TechClock's Review of Offline Pages ProReviewed on 2/4/18 8:02 PM
This app is much more than a solid web crawler/spider but I will start with its basic crawling ability. This app actually crawls where you tell it to and does a great job of rendering the crawled website accurately. Not sure why so many crawlers seem to fall off the rails when it comes to how far they crawl and limit where you tell it to but this app gets it right. This app includes a cloud sync service which syncs your crawled pages to all your devices where the app is installed aka iPhone, iPad, and if you buy the Mac version, on your Mac. The app really comes alive if you have a Mac and buy the Mac version of this app. On the Mac there is an export option under the File menu allowing you to save a local crawled copy of the website. I use this to store important sites on Dropbox— I copy the local website folder created by offline reader to Dropbox. The app lets you setup a “secret” email address where you can email web pages to be crawled or documents. Great for quick notes and reminders. On top of this there are a large range of innovative features including the ability to update previously crawled pages, a very fast built-in reader, integration with the native iOS safari app via a bookmark, spotlight integration, and many other features.

Useful app but it needs a better way to sort through saved pages. It has tagging functionality but as far as I can tell there's no way to search or filter by tag? It also randomly loses your tabs.
