Use Delicious? Got an iPhone? You need this app

Read LaterRead Later is an app that lets you save web pages on your iPhone/iPod for offline reading.  Not the first app to do that?  Well it’s integrated with delicious.com so any bookmarks you tag with a to_read tag (or any tag of your choice) are detected by the app and downloaded for offline reading.

And when you’re finished reading the article on your iPhone, hitting the ‘mark as read’ button sends a request to delicious and your read_later tag is removed.  Nice, simple and clean.  And currently free in the AppStore.

The articles are a pleasure to read on the iPhone.  All flashing ads, graphics and irrelevant distractions are removed for you.  You just get the cleaned text for easy reading.  The app’s description says it best:

  • All web pages are cleaned and stripped of irrelevant adverts for easy reading on the iPhone.
  • Store hundreds of  webpages on your iPhone
  • Read Later remembers which article your were last reading
  • Sync your iPhone with your Delicious account to get our latest bookmarks

Apparently there are currently 1.5m “to_read” and similar tags on delicious so there must be a lot of folks using this system to flag articles for later reading.  Check it out.
