I like my Android phone a lot. I almost always use it to read tweets, email and follow blogs on Google Reader. As good as the 4 inch Super AMOLED screen is, sometimes I like to read longer articles on my PC. I usually send an email to myself using the share feature most apps in Android have. It works but is kind of cumbersome. I was looking for apps to share links to sites like Read It Later or InstaPaper.  They did not have good support for Android. Read It Later had a few third party apps using their API but they did not do exactly what I wanted. So I created my own App.

Droid Save is a tool to save links to Read It Later.

Version 1.1
1. Better site title fetching of mobile/desktop versions of sites shared.


1. Shows up in the share actions when you share something from your twitter client, browser…

2. When you select “Droid Save”, the first time it prompts for the Read It Later credentials.

3. Once your credentials are validated and on subsequent uses it will either save the URL without further prompts or show a list of URLs if the shared text has multiple URLs. Selecting one saves it to Read It Later.

    Very cool App
    But when i use it with “Tweetdeck” and i want to save a facebook-Link, there´s later only the Start-URL “facebook.com” in the ReaditLater-List. Can you fix this?

    I’ve been using this great app for while now without problems. However, i’ve noticed that since twitter switched their own url shortner on, all I get in my read it later list when saving tweets with links in … is a bunch of non-descript urls (t.co).

    Not sure if this is a problem with RIL or droid save ?
