Automatically Send Google Reader Articles To Pocket Or Instapaper

Bookmark apps such as Pocket, Instapaper and Readability are awesome ways to store and catch up on the interesting articles you find online. However, if you use Google Reader, saving those articles is a multi-step process. Here's an IFTTT recipe that will send articles to your favourite service in one keystroke.

IFTTT, our favourite webapp-automating service, has actions for Pocket, Instapaper and Readability built in. All you need to do is create a recipe (like this one from user masemase) that adds an item to Pocket, Instapaper or Readability whenever you star it in Google Reader. That way, as you're flying through your RSS feeds, you can star anything that looks interesting and check it out in your favourite app later on.

    I use the pocket addon for Firefox and have enabled the option for a pocket button in Google Reader beside stories.
