- Innovative navigational menu with controls and "scroll to top" button that will show and hide based on your mouse position

Ratings and Reviews
Doesn't save passwords, breaks websites
I thought this might be a good solution for my office's time tracking portal. I was wrong.
• Safari passwords are not supported, so you have to re-type your login information. Everything. Every. Single. Time.
• The webpage doesn't even fully load. The title bar shows up, but none of the content. I know this is potentially a weird website bug, but there are no issues in any other browser I've tested.
Simply put, AppGenome doesn't work. Don't waste your money.
Good idea but really doesn’t work.
There are several issues, and even if it worked well the application is much too limited to be worth using. You can just save a bookmark if all you need is 1 single site. It doesn’t save the width in the settings of your site wich means you can’t use sites that are wider than 500px.. + it comes with no manual. Trying to find the settings that only pop up if you hover over the exact right place is a bit too invisible. If issues were fixed and some user friendliness added + the option of saving more than 1 site, this would be a great little tool.
Doesn’t Save credentials
So I don’t understand how re-entering credentials is a feature anyone would want? In age of password managers I don’t see how this is in anyway more efficient than a standard browser with 1Password?
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
