TextOnly If you're addicted to reading articles on the Web but can't stand the skyhigh data costs, then TextOnly may be for you. The new Android app is a browser that displays only text while stripping out ads, photos, video and other content that slows down your Internet connection. The app is super-fast--we entered the New York Times into the URL field and a list of articles was pulled up within a matter of seconds. A few downsides: The main page which displayed all of the articles had a black background that made it a bit jarring to read. The app also crashed on us several times when we tried to use it.
