    [FONT=&quot]Apollo–Browser w/FB chat is a new free tabbed iPad browser app from Voyager Technology that claims to be the “first and only†app to let the user browse the web and Facebook chat at the same time, so you won’t have to miss any of that vital chat when you’re browsing! The Facebook chat box is situated in the bottom right corner of the browser, just as on your computer browser, and all you have to do is log in to your Facebook account to start chatting and browsing. If you want to have more than one chat ongoing at the same time, you can open up new chat tabs and swipe to switch between them. [/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]It’s actually quite a nice little browser even if you’re not interested in the integrated Facebook chat element, which is presumably why it was recently featured as New and Noteworthy in the App Store. It keeps it very simple, uncluttered and clean, with just four buttons on the top toolbar, and tabs that you switch between by swiping, and the default colour is that nice Facebook blue. [/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]For some reason you have to be 17+ to download the browser. I can’t actually see why that might be so, but just to point that out. [/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]Click here to download the free app: Apollo-Browser w/FB chat for iPad on the iTunes App Store[/FONT]

    btw, the app is 17+ because all third party browser apps have to be rated like this:(

    You're welcome! It's a cool browser. Thanks for explaining about the 17+, rating, I didn't realise.

    Very nice indeed! I also notices I could copy a text in some site that was just impossible using native safari.

    I would recommend to consider supporting some good stuff supported by other browser. It seems every brows has it's own pros but something that does it all would be perfect, and most things are pretty straight forward I presume:

    - full screen browsing mode
    - split multiple windows
    - configurabe gestures
    - download power. It would be best if we could select which program co-related to the downloaded file.

    Thanks!

    great feedbacks!

    full screen- I do not like how other browsers are doing this, if we do this, it will be real full screen. not one button on screen. all depend on gesture

    split window - upgrade to 1.3 right now! you can split between web and window. and may I ask what use case do you have in mind for two web window splitting ? just wondering

    configure gesture - we really do not like more settings. what gestures do you have in mind?

    download - now we are talking:) it's about done, will release in ver 1.4
