    Great list,
    Thank you for sharing. By the way, if you’re using Firefox on your Android device – chances are you don’t need the Flynx app. Just enable the Reader View in the browser, which focuses on content and allows you to save pages for offline use.

    Just an FYI, if your phone is already bloated with apps, like mine.
