Hello

I'm struggling to find a specific browser app as there is so many out there in the App Store.

Im looking for a page specific browser that:

1. When opened it immediately goes to a set website, like a homepage I suppose

2. The app will be full screen, no search/address bar etc required

Anyone know of an app that can do this?

Cheers
Dan

most browsers can do that i.E. safari ? FireFox?

for safari make sure in "view" menu you have no toolbars selected to appear and then choose "customize" remove the search bar and any other things you don't want - then hit the green button on the top left corner and you should have a full screen browser with no other menu's

You can move the mouse to the menu bar still to access any menu - not sure why you would want something that bare bones but that should do the trick?

Thanks for your reply mikzn

Sorry I should have mentioned I'm trying to do this on an iPhone/iPad

From the springboard on my idevice I just want to tap on an app that will instantly open my set url in full screen mode (in this case, a webpage hosted on a small server I have)

Cheers

Ann app like you're requesting would take mere minutes to create. If you're still needing some help PM me, I'll build you an enterprise distributed app real quick.
