About Web Browsers Summary

Wide Web for the iPhone and iPod touch is a Web browser that provides full screen display at a resolution of 320 x 480. The browser's address bar and menu can be easily hidden to provide a true full screen experience. The hidden items can then be quickly returned to the screen by lightly shaking your device. Those not comfortable with their iPhone or iPod's auto-rotation feature will enjoy Wide Web's integrated Rotate button, which allows instant transition between Portrait and Landscape modes.

The ability to take control of the browser's viewpoint just scratches the surface of Wide Web's robust feature set. One component not commonly found in mobile browsers is the ability to modify the URL of the default search engine. This browser not only allows you to choose between Google, Yahoo, or Wikipedia, but lets you edit the actual Search URL to use the custom engine of your liking. Another nice feature is the ability to enter your search keywords directly into Wide Web's address bar, a la Google Chrome.

The Bookmarking feature actually lets you capture and save a full screen image of your favorite pages along with its title and URL. You can also email bookmarked pages, or open them with the Safari browser, with just one quick tap of the finger. Finally, and perhaps most importantly for those who like to tweet, is Wide Web's somewhat seamless integration with Twitter. The browser, along with your active Twitter account, enables you to quickly post a tweet containing a Web page's title and URL along with your customized message.

Publisher's Description
