Currently, if I like the article, I usually mark it "starred" in GoogleReader. Two problems with that:

  1. It does not allow to categorize it.
  2. Sometimes I find an article not through GoogleReader, so there's no way to "star" it.

Basically, something like InstaPaper, but with categories and search would do the job. Any ideas of webapps available?


If you basically just want to save and categorise them (not a "read later" tool like Instapaper), I'd recommend Delicious for the job.

Use tags for categorisation. Delicious is pretty smart in suggesting tags for a page, based on both your tagging history and how others have tagged that page.

    I use Google Reader and Delicious all the time - your answer made me think of something: Is there a way to automatically save a page to delicious when I star it in Google Reader? I currently have a big disconnect between the two - I remember reading an interesting article but can't remember if I starred it in Google Reader or saved it with Delicious... – BrianH Nov 9 '10 at 15:24

    Hmm, if I don't recall wrong, with Reeder app for iPhone/iPad you can directly save Google Reader articles to Delicious. (I'm not 100% sure; have to check.) – Jonik Nov 9 '10 at 15:35

    @BrianH I use multiple Greasemonkey scripts to make GReader more user friendly. For your purposes, try this script: userscripts.org/scripts/show/39092 - It adds an "Add to Delicious" button at the bottom of the post. There are several similar scripts out there. – Traveling Tech Guy Nov 9 '10 at 15:39

    @BrianH Take a look at googlesystem.blogspot.com/2009/08/… It allows you to directly save an item from google reader to delicious. – David A. Nov 10 '10 at 2:18

    @Jonik Yep, Reeder does link to Delicious as well. I use 2 readers on my iPhone: Byline (primary) and MobileRSS (secondary). Byline does not support Delicious, but MobileRSS does! I've linked it already. I may have to replace Byline with Reeder now. – BrianH Nov 11 '10 at 2:15
