Read It Later App for Windows Phone


If you are using Read It Later on your PC or iPhone, you are familiar with the service which basically marks pages for later (or offline) reading and saves them in your list.

LateReader is a Windows Phone client for the Read It Later service which allows you to login to your account, view and manage your reading list as well as add more pages. It’s the only Windows Phone client for Read It Later that I know about and it’s currently on version 0.1, with lots of features (quote below) but with also a very bold to do list we are hoping to see done in the future:

Late Reader v0.1.0

– C# API wrapper for RIL web based API

– Login

– Signup

– Reading List UI

– Page Text rendering (I am doing this from scratch as the .NET WebBrowser component seems to be unusable for me)

– Currently Reading (Remembers what you were reading last time)

– Syncing with the RIL server

– Storing the list and Page Texts for offline viewing

– favicon image display in reading list

– Mark as Read/Unread? functionality in the reading list

– Search in reading list

– Sorting in reading list

– Kinetic scrolling in Page Text display

– Currently reading context menu

– fontsize: tiny, small, normal, large, huge

– show more/less (depending on the current mode),

– show full in browser

– update pagetext (download again)

– Threaded syncing

– Use of codepages in Currently Reading view

– Get only list as an option

– Show whether pagetext is available with an icon

– Let the user mark items for downloading with the next sync

– By default do not download READ item page text

– Make this an option

reading list does not update after a sync (at least the sorting is not applied)

currently reading mode (less/more) is not stored

When no text is available in Currently Reading Panel a message indicating less mode is shown, but sometimes the same thing happens in more mode as well

Better rendering of PRE/CODE tags

– Better rendering of long words (words longer than a line should be splitted)

Every form is displayed as a separate app in task managers, we should have only one item instead

Some items are displayed twice in All view (maybe read items?)

max mode of main form is sometimes hindered with the title bar (especially after a long running sync operation)
