Read It Later Comes to Android

Read it Later has finally arrived on Android.  One of the most popular iOS news apps, RIL made the jump over to the good side today and can “do things its iOS siblings can only dream about” according to its developer.  As someone that cruises the internet for the latest and greatest news, I can’t even describe to you how amazing this news is.  

What is Read it Later?

Its name really gives it away.  Have you ever been floating around the vast wasteland of the blogworld and ran into something you just didn’t have time to fully read?  Read it Later lets you quickly save that article and then spread it to almost any piece of technology that you own for later viewing.  I use a Chrome extension called ChromeItLater that saves articles into my RIL account which is then automatically populated onto any of my devices that have the RIL app installed.  It’s pretty awesome.

Oh, and I should also point out that it integrates into the “share” functionality of almost every single Android browser including the stock and Dolphin.

Download Link ($.99)

And feel free to visit the Read it Later site to find extra plugins for your favorite browsers.

    I’m not knowing what the dif is btween this & Google Reader where I can star certain feeds. The offline ability to read is kinda nice but does that mean it stores that space on your phone?

    You guys don’t have Instapaper yet? This is a second rate rip off.

    I’ve been happy with Instapaper. Any reason to switch?

    Total Droid Life worthy. Not Android Life worth AT ALL!

      Let’s see, Dr. Droid owns the blog. That means he can post whatever his heart desires. Do you also complain when the New York Times publishes a story about California?

      • Mr.Joe

        Dr. Droid also owns Android life which hasn’t been updated since February 14th. It’s a sad day when a doctor leaves one of his creations to die.

        Also for what it’s worth I don’t read the New York Times. ;)

          Well Android Life is about devices that aren’t on Verizon’s network…and this is an app…soooo looks like the right place to me!

          • Stephen D

            Well I do see where he is coming from. Tim o tato and the guy who was supposed to run android life and a few others have vanished, and there’s been a ton of news on non-Verizon devices that isn’t being posted there.

          • Mr.Joe

            You’re shitting me right?

            There has been plenty of non verizon android related rumors and news since February 14th 2011.

            We all want Android Life. If you’re just going to leave it rot. At least have the humanity to end its life.

            This site covers general Android software news and Verizon devices. Not understanding the confusion here…

          • Guest

            so why not just merge the sites….you have enough slow news days
