RockMelt® Re-Imagines Mobile Browsing With RockMelt for iPhone

Free Mobile Browser Syncs With RockMelt for PC and Mac, Providing Seamless Access to Feeds, Bookmarks and Content Across Devices

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 20, 2011) - RockMelt, the new browser designed for how people use the Web today, has re-imagined the mobile browsing experience with the introduction of RockMelt for iPhone, available starting today in the App Store. RockMelt for iPhone gives users instant access to favorite content and sites with one tap, lets them browse and search quickly and easily, enables them to save web pages for reading later, and helps them seamlessly share and connect with friends online while on the go.

RockMelt for iPhone syncs with RockMelt for PC and Mac to deliver a continuous and consistent experience everywhere. Current RockMelt desktop users will have their favorite sites, View Later items, bookmarks, and more, automatically synced when they first use RockMelt for iPhone.

"From day one, we've known that mobility was a key part of re-inventing the browser, so we're excited to introduce RockMelt for iPhone," said Eric Vishria, RockMelt's co-founder and CEO. "RockMelt for iPhone is designed to make online experiences seamless across devices, so users can instantly access the web content that matters most to them and stay up to date no matter where they go."

Taking Facebook, Twitter and other Sites Mobile

Logging into RockMelt for iPhone immediately syncs content from a user's RockMelt desktop browser so it is ready and waiting for them. By linking the App Edge -- RockMelt's most popular feature -- with RockMelt for iPhone, users will automatically be notified the moment their favorite sites have new updates. Users can also add new sites, manage existing ones, and share content -- all of which is synced seamlessly between their iPhone and desktop computers, down to the number of "unread" updates.

View Later Functionality on the Go

The latest version of RockMelt for PC and Mac, Beta 2, includes a new View Later feature that enables saving of Facebook posts, tweets, links and websites for future reading. RockMelt for iPhone also includes View Later, allowing iPhone users to save long-form or video content to read later when they have more time or when they are back at their computer.

Staying Social and Informed, Without Wasting Time

RockMelt for iPhone features RockMelt's powerful social integration with Facebook and Twitter, allowing users to stay in touch with friends wherever they go by posting status updates and liking, commenting on, and sharing content quickly and easily. Just as with the View Later and App Edge integration, a user's favorite sharing services and accounts are synced across devices, giving users a connected experience wherever they go.

Taking the Browsing Basics Mobile

RockMelt for iPhone lets users browse and search effortlessly. Bookmarks can be added for quick access to frequently viewed pages. With View Later and sharing built into the browser, users can also share or save any websites for later reading with one tap.
