Portal - Full Screen Browser
By Gareth Clarke
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The ultimate full screen web browser for iPhone. We have created a browser with several fantastic new innovations to make your mobile browsing experience a true pleasure.
Now with full support for the iPhone 5 4 inch screen!
Our unique and intuitive user interface holds your hand whilst you are a novice user and is lightning fast to use when you are familiar with the functionality. More information on some of our innovations is listed below.

True Full Screen:
During browsing only the discreet Portal button is displayed on screen. A flick of the wrist hides / shows the Portal button for true full screen mode. The Portal button gives you instant access to all our browsing features.
Our new research mode slashes the time you spend searching for details by highlighting the information you need as you browse.
Pinpoint Find In Page:
Portal’s find in page functionality will highlight all instances of your search phrase and will scroll to next and previous instances on your command, it will even highlight the location on screen with an animated crosshair to save you time.
Profiles help you organize your browsing and settings. All settings, bookmarks, research and history in Portal are stored per profile. You can create profiles for whatever you want, perhaps one for work and one for play, or perhaps use one to store your private bookmarks. Stealth profiles are never displayed so you can keep things completely secret.
You can choose the file types that are downloaded when they are encountered. By default ZIP, RAR, DMG, Torrent, ISO and EXE files are downloaded to your documents folder so you can later retrieve them using iTunes. You can add whatever MIME types you like and can quickly toggle file downloading on / off.
Providing you are set up for printing with iOS 4.2 you will be able to print web pages using the AirPrint functionality.
You can quickly email links from pages, links to the current page, images and entire research topics from Portal. If you frequently email the same address you can setup a default email address to avoid having to choose / type it each time.
What's New in Version 1.4
- Full support for iPhone 5 and 4 inch display
- Fixes problems with iOS 6
- Stability fixes
Awesome; plus crashes
This would be my number one iPhone web browser (over Chrome) if the devs a) fixed the crashes, which happen to me roughly once or twice a week (way too often), and b) speed it up. It's a little on the slow side.
That said, I love everything about the UI, from the snappiness of the portal button to the sound effects. I would appreciate an option to leave the status bar visible, though; sometimes I want to see what time it is, which for now requires going back to the home screen, then reopening the app.
Click a link and get a blank page. I have to completely close out the app and re-open it and try again. Not guaranteed to solve problem though. Used to work perfectly. Can't wait for bugs to be squished.
Needs updating now
Was my favorite browser until 6.0 update, now is buggy, with frequent crashes. Has become unstable and unreliable, which are the main attributes you want in a browser. Here is how it goes: Type in something to search, select a search engine, hit search. App crashes, restart the app, give up. Please fix quickly!😨
