Twiner social web browser
By Nicola Ferruzzi
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Hi! this app is based on a very old idea and used to work of 1st generation of iPad only; unfortunately at that time "splitting the view" was an hack that worked because I spent a lot of time to fix all little problems on each specific iOS version. Now, almost 5 version of iOS later I don't think it may work at all but I'm glad someone still like the concept that was 4 years earlier than iOS9 "split view". Thanks for still downloading it @ilwoody
Twiner is a browser with two independents views designed to be used by two person at the same time, each one with its navigation bar and bookmark window. This way your iPad internet connection can be shared with someone in front of you or side by side with you.
Twiner supports both portrait and landscape mode!
In portrait mode Twiner views are oriented in opposite directions, this is useful when you and your friend are sitting in front of each other, like in a train or in a coffee shop. Sharing internet this way is fun and useful, its really like having two iPad!
In landscape mode Twiner views works like a split view, this is the most convenient way to use Twiner when you and your friend are close and oriented on the same direction.
Of course you don't have to be with someone to use Twiner, you can use the two views as two separate windows to browse more site at the same time with fullscreen resolution and separate navigation bars. Like HUGE tabs.
When Twiner is used with someone in front of you there is still just one keyboard that automatically adapts itself orientation based on who is entering data. Once the keyboard is opened its locked to one direction to avoid keyboard hijacking by the other browser.
## New version 1.4 coming out soon! ###
1.4 : proper bookmarks window
1.4 : unified url and search bar
1.4 : fig bugs with youtube not playing movies
1.4 : configuration window (search engine, user agent, brightness and more)
What's New in Version 1.3
The keyboard is now locked to one browser until it needed for data entry.
The keyboard is now able to adapt itself orientation based on the browser that needs it, so no more tilting is required to move it around.
Fixed many bugs regarding focus lost with forms and input fields.
Made a few suggestions and almost all were implemented! Thanks for the responsive development and the improved app, now very good. Still would like to have the option of having one pane be 180 of the other in landscape mode, but other than that, solid app. The keyboard switching makes it much more usable, thank you.
Freaking hilarious app
I thought this was the dumbest idea ever, but I downloaded it because it was such a funny concept. After using it, I can actually see it being really useful, but only in rare cases, like the coffee shop scenario.
