Opera Coast 3.01 update: Faster syncing between iPad and iPhone

Hi everyone. I am Alex, and I work as the Development Lead for the Opera Coast team.

I am still catching my breath after the Justin concert in Oslo yesterday, but the Opera Coast team has some updates for you.

We are rolling out an Opera Coast update to the iOS App Store today. The update includes stability fixes and a fix for the users who couldn’t start Opera Coast.

We’ve also improved iCloud syncing, so it should be much faster now. In addition, you will notice that we’ve also fixed some problems when typing Chinese characters in search.

Here’s a look at the changelog:
• Lots of stability fixes
• Scrolling in Gmail works
• Performance improvements for iPhone 4
• Prevents ads from opening the app store automatically
• iCloud sync fixes
• Fixed searching with Chinese keyboards

And, here’s a peek from yesterday. I couldn’t keep my fingers off Opera Coast while at the concert!

      Android has Opera Browser, I think it does not need Coast.

        Of course we have differend Opera versions on Android but Coast is a new concept and really different.

        • Sidney Moraes

          I must agree with you, it is totaly different

      Testing it, it does better than some native iOS app at sites

    Thanks

    I like the • Prevents ads from opening the app store automatically, Facebook’s app has that bug

    • Alexander Remen

      IINM, all browsers have this bug on iOS! It’s super annoying…

      • https://vivaldi.net/unity/profile/chas4/6-blog Chas4

        Some apps have the bug too

    Salut Alexandre et bravo pour ce Coast qui a l’air bien original !

    Waiting for complete data syncing between Opera Win and Opera Mac and Opera Android and Opera Mini and why not Opera Coast…

    • Alexander Remen

      Salut et merci beaucoup! Tu n’as toujours pas de produits Apple?

      Syncing between Opera Coast and the other Opera products is very interesting, but a challenge since we only have web apps, and the others have old style speed dials! How should we solve that?

      For now we have syncing between iPhone and iPad through iCloud, without the need to log in or set anything up, pretty cool as well?

        Je dois faire partie des allergiques à la Pomme :)
        Coast “Web apps” and other products “Speed Dial” could share URLs, so /just/ sync URLs. What sort of internal data is synced between iPad and iPhone ? URL of startpage, history, search ? Other ?

    Could you send an Apple device to use Coast by Opera? :)

    • Alexander Remen

      Hehe, it’s great that you want to try out Opera Coast! Why not install it on a friend’s iPhone? ;)

      • http://www.operaturkiye.net/ Mağruf Çolakoğlu

        We did it but performance is not same as in our hand. Send us one , we share it

    Hey there Alexander Remen, since you’re in charge of one brand of Opera’s mobile browsers (Coast), i wanna ask you: I love Coast in my iPad, but i have a Windows Phone and i also wanna have Opera on it (UC Browser is good, but not enough and IE mobile… Really sucks…). Do you know if you guys on Opera mobile team have plans on porting Opera into WP? I’ll apreciate if you could tell me this, thnx

    The Eureka for Apple iPhone & iPad is finally here. I just wish it were here for sync and integration across brands like Samsung mobile devices.
