Thread: Full screen Web browser on AppStore

  1. #1
    Default Full screen Web browser on AppStore
    Has anyone heard of this app or even tried it? Just found this by accident and I don't think it has been discussed here on the forums. Thought I would just share the link here and see what you guys make of it. Actually I am surprised its on the AppStore.

    Yes I seen this app in the appstore.... when I seen it I did not buy it because I did not want to waste space on my phone for an app that I already have.... why have two browsers.... and also they are rating it three stars at this time... and there are some saying it crashes all the time etc... I always, always read the ratings before I purchase especially if I am not sure if I want the app or not....

    Hope this helps!

    So are you going to continue to use this one instead of Safari on the phone? If so why, if not why?

    Im not interested in shaking.This is not a game.I think it needs further development.No javascript support&running slow.

    well dejawoo pretty much said it

    its not the best yet... but i did like it alot

    i also used incognito.... good for certain browsing needs i suppose

    neither replace safari yet.... but if firefox came out or opera i would strongly consider switching

    thanx guys for the info. so i dont think its worth adding this app. but what i dont understand is how did apple allow another browser in direct competition to safari? i thought all the stock apps were off limits in the SDK rules.

    I don;t see how they calim 40% and 20% more viewable area in landscape and portrait (respectively). Would that not imply that 40% of your screen is taken up by something other than the web-page in normal safari? That seems... false to me. Maybe with the keyboard up, but I hardly thing that should count.

    i'm kinda not sold on it yet. Maybe they should do an update or something.

    kinda agree on that. 40% just seems a lot...but maybe they r claiming this by including the status bar + the web page title + the address bar/search + navigation icons at the bottom. i think that could add up to 30-35%.
