This Android app lets you browse sites without data connection
Cosmos is a web browser for smartphones and tablets that lets its users browse online without having the need for data connection. It’s currently available only for Android and is now downloadable on Google Play Store.
Update: The app is currently unavailable from the Play Store. Maybe the company pulled it out for last minute changes before it becomes available (again)? We’ll update this article once we get new info.
The premise of Cosmos is simple – it sends an SMS message to the company’s system that locates the source website and converts it into an HTML package. It will then send a zip file back to your phone in which case Cosmos will unzip it and display it on the browser for you to view. As you’re browsing the web for free, do expect some limitations: With Cosmos, photos (and most likely videos) wouldn’t be included in the zipped package. Although quite limiting, it’s an understandable trade-off if you ask us.
The browser is still in its early stage of development so it’s possible that we may still see a better version in the future. Partner this with Smart’s free 30MB of data or Globe’s free Facebook promo and you’re pretty much online for the day without having to spend a single centavo.
