Browse Later

By Andrew Gates

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.

Description

Browse Later does exactly what the name implies - it allows you to browse your favorite websites later on, regardless of whether or not you have an internet connection. Download the web sites now, view them later. Browse Later is ideal for iPod Touch users, iPhone users with little/no data connectivity, or iPhone users who just don't want to worry about EDGE/3G availability.


How Browse Later Works

Browse Later uses your iPhone/iPod's Wifi/EDGE/3G connection to cache anything from single web pages to near-complete web sites. Set it to download a single page or an entire series of pages linked together. Catch the news. Read your favorite blog. Turn javascript on and download a javascript game (Note - compatibility varies widely for javascript games). Cache a movie embedded in a page and view it later. The options are endless.


Usage Examples

Wake up, have Browse Later start downloading your pages, grab you iPod/iPhone on your way out the door. Check all your favorite sites just as if you were connected to the internet, wherever you are,even if you're disconnected and offline. Catch all the headlines, read all the articles they link to. See what's new on digg, CNN, your favorite blog. Whatever you choose!


UPDATED
===================

- Now allows download over 3G/EDGE!
- Added option to turn images on/off in caching (turning them off saves lots of download time)
- Fixed swipe delete not working
- Fixed odd behavior/certain performance issues with File Manager
- Updated icon (it's prettier! thanks to Brett for input, advice)



Notes/Disclaimers

- Not all sites will work perfectly with Browse Later - some may display a little oddly, others may just return a blank page. For maximum compatibility it's recommended you maintain the default settings for a site - keep javascript turned off so it can't redirect you to a nonexistent page (for example), keep embedded objects turned off to limit how much is downloaded. To file a bug report or comment on a page's compatibility go to http://apps.callerdb.com/compatibility

- Memory usage while viewing downloaded pages - after heavy usage of viewing pages downloaded in Browse Later, the application may crash due to running out of memory. This is linked to a memory issue out of my control relating to how web pages are viewed on the iPhone/iPod, and similar things happen while you use Safari. Until a known fix/workaround is available this will happen on occasion.

- I have no affiliation with any web site downloaded using Browse Later or mentioned in this description. I make no claims to their content, and am completely separate of them. Any companies, company names, etc. mentioned in this description are trademarks of their respectable owners.

Customer Reviews

Good but lacking some key features

I used Browse Later Lite and liked it well enough to pay for the upgrade. This version seems to work significantly faster. A site with 500 pages took over an hour before and took about 20 minutes with this version. There are also some great additional options.

BUT the application still lacks some key things that any offline browser needs. The most frustrating is that it needs to set up the links or the cache such that if one page in the cache links to another page in the cache, then the link should take you to that cached page. Instead it just gives you an error. This seems like an easy fix and would really increase the utility of downloading an entire website.

Second, there should be an option to block offsite content. Again, this should be an easy fix.

The other critical weakness to me isn't a problem with the program, but just the fact that it uses the built-in Safari to browse the cached pages and I hate having to zoom in on pages and then pan left and right to read text. Maybe there could be an option to use a different browser?

Other than that, I love being able to carry an entire website around without having to be connected to wi-fi. I downloaded a small Wiki of maybe 100 pages in about 10 minutes (but the links don't work). I've downloaded a whole blog by pointing Browse Later to the archive. So this is a great thing to have and the app is definitely worth the price, but I hope the developer will make a few needed improvements.

Badly needs an update.

This app is poorly designed needs to have a major update making it easier to cache a specific page on demand. Right now you must turn off the pages you don't want to cache and then click cache pages. Also frequently it fails to cache the page leaving error messages that I don't find until I go to use it. Lastly more script supports would be nice. Buyer beware.

Doesn't work under iOS 8.2

Doesn't work at all. Not responsive at all. Wasted my $1.99.

How can you rate as worthless?
