Opera Mini 8.0.5 for iOS [update]

  • One thing is preventing me from using Opera Mini as my main browser: Cannot use Pocket.

    Not only is there not the pocket integration that other iOS apps now have through "add to" or "share", but you can no longer add the bookmarklet because you cannot edit the URL of a bookmark in Opera Mini. (Which is weird for other reasons as well).

    Please fix!

  • I don't seem to be able to edit a bookmark's url to create a bookmarklet. Is there a way to do that?

  • I reverted back to opera mini 7.0.5 (I have the backup of it in my hard drive).
    I feel the version 7.0.5 is more comfortable to use;
    +it runs better/smoother on my old iPhone 4.
    +no need to worry of having accidentally swipping to "discover tab" when on data roaming.
    +having ability to edit bookmark's url is a pleasure.
    +copying text from websites is easier.
    The only downside of version 7.0.5 for me is the UI feels old compared to version 8.0.x

    When I need better internet experience, I use safari (it's preinsralled, having good performance and speed, so why left it unused?) so it's a good combo, opera mini 7.0.5 for saving data, safari for full browsing experience.

  • I accidentally updated from 7 to 8 and began editing my history without first reading the change log. As a result I lost some history I did not intend to delete because the grouping UI is not intuitive. I thought I was only deleting the home page, because that is all that was displayed. 😢

    Suggested UI fix:

    Instead of only showing
    "m.facebook.com"

    put a symbol to indicate additional URL components. E.g.:
    "m.facebook.com/*"
    or perhaps better:
    "m.facebook.com/..."

    Thank you.

    @mliq, it works for me. Do you have iOS 8? Have you clicked More and enabled Pocket in Activities screen? After doing so I have a button to add something to Pocket.

    According bookmarklets: could you please give examples of the ones you would like to use and their purpose?
