UCWeb, a global leading provider of mobile internet software and services, released UC Browser 3.2 for Windows Phone with key enhancements, including long-awaited Background Download, enhanced Download Management, UDisk branded cloud storage service, optimized Preloading, improved UI, and more. UC Browser is loaded with unique features, which have made it the most popular alternative to the default IE browser and the No.1 browser on the Windows Phone Store. The latest version is now available on the WP Store (for both WP8 and 7.x).
1. Background Download
Good news for those who are addicted to downloading, you may keep downloading files even after you exit UC Browser. Yes, you read that right. The download process will continue even after you completely close UC Browser. What’s more, the download process will automatically resume if the download is interrupted for some reasons, again, all in the background. Many features of UC Browser are developed based on user’s needs, and the Background Download has been the latest one. Now, with the latest UC Browser, you can lean back and let UC Browser do all the work for you behind the scenes. (Note: According to Microsoft’s restrictions, Background Download may not function properly under a 2G network.)

2. Enhanced Download Management
The new download management system allows you to categorize downloaded files and get quick access to them. It comes in handy if you have downloaded lots of files, and want a quick way to find what you want.
Download management helps you get quick access to downloaded video.
Have limited storage space for downloaded files on your phone, or feel insecure keeping files stored there? Don’t worry, UC Browser 3.2 comes with UDisk, a cloud storage service that allows you to store files on the cloud. After signing up for a UC account, you will get 6GB of space to store downloads on UDisk directly: with 2GB permanent and 4GB temporary storage.
4. Optimized Preloading
The feature of Preloading gives you a smoother reading of paged websites. It creates a seamless reading experience with the next page being automatically loaded when you reach the end of your current page. With this 3.2 version it now works on even more sites.
UC Browser is the No.1 browser on WP Store
It’s easy to see why WP users prefer using UC Browser. Compared with default IE, UC Browser has significantly more features and allows a smoother user experience. Thanks to cloud acceleration and data compression technology, it reduces data consumption and loads web content much faster. It supports more Gestures than IE does, for instance, swipe right to go back a page or left to go forward instantly without refreshing the web content – these simple gestures not only save your time and data, but also deliver a great interactive experience.
You can personalize the Speed Dial, pick a font to display webpages under Speed Mode, as well as change the background and skin by selecting pictures from the UC Theme Center or from your own albums.
It also offers flexible browsing modes to cater for individual preferences and different environments. Under Night Mode, the screen is dimmed and the contrast in visual style is reduced to save users’ eyes from harm by the glaring screen in low light settings; Speed Mode lets you surf at superfast speeds, and Incognito Browsing allows you browse in stealth without your browsing history being recorded. Moreover, by entering Visit as PC mode, you can experience the full features of webpages as if on a PC. On the contrary, Text-only Browsing strips away images, and will display only the text of webpages.
