Currently available for free, this app claims to deliver users from “awkward web browsers.”
As indicated by its name, SwipeWebViewer is an app created for the purpose of making browsing on a smart phone to be a simpler, easier activity.
Specifically speaking, SwipeWebViewer lets its users essentially bookmark their favorite websites, then “swipe” through them instead of having to open multiple internet browsing pages.
These websites are first saved according to specific categories (shopping, news, blog, business, etc.) and then easily reopened whenever desired. The free version of SwipWebViewer currently enables users to view up to six websites in a row through this swiping action, but a paid version of the app is also available that increases this page limit to nine.
Additionally, web pages that have been cached already can even be viewed offline. Operation of the app appeared smooth overall, and no blatant operational problems were found.
However, it should be noted that the current version of SwipWebViewer does not currently support the ability to view any video-based websites (such as YouTube).
While this may be frustrating for some, many such sites currently have their own apps that could be easily used in order to circumnavigate this relatively minor problem.
Appearance and Layout
This app’s appearance is about what would be expected for an app of its stated features. The purpose of the app is to increase web browsing navigational ease, and SwipeWebViwer as a whole does that decently well.
The layout of the app is fairly intuitive and didn’t require much time to get used to at all. However, even though it was simple to understand, I found that the appearance of the layout of SwipeWebViewer was a bit more cluttered than optimal.
A cleaner layout would definitely have increased the aesthetic value of the app and have been very much appreciated.
As mentioned previously, SwipeWebViewer is currently available for free through Google Play.
Overall, its value is arguable good, and this app will definitely appeal to anyone who is frustrated with current web browsing app options. That said, however, anyone who doesn’t have any complaints against more traditional web browsers probably won’t find himself with any need to download SwipeWebViewer any time soon.
Even though it is an app featuring an interesting concept, it is still an app that will be seen as simply unnecessary by many individuals.
SwipeWebViewer (Free) requires Android 2.2 and up. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
