    Very good start! I like it. Search bar at the bottom is very handy. BB10 style are beautiful .
    Please make an ad free version, too. Adds are very annoying.

    Standard homepage setting (when start the app) will be fine. Ex. Google or anything else. To be able to set a page or leave it blank.

    Great start and I welcome any app that leverages the PKB. Are those permission to grant there SD Card and media access needed or optional?

    Awesome! I'm using the S7 Edge and Keyboard case, if you added software keyboard compatibility it'd work with my physical-ish keyboard and be perfect! Ads on the top is kinda intrusive too but not too big of an issue. Ya gotta make money somehow.

    Keyboard Browser uses webviews which are based on Chromium. The version depends on your Android WebView app installed on your device.

    @johnb_xp
    I don't understand: your Keyboard Case works well with the app?

    No, the keyboard case is recognized by Android as a virtual keyboard and doesn't work.

    Space/alt-space to scroll down and up would be sweet. I will make the purchase when I get my KEYone.

    Downloading as of now.

    Update: it will take a while to get used to the shortcuts but it is pretty decent. I will send info about any crashes or such. Solid effort mate. Well done and thank you.

    By the way as a PKB based community we should back the dev up. This browser can be so tailor made for BlackBerry PKBs. Just saying.

    I am facing troubles with private browsing: it seems that Google is making everything to block this feature for webviews. I am trying to find a workaround.
