"Your own queue of pending reading on the cloud"

Read It Later allows you to save webpages, tweets, videos, links even offline

The pro version of Read It Later improves productivity by adding interesting features: preview of attached pictures in articles, tap to save bookmarklet, full screen reader, unread counter among other.

This is a wonderful idea. How many times did you send links/webpages and any other resource to your e-mail (or did bookmark them) in order to read them later? I've made it that way thousands of times. For those who want to watch, read or be up-to-date but who're always in a rush, Read It Later comes up as a revolutionary tool. And, nevertheless, it's a really simple app. Let's zoom in it.

First off, you need to sign up, from the webpage www.readitlaterlist.com or from the app. Just need a username, password and e-mail. Then you'll have your Read It Later profile, that basically is a list of pending readings. How to add resources to that list? Easy. Once the app is installed in your Android, you just need to use the default "Share" option and then choose "Add to Read It Later" on the "Share via" pop-up windows. No matter what it is: webpage, video, tweet, Facebook post, link, e-mail,... All these resources will be added to your queue and it will be accessible from a browser (there are also Read It Later desktop version, Chrome plugins, Mozilla add-on,...).

This way you can add items to your pending list from a computer, browser or mobile device, and check them from that devices too. You can even send items and read them offline. 130+ apps support Read It Later.

Stay organized, you can search, sort or even tag the items in your list. All your read articles are archived, or can be deleted by you.

Read It Later is set in a cool layout, user-friendly interface. It's intuitive, so you get the hang of it immediately. In conclusion, Read It Later belongs to that type of apps that makes our life easier. Congratulations to the developers.
