  4. Dolphin Mobile Browser Adds Voice Control for iOS: Party Trick or Value Add?

    If a mobile browser adds voice navigation, and no one is around to talk to it, does it make a dent in the marketplace? Dolphin, the Sequoia Capital funded iOS and Android browser known previously for its gesture based navigation, has integrated Nuance speech recognition technology, the engine behind Apple’s Siri, to launch its “Sonar” voice navigation for iOS. Ranked as the ninth most popular mobile browser globally in February 2012 by StatCounter with 0.78% market share, Dolphin is hardly a juggernaut. After more than a year as an Android-only app, it was finally released for iOS in August 2011 following its 2009 launch. The browser app’s creator MoboTap reports approximately 13 million downloads to date across all platforms, with about one-third that number of current daily active users. The company says that navigation within other mobile browsers is a painful and cumbersome experience, problems which its gesture and voice control aim to solve.
