I would pay for this.
It's FREE, but I would pay for this.
Really helpful for the over 40-45 crowd with presbyopia/who wear glasses.
Allows setting default enlargement of font size for browseing without needing to pan off the page.
Seems to be as fast as Safari.
Really like the bottom of the screen navigation option for "thumb" control.
I prefer SilverSurf's history feature to Safari's.
Need to be able to edit text title in Bookmarks.
Would be nice if it could import bookmarks from Safari, but I don't know if this is even possible as Safari is an Apple product.
Font increase doesn't work that well on the Yahoo website, and some sites end up with a dark gray background, but that's probably an idiosyncrasy of the websites' themselves.
Adding bookmark doesn't work, nor does history. Skip it.
Tried adding a bookmark, it was not in bookmark list afterwards. Tried another site, and the bookmark was there. Opened the bookmark list again, and it was empty. History didn't list most of the sites I visited. Sometimes entering a URL and tapping Go did nothing.
This is not a finished product. Skip it.
Very good app. Thoughtful.
It's surprising how few apps are developed to address demand in the senior market. Good job!
