Bolt Browser Updated to Beta2


Makers of the Bolt browser, Bitstream, have announced an updated version of the browser this week at CTIA. Tons of updates have been built-in, thanks to feedback from beta testers all over the globe. The new version brings the app to Beta2. Key new features:

  • Significantly improved BlackBerry scrolling speed and control
  • A new 3XL (extra large) magnification mode with content 33.3 percent bigger than in 2XL
  • Double tap approach to select links on touchscreen devices like the BlackBerry storm (eliminates inadvertent clicks)
  • Wi-Fi auto-selection as default option when Wi-Fi is both enabled and available
  • Save and view pages locally on the phone
  • Support for folders in favorites
  • A new landscape viewing feature
  • Improved magnifier dragging in split screen mode on the BlackBerry Storm

Enhancements in Bolt Beta2 based on feedback from beta users:

  • Improved video quality on mpeg4 capable devices
  • Improved scrolling speed on image-rich pages
  • A user preferences page to reduce menu clutter, especially useful on BlackBerry smartphones where the native menu structure, without sub-menus, is utilized
