Saving webpages to read later
I’m going to admit that I can get terribly side-tracked by shiny little articles that peak my interest while I’m researching something else / meandering about online / reading daily emails. Worrying about how many hours a week I lose to aimlessly reading while I’m supposed to be doing something else, I decided to get organised and productive. I thought, ‘There must be a service that allows me to save articles to read later, synced to any device I choose?’ And there is.
Last week I started using Pocket. Recommended to me by this great little article http://www.howtogeek.com/212647/the-best-ways-to-save-webpages-to-read-later/
It allows you to save all of your content to one place to read later. You don’t even need wifi as, once synced, you can review articles offline – perfect for my needs while trapped on the Piccadilly Line each morning.
I downloaded the app to my phone and followed simple instructions to ensure I could save articles from Safari and Twitter (where I often view content). I then also added the Chrome extension to my PC at home. As my work PC is locked down and I can’t add the chrome extension there, I’ve been using the simple email tool – you just past the URL into an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and it saves it to your reading list.
So after my first week my list is looking well-stocked and I realised that it would also really help with compiling bibliographies for presentations at work and referencing stats and trends from studies I’ve read. It’s been a really useful tool.
There is a simple export function in ‘Options’ which allows you to export all of the original URLs to an HTML file, which you can then share with co-workers or reference where required. (You can also share within Pocket, but that wouldn’t cut at my work). So here’s what I’ve been reading this week.
