Quiet Read

By bambooapps

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


Quiet Read is Mac OS X application that lets you save any link for later.

Sometimes, when I am browsing the web, I want to store a link for later. There are note taking applications and everything-buckets to do that, but I wanted something light and simple. Simple as dragging a link to Quiet Read to store it.

But that's not all, there's much more you can do with your links:

Send links to Instapaper.
Send links to Read It Later.
Send links to Delicious.
Send links to Pinboard.
Shorten links.
Global shortcut.
Link list search and filter.
Two separate listings: Inbox and Archive.
Multiple link selection.
Extended sorting options.
Export to CSV.
Export to HTML.
MobileMe syncing.

Quiet Read is available in English, Traditional Chinese, Polish, Greek, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Dutch, Russian and Spanish.

What's New in Version 1.7.2

- New contextual menu in the dock icon.
- Fixes a bug in the "Move to Archive".
- Works better with third party apps.
- Fixes a bug in the Spanish localization that prevents MobileMe sync.

Customer Reviews

Definitely not worth $9.99

There are free web browser plugins that offer vastly more features than this app. It merely sends links. Utterly a waste.

You need to be clear that it doesn't sync

For a $10 app that works with ReadItLater and Insta, most people are going to assume there is syncing.

Why? Because that's what 99% of other apps provide.

I spent 20 minutes trying to figure out how to get it to sync.

The only way I found out was a @bambaooapps tweet that said "no, it won't. QR does not sync with Instapaper, it just sends links to the service"

If you just change the description and BE CLEAR that there isn't syncing, I'll raise the number of stars of this review.

But until you offer syncing, I'll be using another app.
