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. Usually this means I’ll either have a window dedicated to stuff I want to read later, or I’ll just bookmark them, and hope that I remember to actually look at them. It would be great if I could just send them all to my phone, and have them ready to read or watch when I was trying to kill time while away from my computer. With Spool, that’s completely possible.
This service works by having a plugin installed on your web browser, and an app on your phone or tablet. When you come across something you want to save, just hit the Spool icon, and it will take the page, video, or PDF and package it up nice and neatly, then send it to your phone. Worried that your mobile device doesn’t support that Flash video? That’s okay, as Spool converts everything to HTML5, to ensure maximum compatibility. The best part is that your app will automatically sync all of this new data, so when you try to access it later, you won’t even need an internet connection.
