Webbapps are nice but they have 1 problem, they aren’t portable .. well untill now :)

There’s a new service out called iwebsaver, it allows you to save any webbapp locally to your iphone, so you can play/use it whenever you feel like it. It also works for sites. Maybee you wan’t to keep a copy of iPhoneFreakz on your iPhone? Well now you can.

I have tested it with everybody’s favorite webapp game bejeweled (well not everybody’s but a lot of people like it :)

Enough chit chat, let me show you how it works.

1) First of all try to find out what the webapp’s url is.

For Bejeweled it’s http://static.popcap.com/iphone/ so let’s take that one as a test.

2) Open your safari browser and navigate to the site http://iwebsaver.com/

3) Type the url of the webapp or site you wan’t to save.

4) Press the save it now button. Wait some time and look at the add untill you see a popup.

5) Press ok, and let the app load. After that it has loaded, press the + sign.

6) Choose either Add bookmark, or add to home screen. (i’ll take home screen)

7) Give you app a name.

8) Go to your desktop and click the icon whenever you wan’t to play it offline

Voila that’s it, easy :)

If you know of any cool webapps that are worth saving, just leave a comment.

Enjoy

    Does this apply only to games or other web apps as well e.g. calculators etc. Please let me know…Thanks for an excellent discovery.

    Hi Amins,

    It works for everything that is web based :)

    its obvious you never then tried to run Bejewelled offline using this method. It does *not* work – you just get the loading screen. It does work if the phone is online using the data URL but what is the point in that ?

  6. Multinova Says:

    Ok, it’s obvious that you didn’t look at the screens. You can clearly see that my wifi is disabled. It’s possible that popcap modified there software but when i tried it, it worked.

  7. Multinova Says:

    Just tried it and it does work. Sorry you must have a problem
