Description
Cake is a better search and web browsing experience, designed for your smartphone that helps you find answers FAST. SWIPE FORWARD THROUGH SEARCH RESULTS No more jumping back-and-forth between a page of search result links and the websites. Just swipe forward through your results, or pull down the header to jump ahead. Super easy. PRIVACY PROTECTION If privacy is your jam, Cake has you covered. Go 100% incognito and search without a trace – unlike “privacy” mode in Chrome and some other browsers, Cake DOES NOT collect your anonymous browsing history on our servers! Cake will auto-close any open private tabs 3 minutes after you close the app. CUT THROUGH THE NOISE WITH AD-BLOCKER Get the streamlined content you want without the noise and clutter of ads and pop-ups. SAVE MONEY WITH RAKUTEN CASHBACK Earn money when you shop with Cake. Our cash back program, powered by Rakuten (formerly Ebates), alerts you with deals and discounts as you browse, making it easy to earn cash back for purchases you make through Cake. Talk about a sweet deal! BROADER RESULTS WITH LESS EFFORT Search multiple services at once for the best of the web—videos, images and shopping. CUSTOMIZE YOUR SEARCH Personalize your search results by selecting and reordering your preferred search services. SWIPE THROUGH BOOKMARK COLLECTIONS Stop retrieving bookmarks one-by-one! In Cake, simply swipe through your bookmarked sites and organize them into Collections. CUSTOMIZE YOUR APP ICON Personalize your Cake app icon (yeah, you can do that!). Choose from a library of icons to display on your iPhone home screen dock. CAKE SEARCH WIDGET Jump into a Cake search from OUTSIDE the app! Force press the Cake icon to search in a new tab or a private tab, or add the Cake search widget to your Today Screen. FIND ON PAGE + SWIPE Find and highlight specific terms within a webpage to save time while searching. CAKE BONUS: Swipe between pages to see your term highlighted across MULTIPLE search results! Take the Cake challenge! Put Cake in your iPhone dock for 1 week and see how it compares to your current web browser—we bet you’ll never want to go back!
Best Browser IMO.
by CPNickName03 on 2019/07/19 17:19
For mobile I've been using DuckDuckGo for awhile now to protect my privacy, but with Cake I now use DDG as my search engine and all is well. Cake’s search flow is amazing, very very fluid and nice to use. Only suggestion is to allow users to control the text size of the search bar, as well as to be able to minimize the top address bar all together. I feel like an old person whenever I use a phone with big text!
Assumptive App
by Thankfully I'm paid on 2019/07/19 15:09
Voice search is unavailable Top result isn't always best. And, most appealing to look at isn't always best. Good idea
Easy to use
by Art Aja on 2019/07/18 13:12
This is very easy to keep track of what you have on your tablet or telephone it’s a good idea to use it to keep stuff organized
Honestly Very Satisfied
by Bkxgmblncjjv on 2019/07/18 04:30
I saw an ad about it and i decided to just watch it and then check it out because it caught my interest. It makes searching seem easier than it was before so it does its job well. The feel of the app overall is also very nice and satisfying and has some really unique features. I recommend giving it a shot
Very efficient
by Kronos Scum of Space on 2019/07/17 23:19
Got it just to try at first but then noticed how good it works it seems faster and looks cooler than my safari browser, 10/10 would recommend
New
by fhostface_ninja on 2019/07/17 17:55
I’ve replaced safari with this it’s way way better! LOL
Wow
by kdkxje on 2019/07/17 15:40
This web browser is so convenient
Bookmarklets?
by Warriorturtle on 2019/07/17 09:07
How would I know execute a jaclvascript bookmarklet from cake?
Neat
by gerald the yam on 2019/07/17 01:51
Love it because I still have everything that’s in google chrome, but with the freedom of going through the sites and having them open without opening new tabs. The formats very comfortable and kinda boosts my mood tbh. YouTube works great on it too. I don’t usually write reviews, but this app definitely deserves one.
Good Browser
by Andrew M Zimm on 2019/07/17 01:24
This browser is extremely easy to use. It may be a small detail but I really like how you can change the app’s home screen icon. It is convenient how you can choose your interest and be regularly updated on them. Overall 5/5, good download.
So nice
by nickymanage on 2019/07/16 05:05
It’s just the tiny details that make this so amazing!
Really Good!
by marshimo on 2019/07/15 02:35
So i saw this on a Youtube ad and it looked promising.So i downloaded it and it is really amazing. You can customize your background and even the app icon which is crazy its probably as good or even better then safari and chrome 10/10
The best mobile browser
by FireForger0312 on 2019/07/14 20:01
Greatly built unlike the pc to mobile search engines(google chrome and safari) and is specifically made for your phone
Amazing browser
by Tomnsuzi on 2019/07/14 16:47
Finally a browser that makes surfing web on a phone fast an easy ! Just a simple swipe to the right brings up all relevant pages already loaded!Truly great browser. A must try!!
Cake app
by Dollhousrs2016 on 2019/07/14 12:49
I do like the way that the webpages appear on my iPhone. And the uploads are faster. I just downloaded this; this morning.
Awesome
by tonamo.thebay on 2019/07/13 17:56
My favorite browser for sure. Feels more open.
Absolutely Ground-Breaking Browser!
by AllKE on 2019/07/13 13:41
I downloaded Cake a week ago and I haven’t looked back! The swiping is SO much better than safari’s normal back and forth. It’s always so easy to find trending topics.
It’s awesome
by jshfnsnd on 2019/07/13 02:54
Best app ever, I use it for everything and I love it!
Really nice, clean browser
by \m/ d(-_-)b \m/ on 2019/07/13 01:02
Cake is a really convenient browser that allows you to really customize your experience right from the get-go. You can choose your own search engine to leave on your homepage for simple searching. Cake allows you to rotate through search results very seamlessly, or see all of your search results together in one screen. Allows you to also pick your favorite news and media outlets and gives you seamless updates when your favorites add a new story. Only complaint is the latency when you first open the app. Very slow off the jump. Overall very solid browser (4.6/5)
Great app
by megamanjim12093 on 2019/07/10 17:45
This app is really cool because it stops ads from popping up and all that yep it is really cool app
Best browser on the App Store
by Daniel Cher. on 2019/07/10 13:06
Cake is the best browser in the App Store by far, because of it’s simplicity and convenience. All it takes is a swipe to go from search result to search result. Plus, when you search something, (Ex. T-Shirt on sale) the first thing that comes up is a website that is showcasing the thing you searched for. It’s perfect!
I like it so far
by @youngkaiz on 2019/07/10 02:07
Some things I still don’t know what it’s for..
Great it can be blue to Match my hair!
by lex 🐹 on 2019/07/10 00:44
This app is great, it’s the best out there.I love the step by step introduction and how you can change the apps color to match your background. I’m so impressed that I’m going to tell my not blue haired cousin about it. There’s no hassle and you can choose what search engine you want to use I personally use DuckDuckGo.Thanks for taking the time to read my review. -blueberry
Great!!!!
by Rg_Tuna on 2019/07/10 00:32
Its super simple and easy to use
The perfect Mobile Browser?
by Agent Xenon on 2019/07/09 23:21
It’s incredibly easy to use, and it’s many improvements over traditional web browsers put it miles ahead of Safari or Chrome for me. It feels like (with the exception of Microsoft Edge’s useless bells and whistles, ooh look I can highlight how useful) Web Browsers have kinda stagnated over the years with the exception of 3rd party extensions, and Cake is absolutely moving towards innovation and going beyond what’s expected. Loving Cake so far, can’t wait to get more acquainted with it.
It dose everything it says but there’s just one thing...
by Water Star2398 on 2019/07/09 20:56
Like I said it dose everything is says but, when I tried to sign in my google account though the cake search engine it technically let me “sign in” but it never shows up as your account after words, just the cake ver of the google front page before you sign in or search but that’s my only “beef” with it otherwise I like it, it’s easy to use and helpful. EDIT what I would like it to do after you sign in is that the home page with the search bar shows your account after logging in like it would normally do on google I hope that makes sense
AWESOME
by Nico Grassi on 2019/07/09 08:32
Great app and so easy to use. After using it for two minutes I instantly deleted my Google Search app! Good work!
iPad support
by jkcanewton on 2019/07/08 14:17
Unique browser...needs a dedicated iPad app to make it even better.
Like it A LOT...
by ao.alyssa on 2019/07/08 07:30
I only saw the add on YouTube and was about a minute in and I was pretty much sold. It’s a very creative and easier way to search things on the web. The whole app is visually appealing and easy to navigate.
Yummy
by cake devouer on 2019/07/08 02:39
This is the best of the best, And it’s delicious
Needs to be compatible with Ecosia
by sarahcain10 on 2019/07/08 00:34
I think that cake is a great idea and the browser functions well. However, I have not found out a way to make Ecosia my default search engine on the app. It is very important to me that I use Ecosia to death the web, so for the time being I will not be using Cake until it becomes compatible with Ecosia search engine.
No support button/ticket?
by NotoriousZero on 2019/07/07 18:26
Wish I could send Cake a support ticket on a few things but don’t see anywhere to do that. If there is one, needs to be more accessible. I wish the home/main menu could be customized more. I don’t wanna see stupid suggestions based on normies. I like he explore by categories tho, so if I wanted to dive Into the pit of society then I could but I’d like to have that “Home” page blank. All around it has a small learning curve & new muscle memory to work on but seems pretty cool so far. I like it & can’t wait to see how it evolves in the future. (Hopefully they won’t fall into the same pit MySpace/Facebook did)
It’s good
by Rdhxturdhlfudxcyductemma on 2019/07/07 03:08
It’s as good as any other browser I use and I love the swiping ability I was looking for games I should get for my new pc and once I was done with one website I could just swipe to the next it was so easy definitely recommended!
**** all the other apps
by person12366350 on 2019/07/07 02:36
This is a really good app it puts the things from computers on phones and makes it.. wait how do I explain this uhh well it’s really good and compacts things that you would get from a search on a laptop on your phone and it’s really good in my opinion u should get it if you want it instead of safari or google
Good but load time.
by Doge da doge on 2019/07/06 18:40
I like this browser much more than safari it allows you to quickly reach relevant results rather scrolling through an endless list. While that is great I have one complaint. Every time I start up the app it takes significantly longer to load the home page or whatever page I’m on than safari. I have waited up to 7 seconds waiting for the home page to load. I know this sounds like a first world problem (because it is) but sometimes I need to urgently look something up. I really hope this wait time is shortened in future updates.
Great for iPhone!
by crillyjack on 2019/07/04 17:39
Better than chrome
Y E S!!!!!
by hinvfybnkbvunnko on 2019/07/04 14:31
this app is GREAT! Not even an understatement, i swear. I was recently looking for new nose rings and kept getting so annoyed with the whole shopping tab and such LOL. This app, no shopping tab, i can just swipe straight through legit websites such as amazon and etsy in SECONDS to find a cute nose ring!! no more hassle through the shopping page and no more having to click in and out of websites. I replaced Safari with this, this app is great! wouldn’t change a thing, worth all 5 stars!!
Great browser but I found a bug
by Jimmydabosh on 2019/07/03 16:10
I love this browser. You can set a whole bunch of favorite sites and it will open them all in tabs ready for you. It’s fast and smooth and everything works EXCEPT when I go to edit favorites the edit button doesn’t work, I have to go back out to collections then back in and it works. It’s not a deal breaker but it’s a glitch for sure. Fix that and it’s literally perfect for my uses.
Yeet
by Freddie is our queen on 2019/07/03 06:57
Very good app but kind of hard to get used to
love it
by Vasi saqib on 2019/07/03 04:27
LOVE. IT
Good potential, bad reputation
by Troll Guest on 2019/07/02 16:34
I give a three because this app could have been a great browser but ruined by the advertisements.
Slow but good
by Min-crooft on 2019/07/02 16:09
The loading is VERY slow
Good.... but need one small change
by Wfchcsvdsffsfgtsfbc on 2019/07/01 13:05
Cake is a good web browsing app that is WAY more intuitive then safari Or anything else for mobile phone browsing but the app had an issue. If you want news or want to read an article that’s fine. The app works great. But when your on the middle of an argument about something with your friends and look up how tall a mountain is or something like that, cake brings you to a random page input it and not the fast easy answer you want. Please make the change and this will be the best web browser in the world.
Pretty nice
by PEWDIEPIE IS BEST on 2019/07/01 02:59
As far as search browsers go, this is by far the greatest. I have one complaint though. The search engine that plants trees, Ecosia, is not on my list of search engines. I love cake but I want to be able to choose from a variety of search engines, not just google, bing, and duck duck go. Thank you for reading! I hope you make some changes soon
Simple.
by NightmareFK on 2019/06/30 18:33
Easy to use. Nuff said.
Not bad but...
by <Nanashi> on 2019/06/30 14:33
So far I’ve been using this new app browser for about two weeks and it’s been pretty good. It great how it allows you to swipe between tabs. And it shows you relative items matching your search, which saves a lot of time. The only thing I’m having trouble with is the fact that it’s slow to start up. And I checked my speed for my internet and it’s fine. I also tried my safari browser and it boots up way faster.
Very Promising
by CluckingTerp on 2019/06/30 03:47
I was convinced by the very utilitarian marketing and decided to give it a try. I am a staunch Apple power user and have irrationally held onto Safari for a long time. This browser might change that. It is a new, innovative browsing experience. It really could change the game. However, it isn’t without its bugs. I have an iPhone 8 Plus, and there are frequent issues with the animations and sometimes actions don’t register. That being said, if the bugs can be ironed out, and the app refined, this could change the game.
Easy 5 Stars
by Mudkip Bro on 2019/06/29 05:47
Simply just one of the best search engines! As blocking and easy way to discover what your looking for! But one thing that doesn’t make me completely switch is that I can’t find news about what I’m interested in like google. I wish I can just follow topics and then have them show up in the home screen! Also another future I’d like to see is a “dark mode” in which the background is darker, or better yet, the background color could be adjustable. It kinda hurts to see the white background all day and would be a nice change to see a different color! Nonetheless it’s a very great app!
Awesome
by cuteitemslover on 2019/06/28 19:21
Super cool I love the app it’s way easier to look for things
Cool.
by dhdxbhv on 2019/06/28 11:25
I like the fact that you can change the cake icon
Great App!!
by Gisela M. on 2019/06/28 09:29
I very much enjoy this app! I have noticed it is faster than my normal browser, which is Google on the Safari app, and I absolutely love the little icons I can pick!
Fix this!!
by cassebtano on 2019/06/27 20:39
Great fun app I love it. Although it crashes all the time!
Rating
by Amazing18265 on 2019/06/27 13:41
This app as an amazing alternative to the Chrome and Safari app and has an amazing set up. I do appreciate the work put into it. I saw an add for Cake and thought I’d try it out, and I was indeed impressed.
Usage
by Merh? on 2019/06/27 00:46
I decided to download cake after seeing a few ads for it on YouTube. I genuinely enjoy the experience so far aside from one thing (hence the 4 stars). I much prefer a dark/night mode when looking at content. My examples here would be reddit and YouTube. Because reddit features a similar layout in some ways, I feel like cake could implement a night theme. Anyway, great app!
I love it
by 27akm08 on 2019/06/26 23:39
When I got cake it stoped me from using safari cause it was better in every way
Not very good
by klnnvyin c on 2019/06/26 14:38
I don’t like the fact that you are forced to follow terrible websites or media outlets in the beginning. There’s not many choices and I certainly don’t want to follow fox or CNN or the wsj or the bezos post. (Washington post). The “ad block” feature doesn’t work at all I get ads constantly, normal ads, pop up ads, ads that take me to a new page. Finally the collections option to store certain webpages in doesn’t work at all for videos I’ll be watching a video and halfway through it will stop playing and become a blank page then I have to find it again and you can’t just click on which webpage you want to go to in that collection you have to swipe all the way to that webpage starting from the first page you added to the collection. This is a good idea but it’s executed terribly.
Decent
by memeulezz on 2019/06/26 02:52
Takes getting used to but pretty good
I love cake
by DubIsLegend on 2019/06/26 00:40
One the best browsers I have ever used. I suggest it to all my friends and keep up the good work guys
I LOVE IT!!❤️❤️
by GameRev. on 2019/06/25 02:22
It’s so easy to find what your looking for and fast. I would recommend for anyone who hates their browser on their phone.
User friendly and attractive design
by KLID KLAZOO KLANSMEN on 2019/06/25 02:05
Nice
Thanks Esther
by Jajxudhefa on 2019/06/25 00:27
Usually skip ads but Esther’s charisma made me watch all the way through. Keep it up!
Scrolling is weird but the app is cool👍🏾
by Chazzyn on 2019/06/24 17:59
The scrolling is very difficult for me to use and I wish it had a lock on whatever page you are on so it won’t go to the next one that’s frustrating but other than this the app is fast and I do recommend it for people who like quick results.
Great app
by cccsgcdyfdfhhafh on 2019/06/24 00:29
I love this app, with that said there are a few things I would change. One, being swipe down to refresh. Two, I would love a dark mode. And three, the use of bookmarks would make this app wonderful.
Good app, but some websites take forever to load
by Charizard3141592 on 2019/06/24 00:21
For example gmail
Great app but not perfect... yet
by PizaBoy02 on 2019/06/23 02:12
This app is great. It really is optimized for phones and makes it way easier to search what your looking for. What makes it not perfect is it feels very slow at times, ESPECIALLY SWITCHING TABS!! Sometimes it feels like an eternity clicking that tab button and waiting for my others tabs to show. Also, I thinking it would be really great to add that Ecosia web browser, you know to plant those trees! I also really love the feature of private tabs disappearing after 3 minutes of a closed app. It’s really been a life saver if you know what I mean. The app really does feel phone exclusive, but not enough. I really don’t know how it could be done but I know y’all developers can figure something out. I really like the app but I can see other people not liking it, so I suggest a feature that would really sell it to others! All in all, great app!
Cake is awesome
by Taig22 on 2019/06/23 00:53
Cake is really awesome because it is really fast and you can customize the app logo. You can swipe between websites really fast. I tested it and it will open Facebook 2 seconds faster then google
OMG!
by MusicLover961 on 2019/06/22 20:22
This app is the BEST way to look stuff up with. It’s fast, easy, convenient, and so much more! So if your tired of waiting on the loading line to finally reach the end or ads popping up left and right, then get cake. The search engine that is perfect for EVERYONE!
Keep crashing
by hottersummer on 2019/06/22 04:38
Keep crashing if I scroll to the bottom of a webpage
Cake is the best

Works well but...
by HonestReviewer131 on 2019/06/21 01:30
When I first saw this on insta, I was like yeah, I have a crap browser, lemme get this one, and it works great 10/10 but, whenever I click on a notification from cake, it opens but nothing loads, and when I touch the screen, it goes black for a second and crashes, great app, only bug I’ve encountered so far, I’m on an iPhone XR for anyone wondering
Cake is so bad

One more thing needed
by Aleekbonbon on 2019/06/19 01:05
As a browser it's amazing and I really do like the concept. But if they can incorporate a dark theme mode while browsing regularly then it'd take this app to perfection for me.
Cake, the best browser out there
by Bswnoah on 2019/06/18 03:26
Cake has honestly gotta be one of the best browsers out there for mobile, way better than safari is. It amazes me all of the simple things you can do that’s just a huge time saver. For example, wanna do something shopping wise? After typing in your search click the shop button and you’ll instantly be searching in the shop section for the certain thing you typed in, this also goes for news, videos, images, etc. You’re also able to customize your home screen with a variety of different images, all of which are amazing. Also it has a feature named quick jump (which is optional) where whenever you type something in it automatically takes you to the first result. It also lets you change the app icon and the search engine (which you can do on any browser but it’s still a cool browser) and the private browser is genius, if you turn this on it automatically deletes stuff after 3 minutes of inactivity. Which is well good for certain situations (y’all know what I’m talking about). The app honestly just feels faster than any other browser and it also has flash support so you can easily play things like Tetris just in your browser and it’s amazing. TL:DR: great browser with many good features, 9.5/10
Amazing
by Your Boy Jack W. on 2019/06/17 17:14
Everything you need in a browser app.
EZ to use, fast & you can change app icon!
by Nexus479 on 2019/06/17 07:27
I normally don’t review apps, but after using Cake for about a day, I can honestly say I’m really impressed. Swiping to view different websites over your 1 search topic is way easy & it was really surprising to see my habit over clicking back and scrolling to see my search results like I do with Chrome—but I didn’t have to! My search result was RIGHT THERE. Very useful quickly looking up something if you’re time-limited or have a tight schedule. I LOVE the idea of switching the app icon. I’ve never had an app that has let you pick what it looks like on your home screen.
Slow
by neudmshualb on 2019/06/17 01:38
The app is slow. It would be a great search engine if it wasn’t slow.
Yeee
by oliyeet on 2019/06/16 12:00
More convenient and doesn’t just give you stock photos of kittens
Cake tastes good
by Dwight Kert Schrute on 2019/06/15 14:33
You can’t eat the app, like it doesn’t taste like cake it tastes like a phone that hasn’t been cleaned but the app works
Icon and search engine
by ysbturhhd on 2019/06/15 13:01
I love that I can change the icon to what I like the best for my home screen, more apps should do this so the user would feel more involved. I wasn't the biggest fan though if the fact that you can't add custom search engines by copying and pasting a link. All in all though great app.
The outlook
by jackjackyyss on 2019/06/14 00:19
It looks very new and different. I want my phone to look futuristic and this makes me feel like I am on an app everyone should use.
10/10 ..... well 5/5
by Applesgood on 2019/06/13 22:10
Amazing browser allows the user to skip all the back and forth link clicking. Why wouldn’t you use this app unless you don’t like the save time looking up answers. If you’re open minded about a new browser, then you should give it a chance.
Very good! 👍🏼
by ᗴᒪᒪᗩ on 2019/06/13 12:58
My brother showed me this app and I think it is amazing! It’s very helpful when I’m in need to search something up.It is nice that you can change the logo as well. I rate this app a 5 star!

It’s the best
Great App
by E Evans Cass on 2019/06/13 00:53
Saw an add on youtube the other day, downloaded it, and about a month later I was going through my apps trying to free space up. Long story short, I deleted my google app
My opinion

This is a very useful app I use it all the time it has great features
Wow!

It’s acually very good to my surprise! It works amazingly!!!’
Dark Mode?
by Enthira on 2019/06/12 07:01
First off, I love this browser! It’s super fast and easy to use and it’s quite innovative. The one thing I would appreciate is having a dark mode for non private browsing. Sometimes, when I’m researching something or looking at recipes I like to have the option to look at my browsing history, but I also like the dark background that private mode provides. Having the option to have a darker coloring without having to use the private mode would be greatly appreciated. (Maybe the option to choose a background color would be nice!) Obviously apple will be releasing a dark mode for IOS, so I’m hoping it will be implemented then. Overall, the browser works well and I haven’t had any problems with it over the many months I’ve been using it.
Like it a lot
by Parrothead672 on 2019/06/11 18:17
It’s a new way to search the web. It’s like Pinterest but a browser. If you are more of a visual person you will love it.
Meh

I have an iPhone 6 (not the 6s) By no means is this phone old as it is not a legacy phone(firmware cannot be upgraded to current release) Extremely slow for 12.2 Google searching doesn’t load all of the page at once and takes up too much time to load into the app. Got some stuff to work on, but nice app I like that you added a modern touch to the standard safari and added useful features, but you gotta work on the compatibility and how fast the app runs and loads websites I would love a developer response so I know that you read this long review and acknowledged the pros and cons of this app. Lastly I like that you made the app size around 80 megabytes and allowed the user to change the icon. Nice user interface. Now I don’t want to take too much of your time, but here’s my review for this interesting app.
Great App! Just needs more features.
by JerryP1516 on 2019/06/10 22:53
I’ve been using this mobile browser for a short time now and I really enjoy using it. There are a few features that I think could make it much better! 1. The white does get a tad boring and plain. Some effort could be added to bring a Dark theme or customizable colors to the app to make it suit the user better. I love how you can change the App Icon and the Banner though!! 2. I also often find myself asking Google some very simple questions that are often answered by a short paragraph before all of the links are presented. I also check game scores very often. An awesome way the app could be improved is finding a way to make the first page that pops up, a summary of whatever you’re researching or looking up online! (unless the user types in an actual link) These are just some things I think could relate help the app become an amazing mobile browser worth five stars! I’m sure some of this is already in the making, but great app overall in its early stages!
Helpful for saving time and great app but...
by spaceman 1000 on 2019/06/10 22:46
Great app but 2 problems I have an IPad and I usually have it horizontal. When I use cake I have to use It vertical and usually annoys me. My second problem is that cake can’t fit my entire screen and the black bars are annoying. But other than that great app
Like it But
by twremington on 2019/06/10 22:41
I hate that it serves me ads when I type in things on the browser bar. I’d rather pay 5 or 10$ per year to have the app be ad free. Otherwise I love it but I think I’m going to move on cuz I can’t stand the ads whether it be JCP as a quick site which I don’t care about (and others) and suggested searches come up based on a couple letters that are an ad! You have a perfect app if u get rid of this or have the option to- I removed the app until I have the option to go ad free
No good iPad version—DO NOT DOWNLOAD FOR IPAD!
by BigD1987 on 2019/06/10 20:57
I’m only reviewing this browser and giving it one star because it needs to be said: This app STILL does not have a good iPad version/interface, which is unacceptable at this point. The iPad screen for this app is just a glorified iPhone screen, and it’s pathetic. They should change this ASAP, as long as they don’t overwork their employees.
Mediocre at best
by evalsreggin9696 on 2019/06/10 03:52
This browser has made statements saying that this is the better option than Google Chrome Or Safari . I tried it for a week, worst week ever. When I opened this, I thought “maybe it’ll be smoother than safari or chrome.” It takes too long to load up searches, and when it does it takes you to the first page on the search page instead of the search page. I didn’t expect this happen and it made browsing a lot more frustrating and time consuming. The week I had this it made every day searches take a lot more time then they should’ve taken when using Safari or Chrome. The speed of the app can’t keep up with the layout it was given. Overall, I wouldn’t switch over to this if given a choice. Safari and Chrome are better options
Cake, the best browser out there
by Bswnoah on 2019/06/18 03:26
Cake has honestly gotta be one of the best browsers out there for mobile, way better than safari is. It amazes me all of the simple things you can do that’s just a huge time saver. For example, wanna do something shopping wise? After typing in your search click the shop button and you’ll instantly be searching in the shop section for the certain thing you typed in, this also goes for news, videos, images, etc. You’re also able to customize your home screen with a variety of different images, all of which are amazing. Also it has a feature named quick jump (which is optional) where whenever you type something in it automatically takes you to the first result. It also lets you change the app icon and the search engine (which you can do on any browser but it’s still a cool browser) and the private browser is genius, if you turn this on it automatically deletes stuff after 3 minutes of inactivity. Which is well good for certain situations (y’all know what I’m talking about). The app honestly just feels faster than any other browser and it also has flash support so you can easily play things like Tetris just in your browser and it’s amazing. TL:DR: great browser with many good features, 9.5/10
it's really refreshing
by 순_순 on 2018/07/12 18:27
cake as a web browser is super efficient at getting you the information you need as fast as possible. for example, in class, we were assigned certain parts of a book to read. as soon as I entered the pdf version of said book, it came exactly onto the screen as needed without having to hassle through various sites like scribd to find an authentic pdf version. I was extremely pleased with the layout and how easy it was to use the app. if you're a little technologically challenged, just go to the settings and it will teach you how to manoeuvre you're way through the app. I thoroughly enjoy this web browser and believe it has a lot of potentials. I haven't come across most issues posted in the reviews so I can't offer much criticism since its such an easy to use browser. aesthetically, its passing. I think the app is organised and well structured to give it a pleasing look. and aside from everything, I am giving a 5-star rating because the developmental team have been so patient with the populace and hard working on furthering the success of their work. good job guys! you're awesome!
Refreshing Intuitive Browser with Some Gripes
by Saturn's Escape on 2019/01/04 05:40
I’ve been using the Cake browser for a few months now and I have to say, it’s an absolute joy to use when it works the way it was intended and that happens a good majority of the time. This core concept of swiping between search results and dedicated search buttons for types of searches cut out some annoying steps in the browsing process and feel totally next level. For all the focus on UI efficiency, there remain two major frustrations that still bug me with Cake, when typing a url, it doesn’t autocomplete based on your search history, and there is no pull down to refresh a page and the button is all the way at the top of your screen. These two things are a weirdly big deal to me. I’ve also seen some frustrating behavior where some sites just won’t load properly due to what I can only guess is the ad blocking tech. So I haven’t yet been able to switch completely to Cake, I have to keep a backup browser handy just in case. I find the frustrations and quirks are worth putting up with considering what a refreshing concept it is and I like the idea of a small startup sticking it to the data hungry, big Corp browsers that dominate the scene today. For now, I’m a Cake believer and hope they continue to refine this very novel browsing experience.
Might not seem like it, but GREAT
by cacogamer11 on 2019/05/22 04:17
When I first saw an ad for this app I ignored it thinking it was probably another one of those rip off search engines that don’t even compare to google (My search engine at the time). A few months later, a new ad popped up and I was pretty bored so I clicked on it. I looked at the very positive reviews and decided to give it a try. I’ve been using it for the past 2 days and it’s AMAZING. Let me tell you, it’s so innovative and awesome for your phone. You can choose whichever search engine you want (Ranging from Google to DuckDuckGo) and can even subscribe to different news media for free. They will pop up on your feed and you can clim on it any time! The web surfing part of the app is very intuitive and might I say fun. It incorporates elements that social media has like swiping to see the next page. It runs very smoothly and it’s just a great app overall. ( I have not encountered any bugs yet and will update if I do) I totally recommend this app, even though it might seem a little bit weird at first, just try it; You never know until you try!
It’s The Best, But...
by Hivemind Thana on 2018/09/12 01:17
... it’s missing a few organizational features for long term usage, like bookmarks and favorites. That said, this app does exactly what it is supposed to do, that being browse to find specific or relevant information, images, and videos. It’s much faster and more intuitive for mobile devices than any other browser App, and I would love to see it grow to rival other browsers in its own niche. That said, I think people like me probably won’t be putting it on our home docks until it’s updated to save links without me having to open up the notepad app (or some other browser). My other complaint is that searching by image is not well supported in this browser. Tapping and holding on an image had ought to make an image search an option, or at least open the image in another tab. As it stands, the app is beautifully well suited to news, porn, and meme searches, but when it comes to saving and organizing what you find, the app is currently sadly lacking. So close to perfect!
New feature request
by Toy Dogwatch on 2019/02/07 09:17
First off I really love this app I came to trust this app a lot but one thing that worries me is being tracked while I’m using WiFi I red the full description on the app and I didn’t see anything that talked about leaving no trace behind on WiFi I’m always worried using any browser even safari that I will be tracked being on WiFi so I was wondering if at all possible you developers could work on a feature that a customers WiFi provider or account manager of that router won’t be able to even see what you are looking at in private mode it’s something I have been looking all over in some browsers on the App Store but I can’t seem to find that on the App Store if at all possible could you developers possibly take into consideration if you developers could come up with something like that I would be glued to this app for life but I have to admit I do love the lay out of the app it’s the best I have seen so far in any of the Apps I have downloaded that’s why I gave it 5 happy stars
Like it
by Pyro2020 on 2018/02/17 20:13
I really enjoy the user interface. It is my favorite browser for my iPhone. I just was wondering if there will be updates to this app? I would like to be able to make folders and name them. That way I can manage my bookmarks easier. I would just like a little more content, that the other web browsers have. Any tease or anything you can spoil. That you plan on adding in a update? Maybe themes would be cool to. I await to see more features. Thank you for your time. I also thank you in advance. If you can reply, and maybe address/ spoil. What may come in updates. Edit: Also would like to be able to open things up in new tab/window. I know I can open up a new page, if I click on the button in the corner. I just like to sometimes open things in new tabs then check all the things I’m interested in. Thank you again, I’m confident that you will address these things I mentioned. I would like to make this my default browser.

Empty Before I Met You
by TheDaniel1997 on 2018/09/12 03:20
I think this application is amazing. It’s very customizable and after a few minutes of familiarizing myself, very easy to grasp and use. They’ve created this new way of browsing which works fast, blocks vexing pop ups/ads, and is so clean and clear looking. It doesn’t feel like a jumble and I don’t think I’ll be making a habit of opening hundreds of tabs at once. That’s an issue I had with Safari and Chrome. You can even customize the App Icon which is like, what!? If I had one “room for improvement” advice, it’d be regarding the “Request a Desktop Site” button. I think that should be one of the first things you see when clicking the “...” button at the bottom, but instead you have to sorta dig for it. Most websites aren’t made for mobile view, and I constantly got to click desktop view for best quality. I’d like it to be in a more convenient spot is all.
Favorite browser! But...
by aog23467 on 2019/06/04 05:06
First of all I have to say how impressed I am with this unique browser. The ability to swipe through pages really streamlines the searching experience. I love the recent updates to the home page as well. However, there is one unfortunate problem I’ve been running into. I’ve been using Cake for quite some time now, however when I switched to the iPhone XR, a very intrusive bug caused the app to be tedious to use. Whenever I reach the bottom of a page, the app closes. At first, my assumption was that this was related to the XR’s home button mechanics, but realized that the app crashes regardless of where you are touching the screen to scroll. So I’m not accidentally exiting the app :) , it is actually crashing. Although it hasn’t stopped me from using Cake rather than Safari, it is very annoying. I would just delete it, but I truly do prefer this browser and am a huge fan of its features. Hopefully this bug is squashed soon!
Awesome, awesome browser
by Czkskxn on 2018/10/18 14:08
I downloaded cake a while back because I wanted to try a new browser besides safari/chrome. I’ve gotta say I’m pretty happy I did, it wasn’t long before it had a spot in my iPhone’s dock. Not only does the browser work really well for a phone - I usually can get to the info I’m looking for more quickly and easily - but the dev’s and designers behind the app do a tremendous job off pushing out updates that increase the speed of the app and really improve the experience of it. I find it funny that I’ll go to update my apps and most say *bug fixes* but cake just drops some new lists of features I didn’t know I wanted (thanks for the rss guys, it’s great!). Honestly the cake team is probably the only team that really cares about making and constantly improving mobile browsing to make it easier and more fun. You should for sure give it a shot.
GREAT, BUT THE LOADING SPEED...
by Allen Grayson on 2018/09/24 15:23
I must admit, Cake it great! It is easy, convenient, and simple to use. I love the swipe feature, and it’s great not having to scroll through and click on every single link to find a result. I love the settings icon where you can view your saved passwords and filter out different website categories. However, I do have a few complaints about the loading speed. I have great internet, and my data is turned on all the time for Cake, and I have unlimited. But, still the loading speed when I swipe still takes some time. I find myself having to refresh every other time I swipe. I am not sure if this is just me, but if others are experiencing this, it would be great if this could be fixed. Overall Cake is a great app and I would recommend it to anyone. Thank you!
Incredible app but needs bookmark folders
by Thefamntn on 2018/07/26 04:04
This is without a doubt the best browser ever created except for the lack of folders for bookmarks. Hence the 4 stars instead of 5. I don’t understand anyone saying it is slow. Not on my phone. I timed the time that it takes in Safari and Chrome to go back to the search results, click the next option, and wait for the page to load. With Cake, one swipe and it is there. But without bookmark folders, it is basically unusable for me personally at this point in its development. I am a school teacher, and I have to be able to organize results of searches between various folders. Having one long list of bookmarks for a guy that generally has hundreds is just not a viable option. I will have to contribute using Safari and Chrome for now but will be anxiously waiting to see if that is added. Great job team. Very well done so far.
Great app but not perfect... yet
by PizaBoy02 on 2019/06/23 02:12
This app is great. It really is optimized for phones and makes it way easier to search what your looking for. What makes it not perfect is it feels very slow at times, ESPECIALLY SWITCHING TABS!! Sometimes it feels like an eternity clicking that tab button and waiting for my others tabs to show. Also, I thinking it would be really great to add that Ecosia web browser, you know to plant those trees! I also really love the feature of private tabs disappearing after 3 minutes of a closed app. It’s really been a life saver if you know what I mean. The app really does feel phone exclusive, but not enough. I really don’t know how it could be done but I know y’all developers can figure something out. I really like the app but I can see other people not liking it, so I suggest a feature that would really sell it to others! All in all, great app!
Dark Mode?
by Enthira on 2019/06/12 07:01
First off, I love this browser! It’s super fast and easy to use and it’s quite innovative. The one thing I would appreciate is having a dark mode for non private browsing. Sometimes, when I’m researching something or looking at recipes I like to have the option to look at my browsing history, but I also like the dark background that private mode provides. Having the option to have a darker coloring without having to use the private mode would be greatly appreciated. (Maybe the option to choose a background color would be nice!) Obviously apple will be releasing a dark mode for IOS, so I’m hoping it will be implemented then. Overall, the browser works well and I haven’t had any problems with it over the many months I’ve been using it.
Apple is quacking!
by bananatree3 on 2019/01/27 03:50
It’s really good it’s way better then safari (apple) at first it was hard to get used to it now it’s been a couple weeks and I’m used to it. I don’t like how it goes to a site when you search things but that’s just my personal opinion. It’s cool how you can follow websites and stuff. Also I like how you can change the app icon on your screen I just think there should be beige pink baby indio colors sorta speak. It’s pretty fast. The wages are easier to deal with also it shows the saved passwords for the websites. I like how you can change the back like how on computers. I wish there were pretty minimalistic ones or like you can chose a photo from your phone. I like it wayyyyy better then safari, internet all those. I highly recommend enjoy and suggest. 😘
Great new browser, needs some work
by wang yiren won produce 48 on 2018/08/02 07:16
I’ve had Cake for a couple of days now and used it pretty thoroughly throughout those days, really coming to enjoy all that it has to offer. Being able to search something and not have to click a bunch of different links and URLs is so much easier than I expected with Cake’s swipe feature. I didn’t think I would like that as much as I do and I probably won’t use another browser again because of how fast and efficient it is. My biggest issue with the browser is that there is no way to copy and paste anything in the browser, such as excerpts from an article or links to different website, I can’t seem to figure out how to copy and paste. Would love to see this added in the near future hopefully, but overall the app is very visually appealing and easy and fun to use.
REVOLUTIONARY
by Shimmuel on 2018/08/01 09:34
This browser is incredible! It’s exactly what mobile users have needed for a long time now, but we didn’t even realize what we were missing. I don’t think I’ll ever switch back to a default browsing app again. Cake is sleek, smooth, and extraordinarily fast. The integrated ad-blocking feature is a huge plus, and I really enjoy being able to change the app icon on a whim. My only suggestion to make this app absolutely perfect would be to add a night mode/dark color scheme option, or give the option to edit the color to your liking. Otherwise, I have no other critique! I’d also like to thank you for the bold decision to add a Pride color option for the app icon! Showing your support even in little ways is always highly appreciated. =)
(ALMOST) Everything I could ask for in a mobile browser
by pissgoblin on 2019/03/17 05:42
At first when I saw an ad for Cake, I was pretty skeptical, just because I was so used to the Google app. Seriously, even after a couple minutes of use and a glance at all of the customizable settings, I could tell this was better. As I said, more customization, more options for pretty much everything, incognito mode, a better tab system, even a customizable home screen icon. I would definitely recommend. THE ONLY problem I’ve found so far is that the app hasn’t properly been ported to the iPad, even though it’s not listed as an iPhone only app. I’d love to be able to use Cake on both my iPad, but it acts like the iPad version of Instagram, where it doesn’t fully fit the screen. Cake would be pretty much perfect if I could use it on both devices.
Long time user
by mercpls on 2019/01/18 16:21
After many communication efforts with the support team and many failed attempts at anything getting better I finally deleted the app today. I have been using the app since this last summer and enjoyed it until the updates started happening. Moving the interface and hiding the options behind obscure icons. Icons are statistically proven to be harder to understand but design or function I guess. They started adding super annoying notification, I updated to an iPhone XR this week and every time I open my multitask I see “good morning from cake!” Pasted at the bottom of my screen. How about you actually screw off? You’re supposed to be about stopping advertisements and being unobtrusive but have failed horribly. Money talks and all their “changes” are just spewing advertisements and new sites nobody cares about on the home screen. Why the hell are favorites hidden between 3 taps when it used to be one? Why can’t I disable the garbage app notification that always displays a “3” over my app icon? Why do I have to clear browser data to remove notifications temporarily and still see them in my multi tasked. The only good function is the ad blocker. If you attempt to scroll left or right after zooming in you CANT until you scroll down first. A bug I reported 3 months ago still existing and making me switch back to safari. Enjoy your 1 star, maybe listen to users in the future.
I’d like to be able to see more than just 5 images
by maksimniko on 2018/10/20 22:52
Overall, this is a great browser. The interface is simple, smooth and attractive, and it’s fast and very easy to use. I do have some complaints. First, when I’m using google images, the browser only loads the first few images and the rest are just colored squares. They never load when I touch them and if I click on the link, sometimes it opens the page and other times it doesn’t. This wasn’t an issue until a week or two ago. Another issue is that occasionally all links will stop working on a page. The only solution is to refresh, and after that it works fine. This can happen on any website. Past these issues, I really enjoy the app! If it could be fixed, I can definitely update to the 5 stars it deserves ^^
An Easy To Use Web Browser
by YaBoiRuben on 2018/10/21 01:10
This is a really good app for web browsing. Starting off, it’s a little laggy and scrolling can sometimes lag behind. This is just one problem I have found, and I’m sure through updates and through feedback Cake will become even better and issues now will be fixed soon. The ad blocker is amazing, I love that I can visit websites without getting useless ads all the time blocking my view of the page. The instant re-load when returning to “All results” from a website is instant and allows for quicker browsing and less frustration when trying to look for another website. Overall, this is a very easy and useful web browser that everyone should use when browsing on their phones.
Love it! Needs a few improvement but will keep using :)
by Mike E in NYC on 2018/10/06 15:47
Hey Cake Dev Team, This app is amazing, you guys really nailed the responsiveness and navigation between searches. As a dev myself, I know how much time and effort was put into such a smooth experience. A couple improvements would go a loooong way: 1. Tabbed browsing needs to be more responsive. When I click the tabs icon, it’s frustrating that I’m forced to scroll through tabs that take up the full vw of the viewport(sorry web dev here :). If I have four tabs that means scrolling. Coming from dolphin browser, this feels clunky. 2. Bookmark access! You guys know already. How do I access my favorites even? No idea currently and there’s no docs on this. 3. Back to index on search is hidden in a drop down. Would love a quick access button. Perhaps it can be a user setting instead of default. This is just a nice to have:) 4. Bonus, I saw someone complaining about copy/paste above. Since you guys are innovating, how about coming up with a gesture to copy something quickly without holding and waiting for the menu? This is probably a native issue rather than a browser thing but throwing it out there. Again you guys have done an amazing job. Can’t wait for the next updates. Cheers, Mike NYC
Awesome So Far, But A Thought...
by Dusty Start on 2018/08/30 14:05
I am really liking the browser so far. I really enjoy that it blocks ads. Really good job on this one. I do have a few thoughts or ideas that could make it a little better in my eyes. When you clear all of the pages and come to the bright blue main section. Could you maybe make this part a little less bright? Or you could make it another customizable area, where we can change the colors. Maybe even a something with a simple watermark/design? (Cake?) This part is more of my own request. The first was the main idea that I thought could help. Could you add more colors for the icon customization? Maybe more pastels, pink and blue? Anyway those are my thoughts. I do enjoy it a lot. Thanks for the great app!
A Wonderful App
by Wildman6734098 on 2018/08/20 03:02
I honestly didn’t know what I expected when I got this app after seeing the ad for it, but I can say that it is definitely worth getting. It’s much easier than using Safari or any other form of internet on my mobile phone and it’s significantly faster at finding the type of results you are looking for such as images or videos. For example if you look something up in the tab, you can choose to find results as pictures, videos, news articles, etc. and all using different sources for the type of results you want. In conclusion, Cake is definitely an app worth downloading, it is much simpler and more efficient to use, and is great for replacing your old internet app.
Better than everything out there! Simply amazing!
by Chupameelrabolargo on 2018/08/03 04:22
I have been a huge fan since I downloaded the app! It was everything I was looking for in a search engine, later on as I decided to read about other’s experiences with the app and they started pointing out things that you might just dismiss or simply ignore because the Pros bet the Cons you start to realize the little tweaks that would help out the app. I agree with several users about the bookmarks and besides that i would also like to know if there is a possibility that the developers are working on a adding an X or a delete option to simply wipe everything that was in your search bar with just one click to start a new search.
Additional Icing Needed On Cake
by Dawson LR on 2019/02/10 20:30
This web browsing app is a wonderful tool if you want your search to be expanded with now ease. Although I praise this great app for all the work the developers have put into it, a bit more features and optimization would be great. 1) DARK MODE- it’s a given. If you want to attract more costumers it is mandatory to have this feature available for us “OLED” device users. Most app developers get the wrong idea about this. For example, Twitter. Yes there is a dark mode, but an ugly one at that. Please make your dark mode TRUE black or OLED users. 2) FLUIDITY- no doubt about it, when I use this app on high speed Wi-Fi the sliding between webpages is almost water-like. A few optimizations could add more fluidity when using MOBILE data. 3) A BETTER MATERIAL DESIGN- I love the design of this app, rounded corners, minimal, and visually pleasing. But a dark mode and more rounded corners throughout would be great. More setting options would be great along with darker home screen backgrounds 😄 Again this app is wonderful, thank you Cake developers! Nothing wrong with this app at all but few things needed to be perfect ❤️😀

So far, I've hopped between Google and safari. Not to say either are bad, but I've always stuck with safari because of its Read mode, but had Google because of its ease of use. When I discovered cake, this changed. It's a beautifully designed app, with total customizability, all for free. It comes with great things like the ability to change your icon, your background, and your default sites. The swipe browsing system is what really made my day, I don't need to think about which link I need, I can just swipe till I find it. It also has a (free) ad-blocker, making it by far my favorite browser. Definitely a worthy addition.
Love the app but..!

I have been using the app, actually stopping myself from using traditional chrome. I have come tor really like it. It seems to really suit the ease of access that many Smart Phones are designed for. I’ve also like the increased amount of information i am exposed to. Once you are used to ignoring the common search results you really can go site by site effortlessly. I must also say I love the tools and capabilities of the browser that easily compares to any making it really easy to store and file information just so happen you are wanting to return to a notable source of you daily searching. One thing I find very frustrating is some pages really are determine to not allow me to zoom out to frame all the text. I would feel like if the software could text wrap the page, or allow a broader spectrum to zoom, it would kill the inconvenience of only seeing four-five lines and having to scroll along with the sentences. If could accommodate this to me this app would earn the five stars. Honestly besides that one suggestion, I highly would suggest giving it a try whether you are using it for procrastinating or expanding your mind.
Definitely replacing safari.

This app. Is probably one of thee best general browsers ive ever seen. And im an app programmer. Im not a paid actor, so when i see something thats actually *good*, i tell people about it. Its user friendly, the app explains everything you need to know, and the app title made me laugh at first when i found out about it whilst watching one of my favorite you tubers. I thought: oh no.. Another awful general browsing app trying to claim its good.. Might as well see if they live up to their claims.. But i was genuinely surprised. This is so smooth, seamless, and really satisfying. If your wondering if there is such a "general browsing app" that can smoke out the rest, well look no further.. Cake, has got you covered.
Amazing! Just have one request
by Scarletspider97 on 2018/07/03 10:14
I love this browser! It's everything that it should be for mobile users and more. Extremely fast, intuitive, and super easy to use. I absolutely love the slices, it makes it super easy to navigate across the web. The one thing I wish would get changed is the bookmarks. I'm someone who loves having my bookmarks organized and this is the one downfall of the browser. With no option to change the name of your bookmark and no option to place individual bookmarks in folders, finding that one bookmark in the midst of a hundred is a bit of a hassle. Other than that, I love this browser and hope it continues to improve as time goes on.
I like the concept but the execution is lacking
by SchoolmarmMel on 2018/10/30 12:59
I set my search engine to Google and searched on snowshoe cats. On the index page, it’s showing information from the Wikipedia article 1st, then some videos, and then several websites, the first one being cattime and the second one being hills pet nutrition. However, when I swipe to the right, the first 3 results are completely different sites, one of which is only tangentially related to snowshoe cats (it’s something about all breeds). the cattimes site is number 4 and hills is 5. Wikipedia doesn’t come up until number 6. It’s also very annoying to have a nearly full-screen request to share cake come up after only using it for maybe 30 seconds, especially since this request has no visible Close button. You can close it by tapping outside of the screen, but I’m on a small iPhone so it’s there’s not a lot of space to do that. Yesterday when I was running a different search I also ran into that thing that somebody else was reporting about the result not being full screen. I’m not sure why that sometimes happens but it’s confusing. Finally, depending on this site it seems like it’s harder to swipe to the next site than it should be - it seems to kind of get stuck in the middle.
Great interface and app
by RonPhillips on 2018/10/15 20:31
I really enjoy the idea behind this app and have been finally weening off of safari while using it more often. I wrote this review mainly because I wanted to severly recommend a simple feature that would make me use it even more than safari and that is a better tab view design. My friends and I who use this app all only complain about how the tab view only shows one tab at a time and can be significantly streamlined by showing multiple open tabs by title at least so we can choose something to go back to and not slide through each choice one by one. Again, great app, and I hope to see it consistently improved!
Really nice, clean browser
by \m/ d(-_-)b \m/ on 2019/07/13 01:02
Cake is a really convenient browser that allows you to really customize your experience right from the get-go. You can choose your own search engine to leave on your homepage for simple searching. Cake allows you to rotate through search results very seamlessly, or see all of your search results together in one screen. Allows you to also pick your favorite news and media outlets and gives you seamless updates when your favorites add a new story. Only complaint is the latency when you first open the app. Very slow off the jump. Overall very solid browser (4.6/5)
Not very good
by klnnvyin c on 2019/06/26 14:38
I don’t like the fact that you are forced to follow terrible websites or media outlets in the beginning. There’s not many choices and I certainly don’t want to follow fox or CNN or the wsj or the bezos post. (Washington post). The “ad block” feature doesn’t work at all I get ads constantly, normal ads, pop up ads, ads that take me to a new page. Finally the collections option to store certain webpages in doesn’t work at all for videos I’ll be watching a video and halfway through it will stop playing and become a blank page then I have to find it again and you can’t just click on which webpage you want to go to in that collection you have to swipe all the way to that webpage starting from the first page you added to the collection. This is a good idea but it’s executed terribly.
Mediocre at best
by evalsreggin9696 on 2019/06/10 03:52
This browser has made statements saying that this is the better option than Google Chrome Or Safari . I tried it for a week, worst week ever. When I opened this, I thought “maybe it’ll be smoother than safari or chrome.” It takes too long to load up searches, and when it does it takes you to the first page on the search page instead of the search page. I didn’t expect this happen and it made browsing a lot more frustrating and time consuming. The week I had this it made every day searches take a lot more time then they should’ve taken when using Safari or Chrome. The speed of the app can’t keep up with the layout it was given. Overall, I wouldn’t switch over to this if given a choice. Safari and Chrome are better options
Fan but not a fan
by Atiquecg on 2018/10/03 22:43
Started out as a big fan, used it and I was like wow best ever browser. It’s good, it’s fast and also feels like it’s intuitive it knows what you are looking for. But in today’s fast paced world if there’s even a delay of second you don’t like it. App takes apparently longer than chrome or safari to start. Biggest drawback as I’ve to wait for good 4-7 seconds to search whatever I want to which is a turn off(I’m using iPhone 5s). Also I’ve noticed my iPhone getting heated up like crazy after using the app for long. Like reading a blog or something is a no no. With that said, my hope is for an update to fix these issues. As I really love the app also hate the delays at the same time. It’s a love hate affair:) I love it more than safari or chrome.
Great Concept But Has Issues
by Barrett138 on 2018/08/08 19:21
The app is really cool and I love the idea of it, but it has some two main problems that are stopping me from using it full time. The first is it used a lot of power. My phone gets incredibly hot when I use it for just a few minutes and if this doesn't get fixed I'll never touch the app. The second is that there's no filter for scam websites with nasty pop ups. I had one show up telling me to call a number and I couldn't do anything else because the touch screen was locked. I couldn't even turn my phone off since you need to slide a bar on the touch screen. In a normal web browser I probably wouldn't have clicked on that link, but Cake's feature is it loads all the search results so it needs to not let scary sites in.
Fresh new concept
by Booo4321👎🏽 on 2019/01/26 04:54
Cake, the browser itself is a great idea but there is still so much room for improvement when I first used it it felt a bit cluttered and I would have to force myself to use it again cause it isn’t as clean as a browser should be I have some suggestions 1. Home page should just be a home page with a couple of accessibility shortcuts its a browser not a social media app 2.to the left of the home screen should be your recommended media and websites your subscribed to I say this because I feel as though everything is shoved down your throat when you first open it 3.More customization settings I tinkered around with the icon and I would love for there to be an option to customize the color of the browser
A Revolutionary Fast & Easy Web Browser
by Chris48362 on 2018/08/06 02:38
Cake Browser is an incredible easy way to browse the internet with so much to explore. It is incredibly easy to browse the internet on a mobile device better than any other browser. All you have to do is search & swipe. Also, searching is made super easy by grouping searches. Cake Browser allows you to group your searches in categories such as news or gaming. You can also specify what type of search you would like to see such as you would like to find a photo or a video. Cake Browser is an incredible browser that is easy to use with so much to explore.
One bug ruined my rating for this app
by LeavingAReview4You on 2018/09/15 21:53
I love every aspect of this browser, it replaces safari in every way. It is easy to use and easy to access. But while trying to use the app, a strange bug happened. Whenever I search up an item I want to see an image of, only about 5 of the images pop up and the rest don’t load. Neither can I click on the images that work to look at where the image comes from or where to download the image. This is really frustrating and takes a big aspect of use for internet browsers away. I would keep the app, but only when this is fixed. Other than that, the app is amazing to use and is great for anyone that does not really understand the internet because of how easy it is to use.
Well Organized, Well Done
by coffee_medic on 2018/08/03 13:07
In all honesty I was a little pensive about the app at first, but after going through the tutorial and messing around a bit, I’ve discovered that it’s perfect as a mobile browser. It’s features are made specifically for the abilities of a mobile phone, stop pop ups, and are simple and easy to use. I’d never thought of needing a browser specifically for a phone, but I’m really glad for the off chance of seeing an add for this. It’s made my life and work a whole lot easier. I hope that Cake does very well in the future, as I can see it has already made one aspect of mine a whole lot simpler.
EZ to use, fast & you can change app icon!
by Nexus479 on 2019/06/17 07:27
I normally don’t review apps, but after using Cake for about a day, I can honestly say I’m really impressed. Swiping to view different websites over your 1 search topic is way easy & it was really surprising to see my habit over clicking back and scrolling to see my search results like I do with Chrome—but I didn’t have to! My search result was RIGHT THERE. Very useful quickly looking up something if you’re time-limited or have a tight schedule. I LOVE the idea of switching the app icon. I’ve never had an app that has let you pick what it looks like on your home screen.
So promising! But still needs to improve
by navySILVER.88 on 2018/02/12 02:51
The concept behind this browser is really thrilling and I love how the team thought of easing the navigating process. However, after placing this browser where Safari used to be and forcing myself to move all my browsing tasks to Cake, I realized that at its core, this browser is still not fast enough. Internet speed aside, this browser seems to run a little clunkier compared to Safari and even the Chrome app, and in situations when I need to type in a full web address it often directs to a search result before I can manage to fit the name in full. I can see myself loving this browser, but it’s just the little obnoxious things that really need to get fixed sooner than later...
Idea
by EMILRJB on 2018/08/08 07:40
I got the app and I like it a lot. I got confused when it was asking to dock the app because I thought it meant that I could drag a website down to dock it and I thought it would be a great idea. I like to open many pages at the same time and sometimes it gets very messy and I thought it would be a cool idea to be able to dock a page. If you have a certain page that you want to save for later you’re able to actually drag it down, in the app, and dock it for later instead of having to swipe through bunch of pages to get to that one page. Idk I just think it would be a very cool idea.
April 2019 UPDATE
by LiddleKiddle on 2019/04/24 01:33
I'm just saying NO to the latest update and ANYTHING like it......can you say tracking? Took off a star. This is not my fastest or most private browser. Don't really like the tabbed search as it is not a great idea on a small phone. UPDATE: I updated to 5 stars after using this browser for a few months. I like the convenience of the “slice” feature and Trending. The settings are clear and easy to adjust. This is one of 3 browsers I prefer on my older iPhone SE, and it appears to be fast and stable. Good job! My only “want” was be able to add 1-2 feeds to the slices of my own... and I see that is a new feature of the very latest version, which I have not yet downloaded. ************* I have only had this for a day, but I am really liking it. I usually use UC Browser on my tiny iPhone SE. This seems just as fast and I like the ease of seeing and clicking on multiple search and news sources. The interface is clean and uncluttered. It’s also easy to add a bookmark and find the bookmark list. I’m reserving the last star till I use this a bit more.
This great
by CB6245 on 2019/06/08 12:04
Okay, so almost every day I’ve been getting this ad for cake. It kinda annoyed me, so I decided to watch through it. To be honest, it seemed kinda stupid. I finally checked out cake, and I really like it. Basically the only problem that I have is that when I search something , I’ll say iPhone XR for example. Rather than going directly to some info on the google search results, it would take me right to the apple website, and I have to swipe a few times to get to search results. Other than that the app is amazing, though I just only got it last night. Especially the ad blocker
It’s amazing but I have a few things that frustrate me
by beardood on 2018/07/27 18:39
I believe the concept of this app is amazing and I’m all for it. However, there are something that I can not do on this app that I wish I could. First of all, you can’t seem to get switched to a different app when you press a button. For example, when you’re looking for directions Cake does not direct you to your maps app when you ask. Also, when your looking through a photo gallery or need to swipe to use some part of the page, you are unable. This is because when you swipe you are sent to the next page. It’s just a little frustrating and wish this would be implemented.
Easy 5 Stars
by Mudkip Bro on 2019/06/29 05:47
Simply just one of the best search engines! As blocking and easy way to discover what your looking for! But one thing that doesn’t make me completely switch is that I can’t find news about what I’m interested in like google. I wish I can just follow topics and then have them show up in the home screen! Also another future I’d like to see is a “dark mode” in which the background is darker, or better yet, the background color could be adjustable. It kinda hurts to see the white background all day and would be a nice change to see a different color! Nonetheless it’s a very great app!
