Having a location-independent job has its perks like working from any place in the world and giving you more time to travel. If you are a travel blogger or a freelance worker who depends on internet connection to get the job done, chances are, there are travel destinations where internet is not available or so slow that it tests your patience.
Have you experienced being on a long haul trip on a bus, trying to finish your blog but struggling to get your mobile WiFi work? Or perhaps you were invited to a weekend in a remote area only to find out there is no internet. Disappointing it may seem but this does not have to really be a nightmare. There are offline apps you can use even if you are on the road and unplugged.
This app is useful for saving online content that you can view at a later time, offline. Even if you need to access it from your smart device or laptop when you are enjoying sunset in a beach, there are available versions of the app for these devices. By simply synchronizing the app while still online, you can retrieve the file for later.
