The app that helps you read or let go of your “saved for later” articles.
It's like the Marie Kondo of read-it-later apps.
FOR OVERWHELMED READERS.
With traditional read-it-later apps, you often end up wasting time scrolling and managing a long and daunting list of articles where you cannot tell anymore what is worth reading. Ultimately, you get backlog anxiety, you stop opening the app, and you have read nothing.
To solve this, Reading Queue only shows you the first article in your queue. You must read, archive, or delete it, and then you’ll see the next one. You can cheat a bit and snooze an article to push it to the back of the queue, but only three times per article.
LET GO OF WHAT YOU DON’T NEED TO READ.
Reading Queue encourages you to let go of articles you haven’t read for 30 days, and those you keep postponing reading.
UNINTERRUPTED READING EXPERIENCE.
While you are reading, the next article is preloaded in the background, so that it appears immediately once you’re done.
NEW STUFF IS NOT ALWAYS BETTER.
Your oldest saved articles are presented first so that they won’t be left forgotten at the bottom of the queue.
SAVE ARTICLES FROM ANYWHERE.
Save articles from any app and any web browser on your Mac, iPhone, and iPad.
This app includes extensions for Safari and the Share menu.

Reading Queue for iOS is available on the App Store.
FEELS AT HOME ON YOUR MAC.
As a native Mac app, Reading Queue is light, fast, and supports everything you expect: dark mode, toolbar customization, Touch Bar, infinite undo and redo, and the Share menu.
No sign up required, you can start using Reading Queue right away. Your queue and archive are stored encrypted in your private iCloud storage. It is also ad-free and does not track what you read. Please keep your personal data for yourself.

Ratings and Reviews
Simple = Brilliant
I’m an efficiency expert and a usability guru. I’ve traversed the sea of apps promising to help you stay on top of what you want to read. I’ve amassed lists in the hundreds of saved articles that I wanted to read. All have failed me until now.
Reading Queue’s magic sauce is it’s simple design that immediately brings you to the oldest saved article and forces an action- read it, snooze it (only 3 times), archive it, or delete it. This overcomes the user’s psychological problem or the paradox of freedom - having the freedom to make a choice (of what to read in a moment) is often what paralyzes us. When there’s so much information and things you want to read, you get overwhelmed by the decision. This app empowers the user to trust your original instinct that led to saving the article in the first place.
IT’S THE SIMPLEST APPS THAT ARE THE MOST BRILLIANT!
And Greg, the developer, is very responsive to feedback and continues to iterate and improve this iOS app, MacOS app, and browser extensions. SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT DEVELOPER!!
Private, Easy, and NO SUBSCRIPTION!
I have used Instapaper, Pocket, and Wallabag as various Read It Later services. This is the first one that I truly enjoy, and don't fell that I am selling my soul to use.
It’s boasts a beautiful, dark interface (by default!), iCloud Sync, and is easy to use. It also has an macOS version available on the App Store, also, for free.
This is a rare gem of an app. The developer, Greg (whose rest of the name I will not even attempt to write, as I will sure mess it up) has delivered to market, what an app **should** be. Simple, easy, **private**, and without the obnoxious subscription charges, so prevalent in todays apps.
If this app were to go to a pay/buy model **without** a subscription, I will still support this developer by purchasing it.
Developer Response ,
Wow, thank you so much for all those nice words!!
No feature rot here
This is INCREDIBLE! I've had issues with Picket/Instapaper/Safari/Etc. in the past in terms of adding way too much to my reading list, causing what the developer refers to as “Pocket bankruptcy”. This is exactly exactly the solution I've been looking for. It’s super lightweight, and the UX is very well done. It jumps you in, gets you started right away, and keeps you focused on the task: clearing out your reading list. Thanks so much for this!
Developer Response ,
My pleasure! Really glad the app resonates with your needs. Thank you so much for those kind words!!
