    Teamly has turned out to be a really useful tool for me - having a list of outstanding jobs is always good - but to have it stored on the web now is great!!

    You know, I will address the ability to bookmarks content to web from the mobile app with developers and see if we can come up with something.

    As regarding the ads, I am afraid they will have to stay there for some time. That was the deal we had with the developers of the mobile app. We don't make any money of it. That being said, feedback taken.

    Ah. Ha. I figured out why InstaPaper hasn't been working on the web for me. You have to log in to your IPaper account first. It then lets me add content I wish to read later. That was a duh moment on me :)

    Here's a link to InstaPaper: http://www.instapaper.com/

    I use it from my iPhone. I send the things that interest me over to it. It's a wonderful way to keep myself organized. Once I've sent an article over to InstaPaper, I can then get back to read it, study on pc or file it. I would just love it if I could send MUO articles to InstaPaper from the MUO Mobile App. As it stands I can only favorite them. My work around was to load MUO on my Pulse Mini Reader. Here's a link to that:

    http://itunes.apple.com/us/app...

    As you know, I do most of my reading via my iPhone. I find myself steering away from MUO Mobile because it's too hard to stay organized from it. When I favorite an article, on MUO Mobile, the only way back to it is my phone. There just has to be a better way. If not InstaPaper, at least a way to access my favorites right here on MUO Web. I think the best solution is by far InstaPaper. Although, I'm not sure what I do from my phone works around the web. I need to check that out.

    The thing about InstaPaper that attracts people like me, is how much we read on so many different topics. All that reading needs to be organized for future reference. I got stay on top of game Man :)

    P.S. A little more food for thought. How about a choice on MUO Mobile? I'd pay to have ads removed. Many people would. We don't like popping, moving, jumping ads whilst trying to concentrate. It's hard enough being a Boomer with out that movement added to the mix. Lol :)
