However, for those of you who are prefer to use another third-party browser apps (e.g: Chrome, Firefox, Dolphin, Opera, etc), then you can also save a page to read it offline later though some of them have no option to save a page by default. You can do so by using third-party app called Pocket app.


How to save a page in any browser app?
You need an internet connection to do these steps. FYI, I've already tested these steps in the stock Browser(Internet app), Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Dolphin app. But, to make it easier, these steps use Chrome app and Dolphin app.


By using Chrome app:
  1. Download and install Pocket app from the Google Play Store and then follow the on-screen instructions to complete installation.
  2. Open Chrome app.
  3. Open a webpage by entering its address or URL in the address bar and then tap Go.
  4. Once the webpage is fully loaded, tap the Menu key then select Share...
  5. On pop up menu select Add to Pocket.
  6. The webpage will be saved to the Pocket app.


By using Dolphin app:
  1. Download and install Pocket app from the Google Play Store and then follow the on-screen instructions to complete installation.
  2. Open Dolphin app.
  3. Open a webpage by entering its address or URL in the address bar and then tap Go.
  4. Once the webpage is fully loaded, tap the Menu key then select Share page.
  5. Tap Add to Pocket.
  6. The webpage will be saved to the Pocket app.


How to read offline a saved page from any Browser app using Pocket app?
If previously you've saved a webpage from any browser to the Pocket app, then you can read it offline or without using an internet connection from Pocket app by using the following steps:
  1. Open Pocket app.
  2. By default, Pocket app will display all your saved pages.
  3. Tap the required save page you want to read.
  4. The selected saved page will be opened and ready to read.

For certain reason, some of users prefer to use third-party browser app than the stock one. So, by knowing these steps, now you can enjoy using an offline-reading-like feature by using Pocket app to read articles you've saved from any browser app you like.
