√ All things considered
The motivation of Maven Browser was the inconvenience with multi-touch dedicated interface of existing web browsers. You can do everything without moving up and down the finger busily. Everything is reachable from your two thumbs.
√ Save passwords
Maven Browser is the first web browser supports password saving. Your password will be saved safely in iOS KeyChain. You will be asked to save password when you log in a page with password. You can definitely disable this feature if you don't want.
√ Bookmark Jog-Dial
Now you can easily switch between favorite websites. Just touch and release the jog-dial wherever you want to go.
How do you scroll the lengthy web page? Probably you would swipes the screen from bottom to top which is painful. Now you can use trackball to scroll the page with your thumb. Go and touch the red ball. It will make your life easier.
>>> Double tap and drag will move the track-pad anywhere you want.
√ Download Manager
You can download files from link and images. Download manage also supports preview for downloaded files. You can also transfer downloaded files to your Mac/PC with iTunes. It's that easy!
√ Unlimited tabs
Maven automatically opens a new tab when a link is supposed to be opened in a new tab. User can also open a link in a new tab by hold down a link and select open in a tab menu.
You can swipe with two fingers to switch between tabs. Gestures are fully customizable.
On iPhone, Maven supports two/three fingers Gesture. On iPad, Maven support upto 4 fingers for Gesture.
√ Social share
Maven gets social! Maven now supports Facebook, Twitter, Instapaper and Read it later. It is currently in beta.
Please let us know if there's any problem. We will investigate and resolve it! Social sharing is powered by ShareKit.

√ Fixed few performance issues
√ Bug fixes
Love the Large Font Size Support
I've used Maven in the past on an older iOS 6 device and it crashed too much, so I stopped using it, but now I'm on a newer device with iOS 10 and it works much better!
My favorite feature is the support for larger font sizes without having to scroll horizontally! I can't believe Safari STILL does not have this, outside of its Reader mode, which is not always available and is limited, especially with dynamic web content like comments to an article.
Issues I've run into with Maven that I hope will be fixed include:
- when reading a long webpage, if I accidentally rotate the screen, I lose my position on the page and have to hunt down where I was, which is very frustrating (workaround: turn on Rotation Lock)
- sometimes when I want to copy some text further down on a long webpage, when I tap and hold on the page to start my text selection, Maven automatically quickly scrolls the page to a much different location, thus losing where I was, which again is very frustrating (workaround: find a link to start the selection at)
An enhancement I'd really love to see is shared links in other apps that open up in Maven (Firefox and Safari have this).
I would also really like a dark mode, especially on the very top of the screen where the signal strength, clock, and battery life are.
Thank you so much for all of your hard work and continued support of Maven! Once the above is addressed, then this will be a 5-Star app.
I don't write reviews. I have a lot of great and useful apps, but I just don't bother doing all the rate me stuff. That being said, this app is seriously impressive and I actually want to tell people.
Maven is probably the most user friendly phone browser I have ever come across. I think the developer must have spent a lot of time trying to think of ways he could improve the user experience, and it shows.
It's just really good. I would have paid for this without a second thought if it wasn't newly free. Try it out. 5 stars
Was fantastic...now, not so much!
First used this when it came out and it was the best browser for my iPad. It kept passwords, kept history for as long as I wanted, and rarely crashed. Unfortunately, as each update came, each of these positives became negatives. It only sometimes includes saved passwords (and you can't view the passwords); it no longer saves the history, so if you accidentally
Close a page, too bad, it's gone), and it crashes...a lot. Now, I use Proton as my primary browser. Maybe, Maven will get better, but apps rarely do.
