Opera Coast, the most innovative browser for iOS devices, has now been updated Discover news like in the Opera web broswer as well as simplified sharing. Opera has also introduced compression technology made popular by its Mini browser to the Coast 4.0 app.
“Great content is what drives the web, and also what should drive a great web browser, and that’s what the latest edition of Opera Coast for iPhone, iPad and iPod achieves,” says Huib Kleinhout, Product Manager for Opera Coast, Opera Software. “Speed is one of the top priorities for our users, and now they can get to their favorite content even faster.”
With the Discover users can find new stories from across the internet customised as per their location. A search will show a selection of articles and users can tap to see the story or swipe right for more articles.
With the new share button, instead of the earlier long press, users can easily share via email, messenger and social networking apps. Interestingly, the app turns the link into a web postcard, which can be captioned and shared.
The app now leverages Apple’s Continuity feature with Bluetooth and iCloud to let you continue browsing on a default handoff-enabled browser on a nearby mobile, tablet or laptop.
