    This is a great app if you're privacy focused and/or want to keep things lightweight. Some improvements I'd suggest would be to have different cookie stores for each app and the ability to create multiple apps for the same URL. I'm basically trying to have multiple accounts logged in for the same URL.

  2. guest-avatar

    This app works great for what's app web version on my tablet, after it's running on my phone. Make sure you set the user agent string to desktop. Only down sides is the lite app keeps on reloading if I havent opened it for a while. Lastly there is no notifications from what's app I use join by joaoapps for that.

  3. guest-avatar

    I enjoy the app, everthing is great but i have one problem. When i minimalize the page or my screen times out any audio feeds stop totally. What can i do to fix this problem in what is otherwise a flawless app.

  4. guest-avatar

    Good for Google Shopping list shortcut. Though the swipe actions are a little buggy. Still better than having to talk to my phone in a supermarket to open my shopping list or use an ugly chrome shortcut. And nice to display the webpage like an app fullscreens with no browser frame

  5. guest-avatar

    This app is a dream come true! As far as using apps are concerned I am a total app hog!! Hermit Lite Apps makes it easy to install lite versions of popular as well as less popular apps. If it were possible I would install all my favorite apps using the Hermit Lite Apps Broswer!!!

  6. guest-avatar

    Great app. Very useful and light on resources, I uninstalled some of the native apps and replaced them with Hermit light apps. My phone works faster now.

    I use this app on both my Samsung phone and e-ink tablet. Works well at just showing article content. Love the dark mode

    This app save from %90 of the annoying ads. Thanks to hermit for this fast and flexible app. I recommend Hermit to all android users.

    Love it. Just wish it would remember passwords/autofill.

  10. guest-avatar

    At first I thought it was helpful but making web apps from my browser actually works better.

  11. guest-avatar

    Nicely done, I forget that the Lite app isn't an app created by the website itself.

  12. guest-avatar

    Awesome app, you should must try it if you have issues with internal memory.

  13. guest-avatar

    very good app for low and high devices.It consume little space.So download it.

  14. guest-avatar

    Hermit is awesome because it lets me use the web app versions of all the social networks without installing their bloatware native apps. Well done devs! 👍🏻

    Possibly the only way to achieve add free Instagram. My favourite app at the moment.

    Wow!! save password.. Lite apps. Fast browsing. Goodjob!

  21. guest-avatar

    I can not give this app less than 5 stars. It's (near) perfect, works as advertised, can be tried freely without limits nor ads before buying the premium version. Especially now with list view (previously there was only icon view, I don't mind it too much but list view is much better). So far I'm using this app for Fallen London, Kingdom of Loathing, and Whatsapp Web. All work perfectly.

    2019-08-23T18:47:26.776Z

    Well, love it, it's a bit clunky in spots but overall, fantastic. I'm doing this review for one reason. Developer goes into detailed explanations why the best way is to contact them through feedback in app, i have premium and there's no feedback button anywhere i could find. I simply wonder if and when is fingerprint support coming to open any lite app. Would love to be able to have ability to apply generic CSS per lite app as well as customize it per app. Simple interface to edit css colors.

  23. guest-avatar

    ⓇⒺⓅⓁⓎ: You can only open the original page that's listed in Lite apps. For example, you cannot open Google, search for something, and click on your search result, and have it remain after going to another Lite app. Once your leave that page, it returns to Google's homepage. Hermit is a great app in the sense that it is different than most apps here,, but it needs the option of having multiple tabs on each Lite app, and having them remain open after your switch Lite apps

  24. guest-avatar

    I enjoy this app as a way to protect my privacy and battery life. I can stay logged out of my social apps on my main browser so I don't get tracked around the web, and I don't need apps from the social media companies on my phone either, sucking up my data and battery. Two changes I'd suggest: it seems to take over the direct share entries on my phone which I'd like to disable. And I want the ability to remove the "sent from hermit" text when sharing. It used to be an option but was removed.

  25. guest-avatar

    Very useful for devices, with "conservative amounts of storage space". I only wish I would've discovered it sooner because it would have definitely come in handy with a couple of my previous phones that had only 4GB usable memory after the system uses the first 4 for the OS. It's kinda sad that if you can't throw down $1000 for a phone, u get a device that you install maybe 4 useful apps on and storage is already full!

  26. guest-avatar

    I use Hermit to access online training videos on platforms that have not yet been optimized with their own app for mobile devices. I can create a link to the login page for a given account, run it as a desktop site and it just works. It's very convenient, and saves me a ton of time.

  27. guest-avatar

    The concept is good but the UX is total garbage, like a five year old developed it. Can't figure out a way to remove the lite apps from the main screen (should be able to tap & hold for a context menu). Also, I went to create a new "lite app" for Pinterest and couldn't even get logged in correctly through your app, let alone have it actually accurately download the favicon and add it to my home screen. Just a mess....

  28. guest-avatar

    Thanks for the new update! (And the settings button in reader mode, since I had no idea there was a swipe out panel on the right until I emailed about it, which you were great about, BTW)! Definitely a useful app to cache away the stuff you don't want to bother with a full app for when a Lite App is perfect. Cheers!

  29. guest-avatar

    Seems there is no way around, and being required to enroll in "early access",; your subscription product if you wish to do anything other than minimal FB or email. I am notime even able to access my one drive/ Google apps. I can't even find info on how to enroll in premium, for access to more set-up and app options

  30. guest-avatar

    I'm presently using the trial version of Hermit to access chessable, which doesn't have it's own app. Hermit seems to be doing a decent job with it. The dark mode however is just a high contrast mode, which doesn't help much with most sites.

  31. guest-avatar

    Works better than a lot of native apps!

  32. guest-avatar

    Only issue I've run into so far is trying to access my files while using an app (like uploading a photo), I can't select any & the app reloads. Otherwise: So far so good! Keep up the work dev, I love lite apps :)

  33. guest-avatar

    Excellent app, truly unique, delivering everything that's promised, I have been using it for a.long time and couldn't be happier with it but it's getting better and better all the time, a pleasure to use it, thank you to the excellent hardworking developer

  34. guest-avatar

    Very Awesome App!! but two things which you can improve 1. Add Password to setting for lite apps bcoz. setting is easily accessible to children 2.lite apps are not like actual app.. I am unable to put them in kids space #not available in as apps in apps management .. Thnks for the app😊😊

  35. guest-avatar

    Works really well for Facebook and Messenger separately. Too bad I can't quite integrate them. I have to get out if one to use the other, even though I can see the notification count. Android 10 crapped it out. Reinstall fixed it. Jim S.

  36. guest-avatar

    Fantastic! Finally, web apps as first class citizens. I've been wanting something like this for the longest time. Love that I can customize so much about each app UI. You solved the problem so I didn't have to.

  37. guest-avatar

    Just for the record, these folks provided some of the best customer service I've received from any app developer. They absolutely earned the pro license I bought from them. This is a good one to support, folks. Don't overlook this developer! :)

  38. guest-avatar

    Very easy for fresh user.

  39. guest-avatar

    Great app. I have a few personal webapps that I use regularly. Nice to get to treat them as individual apps rather than find them among the tabs of my browser.

  40. guest-avatar

    It helped me to save storage for my study archives allowing me to delete the original apps(too big) for lite apps(works surprisingly smooth and funcional, much better than Chrome's web apps)

    Very useful and fully functional. All the features of every popular social media site without the demanding storage and RAM usage.

  42. guest-avatar

    It would be an absolute joy to utilise this wonderful app, but sadly it cannot remember passwords... Which is a bummer, because I would have like million more uses for it...

  43. guest-avatar

    Makes using sites that's are awful on mobile so much more better to navigate and use. Great for DJs / online record shops and other similar sites. Made my work flow much better when travelling

  44. guest-avatar

    If you need an mobile experience using any web application, Hermit is your best friend.

    Make hermit as default browser so that i can use hermit for all website instead of chrome or other browser, which make it a alrounder, for eg: if i open a instagram link in a message it will open hermit browser and automatically log in to my account, since i have a lite app for instagram, every selection i made in the browser will refect in lite app, since they are same app and using same account, i thought it's cool, and make hermit a primary app for both browsing and app content, consider it.

    App Its Ok!Hi I rated this a 2/5 star rating; reason is because of 1). I think that its totally unfair that in order to continue using this app to downgrade storage app to lite you must buy the premium version. I think this is utter foolishness!(in my own opinion). Apology to the Team if anyone is offended by this posts. 2). Finally if this is a free version app to help save storage space on any device why can't we use the app as it is without upgrading to the premium version.Tfs app btw.

    great lite weight easy on phone resources (battery, memory, etc) app that just plain works. Better than the apps Facebook makes, especially that pile of junk named Messager. only caveat is you have to close the app and reopen it after sending a message. The reason is you won't see your message you just sent. I think the only people who would find this annoying would be people that thrive on Facebook messenger. might be just my phone though as well.

    You have an amazing application. I love it. I would say many good things here but only have a 500 character limit. Sorry broski I have a couple things here: 1. Hermit will not access my location. It has full permissions, but the GPS icon wont even appear on the notification bar. My GPS works with other apps like chrome and GPS but hermit doesn't seem like it wants to use it. It just says give location permissions to access locations. I tried it with many websites including Uber+Uber Eats. Help?

    Came across this app long back but didn't understand the need of it . It was suggested recently by many people in suggestion threads & wanted to try it out. Pretty useful app & saves a ton of space on the device. They have apps for most of the websites that I frequently browse so I'm completely satisfied with it. Not to forget the different customization options it provides .Totally worth switching to.

  80. guest-avatar

    App seems very very useful and I'd love it more.if it didn't keep crashing on my phone. Seems like every other time I enter the app it freezes than crashes soon after. Some of the interface could use a bit of polish and customization but that's nitpicking. This app as the dev says is for power users. Hopefully an update in the future will fix my issues and I can try this again.

    Edit: Found the clear for cache/cookies. I had looked and somehow missed it under the main menu. That fixed my issue that I originally reported, thanks! The app works great. I love being able to control specific permissions, block ads, trackers, etc. Using this for Facebook as well as a number of other web sites. Would definitely recommend.

  82. guest-avatar

    This app is amazing. I've been able to uninstall about 40 apps so far, which is improving battery life. It's very smooth and I can control functionality that I can't control or doesn't exist in a standard browser or website. I appreciate the security features, too. A few glitches here & there and I can't use it to replace some apps, but some of those are caused by the websites themselves. But that's nothing compared to the usefulness of this app. Great job!

  83. guest-avatar

    This app is perfect for all the devices that dont offer expansible storage and ship with 64GB or less. This feature rich app isnt like anything Ive come across before on Android. Some noteworthy OTB features are a list of premade social media apps, news, and education among other utilities and tools. Hermit also provides users with apps that could take the place of system apps like messages, gmail or even "Phone". My favorite feature in Hermit is by far the reader mode which only costs $6, once.

    This is a really, really good app. The Paid for section cements this. At first I didn't get it. I just got Hermit to be able to make my phone run faster by not having so many apps running on my phone. But recently Hermit came into its own and I understood how powerful this app is. An idiots guide to getting the rss feed notifications to work with the things you turn into apps would be nice. I understand not all apps an do this but it still to be able to understand how to do it properly.

    Tried this just to set up Google news with full dark theme and bigger text, since Google's app is still lacking. But I found it useful for more apps and websites I visit. It's great to be able to individually theme each site, no browser I have used/tried can do this. Very well made and stable, only 1 issue so far is Google plus (lite app) won't open links on posts, but all other lite app work so I'm guessing this is something to do with G+. Well worth the pro upgrade. Many thanks

    I love it, but... after last update lost all my apps. And I had many. So now it is quite annoying that need re-create them one by one, if I will actually remember everything I had there. The same goes to my tablet and phone. So maybe an option to make some kind of backup would be nice. Just saying.

    Chrome "Home Screen" shortcuts allow you to drop the shortcut into a folder in your launcher (at least in Nova). Removing the shortcut from your home screen. Hermit doesn't seem to allow something like that. When attempted, the shortcut in the folder ends up as "App isn't installed". Enabling something like this would help tremendously! I would be able to de-app my phone by more than half and keep my home screen clean. Has this request been made before?

    Why isnt this advertised more? I only stumbled upon this app when I was looking for lighter apps. This is amazing. Facebook, Reddit, and shopping apps work great. This runs very smoothly on my Android Go device and I've been using it for my Poco F1 as well. The apps are very light and save me a lot of space. I just wish I could "make" the app outside of the main app without putting it on the home screen. Overall, very satisfied.

    Good idea. But... How to get rid of the annoying "Reader" suggestion that shows over every video I'm trying to watch? Also is it impossible to switch off the wierd video filter in "Night mode" or it's just that I couldn't find the option for it. It breaks contrast and colours in video playback. EDIT: Have some respect for your customers. I want to use these features not turn them off. I don't want them to affect video playback. Who needs reading time estimates in a full screen video or dimming filter over that said video if your phone already does that for you automatically. Fixing that should be easy since this app is nothing more than a heavily simplified web browser.

    My phone was clogged with numerous storage/memory/battery hungry apps. i tried Hermit when it first offered three free lite app creations, and based on the first impression, I purchased the premium version, to support the developers with this awesome utility app they made. This app alone can replace a lot of rogue apps, and can easily extend your device's life. Note : Also, the guys at Chimbori are super friendly, and they responded to all my queries promptly. Highly recommended browser app.

    Great app, i found it after discovering that some apps were causing a lot of wackelock. It would be great if all shortcuts could be recreated at once after a restore from backup. Also it would make it more convenient if the login info for websites was prepoluted like in Chrome so we would just have to hit login instead of first having to click the login box to choose credentials.

    This app is more useful i recommend to all ,This app creates lite version of a App's you needed and (it's plus point is " dark mode, battery consumption, less storage needed , Ads Free"), it's interface is easy and good . ("But it lags few times so i rated it 4 star's 🌟")plz bug's as fast as you can...

    I stumbled on this App when watching a YouTube video about Android Apps. I'm really impressed with the functionality and detail. It's a browser that creates a pseudo-App environment. For example, I've longed wanted an App for Real Clear History. Hermit takes it's browser and creates a lite App that mimics what an App should do. It has many great options for Ad blocking, text size control, etc. What a great App. PS: Only suggestion so far is for a folder structure in the Lite App List.

    Wouldn't work site frequented (on Hoop.la) it opened the site main page, site's presentation photo blurred out (they do show ads there on occasion...???), site menu would not function at all. Seemed to use browser I wished unistalled too. I hit one of the Herm. icons the kiwi menu is up. Desktop as premium basically means not free. I have yet to enjoy a mobile view to enjoy. Sorry 4 Caveman speak/not enough G-space for English anymore.

    Hey, can you fix dark mode in Instagram. Make the Instagram logo and other buttons on the page white or more brighter (the buttons right now are dark grey). Also, the photo displayed are too dim, please increase its brightness. The 3rd one, please remove white line above each photo displayed. It looks so weird. Thank you.

    This app does not make it clear on how to remove lite apps after creating them, within the app. It was so unclear that i decided to remove the app. Perhaps a redesign is needed?

    would give it a 5star but the app won't let you see the stories on Instagram while on Night Mode it's just plain black screen and videos on Instagram feed are shown with very low brightness even if you turn on your brightness setting all the way high same on Facebook stories. Idk if it's just a bug in the app. App would be perfect if those issues are fix and I would buy the premium after. Needs new update for this app

    I want to know more about the app, I formation like how it works or does adding short cup to home screen will consume any memory So far the app is smooth and has some very good features like the night mode really loving it, the problem I found was u cannot send messages when you open instagram Hope they devolop it, so that users prefer it over native apps Thank you 👍👍
