Reviews
  • Pros: 

    It's so EASY! One button and it does the job!

    Cons: 

    None so far

    I am an English teacher by profession and it's always a must for me to have an unbreakable internet connection. With Edgewise, I can work from home, drive to my university and constantly get internet connection without a break! It seamlessly transitions my Wi-Fi to my 4G internet connection and this is groundbreaking for me. As a non-tech savvy person, this is a Godsend.

    Pros: 

    It's great and actually works!

    Cons: 

    I can't use Cloudflare's 1.1.1.1 while I'm using this.

    I wish I could use a combination of 1.1.1.1 and this product.

EdgeWise connect is based off the same connection bonding technology that we used to make Speedify ( https://www.producthunt.com/post... ). But as Speedify has evolved, we've kept adding features that people wanted until it's become targeted at power users. EdgeWise is a clean start, you don't have to worry about any settings, the whole user interface is one On/Off switch. I think there might be a lesson here somewhere for other product designers...

@alexgizis This seems like a great idea! There’s always a pain point between going from WiFi to data and it especially becomes onerous if I’m in the middle of work or a video call. This could be a great solution to try, nice build! Plus, I love that a certain percentage goes to a good nature cause. 👍🦅

This sounds like magic! 🔮 If I'm in the elevator, would it try to use each wifi it sees on its way and smoothly transition to the next one? 😛

@zelena Yes, what happen is that it will use little bits of cellular (sometimes just for a second or three) to fill in the gaps as your phone switches from one Wi-Fi to another.

@alexgizis I can see there's a VPN icon on my screen after installing the app, why is that?

@alon_keren The way it works, it's actually a bonding VPN. It uses the VPN API to act as middle man for your traffic, and then it has connections on both the cellular and wifi, so it can pick whether to use wifi or cellular from moment to moment.

@alon_keren One of the engineers is a passionate bird watcher, and generally quiet guy. When talking about mission and who we want to be, he launched into a passionate pitch for Project SNOWstorm, and the fate of the snowy owls. It was surprising and beautiful, and when he was done it was clear we'd found our cause. SNOWstorm is a great organization and we're happy to be donating to them to support their work.
Thank you Edgewise! As a person who is not computer wizard, this is super helpful! Not to mention that a part of the proceeds of this application goes to saving owls!
