Use Read It Later to Save Content, Read Offline

Geek Tip: Save and Organize Content to Read Later

Even though I love Google Reader, it is far too easy to get overwhelmed by the number of unread items that show up in my feed. Seriously, even if I spent all day just reading blog posts, I don't think I'd be able to get to them all. This is why I love Read It Later, the Firefox plugin that allows you to mark items in your reader that you'd like to come back to. These stories are saved and accessible even when you're offline.

What I didn't realize was that there's also a mobile application to allow you to add things to your Read It Later list on the go. The free app has iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, and Pre applications that give you easy access to your saved content. In the latest, just-released update, Read It Later organizes saved headlines into a "Digest," grouping by category. This way, you're not presented with a long list of unorganized, unread items. While the add-on and applications do the sorting automatically, you are able to edit your preferences and add new categories and share your digest with others.
