Double Up is a very unique iPad app that we featured in late April. To date, it is the only iPad browser app that offers a dual web page browsing interface, in both landscape or portrait orientation. More recently, the app has received a few updates.
Double Up very much resembles mobile Safari and a recent update has made the toolbar even more Safari-inspired than before. However there are minor differences between Double Up browsing and browsing with Safari. One such example is that Double Up features a dual browsing view where the iPad display is split into two separate web browser windows with one URL/toolbar.
The recent update also added a new optimized layout when in landscape, bringing both web browsing windows side-by-side instead of one browsing window on top of the other.
The app is a great browsing experience for bloggers, for those who want to do comparisons between websites (such as product comparisons), or for those that simply want to multitask.
To browse, simply enter a URL into the toolbar and users can browse as they normally would browse a web page. Tapping once on the second browser window enables use within it and this is also how users switch between browser windows.
The app features bookmarks, back/forward buttons, a refresh button, and a brief settings menu. Double Up also has a settings toggle to make the app enable the last browsing session when the app was last closed.
Double Up is available in the App Store for $1.99.
