Firefox Home iPhone App Released for DownloadWritten by John Thompson on July 16, 2010 · Filed under Software
The Firefox Home application for iPhone we’ve been hearing so much about lately has finally made it through Apple’s approval process and in to the App Store.
Available for the iPhone and iPod Touch for free, the Firefox Home iPhone app allows you to take our tabs with you when you’re on the go, so you don’t have to start a whole new browsing session when you leave your desk.
The concept is pretty simple. All you have to do is install the free Firefox Sync add-on for your desktop browser, before creating an account and password which links your tabs between your desktop computer and phone. Then, when you download the Firefox Home app for iPhone and iPod Touch, you simply enter your account information and you’re good to go!
This is a great way for Firefox users to take tabs from their desktop to their mobile phone, and it makes you wonder why Apple are yet to implement a similar feature for Safari on the iPhone with its desktop Safari web browser counterpart.
You may also be interested to know that the Firefox Home iPhone app is rated 17+ for every reason known to man, purely because it can take any tab from your home browser and send it to your phone. Good call there, Apple, always looking out for us!
