Browser+ HD. The internet, rethought, reinvented, and handcrafted for iPad.
By Digital Press Publishing
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Web browsing rethought, redesigned, and handcrafted for your iPad.
Competing web browsers copy desktop browsing. Tabs that constantly lose your place, buttons at the top of the screen when you’re holding a cup of coffee, and absolutely nothing to take advantage of that big beautiful touch screen you’re holding.
Full-screen browsing, and a beautiful new way to browse. See a link from a friend while checking Facebook or the New York Times? Just tap it. Instead of changing your page, forcing you to re-load the page you started on, the link opens above your page. Check out the funny picture, read the article, hit close- you’re back where you started, no reloading, no hitting the back button. The internet, seamless.
To reveal search, simply swipe from the bottom of your screen- Google will bounce on up, along with the address bar. To bring out the Toolbar just drag it out from the left or right side of the screen. And, to get to your Most Visited and Favorites, pull out the Toolbar a bit farther. Slick, fast, beautiful, and intuitive.
Don’t want a certain page showing up in Most Visited? We have you covered. You can block pages from History, Address Autofill, and Most Visited with a single tap. Privacy doesn’t have to be a pain- it can be a tap.
Browser+ is the slickest way to browse the internet on the planet. It’s beautifully designed, wonderfully animated, and, after five minutes, you won’t know how you lived without us.
What's New in Version 1.1
ENORMOUS update- bookmarking, gestures for back/forward, tons of bug fixes, enormous speed improvements, Instapaper support, Post to Facebook, multiple pages for Most Visited and Bookmarks, Email Link, and more!
We've even internationalized into 7 additional languages- Italian, Spanish, Japanese, Portuguese, French, Dutch, and German.
Play by play:
- Bookmarks! Once you bookmark a site or bookmarklet a 'Bookmarks' row will appear in your Sidebar. Don't care about bookmarking? No worries, you won't see any changes.
- Gestures- to move forward or backwards simply swipe left or right with three fingers.
- Bug fixes! All those annoying crashes have been resolved, and Visual History is much, much smoother.
- The pre-set Popular Pages are now removable, sorry about that! We added them just to give new users a feel for how the Sidebar would look once they got using it more, not to force links on people.
- Post to Facebook, Instapaper Read Later, and the ability to Email Link.
- Internationalization into seven additional languages: French, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, German, Japanese, and Dutch.
- Useragent customization and cookie clearing in Settings.
Good, needs more
Excellent execution of gestures to save valuable screen real estate, which makes for an awesome experience: not only is your view more full (obviously), but you're interacting with the interwebz in a manual way, which is engaging and what the post-pc era is all about.
But it could stand to be a bit more stable, and consistent. Surprisingly, it's not bad at all. In fact, it's become my main iPad browser.
The reason I've given it 4 stars instead of 5 is because it should be more connected. Because there's no ability for the bookmarklets you can get on safari, it should compensate: there should be connectivity with bookmark services like pinboard, twitter is a must, instapaper/RIL, evernote, etc. Do that, and you'd get 5 stars from me.
Not Worth the Price!
It has a friendly interphase that spins off the old version of the safari browser. To some extent its organizational features are outdated in comparison to the new updates of other FREE browsers, but these issues can be overlooked since they are aesthetic and pertain to individual habits. What I am unwilling to ignore is the lack of support concerning the loading of pages: the browser is slow to load! At the same time if the user scrolls down during the loading process, the page is continually pushed up to the top making the browser unusable. This issue has been discussed since the appearance of the app. Disappointingly, I have not used the browser since I purchased it 4 months ago and the issues have not been solved. Great customer support guys, NOT!
I've been looking for an alternative to Safari, I'm not too fond of Safari on iOS or Mac. I use Chrome browser for my Mac, and I like the simplicity Chrome has to offer. And, this browser resembles Chrome due to its simplicity. It focuses on the content and it's not a feature packed browser, but it lays all the content in a very minimalist way.
I like it, I'll recommend it to anyone and everyone. But everyone has there on preference, but as for me..its perfect.
