Angry [APP] CB+ 1.1 || Last Update: 31/05/12

Hey folks,

Bored of IE and annoyed by bad browsing-experiences of third party apps?
Use all features of the default webbrowser and enjoy some additional
tweaks implemented by me to improve your everyday web usage:
- Unlimited trial (no annoying ads in important areas)
- up to 10 tabs
- custom urlBar position
- multiple startpages
- integrated Back/Forward & search functions
- scalable brightness
- LiveTile support
- orientation-lock
- custom contextmenu
- individual style
- 100% fullscreen
- run under locked screen
- back-up-feature
- pin to start feature

UPDATE: submitted for certification

while 1.1 is going to arrive in marketplace soon, I'm already working on 1.2 which will include:
A more IE-like,stunning mainpage
A more responsive UI (input-feedback)
auto-full screen option
progressbar
Bugfixes

post feedback, bugs, complaints (...) HERE or email/PM me.
mail: roqstrCOMP@googlemail.com, also found on the aboutpage.


Let me know what u think, everything positive and negative


So far, hope theres some use for it

Can you give details on the app. Is it using the IE Engine or you have it from scratch etc.

Everybody who couldn't install yet, try this:

1. copy the zune-link i sent you.
2. write a mail to yourself.
3. open it on your phone.


for the 12 folks that are already in i sent a mail to their live-inbox.
hope that solves the installation issue.

When I make a new tab it seems I can't search when I type xda developers it says ERROR Invalid url.I think every tab that we make if possible make to the home page.

The home-page can be set in settings-> general-> new tab

Cool BETA tester

My response from BETA-testing. (Note: Even if you have posted some bugs I'll still fill my list with what I experience)
Phone: LG Optimus 7
Status: Works perfectly!
My current status: Stopped BETA testing.


Positive:
  • 100% fullscreen
  • Customization!
  • Live tile with information about current session!!
  • Slide up the URL tab on fullscreen to get to normal view without fullscreen.
  • Fast web browser
  • Share page function (lovely!!)
  • It's now my official MAIN browser!
  • -
  • -


Things to maybe improve & suggestions:
  • First startpage is google.de, could have been google.com (but nothing special actually)
  • Maybe you could make your own videoplayer to play eg. youtube videos on, instead of using the phone's player (not required since the videoplayer of the phone is also good)
  • Also have the abillity to press the favorites url instead of only the visit button at the bottom. But keep it.
  • Maybe slide with 2 or 3 fingers down on the screen for entering/exiting fullscreen mode?
  • -
  • -

Negative and or Currently found bugs:
  • When entering fullscreen mode, it's hard to get back to regular. I had to tap like 5 times on the black button at the bottom left. (hard to use the button)
  • If the application opens without internet connection it will say ERROR, no network available. But it does say it when I change to other menus such as settings (keep spamming ERROR everywhere)
  • Theres no suggestion of websites when entering a url for eg. if you enter www.fa it could show up some suggestions like facebook or failblog.
  • -


I'll edit this post with more when I find

thanks for that wonderful feedback, so much inspiration

some response to the bugs:
- i'm currently working on the suggestionlist, shouldn't be that difficult.
- for the fullscreen-button i got a new solution, what should make it much
easier.
- the Network-check must be fixxed, thanks for your discovery.


@Ttblondey: search function is now included

I have given my review here and video review here.

Overall I found the app to be very nice and smooth. A good alternative for sure but there are few things you can look into except the bugs which is already reported.

1) One is integration with skydrive for syncing bookmarks etc.
2) More Gestures
3 ) Open up option for both Google and Bing as search engine.
4 ) cookie turn on and off.

Rest is all good, keep us rolled in beta.
