App is fully accessible, only strange thing I have found is if you tap help, the button to close it is called multiplication symbol but that's the only issue I have found so far.

Apple does provide a built in way to connect to vpn networks, however this doesn't support connecting via the open vpn protocol.

So that's why this client has been released, I think you would use it to connect specifically to open vpn networks.

I found the easiest way to import my configuration profile was to use iTunes and then select the app from the list of apps that could do file sharing and click the add button.
