Surfing the web without an internet connection on Android? It's possible!

Has this ever happened to you? Someone sends you a link, you click on it, and your current Wi-Fi or mobile data is the pits so the link won’t work. This can be extremely frustrating! Fear not! An application called Cosmos Browser makes the impossible possible: you will be able to surf the internet WITHOUT a web connection on your Android. Here’s how it works.

It’s not science fiction either: Cosmos offers a web surfing service that works without internet. How does it work? If you want to access a page on the web, you simply input the URL in Cosmos Browser as you normally would, and this will be sent to Cosmos via SMS. You will then be sent a series of SMSes containing the compressed page content back, where it will be displayed in the browser (minus CSS and Javascript). It won’t look pretty, but you'll still get the most important information.

The app isn’t available yet, but should arrive in the Play Store at the end of September. The idea isn’t new either, however this will be the first time that this service is made available for all, a great way to make the use of the internet a universal good, even if you are stuck in the middle of nowhere. As long as you have cellular reception that is!
