One week after UC Web launched its hotly anticipated UC Browser for Java phones, the team behind one of the most popular mobile browser on the market made official the Symbian version of the software.UC Browser 8.4 for Symbian has just arrived and is now packed with the same cloud-side apps that have been included with the Java version as well, so expect features such as UDisk and App Gallery to be available as well.
According to UC Web, this version of UC Browser is an even version, “by the first digit after the point. From now on, we are trying to release odd version as feature update, and even version as stable update. This version strategy is introduced by Linux Kernel, which used in almost every server we have.”
With UDisk users can connect their UCWeb account and can save anything from local storage to web resources. The application allows users to save content and keep it safe for 7 days or forever, depending on the amount stored.
For example, UC Web offers users the possibility to save 70MB for long-time storage and 2GB for 7-day storage. However, the developers will make more storage space available in the near future.
App Gallery was initially introduced in the Android version of UC Browser and offers a few apps for download. In fact, there are only three apps that can be downloaded and installed.
There’s Quick Reads, for quick scans on major headlines, as well as Online Bookmarks, which allows users to access their bookmarks while on the move.
Even though the app center only includes three applications, more will be added in the near future, UC Web promises.
Last but not least, UC Browser 8.4 integrates Spanish language support, so people can use the browser’s settings and features using their native language. It is also worth mentioning that the developing team plans to add support for more languages, so stay tuned for more updates.
UC Browser 8.4 for Symbian is now available as a free download via Softpedia and it should be fully compatible with all devices running Symbian S60 1st / 2nd / 3rd / 5th Edition.
