Exciting news from camp Ghostery today – our iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch app is now available to download for your Apple mobile device! Since its soft launch on Tuesday, we’ve seen more than 5,500 downloads!
Mobile browsers on Apple devices don’t have an add-on framework, so we created the standalone Ghostery Mobile Browser. It works much like our plug-in… we look for elements that match our library and block them at your request.
The Ghostery Mobile Browser also contains many features common to popular browsers, like tabbed browsing, cookie and cache clearing, and bookmarking. Ghostery also comes with built-in search powered by Duck Duck Go, a robust and privacy-centric search engine.
Many thanks to steadfast developer Alex, who cranked out the newest member of the Ghostery family pretty much solo.
A version of Ghostery for mobile devices has been long requested by our user community, and we look forward to working with our users to build a mobile browser that combines the best in browser usability with unprecedented privacy controls.
Download Ghostery Mobile Brower now, and let us know what you think!
Happy (mobile) browsing,
Ghostery Product Manager
