One of the more feature-packed iOS Web browsers out there, Maven Web Browser+ has once again received an update.
Maven Web Browser+ is featured in both our iPad Web Browsers AppGuide and Best Web Browsers for the iPhone AppGuide, and with good reason. With the wealth of features it possesses, Maven Web Browser+ is sure to offer something to every Web-surfing iOS user.
As outlined in the universal app’s App Store description, the main features of Maven Web Browser+ are as follows:
- Innovative bookmark jog-dial
- Magical track-pad
- Save password just like Firefox
- Unlimited tabs
- Screen brightness jog-dial
- Private browser by single touch
- Download manager
- Dual screen support (iPad only)
- Gesture support
- Passcode lock
- Facebook, Twitter, Instapaper support
- HTTP basic authentication support
- Bookmark import (Firefox/Safari only)
- Ad Blocker (In App Purchase)
Among the items above, a couple of features are of note: the “innovative bookmark jog-dial” and the “magical trackpad.” The former lets you access your favorite sites on a rotary dial, while the latter lets you scroll through Web pages using a thumb-friendly virtual trackpad.
The latest update to Maven Web Browser+ brings two improvements, and one of these is to do with said trackpad. When scrolling with the trackpad, a progress bar is now shown. This is consistent with the conventional way of scrolling, that is, by swiping or flicking across the screen.
The other improvement, which is long-overdue, affects only the iPad version of the app. As you might have guessed, it’s none other than support for the third-generation iPad’s Retina display.
If you fancy these features and more, download Maven Web Browser+ in the App Store for $0.99. If not, perhaps good old Safari or the rather excellent and free Chrome for iOS already has you caught in its web.
