Is there an Android app to download an HTML page to a folder on my smartphone?

I usually make a copy in PDF format but sometimes it does not get very good.

I would prefer this for free. Some SE sites have codes I like to save in PDF format, but sometimes the PDF file loses a few lines of these codes. Saving in HTML format would not have this problem.

An Offline Reader would be an acceptable option.

  • What features do you need? Just the plain HTML code, or also embedded elements like images (e.g. for "offline reading")? How much are you willing to pay – or must it be free of charge? Maybe one of the Web Clippings or Offline Reader (disclosure: Links go to my site) apps fits your needs? – Izzy Oct 5 '17 at 12:33

  • So you want just to save the HTML code – and not the referenced material like images, CSS, etc? And also still open: Would an offline reader be considered an acceptable solution? – Izzy Oct 5 '17 at 23:15
  • Yes. Would be an option... – LCarvalho Oct 6 '17 at 0:41
  • Strongly pulling at your nose (asking for the 3rd time): Shall it only save the HTML, or "the page as shown" (including images, styling etc.)? – Izzy Oct 6 '17 at 5:56

The latest version of Google Chrome Browser has option to save the page for offline viewing. In the menu, you can see a download option. For accessing the pages quickly, you could bookmark the page, edit its name and then download that page for offline viewing.

  • I tried but could not find where it is saved so I can remove it and send it to the notebook – LCarvalho Oct 6 '17 at 11:50
  • @LCarvalho Even I tried searching for the file before writing the answer, but of no luck. I think I need to spend some more time on that. Deleting, you can do from the downloads section of the browser. I will update the answer if I find a proper solution. – BarathVutukuri Oct 6 '17 at 14:34
