If you've already installed ReadNow and want to update to ReadLater you need to follow the MU link to the App Store and click the "Update" link in the top bar. This will then move all apps bought from the Store needing updates to a separate section where you can click an update button and have the app updated. Be sure the app is closed before you try this. BTW, as of this post the updater will *not* change the name of the app itself from ReadNow to ReadLater. Only the version number and labels in the prefs and pull down menus will change.

The 1.x versions forced you to choose EITHER Read It Later OR Instapaper accounts logged in. You couldn't have both active. So, for me it was a near miss, and I didn't use it.

This 2.x update allows you to have BOTH accounts active. It's now permanently in my dock.

What a great app: clear, simple, capable, useful,...exactly what I wanted. I love it!

With Read Later's demise, I'm now happily settled in with ReadKit, which supports a truckload of accounts. Check it out:

This is mentioned in the requirements above, but be aware that if you use Instapaper you will need to have a $1 per month subscribers account. This is connected to the API requirements for external applications using Instapaper.

I'm curious how that works. I got the Instapaper app on iOS and that works allright (offline reading etc) without having a $1/month subscription. Maybe it's not so confusing after all, since the app is made by Instapaper. :/

This has been a great app since its beginnings. The ability to sync saved bookmarks across different devices is priceless. The latest version ads several nice features that make the $4 totally worth it. It is stable and responsive under both 10.6.8 and 10.7. Customer service from the developer himself is very good and blazing fast, something to value with Mac AppStore purchases. A minor (temporary) drawback (hence the 4stars) from version 0.5 is that sorting has to be done from the app's preferences, rather that form the pop-down menubar window. I contacted the developer, who clarified this will be included in the near future, along with other nice additions on the next major version. I'm totally happy with it.

I've been looking for a way Safari could do this, so this little app suits me fine, even though it's not Safari based and sits in the menu bar.

It does that very well and clearly. It's stable so far.

There is no documentation for this app.
The app is not intuitive; it desperately needs documentation.
There is no apparent way to e-mail the developer

Click the Visit Developer's Website Link that is up top near the button you pressed to download the app. Follow the webpage which actually has a discussion board at the bottom of the page your directed to but if you want an email address/twitter account/github account access to the dev then just click the "About" button at the top.

Dev clearly states it is a new app, plus the 0.21 version number should give a hint that it is no where near considered a final app. The webpage will also reiterate this.

I gotta say, dev does give you a lot of information and plenty of ways for you to access him if you wish and the app is pretty solid in features for being an alpha/beta version. It has automatic updates, it has global shortcuts for adding or viewing, actually pretty complete for a 0.21 app.

All in all... I could not disagree with you more. Follow two links and you get everything you want/complained you could not access.
There are currently no troubleshooting comments. If you are experiencing a problem with this app, please post a comment.
