Wayback Machine 17+
Archive and explore past web
Designed for iPad
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.
Please send bug reports, questions and suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org
Fixes a login bug so that you can archive using the Share extension, and improved progress alert.
Ratings and Reviews
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.
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❗️
Good! But some issues
I actually do like this app, but I do wish you could just type in the title of the webpage or just search for any words instead of having to just type in the url. But the thing I would like fixed most is for there to be a back swipe or a back arrow to go to the previous page because it’s a pain with having to click the X or having to click something else that will bring up another page. Other than that, this is a great archival app
