We present a new application for BlackBerry that allows you to save web pages as PDF directly from your BlackBerry browser and browse them on your mobile device during flights or when you are in subway.
You can check this application here:
If you need to be offline, but you still want to read web, this application will help you. Save Web Page for further offline reading!
Open BlackBerry browser and go to the page, then select "Save Page As PDF" menu and in few seconds you have a copy of the web-page on your BlackBerry.
Another way to do it is copy & paste web page URL from your favourite browser to Save Web Page application.
You need a PDF reader to read saved web-pages. We recommend RepliGo Reader v188.8.131.52 or newer.
BTW, you can buy a bundle Save Web Page + RepliGoReader for only $8.96.
You need to setup APN settings if you plan to use Save Web Page over GPRS/EDGE/3G. APN settings can be obtained from your carrier and specified in Options / Advanced Options / TCP/IP.
Save Web Page also works on Wi-Fi.May 17, 2010 at 7:03 PM #182363
Please consider making some basic enhancements to this app in order to make it much more useful:
1) Allow a user to specify the output directory and/or filename.
2) Allow a user to save a locally stored HTML file (e.g., "file:///SDCard/…/file.html") as a PDF file.May 17, 2010 at 10:58 PM #182364

Great idea though, I work with PDF files a lot.May 18, 2010 at 6:37 AM #182365
Tom, thank you for your suggestions.
At this moment, user is able to specify output directory and filename in "Save" dialog, but we understand this is not very comfortable to type it manually and a file picker would do it better.
