Since 2019, Abyss has been the easiest and safest way to save links so you can read them later. Think of it as a supercharged bookmark manager!
Every link that you save will be available to you on your iPhone, iPad and Mac, via iCloud sync. Abyss doesn't track you in any way nor display annoying ads. It's just you and your links, forever.
What makes Abyss unique compared to other services like Pocket, Instapaper or Pinboard is the privacy. On all those services, you have to create an account and all your links are stored in somebody else's server. With Abyss, your data is stored on your iCloud account, therefore only you have access to it. Your data is never sent to any external servers, which means that nobody can use your saved links to track you in any way.
- Enabled the import from Abyss. Now you can export & import all your data from and to Abyss.
- Improved the user interface while the import is in progress.
- Added an option to delete all your data in Settings > Advanced Options > Delete All Data.
- Added haptic feedback to some UI elements.
- Fixed an issue on macOS that was preventing pasting URLs copied from Abyss to other apps.
Ratings and Reviews
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.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the kind words!
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
