Why read something now, when you can simply save it for later? I am always running across neat articles or reviews I want to read more in-depth, but I don’t have the time. That is where a service and add-on like Read it Later comes in handy.
The add-on in question will save pages for you to read later with just one click. When you have the time to check it out, you can access your Read it Later list from any computer or phone. As you save things, it syncs it to your profile on the Read it Later website.
Some of the features of the Firefox add-on include:
- Save pages to a reading list to read when you have time.
- Offline reading mode lets you read the items you’ve saved for later on the plane, train, or anywhere without an internet connection.
- Sync your list to all of your computers, at work or home.
- Sync your list to Read It Later apps for iPhone, iPod, iPad, Android and more.
- After reading, bookmark pages on your preferred bookmarking service or share them with friends.
- Click to Save Mode lets you quickly batch a reading list just by clicking on interesting links.
- Text view strips away images, ads, and layout from articles and presents them in an easy to consume way.
Personally, I have been using Instapaper, for some time, to get this same task done. However, Read it Later does offer a little more functionality – so I might have to switch my “reading list/bookmark saver” down the road.
