[prMac.com] Seattle, Washington - Codium Labs, LLC today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Offline Pages Pro 2.0.1, an exciting new update to their popular offline browser for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices. Offline Pages Pro makes it possible to work offline without any Internet connection. The Offline Pages Pro browser has been built with a new-generation WebKit at its core, so it supports HTML5, CSS3, and all modern technologies. By utilizing the app's intelligent crawler engine which makes exact replicas of large HTML5 websites, webpages and entire websites are saved with all of their formatting, documents, interactive galleries, and embedded videos intact.
"We love Offline Pages Pro's built-in browser," says AppChasers. "As opposed to Instapaper, Pocket, and other read-it-later apps, Offline Pages Pro can save entire websites along with their images and lower level links. That means you'll get an offline experience as if you were online. Offline Pages Pro gets our AppChasers 5-star rating." (April 2013)
Offline Pages Pro supports modern security standards and has the ability to sync websites that require entering credentials such as a login or password. The app protects browsing privacy by detecting and avoiding tracking scripts or frames hidden in pages. In Intelligent mode, Offline Pages Pro automatically detects body or content links and only follows them. It will ignore navigation, menus, archives, footers, or inline text ads.
"Put simply," reports Federico Vitticci of MacStories, "Offline Pages does just one thing and does it well: it lets you download any page from a website for offline reading. Unlike Instapaper, the app doesn't extract only the text part from a page, but it stores the whole layout together with images and stuff. Once you've read the page, you can delete it and forget about it." (11 April 2010)

In Version 2.0.1, significant modifications have been made to increase functionality and make Offline Pages Pro a more intuitive experience. The update features a fully reinvented User Interface and a redesigned fullscreen mode for uncluttered reading. Saving a page for offline reading involves a simple tap of the green button while surfing the web in Offline Pages Pro's built-in browser. A drop-down menu allows the users to set options including the auto-update feature and download link settings. Automatic updates can be set to update stored websites in background while only using available home or office connections.
"What makes this cool app different from most apps of its kind is that it actually saves the entire webpage to your phone and not just the text," says Dave LeClair of MakeUseOf (31 Oct 2012). "It saves the formatting, and you would never be able to tell that you are looking at the page offline. This is an incredibly useful app for anyone who needs to be without cell phone signal for extended periods. Saving your favorite places on the web for viewing later is awesome, and it can save you a lot of boredom."
Now a 64-bit app with iOS 7 support, the updated version of Offline Pages Pro offers in-app sharing to popular social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Dropbox, and Evernote. There is also improved support for AJAX, YouTube and Vimeo, and several performance and bug fixes.
Offline Pages Pro has made improvements to help organize and sync the user's data. In addition to a tabbed browser, users can send links from any PC, Mac, or iPad directly to their iOS device by email or using the browser extension. The offline library of websites can be easily organized in folders and assigned tags to filter them down by subject.
"Offline Pages Pro is a deceptively simple and incredibly powerful offline browser," says Andrei Chtcherbatchenko, founder of Codium Labs, LLC. "It is widely regarded as the most accurate offline browser available today on any platform and was the Top #3 app in the US App Store in April of 2010. Offline Pages Pro is perfect for anyone who wants offline access to their web pages and websites when an Internet connection isn't available. Offline Pages Pro is also a universal app. Buy it once and you can run it on all of your iOS devices."
