App Review: VPN Connections

wadesapp-1I have been using Wade Mealing’s VPN Connections application for a few months now and I am very impressed.  While it took some time to get Exchange support on the G1 (I currently use NitroDesk TouchDown – future app review), I could not take advantage of it until I got a proper IPSEC VPN client.  Enter VPN Connections.

The UI is clean and simple and it allows connections to password and RSA protected VPN concentrators.  If there is a drawback for this application I would say that it’s only because it works on a rooted Android device at the moment.  I have heard, however, that the developer is rumored to be working with Google to develop a production version for stock Android.

The app gives you a network alert anytime the VPN loses connection with the option to reconnect.  I have found this app to work just OK on EDGE but exceptionally well on WiFi and most 3G connections.  This application can be found in the Android Market.
