BigBrowser - by Braille Institute for iOS

Developer's Description

BigBrowser is an Internet browsing application designed to help Low Vision users more easily navigate the web on their iPads. Its extra large keyboard and controls, expanded pinch zooming, and multiple color themes make content easy to read.Features include:- Large, easy to use navigation controls (double tap 'back' button to review browsing history)- Easy access to various color themes using sliding navigation access- Enhanced pinch zooming for greater magnification- Easy-to-read browsing history and favorites page- Large search and URL fields- Easy-delete buttons to quickly clear text fields- Quick-access URL extension buttons (.com, .org, .net, etc.)- Quick dismiss/deploy controls to hide/unhide the keyboard and navigation controls (simply select the big blue "B" to dismiss/deploy)- Three browser window tabs- VoiceOver functionality- Quick access to Braille Institute resources, website, Facebook page, etc.BigBrowser utilizes custom features that were created specifically for those who require increased magnification to read. It was designed to enhance your browsing experience, however, there are limitations. In this initial iteration of BigBrowser, the custom keyboard does not interface with text fields within web pages due to some constraints within iOS. Also, certain web pages (YouTube and Twitter being the most prominent) dont allow for pinch zooming when viewed on an iPad. Both of these limitations are out of our hands but we will keep working to find a solution that can be included in future updates. The Apple ratings system requires that this app be rated 17+ solely because it does not restrict the user's ability to locate and view certain materials on the web. We hope that you enjoy using BigBrowser and welcome your feedback as we continue to improve this great application.
