Magazinify


Magazinify is a website (and app) that you can use to save articles from the web into a convenient daily digest for reading later.  There are several services like this that are already out there such as readability which I use for the iPad but Magazinify is different in that it converts the articles into .pdf format.  The easiest way to use this service is to use a browser extension for Chrome or Firefox or a bookmarklet for IE and Safarri.  Using these shortcut tools you can clip articles and they will be sent to you as a .pdf file at the end of the day in one easy to read format.  These articles can then be viewed on your computer, tablet or smartphone.

Now What?

This is a great time-saving tool for teachers who want to stay on top of the latest articles in their content area (or favorite technology blogs).  Oftentimes teachers are looking for articles to use with their students and this service would be a nice way to bundle those together into one .pdf for sharing with students.
