How To Setup And Use Fullscreen Browsing

MOBICIPNEWS on April 23, 2013

If you are using Mobicip on iOS, you must have disabled Safari and setup the Mobicip Safe Browser. But Safari has all these subtle and nuanced features that users love. On the iPhone or iPod touch, one such feature is the address bar disappearing when a page is loaded.

A subtlety like this doesn't work as elegantly in a browser app as it does on Safari. After trying various options, the Mobicip crew came up with fullscreen browsing, an elegant and arguably better alternative.

When the Safe Browser loads a page, the bars at the top and bottom disappear and a translucent 'fullscreen toolbar' shows up. You can even turn off this toolbar (in Settings) so that it is displayed only when you tap the screen, thereby using the entire screen for browsing. On an iPhone 5, this "makes for a surreal experience," according to one user.

While this may seem to be a trivial feature, such nuances make a big difference to the user, your child presumably. At Mobicip, we are happy to see that such attention to detail is being appreciated. Thank you!

If you have any issues or concerns, please contact support. If you are happy with Mobicip, please leave a quick review in the Apple App Store or Google Play store. Your feedback and help is much appreciated!
