Almost every smartphone user rents a mobile internet connection to get access to the world wide web, and a majority of them make great efforts to save that extra bit of mobile data. Since it is about browsing mostly, one of the best ways to save mobile data is saving the webpage for offline reading.

The very feature of saving pages for offline reading comes in very handy when you are planning to visit a place where data connections are expensive, or when data connection is unavailable. Now the question is, how and on what apps can you save webpages for offline reading?

Today’s post will consist of a couple of applications/browsers that offer the feature of saving webpages. So let us get started.

1. Stock Android Browser: This is the browser that comes preinstalled on android. Following the response that third party browsers have been getting, Google added the feature to the stock browser. To save a webpage in the stock browser, tap on the settings/preferences button and hit Save For Offline Reading. To access the saved webpage, open the Bookmarks and navigate to the Saved Pages section.

    Boat browser saves only html file, it doesn’t save images for offline reading. If you are disconnected from internet, your saved page will not show correctly.
