VPN On

Screencast

Turning on a VPN is always a painful experience on an iOS device due to the deep nested menus. This App installs a Today Widget into Notification Center which make it possible to turn on a VPN in about 3 seconds(depends on the connection speed). Furthermore, by turning on On Demand feature, the VPN could be automatically connected when you visit any domain specified in this App.

Requirements

Build with Xcode

To compile the project, you may temporarily modify the bundle_id after adding yours into the Apple Developer Center. And then activate the following capabilities of the container App and the Today extension:

  1. Personal VPN
  2. Keychain Sharing
  3. App Groups

Meanwhile, provisioning profiles are required for testing on iPhone/iPad.

Usage

Once you add a VPN configuration you can activate the Today Widget in Notification Center, then turn on the VPN by tapping a switch or flag. You may be asked to allow the installation of a VPN profile for the first time.

Contribution

Issues and roadmap are listed here.

This project follows the gitflow workflow. You'd better create a branch called feature/sth_improved before any major improvements. Meanwhile minor bug fixes are welcomed in the develop branch.

Localization

Please contribute to the Transifex project.
