Speedafari

On a slow connection? Speed up Safari with Speedafari!

"Kinda crazy, but it works." - Federico Viticci, Macstories.net

Speedafari blocks unnecessary parts of websites from loading. By removing part of the experience (ads, tracking scripts, external fonts, videos, etc.), you save time, battery, and data.

Speedafari is always just a swipe away, in the notification center. Just tap once, and — boom — Safari speeds up. No need to switch browser.

Easily switch between three different aggressiveness levels — low, medium, and high. The higher the aggressiveness, the more will be blocked, and the faster the page will load. Note that some website functions may not work at all with the medium and high levels.

Whitelist the sites you love to support them, by letting them show you ads.

Use the Speedafari URL scheme to toggle speedup and change the aggressiveness, from inside other apps. For example, you can make Speedafari semi-automatically trigger upon leaving home, by using it in combination with the Launch Center Pro app.

Out in the woods? With Speedafari, you don't need to worry about slow internet anymore!

"Speedafari is a blocker that strips away everything it can so you can still load pages even when your connection is crap." - Thorin Klosowski, Lifehacker.com

Oh, and don't worry about privacy! Speedafari has no access at all as to what web pages you visit.

Note that all features are included in the download price, and that in-app purchases are not required to unlock anything. The in-app purchases simply provide a means to voluntarily support the development of Speedafari.

What our users say:

– "You didn't know that you needed this nifty little app until you used it; then, you wondered how you could have gone this long without it! Flawless so far."
– "On its highest level of blocking it eliminates *all* graphics, which is terrific if you have limited bandwidth or just want to get to a site's text. [...] Very useful, unique features make this a must-have for me. Recommended."
– "The ability to quickly turn it on and off and change the aggressiveness through the notification menu is a win win."
– "It works beautifully."
– "One of the best app purchases made"
– "Get it. Quickly."
