I just released an update for iBrowse which does two things.
Brings it up to date with iOS5
Brings the feature I have wanted for ages – you can now open links in a background tab
I use this when I’m browsing a news site. I go to news.bbc.co.uk, and I can now click and hold on a link, then select ‘open in background tab’. That story starts loading, and I pick a few other stories to load in the background.
Now I switch to coverflow view and swipe to one of the stories (which has probably already loaded by now).
Watchover lets you monitor what your kids are doing on their computers. It takes a screenshot every minute which you can browse from your iPhone iPad or iTouch.
You can also see what applications have been open, and when the computer has been running.
Just like watching your kids in the park, Watchover lets you keep an eye on them from a distance. So while the children are in their bedrooms, you can connect from your iPhone, iPod or iPad and view what they’ve been doing for the last few days – or see what is on their screens right now.
Watchover is available now in the appstore, and I’d love to hear your feedback.
Apple just approved a fairly major update to VLC Streamer.
Key improvements are:
* You can now copy converted movies to your device easily (so you can watch them on the plane or when you are away from your computer)
* Improved code for keeping the streaming connection (should reduce buffering)
* Supports playing movies in the background over airplay
iBrowse is my new browser. It just got even better.
You can now open a page, then switch to opening links in background tabs. This means you can do a search on Google and open multiple results at once, or go to the front page of a news site and open all the stories you want to read.
-Also included are 100% fullscreen browsing
-Turbo mode (just like fast web)
-Block images (also saves bandwidth)
-and much more!
Have a look at the linked video to see it in action…
It is a beta, so although we have tested it, there may be problems with some setups. Please let me know ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) if there are problems so that I can fix them, and equally let me know if it works well so that I can move it out of beta!
