Sometimes, you need to go places where you don’t have data available on your iPhone. Whether its due to a bad cell signal or lack of a Wi-Fi connection in the area, facing a situation where there is no data is often unavoidable. For me, the worst part of this is being bored. I feel like there is nothing to do on my phone without data. Sure, I can play a game, but sometimes, that just does not cut it. Usually, I prefer to read something interesting on the Internet to kill time.
With Offline Pages Pro, you can save any website to your phone for viewing offline. What makes this cool app different from most apps of its kind is that it actually saves the entire webpage to your phone and not just the text. It saves the formatting, and you would never be able to tell that you are looking at the page offline.
This app is normally $9.99, but you can pick it up for the remainder of this week free. If you want to get the pro version without spending a penny, now is the time.
This app will help you pick lots of your favorite articles and webpages and save them to your phone for whenever you want to look at them. To save a webpage, simply click the button next to the address bar. This will save the page so you can look at it whenever you want. It’s incredibly easy, and it can be quite useful for when you know you need to go somewhere without data.
With the pro version (which is free for a couple more days), you can tag pages, which will make it easier for you to find the page you want. You can create your own tags, so you can easily form your own organization system.
To get access to your saved pages, simply the click the button in the bottom-middle of the screen. You will see a list of all your saved pages. If you want to delete a page, you can swipe across it to have the delete button come up, or you can click the “Edit” button and mark different pages for deletion.
The app also works with a bookmarklet, so you can save pages from your computer and other browsers. You can also add pages to the app using email. From the app, you set up a secret email and send pages that you want saved offline for later viewing.
The pro version also includes an auto update feature that allows you to save entire webpages and have them automatically updated at certain times. This allows you to keep your sites current, so the next time you go offline, you will have the latest version of the app installed.
Pages download quickly, so you will not have to spend a lot of time adding pages. With the Pro version of the app, you can even save HTML5 videos to your phone for watching offline. This, along with all the other features, make this a great app for dealing with the boredom of not having data available on your phone.
This is an incredibly useful app for anyone who needs to be without cell phone signal for extended periods. Saving your favorite places on the web for viewing later is awesome, and it can save you a lot of boredom. Best of all, you can grab the $10 app for free until the end of this week.
