CNET Editors' review
From the name, you might think VPN Express is another VPN connectivity client. But you'd be wrong. VPN Express is a VPN, but only between your iOS device and the VPN Express servers. Through that server, your location and identity can be masked. Think of it as a proxy server for your iDevice. Installation is quick and the free app includes 300MB of traffic (one shot only) after which you pay for data transfers either in GB or in days used.
VPN Express can be used to hide your online identity and also to access sites that might be blocked in your area or by your provider for some reason. The connection uses 128-bit encryption (good but not great) and is quite fast, but there is a delay while accessing a site or service directly that is noticeable occasionally. Still, to reach sites you can't normally reach, or to keep your identity private, VPN Express is a good alternative to standard Web-based proxy services.
We used VPN Express without a hitch to access sites all over the Web, and in some countries where access to some sites is controlled or blocked, this is a solid workaround. The data rates are not cheap once you get in the habit of using VPN Express, but for casual users it may be a solid alternative. The ease with which VPN Express works, and the protection it offers, will be highly appealing for some users.

VPN Express does exactly what, when, & how I need it for a very reasonable price. Best one out there!" Feb 27, 2012 by tjsmsmith"Awesome VPN! - We just got back from China for an adoption trip and we used this app all the time. After setting up the special setup for mainland China at home, it worked like a charm and we never had a problem with it. Nice price, too, for the permanent amount of data transfer. We used up the free part and got into the paid part but it didn't cost that much so will continue to use this VPN whenever I have the need." Jan 22, 2012 by Neil.D"100% Perfect. 100% of the Time - This is the best VPN solution I have used. It's on my Mac, iPad and iPhone and can be used simultaneously! The pricing plans are awesome as well. Saves me a bundle." Jan 11, 2012 by Anthony Martinez"Simple, efficient VPN. It just works. - Very easy to use with auto-configure setting. I use this all the time, and find it is great when traveling internationally or when I want greater wifi security in coffee shops. Recommended." Oct 17, 2011 by Computer Bear"VPN Express - This app is great. Skype was blocked at the hospital where my son was in the NICU. My family and friends could not always travel the 150 mile round trip with us to see the baby. The hospitals IT director was asked to unblock Skype several times. He would not. With this app I went around the firewall. I highly recommend this app."

"Not completely private"
Version: VPN Express - Best Mobile VPN Solution For Blocked Websites 2.3.1
I found it quite easy to install if you follow the instructions. Worked immediately with no problems. Masked my IP effectively.
They do keep logs and pass data on to 3rd parties. They are honest about that so it's no good for whistle blowers or Chinese dissidents!
It's a good option if you don't mind some data collection for commercial purposes - but that completely negates the reason for using a VPN. I don't want any tracking at all. I want my privacy.
