Abyss is the easiest way to store links for later reading. Every link that you store will be available to you on your iPhone, iPad and Mac, forever. We don't require you to log in on any service because we're storing all your data in iCloud. This means that only you have access to it.

Main features:

- Sync between devices (iPhone, iPad, Mac) using your personal iCloud.
- Privacy first. Your data belongs to you, it will never be sent to any external server.
- Export your data to keep a backup or move to another service. Your data is yours.

- Powerful tagging system.
- Instant search on your entire library.
- Store any link from any app by using the Share Sheet.
- Add notes to links. Never again forget why you saved that link.
- Swipe actions to quickly mark links as favorite or archive them.
- Contextual menus to perform advanced operations on your links.

- Batch updates for your entire archive.
- Display the number of unread items as the App Icon badge.
- Pocket import: Bring all your stored links from Pocket to Abyss.
- Dark Mode. You can choose to override the system theme with your preferred one.

Simple and yet exactly what’s been missing from the App Store!

Hard to believe this is one of the ONLY free cross-platform read it later/pinboard alternatives. I am very happy I found this app and thank you for creating it and sharing it.
If anybody else is like me and finds it a bit outrageous to pay for saving your own links to retrieve later; and you don't want to be pigeon-holed into using Safari; AND you want to actually be able to use iOS share sheet to quickly stash links then this is the app for you.
The only thing that I’d love to see is the ability to quickly add a tag from the context menu on iPhone and iOS instead of needing to wait the entire item. Other than that.. privacy matters more to me so I’m still a fan.

Great app, great developer

This is a no-nonsense read-later app! Does what I want it to do without unnecessary fluff, tracking, or invasions of privacy. Developer was very responsive about future updates and enhancements. Looking forward to seeing more from them!

Update: still 5 stars! The developer continues to add requested features! Most recently, the ability to save offline. This elevates this app to the premier ‘read later’ app.

Straightforward and lightweight

I was looking for a simple read later app without any of that recommendation nonesense. Abyss is no frills and I appreicate the sync via iCloud doesn't require me to create an account to access my links across iOS/iPadOS/macOS. The in-app purchase is also a reasonable price for reasonable features that doesn't ever nag you
