User comments on Read Later Fast:

  • PC World: ““Falling under the “devastatingly useful but simple” category, Read Later Fast does exactly what its name suggests.”
  • This is one of the best apps on Chrome. But not only can you save ANY page to read later, you can also view them offline! This is great when you need to view things and your internet is down. I have a Wikipedia page that I kept a few weeks ago and I can still view the whole article with all of the pictures!
  • Great app and extremely useful. Helped me cut down on the 30 plus tabs I usually have open.
  • One of the most useful apps for me. I used to keep tens of references to interesting web pages in tabs for months, so my tabs were cluttered. Not anymore.
  • These diigo apps are amazing. Finally I can start reading on my work mac, pick it up at home on my pc and finish on my iPad.
