Edit2: Thanks for your feedback Dev. Most people do not really know how to use a firewall, don't have NFlog capable kernel, and are complaining about logs, should really learn how to use iptables. This app is GREAT, in conjuction with a VPN based Firewall like NoRoot. That said, waiting to see what you come up with next. Edit: Review changed. Although it allows LAN vs WAN IP Blocking, It does NOT allow you to block Individual pesky connections. So you either Block EVERYTHING or Nothing. There is no Middle ground. I suggest you guys check out NoRoot Firewall because that one defeats this by a mile. I thought I liked this app at first but its a Yes or No deal when it comes to a connection. That is not suitable in today's world where each App can make tens if not hundreds of connections and some of those must be allowed while others blocked. Nice try but I am now giving this only 2 stars.
