I’m trying out ‘Covert Browser’ on the iPad. It’s not a cheap app at £1.99 but I can’t find anything else Tor enabled in the official app store.
If the integration of the open source version of Tor is working correctly then this app should offer not only unmonitored Internet browsing but also access to content that is blocked because of your ip’s geographical position.
I have just tested the app on my iPad by watching a video from ColbertNation.com. Normally blocked in the UK, the site loaded fine and the videos i tried played without delay or issue.
Although the app has a few things it needs to iron in the design department, I can see this becoming a handy tool for anyone with an iPad that doesn’t want to mess around with VPN’s and proxy’s and would much rather just click on an app.
If you do live in a country where content is regularly blocked it may be worth you opting for something less browser based by adding some VPN settings into your phone from RaptorVPN.com

I have an Android phone, I think an Android tablet would be both cheaper and offer more options for someone looking to use the TOR network etc..
Hi Dom. I have not found a tablet that works as well as the iPad but Apples restrictions on apps etc are a constant frustrations. I’d love to learn more about these kind of app options for android devices.
