Maven Web Browser+ feels more like the beginning of a great browser than a finished app capable of competing with the others in the category. For example, Maven+ includes a virtual “trackpad” (or joystick) that allows you to quickly scroll in any direction. However, the trackpad doesn’t have strong advantages over “normal” iOS scrolling and takes up valuable screen real estate. In addition, ad blocking is only available via a $0.99 IAP, which makes Maven significantly more expensive than its competitors.

√ All things considered
The motivation of Maven Browser was the inconvenience with multi-touch dedicated interface of existing web browsers. You can do everything without moving up and down the finger busily. Everything is reachable from your two thumbs.

√ Save passwords
Maven Browser is the first web browser supports password saving. Your password will be saved safely in iOS KeyChain. You will be asked to save password when you log in a page with password. You can definitely disable this feature if you don't want.

√ Bookmark Jog-Dial
Now you can easily switch between favorite websites. Just touch and release the jog-dial wherever you want to go.

√ Track-pad
How do you scroll the lengthy web page? Probably you would swipes the screen from bottom to top which is painful. Now you can use trackball to scroll the page with your thumb. Go and touch the red ball. It will make your life easier.

>>> Double tap and drag will move the track-pad anywhere you want.

√ Download Manager
You can download files from link and images. Download manage also supports preview for downloaded files. You can also transfer downloaded files to your Mac/PC with iTunes. It's that easy!
