Gesture Enabled Browsing on Your Android Device

Share

Last night after getting frustrated with the default browser on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 I installed the Dolphin web browser for Android devices. In installing Dolphin I immediately discovered that it has some great features built-in and many more features that you can add it in the form of Dolphin add-ons.

One of the most outstanding features of the Dolphin web browser is gesture enabled navigation. Using Dolphin you can draw an symbol or letter to make the browser page up, page down, open a new tab, refresh, or go to a specific website. You can use the default gestures or create and assign your own gestures. For example, I set my Dolphin browser to go to my Free Technology for Teachers email account whenever I draw a capital “F” on the screen.

The video below shows gesture enabled browsing in action.

Some of the other Dolphin services that could be very useful for teachers and students are Screen Cut for capturing your screen and Dolphin Google Services for instant access to the Google services you use most often.
