The internet is a massive source of valuable information. In fact, much of what we read now is from the internet. However, it could be quite a tedious chore to filter and manage the ones we regard as relevant with the myriad of information circulating on cyberspace.
Whether you spend time online for school, work or leisure, here are four smartphone applications you can try out to eliminate clutter and noise, and enhance your online reading experience.
This app is very handy for saving webpages and blog posts that you would want to revisit later on. You can add tags to manage the links. Once you have saved the link, you can go through its content straight from the app without having to load the original site, which saves you time and mobile data.
If you are an iPhone user, you can toggle the shortcut button to add links to Pocket with ease when browsing using Safari.
I have been using Feedly since Google Reader ceased to exist. In my opinion, this is the best RSS feed reader to date. Its intuitive interface, straightforward design and features make it the best replacement for Google Reader.
In addition to the usual social media sharing options, it has other applications such as Pocket and Evernote integrated in its system making it very easy for users to save and bookmark blogs.
Beating the thick-spined dictionaries on so many levels, the Dictionary.com app wipes out all your excuses not owning (and using) a dictionary. You can also choose to download the offline version so that you can quickly look up definitions even without mobile internet or WiFi access. Plus, it comes with a thesaurus too!
Evernote is the only note app you’ll ever need. It is actually more than an app for taking notes. You can add photos, lists, reminders, and audio files. Items in the app can be into notebooks so you can segregate the items you need for work and the ones for personal use.
These apps are available for download on iOS and Android, and can also be accessed via web.
