We know you like to browse the web when you’re on the go. That’s why Opera Touch features a fast web search interface and is designed to make it easy to browse with only one hand. It’s a browser so good, it won a Red Dot Award for its user interface design.
When you start Opera Touch, the browser is instantly ready to find things on the web. Just start typing. When you have found a QR code, simply use the browser to scan it and go to the website it links to. You can also use Opera Touch to scan a barcode on a product to look it up online.
*Designed to be used on the go*
Opera Touch lets you explore the web using just one hand. The Fast Action Button is always available on your browser screen and gives you direct access to your Instant Search. You can also hold and swipe the button open to switch to your most recent tabs, reload or close the page or send the current tab to your computer in Flow.
*Create your own Flow for the things you find online*
Use Opera Touch on your iPhone together with your Opera computer browser for seamless web browsing across your devices. It’s operating system independent, so you can connect your iPhone with your Mac, Windows or Linux computer.
In fact, connecting your iPhone and other devices with your computer browser has never been easier. Just start the Opera computer browser and scan the QR code displayed there with Opera Touch. No login, password or account needed. You can now send links, videos and notes to yourself with a single click and they will be displayed across your devices.
*Safe and secure browsing*
Opera Touch employs the very latest in web technologies to keep you safe. The data you send in My Flow is fully end-to-end encrypted.
*Native ad blocker for faster browsing*
Opera Touch features an opt-in ad blocker. When turned on, the browser will block intrusive ads, making web pages load faster.

Ratings and Reviews
Super close to where it needs to be.
I know my cons seem longer than my pros but this is a great start to a chrome replacement and once the cons are fixed I’ll be switching from chrome entirely.
Pros: connect to my computer easily, animations, interface, seems stable (although I haven’t opened more then 5 pages at a time)
Cons: have to hold down navigation button at the bottom (just tapping it to open the same menu would be fine or integrating 3D Touch to make the process faster), haven’t found a “add to bookmarks” or a bookmarks location and would be a great addition (this for sure can’t replace chrome until this happens), no SpeedDial (adding SpeedDial that can communicate with my pc browser instead of the current home page would be awesome), tabs from pc and phone are in the same place (it’d be nice to have a separate button to search through each and it just feels crowded with both in one UI page)
I love Opera Touch, and I use My Flow all the time. It makes moving between my computer and my other devices really super easy.
The only thing that would make me love Opera Touch even more is having back and forebears be swiped. The awkwardness of holding the fast action button and moving to the back arrow gets worse when there’s a webpage that reloads over and over and you can’t hit the back button fast enough to get past it (or hold the back button for a list of previously viewed sites). Already, the app is designed to make everything as simple and one-handed as possible. If you could just swipe back the previous page, that would make it perfect.
This app is amazing. I have come back to Opera because of it. ❤️
Needs updated, both with fixes and features
The app has been malfunctioning lately. After closing it, website tabs will unload. This is normal. However, some website tabs will not reload automatically when reopening the app. This is especially true of Google sites and searches. Also, when attempting to scroll up (dragging downward), the app will register the gesture as though you are intending to refresh the page. It’s very difficult to browse on a smartphone with a vertical screen when trying to vertically scroll causes the page to constantly refresh.
As far as features, Flow is not the future. At least, not for me. Yes it’s convenient, but it is far from the same as having synchronized bookmarks. I have dozens, perhaps more than a hundred, bookmarks vital to my life and business operations on my desktop. I need to be able to synch them with mobile and vice versa.
