Pavlok Floating Browser for Android

Use a web browser while you play Pokemon Go!

Featured

From the maker

Hi everyone! I'm Maneesh Sethi, the founder of Pavlok.

I LOVE playing Pokemon Go --- but this weekend, I noticed a major problem with the app: when playing the game, it's impossible to do other things on your phone without closing the game.

At Pavlok, we make wearable devices to help people wake up earlier, quit bad habits, and become healthier-- most notably, the Pavlok Wearable Pavlovian Trainer, that uses electric biofeedback to train away bad behaviors (http://buy.pavlok.com)

While playing Pokemon Go, I realized that the floating windows feature from our main app would be very useful---it allowed access to the Pavlok app while using Pokemon Go! So, we repurposed the floating Pavlok app to become a floating web browser --- so you can surf the web and hatch eggs at the same time!

I'd love to get your feedback, and answer any questions. Here is our current change list. Please comment with any features you'd like to see!


Combine URL and Search
Add a search History (and a clear history)
-add Search queries to the history
Add a 'tap to minimize button' so it's clearer how to minimize the window
Close zone = bottom center (instead of full bottom side)
If the URL is the same, and user presses submit, don't reload browser.
When clicking on a URL, automatically highlight all the text.

Thanks!!

This is an absolutely fantastic idea! If only the Pokemon Go app itself had this feature...

Great idea, Maneesh! Now, if I only had an Android. Glad to see things are going well over at Pavlok.
