Pretty Good
Can access several educational sites; has become more limited over time. Supposedly can be expanded if registered by administration-not really an option with our school system.

Timing out is a significant hassle. Add the further hassle of having to go several menus deep to recover, rather than just bookmarking your page.

Don't get this
This is a terrible app for getting around the flash barrier. It's very slow and I can't get on a website that is for educational purposes because there's a message that pops up telling people to thank the owner for the app. I found the app puffin much better for flash use and it is much easier to use then this one, so in my opinion get that. This app is just terrible.

Wish they had subscriptions for schools
Rover is a great idea -- but I am disappointed with their monetization strategy. As a school, we would love to use Rover as a browser replacement, since it both does Flash and content filtering. Instead, we are faced with the choice of a content filtering browser for non-Flash sites, or paying for a non-filtered Flash browser like Puffin. I respect the developer's right to make money. But it seems like it shouldn't be that hard for to create a "school subscription" version that allows filtered access to age-appropriate Flash-based websites. There is such a need for this, and our school would pay for it! But with the limited sites available, Rover's not useful for our school. In addition, I dislike the approach of getting school kids to email the providers and hound them to pay Rover's licensing fees.

Ok but I prefer Zpuffin
I installed Rover due to its ability to display Flash content. I find the Puffin browser far better and easier to use. I've not yet figured out Rovers approach to using bookmarks (favorites). I guess Rover is meant for use mainly in grade schools.
