  • So does that mean Dolphin will no longer be available on the Market? I refuse to install GetJar just to gain access to an app that's supposed to be available on the Market.
  • +1 not available in the Market? no upgrade. unhappy customer. these exclusivity agreements are crap.
  • I fully agree. GetJar is a PIECE! The only reason that I have Amazon App market is because there is one free app a day and Free is good. The crap that comes with GetJar is garbage!
  • Android is really starting to piss me off.
  • How is this Android's fault?
  • No thanks.. if it's not in the Android Market I'm not going to bother with it. Go screw, Dolphin.
  • Get it to the proper market and I'll give it a go.
  • ummm... what's wrong with GetJar? (Sorry Im new to Android)
  • What's wrong with it is it's yet another market that you have to check to see if things have updated, and Getjar is quite a hassle. Go here, go there, enter this number. What a stupid PITA. I'd rather use stock than deal with another place to check updates.
  • It is coming to the standard market on OCT 23rd. Just hold tight a few days.
  • So they're moving my web browsing... the internet... -Suntan
  • Tried the Dolphin browser and was not crazy about it. Sticking with stock browser in my HTC Thunderbolt!
  • Same here. I've checked out various other browsers, but nothing beats the stock browser for performance. =)
  • The Webzine feature is pretty handy. It's like having a little eReader right in your browser. Just wish we could add more feeds & add our own feeds. Hopefully Dolphin will build that in sometime.
  • While I agree Stock is usually better, HTC's Sense "Stock" browser is quite bad. 4 tabs max and it runs full screen all the time, forcing you to be without your status bar. I have 960 pixels to work with, I can spare 20 for the status bar, thanks. The 4 tab max though makes it quite useless. I guess they have to save the RAM for the 300+MB bloat of HTC Sense.
  • It is a decent browser, but still has no Adblock, and that is what I need. I can't stand trying to read something with any type of annoying animation junk going at the same time...
  • I'd rather check multiple stores for updates than one company have a monopoly on app sales.
  • love dolphin, but won't download this outside of the android market.
  • Getjar is pretty good, they have lots of free apps you have to pay for in the market. Sure it's a bit of a pain having multiple sources, but competition leads to the consumer getting free stuff, which is always good
  • yeah, i got beautiful widget and tapatalk from there. was about to buy it too. hopefully they will implement someway to upgrade the apps.
  • Everybody needs to relax. It's just a way for Dolphin to market their new product and make a little money. It'll be available in the regular Market in a few days, I'm sure.
  • I have used Getjar with no problems, got some apps for free that I would have had to pay for on the Android Market. The only drawback I see is they used to have swiftkey x and I changed phones and they no longer have swiftkey on their site. Also if you download the Getjar app you do not have to put any codes in.
  • yes, i agree. I just got the getjar app like 20 min ago. doesnt seem you are able to change device or update apps.
  • I wonder if dolphin realizes that it is pissing off a lot of dolphin license holders like me. I shouldn't have to install another market to get my update for an app I've purchased the license key to....
  • The Dolphin team is really responsive to users. They are not abandoning Android Market. Relax. :)
  • All of you use Amazon app store in addition to the Market, right? Dolphin is getting money from GetJar for a few weeks exclusivity, and that money allows them to survive. Its not like the Apple app store where every single decent app costs money, and the free version is crippled. So why the bitching?
  • I just downloaded Dolphin Monday on my new Samsung Tab 8.9. The stock browser was a bit lame. So glad to hear about an update on Dolphin. So far I like it.
  • Here's a question. Which does this upgrade, Dolphin HD or Dolphin Mini?
  • Maybe I'm reading this wrong, but is this saying that it will store all the webpages that I visit?
