How does it work? WebToolbox provides a directory of tools that can be installed in the Bookmarks section of your device's Safari browser. Each tool can be installed individually so you only install what you will use. Installation is easy - just watch the included instructional video for a step-by-step guide.
iPad Users: We have received a few questions about the instructions on iPad. Even though the instructional video is shown on an iPhone, the process for iPad is exactly the same. The only difference is the "Bookmarks" buttons are in the top toolbox and not the bottom toolbar. Thanks for reading.
Great for "find in page" ability
I won't use most of the options this app offers, but it was worth the money just for me to be able to search within a webpage. Found results are highlighted in bright yellow. Better, however, would be the ability to also jump directly to each found result.
I also installed the webpage info component. It uses a third-party website, which is a little bit of a turnoff. However, in all honesty I wouldn't have known that website even existed otherwise, and this app does make finding the information easier than it would be by visiting the website without the app.
I also installed the save as PDF component. It works well enough, although the pages are saved in landscape orientation, which is a bit clumsy looking.
I don't see why people think the installation of individual components is so difficult. Granted, it's not a "one-tap" operation, but it's pretty close (maybe 5 taps). It is easier to install than Instapaper, for any of you out there who have also used that app. I am a web designer, so perhaps that makes the installation less intimidating to me than the average user. But still, if you just follow the instructions, you should be fine.
The installation instructions are hard to follow on an iPad, but work. The features are installed as bookmarks in Safari. You have to install a feature from the Toolbox App, then immediately go into Safari, edit the newly installed bookmarks, and delete and paste a new URL into the definition of that Bookmark. The new URL is preloaded into the clipboard when you install the Bookmark from the Toolbox, so you don't have to know the details. Onscreen instructions take you through all this, but as I said, they can be slightly vague. I installed "Find in Page," which works beautifully (not that anybody can understand why this is missing from the iPad version of Safari to begin with). I also installed "Save to PDF," which for me is really helpful. It creates a PDF version of the website your looking at by posting it to another URL. I was able to cut and paste that URL into the iAnnotate PDF reader and markup app, to save a permanent copy of the PDF.
Highly Useful = Very True!
This is by far one of the greatest Apps I have purchased. 1 download, and I have dozens of tools on my iPhone's (and iPad!) mobile Safari. Most of these tools should have been built into the iOS itself, Apple could learn a thing or 2 from these developers. To the person (SKW) who left the 1 star below me, saying that this app just installs websites has no idea what he's talking about. Don't be fooled that these are installed into your bookmarks, i've installed many of them and they add a great deal of useful functionality that i never thought before was possible. Bottom line:
$2 to have 60 HIGHLY USEFUL Tools on my iPod,iPhone, and iPad with FREE updates = Priceless !
I'm recommending this to potential buyers, and everyone I know who owns an iDevice. Get It !
