Double Up Dual-Web Browsing For iPad + Giveaway

by on April 28th, 2010

Double Up is a very unique iPad app and the only iPad browser app that offers a dual web page browsing interface, in both landscape or portrait orientation.

The app very much resembles mobile Safari, but there are of course minor differences. The real difference though is the app features a dual browsing view where the iPad display is split into two separate web browsers with one URL/toolbar.

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.

Using the app is rather simple. To browse, simply enter a URL into the toolbar and users can browse as they normally would. 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.

While the app features that unique dual-browsing experience, it does lose tabbed browsing like mobile Safari. Other than that, the only real issue I had with the app is that browsing sessions were somewhat laggy. It did not cause a large inconvenience but the browsing is noticeably slower, especially when scrolling through sites, as compared to mobile Safari.

Double Up is available in the App Store for $1.99.

    Sounds like a very solid app. Havig the ability to browse on two. Good concept, for the time being. This app should satisfy users I don't like tabs.

    Useful, instead of going back and forth from tab to tab.
