Description

iCab Mobile is a web browser for the iOS. It provides many unique and useful features you won't find in other iPhone browsers.

APPLE WATCH:
The Watch App is a remote control for iCab Mobile, so you can navigate, zoom, scroll, open bookmarks, links, the homepage, switch tabs or sitch on/off the fullscreen mode. It is also possible to let iCab read a web site using speech output.

FILE UPLOADS:
iCab Mobile can upload any files on web pages (Due to limitations of the iOS this does not everywhere, but it works fine on many web sites).

SEARCHING:
iCab Mobile comes with several default search engines you can choose from. You can easily add new search engines.

FILLING OUT FORMS:
iCab Mobile can save web forms and restore the form content later (manually or automatically). The saved forms data can be password protected. Supports many third-party Password Manager Apps as well.

FILTERS:
There’s a built-in fully customizable filter feature. It allows to block resources, ads, banners, user tracking scripts, cookies etc. Supports AdBlock Plus/EasyList filters as well.

TABS:
iCab Mobile supports Tabs, so you can open multiple web pages at the same time. Links can be opened in Tabs (in the foreground or background) manually or automatically.

BOOKMARKS:
Bookmarks can be organized in folders. You can import/export the bookmarks from/to your PC/Mac browser.

FULLSCREEN MODE:
iCab Mobile provides a fullscreen mode where the whole screen is used to display the web page. No screen space is wasted for toolbars.

DOWNLOADS:
iCab Mobile has a built-in Download Manager so you can download almost all files from the internet. The downloads can be easily transfered to a Mac/PC/Linux computer but also to other Apps on the device which can open these files

MULTIUSER SUPPORT
You can create multiple user accounts, each user has its own private bookmarks, filters, settings, etc.

DROPBOX
iCab Mobile supports Dropbox. Export/Import bookmarks; transfer downloads, images, files, web pages to your Dropbox account.

TWIN BROWSER:
In this mode, you can have two browsers side by side on the iPad. This is especially useful on the large iPad Pro.

VOICEOVER
The App is also accessible for visually impaired and blind users. If VoiceOver is enabled, the App plays soft ticks while a page is loading, so blind users are able to identify when the page load has finished.

The App includes a store providing several InApp purchases. These are meant as a tip jar. The InApp purchases are available for different prices, so you can pick the amount for the tip yourself. Doing so will unlock a few cool features as a reward, these are always the same, regardless of the amount of the tip. Users who have purchased the App within the last 12 months do get all these features for free, no need to buy one of the InApp purchases. Though they can nevertheless give me a tip, if they want to... ;-)

What's New

Version 9.10.7

- In the Download Manager there's a new option to sort the files.

- In the Download Manager you can now define rules to post-process downloads. These rules allow to move different file types to different folders, copy pictures into the Album fully automatically, and much more. These rules apply to finished downloads in the "root folder" of the downloads window. Create or edit these rules using the new button "Rules" in the toolbar of the downloads window.

Just like the "smart folder" feature for the bookmarks, this feature is a bonus for all users who have supported the App development by giving a tip (Settings > Store) and also all new users who have bought the App within the last year or buy it now.

- There's a new search feature available in the Tabs window as well

- Since iOS 11: While searching within the Bookmarks, it is possible to directly delete or edit the bookmarks of the search result (via swipe gesture to the left)

- Bugfix: On the iPhone X it could still happen that preview images for the quick starter and the Tabs overview could have black bars in Fullscreen mode.

The browser that does everything

LAX20531

iCab includes every feature of a desktop browser--and then adds more. It's ad block capability is first rate, particularly the feature that analyzes filters to display those that are actively blocking content, and importantly, reports domains that aren't being blocked so additional filters can be written if desired. I especially like the download folder and the enhancement that automatically backs these up to iCloud. An action can also be added to format and download web pages to pdf format without the use of third party converters that typically insert ads or format the page poorly.

Given the large number of features and large degree of customization that is possible, it can become confusing at times, particularly the grouping of features in the Settings menu. By necessity it's granular and seeking that particular option you know exists but cannot immediately find can require scouring Settings and the action menus. The dev has added a search capability to Settings which is immensely helpful, but I’d suggest new users become acclimated to the default settings before customizing.

Lastly, I used in-app tool to provide the dev some incremental revenue and encourage others to do the same. Unlike some devs that require purchasing new versions to receive the latest enhancements, Alex has enhanced and supported iCab without requiring us to drop one cent beyond the initial investment. It hasn't gone unnoticed.

Finally a replacement for Atomic Web

Kfrehi

This is quite honestly one of the best browsers for iOS out there right now. It has incredibly granular customization and doesn’t feel like a gimped desktop browser, unlike the mobile versions of Firefox & Chrome. I’ve been looking for something to fill the browser sized hole left in my heart after Atomic Web stopped updating, and this is definitely it.

One thing I will say is, some people might not be willing to take the $2 leap of faith, maybe offer a free version with locked features?

Definitely my new daily mobile browser!

Amazingly good

MrBrownSound

I customized the hell out of this app to make it my own. I really love it. I thought adblocking would be bad since it’s not using the systems installed one like safari can do, but it’s copy paste filters work great for everything I’ve seen thus far. I love the different profiles too. There are very few apps as customizable as this. I hope the dev continues to do good by us. I’d happily pay more for added features or something to help him to since this is such a useful tool for me.
