Read It Later was one of the better Android apps for archiving web content to read at a later date and it has just been given a full makeover, a new name and a welcome price reduction. It'll now cost you absolutely nothing. The principle behind Pocket couldn’t be simpler: if you find something you like on the web just open the …
I've been using this for a little while now and I love it. I've got the Android client, the iOS client, and the Chrome extension so I can save to my Pocket from any of my devices and read from them as well. If you don't have it (or similar app) get it.

Tried it, but when I go in the settings and select "manage site subscriptions" it says "feature not currently available for devices with Android 3.0 or greater". Bollocks.
