    Did anyone else notice this? Did I miss something? I just got a replacement iPad cause my gf smashed and drowned my last one, so I went to redownload it and nothing shows up. If you click the link from Google it says the App is not available in the U.S AppStore.

    Yeah, I loved Terra...Question: If I still have it backed up on my iTunes will it sync back on to my new iPad?

    Found a picture of a girl online that I thought looked exactly like a friend of mine. I saved the pic and emailed it to myself so I could show it to a buddy of mine...oh yea, the pic was of a naked girl...ANYWAY...I left my iPad at home that day, and my girlfriend went into my email and started snooping around and found the pic. It didn't matter what I told her about why I had it, SHE WAS PISSED!! She called me at work, and told me what she was doing. I heard a loud smashing sound, and then our kitchen sink running. She said "It's ruined!" and hung up. I came home to find the iPad in the sink still dripping wet and COMPLETELY smashed, it looked like it got ran over by a truck or something. The backlight was still flickering with its' last breaths. Needless to say, my heart dropped. I took it to one Apple store and they said it would be a $369 dollar replacement. Took it to another Apple store and they swapped it for free right on the spot--told me they don't normally do this, but wished me better luck with this one....I couldn't believe they did that.

    I know the whole "pics or it didn't happen" thing...I took a pic with my crappy camera phone but it didn't turn out at all...I do have the repair chit though...

    Genius said it was the worst iPad he's ever seen...not something I took much pride in!

    THANK YOU APPLE!!!

    Have you noticed the display of the "new" Safari that's supposed to be released with IOS 5? It looks almost exactly like Terra...

    I'll bet Apple saw how great and popular it was and offered to "absorb" them. Kind of like Microsoft used to do....

    I got a replacement iPad but I backed up my previous one and thank goodness Terra transferred over.

    I also hope you dumped that "girlfriend"...

    What a psycho your woman is. I echo the sentiments of an earlier poster...drop that psychotic before she starts putting bunny rabbits in microwaves!

    I just re-installed my old purchase from the AppStore? Are others indicating Terra is no longer available for purchase?

    I just got an update notification. Lots of great changes!! Update installed fine so they must be alive and well. Glad to see it. This is a great browser.

    How's the scrolling now that they can't use the apple-only API call?

    Just downloaded the update and the scrolling is not smooth on sites like engadet. I would avoid this update if you already have it installed.

    Yep, Terra is back in the app store. I still prefer Atomic, but I'll need this as a back up in case iOS 5 annihilates Atomic.

    Scrolling seems fast and smooth, even on Engadget.

    Every since the update, the emulation mode has stopped working. I liked to use Terra in Firefox emulation for the forum sites that have a mobile version. Before the update it would display the desktop version. Now I can only acces the mobile versions on my iPad :mad:

    What do you mean by stopped working? I see the feature is still there (which was the main reason I use Terra and like it so much). I'll be pretty mad too if they rendered that feature impotent...

    One of the forums I visit daily would always show the mobile version in Safari, but Terra allowed me to view in desktop mode with more features. Since the upgrade it doesn't matter which emulation it pick in the "identify as", it only shows the mobile version now.

    Straight from the Terra Developers

    Thank you for contacting us.

    This issue is related to "Identify As" feature, that doesn't work correctly in Terra 1.3. We are expecting a new update with the fix for this bug to be approved by Apple and released any day now.

    Please accept my sincere apology for this inconvenience and let me know if there is anything else I can assist you.

    Best regards,

    Elena

    Hello Elena,
    I installed yesterday the ne version 1.3.1 and since now everything seems fine but i got the impression that the performnce are still having some minor issue.

    Sometime I can't load a web page or it's extremely slow but if I switch to safari the page is loaded normally. I think I might have some issue with my 3G provider but at the moment i'm not sure about, it's too early, I haven't used the new release enough to be honest.

    It would be interesting to collect the impressions of other users as well.
