    Introducing a Safari alternative!

    Now the problem with safari is that it takes up an obscene amount of your device's memory, causing heavy apps not being able to be launched correctly without a reboot. This has gotten annoying to countless people, and chances are, including you, if you're reading this.

    Bolt is designed to use a TON less of memory, and after numerous tests, I discovered that bolt took up about a fifth of the memory safari did. The memory also stopped use after bolt was closed, unlike safari.

    Another thing Bolt was designed for was screen space. The top bar hides until you press a button.

    Bolt ALSO doesn't save browsing history. With safari, all history is saved and STORED ON YOUR COMPUTER on the next sync. SO if you're looking at...ah...certain websites. xD

    So here we go:

    Convienience:
    There is definatly a HUGE increase in screen space. I loved it. However, the bottom bar randomly disappears at random times, which holds the back button, so there is nothing to do except find a way to get it back or exit the browser, placing you at your homepage.

    I score this a 7/10.

    Reliability:
    Perfect, except for the already mentioned disappearing bar issue.

    9/10.

    Recommendation:

    YES. i give it a 10/10 for usefulness.

    Conclusion:

    well worth the dollar, but don't spend it if you're happy with safari.

    You shake the device to make the bar appear or disappear btw.

    These apps are so ridiculously easy to make that it's like free money. No joke.

    Very good review, glad to hear it takes up less memory than Safari does.
