iCab Mobile Updated - Offers A "Real Offline Mode"
The popular iOS Web browser, iCab Mobile (Web Browser), has recently been updated. Now, users of the app can take advantage of a "real offline mode," which uses a new disk cache feature - allowing fans to revisit webpages without an Internet connection. If a previously visited webpage is still in iCab Mobile's cache, it will automatically be loaded from there - providing users with a quicker, more reliable experience (especially when they're away from a Wi-Fi network). Furthermore, when a user has no Internet connection, or they are in Airplane Mode, any webpages that are stored on iCab Mobile's cache can be reaccessed without the need for a connection. If you often visit webpages with relatively fixed content, such as particular Wikipedia articles, you'll definitely appreciate this feature. Currently, iCab Mobile is available in the App Store for $1.99. And, what's more, it's a universal app - meaning it will run natively on an iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Check out the updated version, and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
