Opera Coast, a bit Snapchat, a bit Flipboard

The new version of the app is intended to replace large news aggregators


Do you know Apple News, Flipboard, Facebook Notify? Here it is: according to Huib Kleinhout, Opera Coast Product Manager for iOS, you should forget them. So, to do the same thing, the new Opera Coast mobile browser will take care of it.

The "For You" function, available with the latest update, aggregates news from users' favorite sites: "Our goal is to make the news so attractive that you don't need any more apps", says Kleinhout. To do this, they were inspired by Instagram and Snapchat. Those in possession of an iPhone 6s can do Peek and Pop from the home screen to preview the latest news of a particular site.


On this occasion, Opera also launches its browser Opera Mini for iOS. Also in this case, with iPhone 6s you gain an extra function: the icon becomes a shortcut, showing the user his favorite web addresses.
