Every minute we aren’t occupied, whether it's waiting for the train, walking to work or even during meals, we constantly use our mobile devices to keep us busy. Many of us love surfing the Net and reading up on information that interest us.
However, there are moments when we need to stop reading halfway or lose the Internet connection, and in those instances we have to reload the site at another time that is more convenient.
Read It Later allows you to save these Web pages to read at a later time without the requirement of an Internet connection. You simply save the articles to your Read It Later list, eliminating the clutter of bookmarks and emails with links.
Users can create, modify and access a list from a computer and read it on their mobile devices or vice versa, as they are all tied together by a single account. It even remembers your scroll position in every article to make it easier for you to catch up from where you left off.
The content on the app provides a clean, easy reading experience, as it only shows the words, images, captions and videos from an article. The font, text size and other settings can be altered to suit your preferences.
The app downloads the complete Web page as well as the article view for reading offline. Users can also search, categorise and label the items on your list and archive all past readings.
Pros: Organises all your readings for on-the-go.
Cons: No full screen option for article reading.
Verdict: Great app that works without the need for mobile data.
