The success of the Apple iPad since its launch has been nothing short of phenomenal. When Apple CEO Steve Jobs unveiled the ipad, the widely and wildly anticipated tablet-style computer that he called “a truely magical and revolutionary product”:
“What this device does is extraordinary,” Jobs said. “It is the best browsing experience you’ve ever had. … It’s unbelievably great … way better than a laptop. Way better than a smartphone.”
For those iPad users who take reading seriously, you should check out “Readict (Pro)” ~ a new iPad RSS reader. It is an iPad reading app that integrates highlighter and “read later” functionalities to provide efficient and effective reading experience.
Here are some key features:
Customize RSS Feeds ~ from popular sources, Google Reader, Twitter favorites, etc
Annotate Article ~ add highlighter and sticky note for more effective reading
Download to Read Later ~ download links for fast reading later, without interrupting your flow
Looking for a great alternative to Safari on iPad? Miss Chrome on iPad? Introducing “iChromy” ~ Chrome-style web browser on iPad that brings cool functionalities like Tabs on top, Ominibox, Offline Reading List, etc to the platform:
Tabs on top
It’s very easy to open, switch and close tabs
Extra space for content
The address bar will be hidden automatically when you scroll down the page, so you will get extra screen space for content. To show the address bar, just tap the tab again.
Type search keywords or URL in one box.
Open link in new tab
Long press a link and choose different open link options.
Offline reading list
One-click to save a page to the Offline Reading List, one-click to remove. Long-press a link to add to Offline Reading List without opening the link. Offline Reading List is a great way to have pages later, whether offline or online.
Share to different places
Share a page to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Diigo, Instapaper etc.
Search from context menu directly.
In addition to features, we have made a great deal of effort to make iChromy fast! Multiple tab browsers on iPad are often slow and prone to crash due to the memory issue. iChromy reloads tabs dynamically and smartly, so it feels fast even with multiple tabs.
iChromy V1.0 is now available in the App Store for free download >> Please go check it out, tweet / blog about it and share with your friends! Thanks!
As Mozilla is gearing up to public release of Firefox 4, Diigo is proud to announce the release of three new Firefox 4 extensions, all ported from Diigo’s popular Chrome Apps. Joel Liu, product manager at Diigo Inc, commented: “Firefox 4 provides a significantly improved development platform, and much better user experience. We are thrilled to bring our popular apps onto this platform, getting ready for its public launch soon.“
All these three apps/extensions are designed to focus on a single-function to deliver the best-of-breed functionality, as well as fool-proof usability. Though still in beta, and not yet fully integrated with Diigo.com, they have already received rave reviews from both the press and users.
The Chrome versions of these apps were released three months ago and have already become some of the most popular and highest rated apps in Chrome Web Store, specifically,
This is the best app. I’ve been looking for a note app like it for quite some time. Nothing quite cut the cake – except this.
Really useful! Especially when I’m doing research for a project.
I love this app so much. I move notes from Windows to Linux to Android and to my CR-48. So simple and it just works.
Awesome app, extremely useful, it the hub of all my notes, quickly accessible and saved to cloud
Great simple quick note tool that can sync across mobile devices and web! highly recommended for organizing your life!
Great way to take quick notes without having to open a word processor or some other program. My browser is always open and with 2 clicks I have a new tab and a note pad to type on! Wonderful for taking notes in meetings, capturing those spur of the moment ideas, etc.
It’s great. I’m saving trees by using a whole of a lot less post-its.
Awesome truly HTML 5 app. You guys are the benchmark for web apps. Great work folks!
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.
Version 184.108.40.206 update

Since the “Save Favorite Tweets” feature roll-out, we have received great response. Many have commented how cool this is
With different Diigo tiered account plans, we have made the following update to make this feature even more readily available for all users to enjoy and try it out:
* Premium account: when you set it up, all your existing favorite tweets will be fetched and saved to Diigo. Afterward, our system will then process automatic saving on a daily basis. Best of all, any tweets with links, their webpages will also be cached, so you can always access the archived pages. To learn more about Diigo caching service, please check out the cache help tip >>
* Basic, Education & Free accounts: this feature is now available to all users, except only the first page of your favorite tweets will be saved on a daily basis. (note: for most Twitter users, this should be sufficient since only very few people would mark more than 20 Twitter favorites and go beyond the 1st page per day.) Furthermore, for Basic accounts, links in the saved tweets will be cached, but caching isn’t available for Free / Education Basic accounts.
BTW, for those who are not too familiar with Twitter’s “Favorites” feature yet, it’s an easy way for you to mark a tweet as a favorite within your Twitter account by simply clicking the yellow star. Now with the Diigo’s “Save Favorite Tweets” to auto-save them in your Diigo library, they are a super combo together!
Diigo team continues to innovate to make Diigo better and better. If you have suggestion or feature that you’d love us to consider, make sure to share your feedback with us in our UserVoice forums or email us.
