Blokada 5.8 for Android - beta

This update improves the Networks feature introduced last week. The detection of current network has been improved, as well as the speed of engine restarts for reconfiguration. Please keep your feedback coming if you are using this feature!

Swedish

We now have complete Swedish translations for both Android, iOS, Web, and our Homepage. Thank you for everyone who keeps our translations awesome. If you wish to translate Blokada to your language, please follow this simple guide.

Other updates

The App Store just received Blokada 5.7 for iOS. This update brings minor stability and UI improvements. As usual, details are available in the changelog.

Just for your information, the last week’s updates of Blokada 5.7 for Android have been accepted by Huawei App Store and Samsung Galaxy Store. We are still waiting for F-Droid (for both Blokada 5.7 and Blokada 4.10), and are fighting with Google Play to accept the location permission needed for the recently introduced Networks feature.

The recap

Just to recap, if you haven’t been following our announcements closely, here are some shortcuts for the newest cool stuff we introduced:

Finally, as usual we updated the blocklists, and translations. We also made some minor bugfixes. More in the changelog.

Keep the feedback coming, and enjoy using Blokada!

Thank you. But the Netflix Unlocked link is broken. It leads to a non-existent page.
Just letting you know.

Hey,
Thank you very much for noticing that.
We’ll adress that later today

Thanks for sorting out the Samsung Galaxy Store :slight_smile:

Could the “Where can I download Blokada” FAQ be updated to list the Galaxy/Huawei stores?

I’ve been checking the iOS App Store all day. This update hasn’t appeared for me. Such a bummer as I’ve been waiting and looking forward to this since the update was released to android users last week.
I’m on iOS 14.4

It can take up to 5 days for approval for the app store, please be patient. Hopefully update will arrive soon.

Well, just updated. Looked around the app, no difference spotted. The changes outlined in the explanation for the network feature post in another thread aren’t there. The app looks different to the Android equivalent and screenshots that were posted

Yes, those changes are Android only.
