Surfed is a Safari history and bookmark manager, read and listen later client and web automation tool.
Surfed, your new Safari history and bookmark manager and browsing statistic tool.
Your Safari browsing history with a powerful search.
Surfed stores the browsing history of all visited websites in Safari. This allows Surfed to search the history using a variety of metadata and thus find the desired web pages faster and more accurately.
Record the history allows you to create dynamic lists of visited websites, statistics of browsing activities and get an accurate overview of all sessions.
Create smart lists from your browsing history or tags.
Collections are smart lists that can use multiple filter terms and conditions to find the desired web pages.
The setup is simple and can contain an unlimited number of AND/OR relations. There are a variety of search fields for this.
Collections can show either an individual search history or the web pages grouped together.
Tag your websites and find it easier.
Web pages in Safari or links imported from third party applications can be tagged with one or more tags and are later discoverable under the tag. Tags can be found via list search, global search and via iOS Spotlight.
Tags can be organized into folders.
# Web Trigger
Web Trigger is a new web automation feature in Surfed.
Checkout the gallery for easy to install pre-configured Web Trigger. Every web trigger can contain multiple actions which will be performed, when at least one trigger rule matches the criteria.
A trigger rule group can contain multiple search terms, with a lot of options.
Have an overview of your browsing activities.
Each browsing activity is stored with start and end time. Thus, different statistics can be generated. For each accessed web page a detailed overview with time and duration can be viewed.
Top Domains and Top Pages give an overview of popular web pages. Session Time shows which web pages have been visited the longest. Besides the sum of all days, a specific day can also be shown, by paging the date in the header of the list. Statistics view shows the sum of all activities for specific time periods. The day view is also available as a widget.

Ratings and Reviews
Ever notice how some google searches disappear in Safaris history? This app fixes that issue. It tracks whatever you want to track and let’s you BLOCK the tracking of whatever you don’t want to track. Personally, I just use it to track my Google searches—because Safari makes them disappear! This app is so good, it feels like something Apple would do. My only request is for this app to have iCloud sync. It would be a great pro feature — a very logical feature I think people would pay for. Just today, I was using this app on an iPad mini; and had to go to my main IPad to find a Google search (because the history doesn’t sync).
Developer Response ,
Thanks a lot for this awesome review! It's great to read that the app helps you in everyday life. iCloud Sync will definitely be integrated soon, so that the history and all created tags and smart lists will be compared across all devices. Thank you and continue to enjoy it!
Great concept - still not fleshed out
I decided to support the app based on the potential. I'm hoping it does get developed. For now, the app has plenty of bugs. For example, the Smart Collections don't work. I've both created my own, and added some from the gallery, and they don't add or tag anything. In addition, the app will randomly ask me to buy the Pro version when I try to do something, even though I've already paid for it.
At this time, the app also doesn't sync between devices, so you have to export and import everything. This is a pro purchase. It was the reason I upgraded, only to encounter multiple problems when trying to upload.
Hope these issues get fixed soon, because it does have potential. I'll gladly update my review when that happens.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for the detailed feedback! I would be very grateful if you could contact us by e-mail and send us a screenshot of the Smart Collections so that we can check why they do not work for you.
If the Pro functions have been purchased, the dialog should no longer be displayed.
A device sync will definitely come in a future version. Favorites, tags and smart collections can already be synchronized via shortcuts.
looking forward to the future of the app
looking forward to the future of the app. I don't think its scratched the surface of what it'll end up being able to do.
The mac version has some quirks that I think need to be ironed out.
1) thanks for making the menu bar icon and being able to hide the icon from the dock, but when clicking a reminder url the app opens, i don't think it needs to though!
