Opera mini for iPhone was launched couple of weeks ago in march and was awaiting approval by the apple app store and guess what? it has been approved by the Apple Applications store staff. The app will be made available for download from today.
To be honest, most of the people were confused if this app will make through the apple iphone app store because it will compete with the iPhone Safari browser (MobileSafari) in terms of features that it have and the service it provides.
In a press release Lars Boiesen, CEO of Opera Software said:
We are delighted to offer iPhone and iPod touch users a great browsing experience with the Opera Mini App. This app is another step toward Opera’s goal of bringing the Web to more people in more places.
Opera mini app’s compression and rendering technology makes it a really suitable browser on slow connections to speed up loading of the webpage such as for users using EDGE or GPRS making it one of the fastest web browser out there.
The Opera Mini App is available for download from the Apple App Store for iPhone and iPod touch and of-course not to mention, its FREE. :)
