Have you ever been in the middle of reading a really amazing article only to have to run out? This can be frustrating and annoying. Thankfully,has the solution. Their awesome service takes any article on the Internet and converts it to a beautiful PDF file for later reading. Each day all the articles saved in your queue are emailed to you as a handy little magazine that you can read on at your own leisure.
Maybe your problem isn’t that you ran out of time in the middle of an article. Maybe you just want a more elegant way to have things that interest you sent in a neat little package? Well, fear not, because the articles sent through Magazinify look beautiful and are easy to read. Any device that can view a PDF file can check out the articles, and let’s be real, what kind of device can’t view PDFs? All the articles sent even have all the ads removed, so you are treated to a nice clean viewing experience.
Setting up Magazinify is a snap. Start by heading over to thewebsite. On the top right corner there is a link to sign up. You can choose to either make a new account, or log in with your already existing Facebook account. I chose the latter simply because it was easier, but if you do not feel comfortable linking your Facebook account, making a separate Magazinify account only takes a few seconds.
Once you have an account, the dashboard will pop up telling you to copy the handy bookmarklet into your address bar. As soon as you have that stored you will be all ready to start saving articles.
Once you have the bookmarklet in your browser simply choose any article you find interesting and click the bookmarklet button. An alert will pop up on the screen letting you know that the article is in your queue. Head over to the website and you will see the article nestled comfortably in your digest queue.
By default, the program will send you a digest of your articles once a day, but you can change that setting to send the digest once a week or once a month if you prefer. Obviously, how often you use the app and how time sensitive the materials you read are would decide which time frame is right for you. If you use the app only 2 or 3 times a month, sending daily digests would be overkill.
As you progress throughout the day, when you see an article that you want to check out later, just click the button, and you will be surprised how quickly that digest queue fills up.
The articles are sent directly to your email as a link and an attachment. They are ad-free and easy to read. It really is like taking your favorite content on the Internet and making you own little e-magazine.
I tried reading the articles on both my iPhone and computer, and they worked great. This would be a great program for iPad owners who want to have a bunch of articles to read on the road while away from the Internet.
Magazinify is a pretty awesome web app. Being able to turn your favorite articles into a magazine is a really novel and cool idea. Some people miss the old days of having magazines instead of content being scattered all over the Internet, and now thanks to Magazinify, they can.
