If you ever find yourself in the middle of reading something interesting/important on the web but d0 not have time, Instapaper will be helpful. When you find something that you want to read but don’t have the time, just click on the Read Later button. Come back when you have the time, or read it from your iPhone, mobile device or even a Kindle on the road.
Instapaper is one of the easiest web tools to setup:
- Browse to Instapaper.com/extras
- Drag the Read Later icon to your bookmarks bar.
- That’s it.
They offer a very popular iPhone/iPad app by the same name. It converts your saved pages into a mobile optimized text view for easy reading. You also receive a unique email address that allows you to email links or long email messages or newsletters directly to your Instapaper account. Dozens of iPhone/iPad apps support sending pages directly to Instapaper including Twitter, Hootsuite and my new favorite Flipboard.
Before Instapaper, I would just add it the site I was reading to my bookmarks but that list becomes useless when you have hundreds of bookmarks collected. Instapaper has provided an easy, quick and free solution that allows me to go back and read information that I might not have been able to find in the past.
Give it a try, I think you will enjoy it.
