What read-it-later app do you use?

I've noticed I no longer use Pocket, but instead just send a link to myself via Telegram, so I have one flow of links surrounded by any additional info I want to add. An obvious disadvantage of this approach is that a common messenger lacks many features which apps like Pocket have. I'm looking for a simple chat-like app with features of Pocket e.g. content-based search and auto tags. Is there something like this? What do you use for saving links?

    What about Evernote? Love this tool!

      Absolutely love Evernote. Use it for work and personal use and that is easy with the ability to make notebooks. Tags are super helpful as is annotating a document or editing a picture with Skitch. Makes my life easier and more organized!

    I love the sync feature which is great when using multi devices for read later, like the chrome extension which you can add to your pocket and see instantly from your app.

    Great for read-it-later feature, but even greater for just archiving bookmarks of blog posts, articles, etc while easy to find search and find them again months later. Great tagging system and you can see which other users saved and tagged the same post.

    Works great on desktop, which syncs to the ios app so I can catch up when I'm commuting. Clean, simple and inexpensive subscription.

    Opera Touch

    The fast, new browser with Flow

    Opera Flow is amazing for sharing content between PC and smartphone.

      I love how Opera is constantly trying new things. Opera Touch is honestly great for one handed usage but it lacks:

      * bookmark managing

      * background page loading (so it's really slow to switch to that new tab you opened in the background 3 minutes ago)

      and the tab management system is a bit confusing...

      Despite that it's one of the icons on my home screen and I certainly recommend it!

    Inbox by Google

    Next generation inbox

    The reason why I use this is I already use it for email, it's free and I don't need categorisation or anything like that.
    • I pretty much like all things Google, but Inbox just isn't for me. I much prefer good old fashioned Gmail on my iPhone. The way Inbox sorts my emails doesn't always make sense to me, and I suppose I'd rather sort it myself. There are definitely better email apps out there. I know because I've tried a bunch of them.

    • I like & hate inbox for the same features.

      It´s the first time my Mailbox feels sorted and clean. That said Inbox dicards eamils as unimportant, doesn't show notifications for all emails and shows how much it knows about my friends, travel agrangements and so on.

      I do think a manual hosted version would be really great but I doubt we will see something soon.

      In the end its a Google Product which means no updates and in 2 years we get the next version of it. It lacks a lot of things you can't do with it. For instance multiple Accounts, S/MIME encryption and ways to highlight a lot more.

    Clipboard history manager for your Mac

    Mason Lawlor
    Mason Lawlorfounder, · Written
    I think this is the quickest, simplest, easiest solution. Just copy the link, then organize it under a category. Syncs across devices. Does way more than just bookmarking as well. I use it for saving different scripts commonly run in the command line, you could use it for sales scripts on chats, files and resources, etc.
    • Mike Coutermarsh

      I set clipboard history to unlimited and can quickly search/find old code snippets. If I ever need to remember something, I just copy it then can find it later.

      I've used a quite a few of these and Paste is by far my favorite.

    • Simon Bromberg

      I rarely shell out money for any kind of software, but while there are great free alternatives (e.g. Flycut), I haven't seen anything close to the performance / usability / UI in Paste. For $10, great deal.
