SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- UCWeb, a global leading provider of mobile Internet software and services, today released UC Browser 3.1 for Windows Phone with a bunch of enhancements. UC Browser has risen to become the No.1 browser on WP store, receiving over 17,000 highly rated reviews from U.S. users alone. Now the latest version is available for download on the WP Store (for both WP8 and 7.x).
UC Browser's unique features make it the most popular alternative to default IE browser on Windows Phones. This latest update comes with multiple enhancements including enhanced user experience, greater sharing, the ability to play downloaded music in the background, Portuguese and Spanish support, optimized searching and more.
Greater sharing makes each moment valuable
IE merely allows you to share images via built-in apps, but UC Browser enables you to share images via any apps on your Windows Phone that support photo-sharing. Long press on any image you come across, and select "Share Image" to experience the lovely fun of sharing!
Enjoying music while browsing
This feature makes playing downloaded music while browsing possible, even though the screen is locked.
Fabulous user experience wins a big "WOW"
UC Browser is surprisingly fast and easy to use. Thanks to cloud acceleration and data compression technology, it reduces data consumption and loads web content much faster. It supports more Gestures than IE does, for instance, swipe right to go back a page or left to go forward instantly without refreshing the web content - the simple gestures not only save your time and data, but also deliver great interactive experience. The action bar provides quick access to Multi-tab Management and Homepage, which also satisfies your appetite for speed and convenience.
Other highlights of UC Browser for WP
Smart Download enables you to download files of various formats, and pause and resume the downloads as they please. In other words, it turns your cellphone into a smart and powerful download tool.
IE browser allows only a maximum of 6 tabs, while UC Browser can open up to 9 tabs at the same time, with the ability of swiping to close. It maximizes what you can do with a browser and brings you more possibilities.
You can personalize the Speed Dial, pick a Font for webpages, as well as change the background and skin by selecting pictures from UC Theme Center or your storage. It also offers flexible browsing modes to cater for individual preferences and different environments. Additionally, Night Mode can reduce the screen brightness and ensure your eyes don't hurt; Speed Mode let you surf at super speed without waiting, and Incognito Browsing allows you browse in stealth without being recorded. By entering Visit as PC mode, you can experience the full features of webpages as if on a PC. On the contrary, Text-only Browsing strips annoying content like ads, images,etc., and turn your phone into a complete e-reader.
UC Browser: An early bird on WP platform
The update is yet another milestone UC Browser has reached. Rick Chen, Director of International Business Development at UCWeb, said, "We have set up a dedicated WP team and released UC Browser version 1.0 for WP as early as 2011, right after Nokia unveiled the Lumia 800. We are proud to say that we deliver the best browsing experience on the WP platform." With the release of version 3.1, UC Browser is looking to further solidify its position as the top browser in the WP Store.
