Read it Later

Today’s app of the day is Read it Later.

Read it Later is a great app if you read a lot of news every day, but don’t have the time to delve as deep into every article as you may wish. If this rings a bell, then Read it Later is for you.

After installing, Read it Later incorporates itself into the sharing function on your android device and allows you to easily articles of your choosing from almost any android app. Read it Later also allows offline viewing, making it great if you have times in the day when you are out of reception.

I also appreciate the ability to install Read it Later on your PC (through a Chrome extension), allowing you to easily find articles that you started reading on your phone at a later date. This is great if particular articles have larger images, data heavy videos, or generally are more suited to exploring on a larger PC screen. Best of all, Read it Later syncs between all devices, so whether an article is shared on your PC, tablet or mobile, it will be available to be “read later”.

In the words of the developer:

One reading list, everywhere you are.

Used by over 3.5 million people worldwide.

Read It Later lets you save any web page or video on your phone, tablet, or browser to view later - even offline - in an easy-to-read interface. It automatically syncs your queue across all your devices (Android, iPhone/iPad, Firefox, Chrome) making sure your content is always ready to view on the go, in the air, and at your leisure.

New York Times, Business Week, and TechCrunch call it the "DVR for the web."


Save full articles and videos for viewing later. Downloads the complete web page for magazine-like offline reading (video viewing online only).

The unique Article View captures article text, images, captions and videos in a uniform, easy-to-read format no matter where the article is from. You can adjust the text size, font, alignment and darkness for night-time reading.

View and add articles or videos to your queue on any computer or mobile device. Save in any Android app with a share menu. Save directly from your computer with our browser extensions and bookmarklets found here:

You can search, sort, and even tag the items in your list. All of your read articles are archived so you can quickly dig up anything you read in the past. It remembers your scroll position so you can start reading exactly where you left off.

You’ll get some additional features like viewing your entire queue (no limits), easily search, sort, tag and archive content in queue, scroll with the volume rocker and a one touch rotation lock.

Wish - shopping made fun - and easy - and cheap!

These days sites like Amazon or eBay make buying and selling online quick and easy. Unfortunately, sometimes the sheer breadth of products available (everything on earth!) makes it difficult to impulse buy or get the same experience one haves when wandering around a shop or past windows. Luckily, apps now exist to replicate that experience.

The best of the lot is Wish - which has the tagline 'shopping made fun' which could not be more true! When opening the app there are lots of categories to choose from, allowing you to pick the type of products you want to browse and going from there. Buying and checking out is only ever a few clicks away and if you are not careful you will very quickly load up on more products than you need!

I've launched sites that help out with buying cheap gadgets in the past, and it was heavily inspired by apps such as Wish which really allow someone to sit back and take pleasure in the shopping experience again! Download Wish now!

Cosmic Cow

Today's app of the day is Cosmic Cow.

"Endless" games are very in vogue at the moment, whether it be endless running, endless jumping or endless flapping, there are plenty of ways to get unlimited, and challenging gaming fixes. That doesn't mean that there aren't great new games being created in the genre, with Cosmic Cow being one such example.

In essence, Cosmic Cow combines two great styles of game play, one being a side scrolling endless-type game, and the other being the classic side scrolling space ship shooter, popularised in numerous incarnations on 8 and 16 bit consoles of decades past. As a "cosmic cow" (can't help but love it!), the player has to navigate through space, shooting or dodging asteroids and other attacking spaceships. The cow can collect a variety of objects to earn points - though mainly interesting foods that just happen to be floating through space. As points are accumulated, the player can also collect coins to spend on a v…
