In the good old days of not so pervasive and fast internet access, utilities like HTTrack were indispensable for reading web pages offline. A lot has changed since then, but a tool for saving web pages for offline access can still come in handy in many situations. While HTTrack is still a good option on the Linux desktop, the Save for Offline app has got you covered if you happen to use an Android device.

Unlike services such as Pocket and Wallabag that store reformatted versions of pages, Save for Offline saves pages in the native HTML format on your device. This means that you can open and view fetched pages using a regular browser. The app integrates with the Android sharing functionality, so you can save the currently viewed page using the Share command. The app's interface sports grid and list layouts complete with thumbnails of saved pages. And the build-in viewer makes it possible to read pages directly from within the app.

Save for Offine can be installed directly from the project's GitHub repository or through the F-Droid store.
