If anybody is here looking for information about what happened to Opera Coast because Opera didn't post any news about it, here it is: Coast has been discontinued according to some ex-employees/business contacts/friends(?) on Reddit.
kaysb: Opera removed of most of the developers positions in the Oslo office last year, and with that, killed development of things like Coast.
gsnedders: AFAIK, most of the people heavily involved in Coast left long before that, and there was some small skeleton team left. But I could be wrong, it's been a long time since I've spoken to anyone who was much around it.
demonstro: Currently working with one of the designers. They're all out. An Android build was just around the corner, but now it will never happen.
kaysb That could be. My memory of that period is already a bit foggy
I quit my job at Opera 5 days before the rest of my team (Core Services and Operation, or what ever the name was at the end) was told they would shut down the development in Oslo.
I did have a veeery small part of Coast; I designed, implemented and maintained the server side of Coast Card, the bookmark sharing built into Coast.
I hope the rest of the company is still doing great, but I must say that it is a bit of an eye opener to see the company from outside. Or, to be more precise, not see the company at all, even as a interested hard core user. After they removed the first-run page informing about the latest changes etc. there is very little that engages users in the product.
To be honest, I am really big fan of Opera for desktop, but most of it I like Opera Coast. It works really smooth. But something goes really wrong. Today my default browser for my iPhone, which running iOS 10.3.1, is completely useless. Opera Coast crashes any given time I try to start the application! I am asking for solution which will fix this issue. Does Opera team provides support for Coast yet?
The aim of Coast is to minimise the user interface, so only two buttons are ever-present on screen: a Home button that takes you to a home screen similar to the iOS home screen, with favourite and recently visited sites represent by icons, nine to a screen (swipe left to reveal more). This is also where you’ll find the unified Address and Search bar for locating more content.
Recent sites are also accessible via a button in the bottom right-hand corner. Tap this and they’ll appear as thumbnails, with two further buttons to investigate: the ‘I’ button provides a safety rating for the site (Coast will also provide a more visible alert for sites it deems as unsafe), while the Share button lets you tweet, Facebook, Message, email or print the page, plus add it to your home screen as a favourite.

We're terribly sorry you experienced this. Can you give us some more details about your iOS 10 upgrade, like:
Did you update over the air? Did you have little free space on your phone when you upgraded?
Did you get this dialog during upgrade? http://wpuploads.appadvice.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/appdeleted.jpg
If you sync via iCloud, it's possible that icloud still has your speed dials. You can try to delete the app and reinstall it. Other than that I don't have any good advice, since app data is unavailable to normal users, there are no easy solutions...
Best of luck!
Funny. I went back to Coast for the first time since November, and wanted to see if you ever fixed this issue. Nope. And look how well it's working for Coast: none of my friends use it, because when they saw the frame on a shared link, they immediately assumed you were violating their privacy. Perhaps it's time to make a browser that helps the users as opposed to hiding things from them, frustrating them, and worst of all, hurting the brand name of Opera.
Sigh. You guys are so great (Opera VPN is fantastic) but sometimes you just can't get out of your own way.
