Those of you who subscribed to our original digital edition may have preferred downloading Mountain Record on your desktop computer, tablet or smartphone for reading offline. While the new online edition of Mountain Record can’t be downloaded directly from the website, there are ways to download webpages for offline reading.
Here are a couple suggestions:
1. Web2PDF This website is good for those who are less tech-oriented. Simply copy and paste the url of any article or page on the Mountain Record website into the url field, and click “Convert to PDF.” After a few moments, you’ll see the file ready for download. You’ll have the option of “Download PDF,” which downloads the file directly to your computer or device, or “Save to Google Docs,” which opens the file in Google Docs for you to save to your Google Drive or print.
2. Pocket This app allows you to save articles from the web to any device for offline reading. It’s available for major devices and platforms including iPad, iPhone, Android, Mac, Kindle Fire, Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Opera and Windows. It’s free to sign up, and their site contains good information about how to get started.
Both of these options save web pages with the formatting and photos intact, so you’ll be able to enjoy all articles and other content from Mountain Record online, even when you’re not connected to the internet.
