Browse the web without distractions! Violoncello is a web browser that only displays text on websites. This is very handy if you are tired of videos, ads, and other annoyances while browsing the web. It is also quite useful for reading news articles, blog posts, and other text-heavy pages.

Violoncello offers a simple and intuitive user interface that's easy to get the hang of. It also features many helpful tools to make browsing the text-only web easier. While Violoncello lets you tweak many aspects of the browser for free, you can upgrade to the premium version of the app to unlock even more customization options! (Like changing the browser's colors and font.)

If you are interested in a text-only web browser that offers many features and is a ton of fun to use, look no further than Violoncello for iOS!
