More and more people are switching from the Facebook Android app to the browser version. This is for a number of reasons such as performance, memory or battery management. While this is actually a very good experience, there are things you are likely to miss, including a dedicated icon in your launcher and separation from your other browsing activities in ‘recents’.
This is where Simply comes in.
Simply utilities the power of Chrome custom tabs to give you an app-like experience coupled with the performance of the Chrome browser (yes, you’ll need Chrome installed!). Simply is fast and lightweight. It has a Facebook-like design with a dedicated button on the auto-hiding app bar to return to the ‘Recent Activity’ view. Facebook links can be automatically handled by Simply (if you choose) too.
Simply is – and always will be – lightweight and free of bloat. While we will add a few menu shortcut links in a future release, we have no desire to create a full fat heavyweight app.
As Simply uses Chrome Custom Tabs, all your existing auto-complete and browsing data is available – as are notifications. If you prefer an app with a completely siloed web view, you should check out the excellent Tinfoil app.
Samsung multi-window is now supported.
