#13453 new defect

circular link, outdated info on orbot info page

Reported by: vvn Owned by: n8fr8
Priority: Low Milestone:
Component: Applications/Orbot Version: Android (Orbot): 1.0.0
Severity: Normal Keywords: website, chatsecure, gibberbot, tor, proxy, transparent, polipo, privoxy, android, webpage

page I'm referencing is:

fixes should be made in the 4th paragraph, the section outlining features after the screenshot:

★ PRIVATE CHAT MESSAGING: Use Gibberbot with Orbot to chat confidentially with anyone, anywhere for free. Get Gibberbot:!

been awhile since it was called gibberbot, hasn't it? should probably change that to chatsecure

★ PRIVACY FOR APPS: Any installed app can use Tor if it has a proxy feature, using the settings found here:

The short url unmasks to the exact page it's on. Seeing as there are multiple possibilities (localhost: 9050, localhost 9040, localhost 8118, and http/https/socks4/socks4a/socks5) and no real explanation of the proper proxy configuration, there should be at least a section with that info and how they are connected to each other, because sending everything through tor doesn't work, and there is a bug in the individual apps selection I will detsail in a separate ticket if it hasn't yet been reported that makes the option virtually unusable.
