WebOffline is a jailbreak tweak that allows you to save entire web pages for offline viewing in Safari. It’s tightly integrated with Apple’s stock iPhone browser, and makes offline reading fairly effortless.

While there are other 3rd-party offline browsing solutions available, if you’re looking for the most native implementation you can come by, WebOffline may be worth a look…

To use WebOffline, all you need to do is press the save button located in your toolbar or action-sheet to save for offline viewing. You can then go to Bookmarks > Saved Pages to access all of your saved pages, even when your device is devoid of 3G or Wi-Fi connectivity.

WebOffline is one of the simplest native implementations of offline reading I’ve seen thus far, but it doesn’t come without a price. At $1.99 on Cydia’s BigBoss repo, some may think it’s too pricey.

I say if you’re always in situations where you’re lacking connectivity, you might consider WebOffline to be a sound investment.

  • Isn’t it kinda the same as Instapaper?

      Yes; it is. Just an expensive copy of the Instapaper plug-in.

    Keeps crashing safari every time I try to save.
