A “read later” list is an essential productivity tool. Sending articles to a separate app for later reading keeps you focused when you’re at work, and gives you something productive to do on your phone during downtime. But it’s easier to save an article than to read it, so stories on “read later” lists (like in the apps Instapaper and Pocket) tend to pile up. Here are three different strategies for getting through your reading list, and the tools to execute them.

Today, Mozilla, the company behind Firefox, has announced that it has acquired the popular bookmarking service, Pocket.
Last week, Pocket updated with a new feature that added trending stories to Chrome's new tab page. While neat in theory, the hijacking of a new tab is a bit annoying, and weirdly there was initially no way to disable it. Thankfully, now there is.
Pocket is one of the best bookmarking services, but if you don't have a ton of stuff saved in it already, it's a little tough to find new articles to read. Now, the site has a new Explore tab that should make that a little easier.
Web/Android/iOS: Bookmarking services like Pocket and Instapaper are great, but one place they fail a bit is organisation. Stash is a service that solves that by automatically organising your saved sites for you.
Pocket's recommended feed just got a little more personal. You can now follow friends and interesting public figures to see what they're recommending in the read-it-later service, and share your own recommendations as well.
