Cold Turkey keeps you off of distracting sites when you need to work

Self-discipline is an important characteristic to have. Unfortunately sites like Facebook, Twitter and Reddit are constantly there to challenge our ability to stay on task, what with their constantly-updated content and all.

Use Spool to save websites and videos to your phone for offline browsing

I spend a lot of time online for work, and tend to come across articles and videos that I want to look at, but don’t have time for.

It would be great if I could just send them all to my phone, and have them ready to read or…
