Free mobile browser and file manager
Bolt Browser and Documents is a free productivity tool created by Danyil Vasilenko that functions as both mobile browser and file manager. Here, users can navigate multiple webpages. Simultaneously, they can also save files and documents for offline access and editing. They can also download videos, photos, music, and other media, and organize their files into custom folders. The browser is in private mode by default, allowing you to bypass restrictions.
What does the app offer?
Bolt Browser and Documents is primarily a browser offering secure browsing, allowing you to visit various websites without leaving any history. Additionally, it incorporates an adblocker program so that you can browse with no distraction. Adblocking requires zero configuration. You only need to launch the browser to enable it. There’s also an option to turn on VPN, letting you access blocked or restricted websites. Additional security feature is its Touch or Face ID option; the app can't be used without a recognized ID.
Aside from private browsing, the app allows you to download materials from the web. This includes documents, audio, and visual media. Whenever there is a video or music on a webpage, the app will automatically ask you if you want to download it. Users also have the option to save the text content of a webpage as an HTML, web archive, snapshot, or PDF. The app also allows you to organize your downloaded files into folders for easier management.
Bolt Browser and Documents is a free-to-use application. It's also easy to use and lightweight. However, while it is a handy program, it comes with a few flaws. For one, the adblocker and VPN are not free. Without paying for them, you'll submit yourself to ads constantly popping and interrupting your browsing. Additionally, the app is prone to crashing, with no fix but to restart your device.
Is the app good?
At first glance, Bolt Browser and Documents is a good alternative to your default browser. With it, you can browse privately and even download contents that took your fancy. However, as you continue using it, all its flaws will start to creep in. Ads will constantly interrupt you unless you pay for an adblocker. Moreover, you'll find that the app often crashes, making it unstable and unreliable.
