    It needs a connection to open the articles. Does not sync content to be read offline.

    the official app, crashes, wont download, even though it says it is syncing, and is generally not good, this works. thanks for keeping it alive even though there is an official app

    For some reason I can't save anything to ReadIt using the share command but the sync and read functions work well. If the send to worked this would be excellent.

    What happened?
    Yesterday's update removed Share Via functionality. That was what made this app great.
