Read It Later, the nifty service that allows you to store blog posts, articles and web pages to read at a later date, has announced the availability of an iPad (s aapl) app, which includes the debut of a “Digest” view, a newspaper-like display of your saved articles and support for video.

Digest works by automatically grouping your saved articles into topics. You can elect to choose your topics from a suggested list based on the articles that you’ve saved, our define your own, resulting in a dynamic, newspaper-like display organized around the topics in which you’re interested.

Like the iPhone app, Read It later for the iPad is available in both Free and $4.99 Pro flavors (see here for a comparison of the two), while the Digest service is a onetime $5 upgrade to existing accounts. The Digest upgrade will also work on the iPhone apps, although it seems to me to be particularly suited for the iPad.

Let us know what you think of the new Read It Later iPad app in the comments.

  1. I haven’t tried Digest yet, but Read It Later Pro is perfectly suited to the iPad. As I work at my desk throughout the day, I quite often find things I want to look at later. I slap a RiL tag on it in my browser and move on. At night, I can pick up my iPad, curl up on the couch with it and a cup of tea, and fire up the app. It syncs up fast, and I can read all I want either in RiL text-only mode or hop over to Safari to be able to click through on related links. Hands down my favourite productivity app at the moment.
