If you are someone who travels frequently, then you know how hard it is to access information on the go. It becomes more difficult when you get no Wifi, and the global internet plans are touching the sky. We are living in an internet world where people access almost everything on the internet, whether it is catching up with old friends, or just informing someone about your coming. You need internet in almost everything in life. And if you are an avid reader, you can get frustrated when you don’t get to read anything. That’s when you turn to offline reading, because that’s the only option left.
The perfect solution for your problem and more over it is free to use. You can use it anywhere, it doesn’t matter whether you are using a mobile phone or a computer, you can save the webpage that you will read later, and boom! It becomes available on all your other devices.
It is available as a Chrome addon. And the good thing about ReadIt is it saves pure content without any ads and other content that is not related. Moreover, if you want to save a particular area of a webpage, or particular paragraph of content, you can do that too.
To make the content available on all your devices, you will have to sync it with the Google account and allow it. It will then save the content on the Cloud, and from there you can access it on any device.
Once you install this add-on, you will notice that an extra icon is added at the end of the address bar. From there you can easily save all the content you want. Problem solved; now go ahead and start saving all your favorite content.
If you are someone who is always looking to save videos (especially You Tube videos), Spool is here for you. It goes one step ahead and allows you to save almost anything from the internet, ranging from content, to songs and videos; you can save almost everything you want.
As of now, it is available in the beta phase only, and because of that, they only allow people with an invite. But you can take another route and get into it, by registering through your Face book profile.
Spool is also available for Android and iOS, and you may download it from their respective stores.
Another awesome service that allows you to read offline. But that’s not all; it is integrated with many different apps such as Flip board and Pulse. Also, people contribute by making their own apps and integrating it with this.
You will have to start the traditional way by registering an account. If you use it on a mobile phone, all tools necessary will have to be downloaded. Also, if you want to use it on a computer, you can only do so if you have Fire fox.
If you don’t like Fire fox, Readability is at your service. It is also available to download for iOS and Android. Again, you will have to start the traditional way by registering an account, and after that you can download everything from Apps Page.
Similar to Read It Later, Readability can also be integrated with other apps too.
This is the most famous app that is used for taking notes or scheduling your day. But did you know that you can save web pages too? Yes, that’s right, you can do that too. All you have to do is download Evernote Clipper or the clearly and you can easily save content without any issues.
But, if you are new to Evernote, here’s an introduction for you. It is an app that is most famous for taking notes and scheduling tasks, but few people know that it can also be used to save webpages. All you have to do is, register an account on their website, and then download the Clipper or Clearly (as mentioned above) to start saving web pages for reading offline.
So, I just saved your problem of reading content offline. Now that you have all these alternatives, let me know how you are planning to use each one of them. If you are going to use only one, let me know why.
