Firefox Home iOS app released

Fifteen days ago on July 1st, we reported that Firefox had submitted their Firefox Home application to the App Store. Today, Apple has approved the application and it’s now available free of charge for the iPhone. The application requires a Firefox sync account, and when you’re all setup, you’ll get your Firefox history, bookmarks, and the tabs you left open on your computer ready to use on your iOS device.


The app uses Apple’s Safari webkit plugin to view your bookmarks, history, and current open tabs. In case you are wondering, and I’m sure you are, Firefox left out Retina Display and iPad support for some reason. I’m sure they’ll update for Retina soon, but iPad, not so much.
