing flash games, although it doesn't completely get rid of lag, it does a very decent job of doing so. Although there are some glitches that can be very frustrating i've always used this app to play a game thats way too laggy on Chrome.

The reviews say it all. Lack of privacy. So you can pay £4.59 to disable location tracking but you can't use the free version to get a feel for the app without sacrificing privacy. So that equates to a big no. Can't imagine what the developers were thinking.

I used this to browse flash content on Newgrounds, and it does what it says. Not sure how it works with things that require a keyboard, but the point and click games you can use your touchscreen on your phone for

The app failed to initialize because I opted out of sharing usage & crash statistics. That therefore appears to be a requirement rather than an option which is quite unfortunate. For that reason, I unistalled it. I don't take my privacy for granted.

It is ridiculous that this app wants my location and refuses to work without it. There is no reason for this. Location may be able to improve some functionality, but I should be able to use it without those improvements. This is a completely unnecessary invasion of privacy.

It was great up until they start introducing ads that are spamming just a little too much. Cant go to any pages without having to wait 30 seconds.

Everytime I fullscreen on youtube it puts this screen over it showing my how to seek and turn brightness up and I have no way of closing it. And when I close out of the browser and go back on it, it just stays at the "Puffin Web Browser" screen and freezes.

After much careful and deliberate thought, I have come to an informed conclusion that this particular app was deserving of a five star rating because, in my humble opinion, it's the shiznit!

This is redicules, every time I get on the app it always says that "Puffin Web Browser has crashed" . And then the app just shuts off. It's very frustrating....

If on a network that blocks adds etc. it crashes instantly on startup. On a Nexus no less. Gotta have location tracking or they would rather let the app crash. Spyware.

Hey, your browser is great now i could play flash games on my mobile with ease, with the gamepad built in in the browser and the features that on your browser cannot be find on other browser so keep it up! Good Job!!!!

The app was great but it started to crash,i have a s9 running pie and it continues to crash,even if you unistalled and reinstalled it continues.Please fix this bug,and perhaps i will buy the full version.

loading sites usually lags and takes way too long, it's probably a bug, some other browsers work alright, but they don't save data like yours do, yet still if it can't load sites in time then what's the point?

YouTube videos aren't being downloaded from puffin apps. This is a great problem I want to solve this problem very quickly. If you do not download YouTube video again, it is a great problem to solve the problem. Thanks.

Can't scroll with an air mouse on a Android box. Tried different air mouse on different box but the result is the same.A year and a half ago it was working fine.

Why did you stopped old version to transfer coin anf make coin, please again show old 8 ball pool function so that we can use puffin as much as we can and if you won't we will stopped using it soon. I give 5 star rating for old version.

Ads are everywhere. Plus, not all browser are pixel perfect for my taste. If you hate ads and no pixel perfect browser don't bother w/ this app

This app let you open the blocked website with ease and without using any VPN app (although you need to watch some ads on some websites). The control and overall use are pretty much good.

Puffin uses video ads that are too long so I tend not to use it. Deleted after last forced update and a 30 second ad. Requirement of my location is a big NO

I am running this on a stock Galaxy S2 Tablet (Wifi only) and it is so slow that it's unusable. I live in San Francisco proper and have an average of 400 Mbps download speed (Comcast up to 500 Mbps).

Recent version forces me to enable GPS. That"s a big privacy issue. I"ll just downgrade to the older version.

While it tends to freeze making almsky everything on screen unresponsive, this is quite good! Great for mobile flash playing and games too. Plus, it's very fast.

ive never had any problems with it, no freezing, no pixilation, no "your browser does not use flash" blah blah blah, perfect for everything

Its Good. Its Like Chrome But Has Things That Chrome Doesnt. Like The Gamepad. Mouse. Keyboard. Many Other.

Not happening anything radicolous apps.. asking more and more questions to sign email While i was signing for IBPS..it cant be done, useless it was so annoying.

Good browser but creaters need to add forward and backward option for pages with swipe option as others browsers in market have. they should add download resume/pause option as well

Do NOT use this app to play flash games, it does not work well at all incorrectly reading the user inputs. very bad.

Why the youtube studio should not open on it in Dekstop mode?it show loading and loading so please fix that problem soon.

Awful. No home button. Can't disable speed dial or delete certain sites. Won't run without enabling location.

Trash app. Forces you to watch ads and give out your location. Only reason why I am using it, is stupid websites still use flash player.

It’s good for browsing at high speed but really laggy, sometimes touch issue.

Was 5 stars but the app is now slow to respond and every single time flash loads you must was a 30+ second ad. Pure unusable garbage now

Why in the unholy f*** is my location required from a browser app. Garbage. Will be finding a new alternative to flash compatible browsing.

Thx for making this! I can play games on mobile that I should only be able to play on pc!

Slow and forces u to watch an ad before u can use flash and flash doesn't even work half the time

Best web browser for youtube. Really it provides very faster browsing any website.

Sometime user interface become unresponsive hangs a lot of time. Please resolve asap otherwise good app.

Love Puffin! Its so much more helpful then my normal browser! Its faster, easy, safe and Very well made! 5 stars!

Works quite smoothly...........Only one complain........U should add pause option in download section.......... That's all....... ✌✌😒🙏🙏

It open site as same as pc in desktop mode,also open site which need extra vpn.

The best option so far if you want to use Flash on mobile. The experience is not the smoothest but I can't really complain too much

good app .It allows me to acess some of the websites that requires online submission of exams.

As advertised by them, it is really really fast. I wish it was also available in linux os.

Recently the app doesn't work and the pages doesn't load although my internet connection is good

Safe, private? Please allow location? So what's the point of requiring users to enable location on a web browser after saying its focused on privacy. You shot yourself in the foot by requiring anything more than basic permissions for a web browser. No thanks.

honestly it used to be good until they put a trash update where you need to watch ads to do literally anything

why your browser not block any Ads I on the adblock option also But still all ads are coming from all website Worst experience

Doesn't work without giving permission for location services. No thanks.

You can't even use the browser unless you enable location permissions. Super shady right off the bat.

Ur not getting my location info. Also not allowing me to disable location permission means sites can exploite ur browser and find my exact location. Uninstalled forever.

It's an excellent web browser... Thank you very much 🙂

The app is great ,but they should put a multiple controller for the gamepad

The app is great..... But their no pause and resuming in the download option.

Awsome but downlode issue. 2nd star for solving previous issue.

Terrible and unresponsive on android tablet. Worse since last update

It's quick and simple. Fairly easy to use as well.

I love this browser because it enable flash player.

Works good, ads not hard to watch

Why this app want my live location its bad thing If this feature is removed in next update it will be better app for browsing.

everything is good except one thing , it keeps crashing

It's pretty cool I guess, but the forced location thing is bogus.

Runs flash solid. The best browser

Best browser. HTML editing etc.

puffin doesn't provide the option to download using external downloader such as adm...please fix this prb so i can download using ADM

Hi developer plz add the feature of webpage saving for offline use.....thnx

I love it when I play on it because it has no ads

Love it no problems fast easy to understand

Only for the ability to load website in desktop mode

It started to crash after 5 sec

They refuse to let you use the app if you prefer not to disclose your location. Completely useless and unusable and worthless app.

Good app but pleaese show thing in mobile version not in desktop version

Best browser in the world please don't ever change your existing features these only makes you unique 😍

More IMPROVEMENT, Toolbar Can't Hide...

Downloaded this app so I could play flash-based games on my phone. But you can't use the app unless you agree to all their demands for your information

What the hell is this? NO i dont want you to get my location. Thees no reasoning to this and the app refuses to let me use it if i dont let them invade my privacy. Bullcrap!

This is really very good app when we download any app so my apps downlaod very fast i like th is

Really good app browser for applying notifications

Why I cant open fb pages via puffin web browser

Garbage browser. Immediately hit with an ad the second flash content is loaded, demands location access to use, and not nearly as fast as they claim. They clearly paid for the articles touting their advantages. I'm not waiting 30 seconds to view an ad for flash content I don't even want to interact with.

The only one that works! So far puffin is the best mobile browser based flash loader so far! I've tried numerous other apps but this is the only one that truly works. Although this is great there are a few issues I've come across, first is the speed and ability to have a 'stable connection'. On first installation playing games and loading pages is very fast, but after a day or so it slows down. It also constantly give me 'connection error' which forces me to reload the page. Losing all progress.

Won't respond after opening multiple tabs !! Not recommended !!

I used to enjoy using this browser because I was able to play games on it and give friends items they needed, but now they demand to know where I am in order to use their browser. I don't appreciate that! I don't want to give my location to every single thing I want to use! If I just want to play a video game, why do they need my location? I can understand a map needing my location, but not a browser! Have they lost all respect for our privacy? I thought Puffin was BETTER THAN THIS!

Keeps force closing after an hour or so

This website is really freaking good. Sometimes you have to deal with ads but anyways it's super good. Also it'll keep asking you to switch to pro but I always ignore it cause I'm poor and that's the only down side anyways this website browser does everything that would be there on desktop for you mobile. It's cool!

Not gonna lie, but lately its been very.. slow. And I can tell by the recent reviews that its happening to a lot of people. Ive been crashing, getting disconnected, and its slow. I think its time that I finally part ways with this app 😔 Ive been using this app for 6 years(not lying) And I used this app everyday. Not anymore. I started using Dolphin web browser.

Shakey! I installed because it was recommended as a secure and private browser. It’s not! The browser will not run unless it is given full access to locations permissions. Privacy settings are lacking in my opinion. The bowser forces a choice between four default search engines; Google, Bing, and two forign ones. Lastly, the browser crashes A LOT!!!

It's hard to recommend this app to anyone concerned about their privacy. It requires the users not only to consent to having their location accessed, something I didn't even allow Google to access, but usage data being sent to the publisher before you can even use the browser. Nearly every other service has set that standard that these are to be optional. It's unfortunately the only browser I'm aware that can run a particular site I use properly.

I like using this Web browser! It's fast and easy to use because it's just in your pocket, but I have a complaint about it that's been happening to me multiple times. it keeps crashing over and over fo no reason! It's like its fast, but slow and immediately crashes. Not sure what's going on, but if you'd fix this, I'd give it a 4 or 5 star rating. Overall though, good app to use!

It is very nice app, I was very satisfied with it, from past couple of months, I am facing problems of downloading even the smallest size file. Even if it is in 50Kb size unable to download it. It take hours to download kB sized file and at last it fails. Other wise I would have given it 5 star.

The UI is unbelievably ugly for a 2019 browser

So far, the app works ok. However, it's only earned 2 stars, due to absolutely requiring the location permission to use. After initial setup, if you disable the location permission, reopening the app requires you to re-enable the location permission before proceeding. Disable the need for location, and it's easily a 5-star app.

Puffin is one of the most fastest browser that I have tested, it does it so well that just switching from game or from minimized will trigger a refresh page. Since there is no ad block, It even refreshes the ads on the page which will consume more data. This would have been great if not for the constant refresh. Other browsers have a refresh button to check for updated content. I prefer the other browsers instead.

5 * is a lie. read the reviews. more complaints than you can shake a stick at. forced to down load this for a class I needed to take. still won't open flash player, something about hacked. well I don't down load apps. only one I downloaded was this. hope it doesn't screw up my phone. I am ticked off...

I had to uninstall this app and reinstall it, because it would crash every time I tried to open the app, but all and all it's a great browser. I used Dolphin for a few years, but had to drop the browser do to adobe flash player not working anymore for that browser on my tablet. I had to find a browser that already had flash built into it. This one was the one I came across and I'm satisfied with this browser. I had to take one star away due to the crashing though.

It will be good if developers try to fix these: 1. Changing between tabs is not smooth and fast both in terms of response time and graphic rendering (compared to other browsers like Chrome) and for an app claiming to be "wicked fast" it is not good to be slower than its competitors in that section. 2. The video playing for Youtube videos is very bad.Unusable actually! No double tap to jump 10 seconds in video, no subtitle selection menu and browser hangs if you try to change screen brightness.

Little to much ads.

approximate location (network-based)
Allows the app to get your approximate location. This location is derived by location services using network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine approximately where you are.

precise location (GPS and network-based)
Allows the app to get your precise location using the Global Positioning System (GPS) or network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine where you are, and may consume additional battery power.

view network connections

view Wi-Fi connections
Allows the app to view information about Wi-Fi networking, such as whether Wi-Fi is enabled and name of connected Wi-Fi devices.

prevent phone from sleeping
Allows the app to prevent the phone from going to sleep.
