With two kids, a full time job and Parent Palace in full swing, it’s hard to get things done in a day! It’s safe to say that I rely VERY heavily on my mobile devices to help me accomplish all that I need to in order to take care of my family, my job, and my wonderful readers. If you’re like me, you have a favorite browser that you go right to on your desktop and your laptop, and you just transfer that right over to your phone. Well, it’s time to break out of a rut – sometimes traditional browsers don’t always give us the quick-touch access that we want and need. But there’s a new (at least to me!) game in town– the Dolphin Browser. The Dolphin Browser app is changing the way I browse and work on my iPhone.
The Dolphin Browser app is speedy, efficient, and intuitive (kind of like a real dolphin!) and it makes searching easy. First of all, it’s free to download, and here’s what the main screen looks like. The buttons are Speed Dial shortcuts, and you can add your favorite sites here so you can navigate with the touch of a button – you just click + to add your favorite URLs.
But the best part about Dolphin is that it’s trainable – let me show you some of my favorite features. My most favorite features is called Gestures. You can create your own gestures and there are some built in. Here’s the Gesture screen-
Gestures allows you to browse by simply swiping. For example, I can swipe a G and it will open Google. If I swipe a checkmark, Twitter will open. I created a “P” gesture which led me to Parent Palace! This is INFINITELY faster than typing out www.parentpalace.com in a teeny tiny mobile browser window.
Each direction that you swipe has a different function on Dolphin. If you tap the bottom of Dolphin, you can add bookmarks, share content, and share themes. One of my favorite features on the bottom menu is Night Mode, which instantly lowers the brightness. There is also a private mode if you don’t want any search history retained. The left side bar has bookmarks and histor functionality. The right bar shows all of your tabs that are open which is EXTREMELY convenient if you need to switch back and forth between tabs quickly.
Tabs are super easy to open, close, and switch, which makes browsing so much easier. Other cool features include Sonar, which is their smart voice search feature, and Dolphin Connect, which allows you to sync data across compatible devices.
So if you are frustrated with your browsing experience on iOS, I HIGHLY recommend that you try the Dolphin Browser for iOS. And remember, it’s free, so what do you have to lose? You can download it from the app store, or check it out here first to get all the details on the Dolphin Browser!
