Portal - Full Screen Browser

Removed from the App Store

Portal is a browser that is sure to evoke strong feelings from users, as it almost completely redesigns the standard browser interface. Instead of the familiar URL, search, and bookmark bars, Portal has a semi-circular button on the bottom of the screen that controls all browser functions. Even though Portal’s “innovations” are thoughtfully implemented, they don’t seem to improve the browsing experience in any real way and take time to fully master. More importantly, Portal needs to include a detailed tutorial to explain its deviations from tradition.

True Full Screen:

During browsing only the discreet Portal button is displayed on screen. A flick of the wrist hides / shows the Portal button for true full screen mode. The Portal button gives you instant access to all our browsing features.

Research Mode:

Our new research mode slashes the time you spend searching for details by highlighting the information you need as you browse.

Pinpoint Find In Page:

Portal’s find in page functionality will highlight all instances of your search phrase and will scroll to next and previous instances on your command, it will even highlight the location on screen with an animated crosshair to save you time.

Multiple Profiles:

Profiles help you organize your browsing and settings. All settings, bookmarks, research and history in Portal are stored per profile. You can create profiles for whatever you want, perhaps one for work and one for play, or perhaps use one to store your private bookmarks. Stealth profiles are never displayed so you can keep things completely secret.

File Downloading:

You can choose the file types that are downloaded when they are encountered. By default ZIP, RAR, DMG, Torrent, ISO and EXE files are downloaded to your documents folder so you can later retrieve them using iTunes. You can add whatever MIME types you like and can quickly toggle file downloading on / off.

Printing:

Providing you are set up for printing with iOS 4.2 you will be able to print web pages using the AirPrint functionality.

Emailing:

You can quickly email links from pages, links to the current page, images and entire research topics from Portal. If you frequently email the same address you can setup a default email address to avoid having to choose / type it each time.
