Browsing on iOS 6
Web browsing and offline reading
The updates in iOS 6 make it the first major mobile platform to support offline browsing using the native browser, in this case Safari.
Windows Phone and Android both suffer here, as they offer no in-built options for offline reading of web pages. However, they both have third-party apps that can do this, albeit slightly less graciously than a native option.
Its competitors' lack of native offline support means Apple currently has a jump on its rivals. However, with hundreds of thousands of apps on the Google Play store, people can be sure to find one with the features they want. Unfortunately, due to the size of the Windows Phone ecosystem right now, I can't say the same for that OS, particularly not if you are looking for a free version.
