We think the “read later” experience is core to the news consumption experience. Many times you’ll see an article that you want to read later, but don’t have the time and want to come back to it. Skimming twitter on the train and find a few articles you want to read when you get in to the office? Have 10 tabs open in your browser at the end of the day and want to read them on the iPad when you get home?
There are plenty of apps in the “read later” space that offer this as stand alone functionality. Apple has even stepped in to offer “read later” functionality in Safari for iOS 5. We think “read later” should part of the experience where you do most of your news consumption, so we’ve built it in to News.me.
Grab the News.me read later bookmarklet (we’re calling it “+News.me”) from www.news.me/tools and install it in your browser. You can also install the bookmarklet in Safari on your iPad or iPhone. Once you have it installed, start bookmarking articles that you’d like to read later in the news.me iPad app or on the News.me website.
Your Read Later list in News.me
We’ve had read later support in the iPad app from day 1. You can bookmark any story from the article page
or in the stream (swipe to reveal the bookmark option).
Then, to access your bookmarked stories, click on the bookmark icon
You can now access your read later list on news.me at http://www.news.me/readlater
This is a feature that we love. You can add a story from any Twitter application to your News.me read later list by using Twitter favorites. First, enable the “Import Twitter Favorites” setting in News.me - you can do this from the News.me settings page on our site or in the iPad application. After you’ve enable this, you can favorite any tweet (with a link!) and we’ll import the story in to your News.me read later list.
We hope you enjoy!
