Hands-free Browser: use gestures for web navigation
By James Hudson
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Getting your hands dirty? With this app you can surf the web without touching the screen.
It's fantastic for reading recipes while you cook, following repair instructions with greasy hands, working out, putting on makeup, or catching up on news while you are doing household chores whilst wearing gloves.
This app has also proven useful to people with arthritis, or when fine movement is difficult or painful.
You use similar gestures to those you normally use on the touch screen, so it will feel natural right away. Watch the video here to see how it works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vWI7b9NzQPc
Simply browse the web normally to the page you want, then put down or dock your device. You can now use upwards or downwards hand gestures in front of your phone to scroll the page vertically, or "swipe" sideways to move between your favorite pages.
