Today, we released the latest version of the free Web browser for iOS – Sleipnir Mobile for iPhone v1.9.

Thank you to all the user of the iPad version of Sleipnir for waiting. You can now browse using the spacious full-screen mode in the iPad version. Also, you can now save Web pages to your device so you can view them offline. Furthermore, you support for file downloads has also been added.


2012/04/23 Addition 3: We have released v1.9.1 with a fix to the issue below. Please update to the latest version.

2012/04/17 Addition 2: We have submitted v1.9.1 to the App Store with fixes to the issues below.

It appears that when transferring the internal database on initial start-up, when the process takes a while it causes the application to crash. Even if the process is stopped while in progress, if you start-up the application again, it will continue from where it processed up to, so it is possible to solve the problem by repeatedly re-starting the application.

2012/04/16 Addition: There have been reports that the application does not start-up after updating in certain usage situations. We are currently working towards solving this issue.

As an emergency measure, you should be able to start-up the application properly by deleting the application and re-installing it(all your data will be erased). If you use Fenrir Pass, you can restore bookmarks by using the sync function after deleting the application.
