A versatile and secure web browser for Android
Nova Browser is an unusual web browser for Android devices that stands out for including several additional features on a single app. Specifically, it features a language translator, a virtual private network service, and an OCR document scanner.
More than just a browser
On the platform's main screen, we will find an online search tool, shortcuts to various featured web pages, and buttons for using the different tools featured in the download of the APK file. They are the following:
- Text translator that supports over 100 languages.
- OCR photo scanner for transcribing texts.
- Virtual private network with automatic connection and proxy servers.
- Web browser with a simplified interface and a system of tabs.
It gives you the tools to protect your online privacy with free unlimited VPN, private browsing, and more.
So, this app could certainly offer a good service. However, it has a few downsides. For a start, the VPN connection is pretty lackluster and we can't choose a proxy server, the translator is not that accurate, and the browser could be better. On top of that, there are quite a few ads. So, in this case, the old saying about not biting off more than you can chew rings true.
Requirements and additional information:
- Minimum operating system requirements: Android 6.0.
