PreCentral: Open up a local HTML file with Universe Browser

1 post in this topic

Universe DropdownDespite the fact that webOS and its apps are built using web technologies, there is actually no native way to open up a local html file on webOS phones. You can download an .html or .htm file and edit it with the Internalz Pro text editor, but you can't actually view it in the browser. While this functionality has finally been added to the TouchPad, the only way to do this on webOS phones is using a third party application such as Universe Web Browser by OpenMobl Systems. Once you have an html file on your device, you just need to:

  1. Open up Universe
  2. Swipe down from the top-left and select "Open File..." (you can also Meta-tap O).
  3. Find the file you want to open and tap on it. If there is a long list of files, you can also type-to-search to narrow down your results.
  4. A new card will open with you file in all its HTML glory

Universe Web Browser is available in the webOS App Catalog for $2.99 and is compatible with all webOS devices running webOS 1.4.5 or higher (although not currently available for the Pre3)
