Offline – An Offline Browser is a free application for Google Android devices that you can use to download web pages to your device to read them at any time even when you don’t have an Internet connection at all or one that is unreliable.
This can be quite useful at times. Reading the latest articles of your favorite online newspaper in the subway, having tourist information at hand right away while you are on vacation, or troubleshooting articles from your favorite tech blog that you can use for work.
