Hi Guys,
Check out my new super fast Android browser at
https:// play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.weejim.app.lynx&hl=en

It is designed to get you the information you need quickly and is very frugal with your mobile data plan (by not downloading images).

It is actively being developed and now supports bookmarks.
Give it 5 stars if you like it.
Free feel to let me know how the app can be improved for you (I am always on a lookout for ways to make it better)
I would appreciate if you can refrain from giving the app a bad rating. I am just starting out, give me a chance to fix it for you :)


Cheers,
- WJ

Looks nice, i like the sidebar which you can swipe to get the history, however the ads are a bit in the way,
maybe you can only display it on the home page and that history bar.

i had some images not appearing, and a light holo theme would be nice.

Hi matgras,
Thanks for the suggestion.
I will add the light theme to the todo list.

The images are by design not meant to be displayed. Lynx browser is designed to be frugal on the amount of data downloaded from the web.
That said, I do recognized the need to give the users more choices, so it is possible that the rule may be relaxed in a future release, perhaps by allowing the user to opt for image download when they are on wifi.

Thanks everyone for checking out "Lynx Browser".
Some of you have enquired about an ads-free version of the app and this is definitely on the cards.

Quick survey:
How much would you be willing to pay for the app?

(I definitely would not want to over-price the app out of the market, but at the same time it has to be at a fair amount to compensate for loss of future ads earnings)

Just uploaded Lynx Browser (v0.1.12) to Google Play (may take a couple of hours to appear in the Play store around the world).

This new version will support deletion of bookmarks

I'd recommend you going up to max 1,49$/€/whatever. That's an amount many people will donate as a thank-you for your work. Everything higher will need some consideration before purchasing.

I have received very useful feedback via emails from you guys and thank you very much for that :)
I love hearing from my users as it allows me to find out what is important to them and to address them before they uninstall the application.

I will try to resolve those issues that are easy to fix.
The more complicated ones will have to go into the todo list as I am still learning about android. But rest assured, I will take the suggestions into account when enhancing the app where feasible.

Immediately unistalled Opera mini after trying this browser. A very fast browser when connection’s crappy or when I only want words. Thanks!

Added: I don’t even need to check how much data i’ve saved when using this.:)
