Sign up for Opera Mini for iOS beta program!

  • Hello, forum readers.

    Let me first briefly introduce myself. I am Magnus Gasslander, Development Manager for Opera Mini for iOS. I started this position in March 2014, but I’ve been around Opera and Opera Mini for many years.

    Right now, we are looking for people to enroll in our closed beta program for Opera Mini for iOS. We plan to send out builds a few weeks before we close in on a release. We’re looking for your feedback on what we’re developing. We might ask you to try out some wild ideas.

    If you are interested, and feel committed to downloading new builds and giving us feedback, please sign up here! http://goo.gl/forms/3kQN03iLST

    Note: the number of beta testers are limited by Apple so first come, first served!

    Thanks,
    MG

  • I don't know why opera mini cares more about iOS and not about WP..

    No users from iOS responds here.. Whereas wp users are waiting for updates from opera.

  • Hi vigneshlin!

    As you just noticed i waved my magic wand and made sure the windows phone team released a beta just for you 😉

    Just kidding - but you have to respect that these are separate teams and that we are working hard on many parallel projects.

    Happy Windows Phone browsing!

  • Oh sorry dear... I am so sorry for hurting you... I do respect u all..
    Thanks for opera mini on WP and on ios too..

  • It would be nice if we could have both beta app and the stable version at the same time (one way would be to compare how they work and feel)

  • I just installed the ios Mini beta today on my 4s.

    Some background: my most common use of Mini is to admin a college sports board (built in vBulletin 4). I also read news sites and random use of startpage or google. My board has around 1,000 active members and 30,000 page views on a typical day; we topped 114,000 Tuesday - we had a big win Monday! I almost always use "mini" mode rather than turbo.

    First off with Mini: The upgrade went smoothly - all my settings carried over. I've noticed that pages seem to be cleared for memory and need to be reloaded more often. Going "back" doesn't always take me to the same place on the prior page, and I have to scroll around to find it again. Both really slow me down.

    The url prefetch seems to work pretty well even with obscure urls.

    Also, the instagram pics from this WaPost page didn't display. The other pics did.

  • Opera should add MS OneDrive and GoogleDrive to Opera mini and other opera browsers as soon as possible

  • Is there place to discuss the beta?

    Bueller?... Bueller?... Bueller?

  • Couple weeks later, not sure what to think. Is there any reason to beta? Not seeing much love here...

  • And the beta just expired. The regular version reinstalled and kept all my settings intact.

  • Did anyone else try the IOS Opera Mini Beta program? Or was I the outlier?

    If so, did you get any feedback? Did you see a purpose to the IOS Beta?

    I've done a bunch of Betas over the years, but I've never had no feedback...

    Sorry about that JK, you may not be contacted by the Dev's due to their work load, but the feedbacks are indeed taken care of.
