Archive and explore past web

Archive Web pages and Tweets to the Wayback Machine!

To archive Web pages or Tweets simply "Share" them to this app.

From Safari - select the "Share" icon at the bottom of the screen then select this "Wayback Machine" app.

From the Twitter app - select the "v" icon at top-right of Tweets, select "Share Tweets via..." then select this "Wayback Machine" app.

But first you must add this app to your iOS device's "Share" feature by selecting the Share icon (the up-pointing arrow at the bottom of Safari) then selecting the "..." (More) button and finally adding this app.

After you have archived your web pages or Tweets you can confidently share their Wayback Machine URLs via Twitter, Facebook, Email, etc. knowing they will be there for decades to come.

A disappointment

In some ways, this is better than using the Wayback Machine in Safari, but in many more ways this app is extremely restrictive.

For example, there is no way to navigate backwards if you click a link.

There is no refresh option, which is key for whatever reason on Wayback.

I support and donate to the Internet Archive, but this app isn’t ready for release.

One thing they did extremely well is the time-based overview. I think it’s extremely well thought out and executed. If the app did two things, it would be 5-stars in my mind:

1, do not require a login for basic use

2, build more controls into the browser, including navigation, reload, and bookmarking

Thank you for developing this app.

The Internet Archive app was and still is difficult for me to navigate. For example, after finding a particular show on Google that led me to the archives, and so I created an account. At that time I was able to watch what I had found and add it to “my favorites”. Later on, I downloaded the app. I tried logging in, and it said that I have an account but “my favorites” aren’t there. There’s no option to find them either. However, I have google on my fire stick and was able to access it there, along with my favorites. So, it’s very confusing. As with other reviewers, I agree there should be other input options other than only being able to use the URL. Also, 2 days after having “my favorites” saved and able to watch a few, as of today, there’s a video error and those “files” will no longer play. None of them and I can’t “favorite” them either. I don’t know what kind of glitch that is, but I believe I’d you work out those minor “bugs”, the app would be great. Not too shabby for now though, great start.

5 ⭐️ potential, but...🤔 please update‼️

The Archive has enough talented admirers to improve the two IA apps. Improving them is long overdue.

Everyone loves the Internet Archive and the incredible effort that goes into it. It's indispensable for students and lovers of knowledge the world over. It greatly expands access to knowledge and keeps liars at bay with the truth of original sources. It's obviously a labor of love. Thank you!

It's time to level up your two apps, time to make them world-class. Brewster: please tap into your volunteer resources. *Read the critical reviews*, take them seriously, and update❗️
