Read Later in Feedbin

By admin
I 🩵

Feedbin
PERSON

and there’s a lot of features I can’t shut up about. Like reading RSS feeds on

a lazy Sunday
DATE

. Or the feed of likes feature myself and a handful of others use to run a small clandestine social sharing network over

RSS
ORG

. Or how I funnel email newsletters through

Feedbin
PERSON

and read them on my own damn time. But

one
CARDINAL

feature I’m ashamed I didn’t know existed until

this week
DATE

was the “Send to

Feedbin
PERSON

” feature, à la Pocket or Instapaper.

Now when I come across an article during

my day
DATE

that I don’t have time to read, I can “Send to

Feedbin
PERSON

” and it will appear under a new “Pages” category towards the top of the sidebar navigation. Here’s how to get it setup on your machine(s):

Send to

Feedbin
PERSON

for iOS

If you install the

Feedbin
PERSON

app on

iOS/iPadOS
ORG

, a brand new “Send to

Feedbin
PERSON

” action will show up near the bottom of the

Share Actions
ORG

panel. Tapping “Send to

Feedbin
PERSON

” will do what it says on the tin.


Worth
PERSON

noting: You can still use whatever RSS reader you want, but need the

Feedbin
PERSON

app for

the Share Action
ORG

. As seen in the screenshot,

Reeder
ORG

has a “

Read Later
WORK_OF_ART

” action, but I get an “Unable to save item” error when I try it. You may have better luck.


Bookmarklet
ORG

For everywhere else non-iOS (like your desktop browser) there’s a bookmarklet you can install under the Sources > Pages section of the

Feedbin
PERSON

settings screen. Drag the link to your bookmarks bar.

My current browser (Arc) doesn’t support bookmarklets, so I created a

Chrome
ORG

extension using

Peter Legierski
PERSON

’s

Convert
PERSON

bookmarklet to

Chrome
ORG

extension tool. I could create a downloadable Add to

Feedbin
PERSON

extension… but that sounds like work. It would be nice if

Feedbin macOS
PERSON

app added

the Share Action
ORG

like the iOS apps, but the custom bookmarklet→extension workaround works fine.

Happy RSS’ing

There’s a really simple syndication pleasure in sending the articles that come across my periphery over to

RSS
ORG

reader rather than keeping

30
CARDINAL

tabs open all the time. All my reading in

one
CARDINAL

place™. I love your ideas and want to read them, but I’ll wait until I have more time to pay attention. Warm and dry away from the algorithmic rivers of endless content, I’m back to reading at my leisure. I’m reclaiming my time. I’m rewilding my attention. This is freedom, freedom from the algorithm.
