The internet is full of great stuff to read, but keeping track of it all is a chore. Luckily, read-it-later web services like Pocket, Readability and Instapaper have sprung up to help you collect articles. Words App 2.2.1 (Mac App Store link) brings those services to the desktop, giving you quick access to your links across services, as well as cool tricks like supporting cross-platform tags and folders, search and offline reading.

The Words App interface is clean and beautiful (except for the Comic setting, but I’m pretty sure that’s a design-geek joke) and lets you switch between different font styles, as well as a single- and multi-column options for a custom reading experience.

Keyboard ninjas will appreciate the extensive keyboard shortcuts for reading, filing, tagging and archiving stories.

If you spend time with any of the three supported services, Words App is well worth the money.
