After Twitter and Gmail, Read it Later is the application I use most on my phone and I'm completely addicted to it. If you haven't heard of the app before, Read it Later is a app that lets you save an article in an easy to read format so that you can, well, read it later.
The free version includes all the big features: A single reading list synced across all your devices (Computer, iOS, Android), Wireless downloads for offline viewing, and formatting articles in a clean, easy to read, "Text View" and the ability to change the font size and toggle "night mode" for easier reading in the dark.
Upgrading to Read it Later Pro ($2.99) unlocks additional features such as:
- View your entire list (No limits on the number of articles that can be viewed or downloaded)
- Search and Sort your list
- Currently Reading (View all open/unfinished articles)
- Rotation Lock
- Scroll through articles using the volume rocker
I've used Read it Later Pro since it first came to the market and it's easily one my favorite apps to recommend to people, and that was before they offered a free trial version. If you enjoy keeping up with the news on the go, give Read it Later a try. I think you'll like it.
