On the Mac, the only option has been using the web based version Instapaper or Read It Later. [Read Later](http://mischneider.net/readlaterapp/) is free app that was recently released in the app store that offers a native OS solution.
#What is Read Later?#
>Read Later gives you access to your [Read It Later](http://readitlaterlist.com/) or [Instapaper](www.instapaper.com/). accounts in a single easy-to-use application. Within Read Later you can manage your read later account without logging in to the services via browser.
This Mac OS X app syncs articles from [Read It Later](http://readitlaterlist.com/) or [Instapaper](www.instapaper.com/). However, to use the Instapaper service you’ll need a paid subscription. Instapaper Pro users can use the app; regular Instapaper users will have to pay $1 a month.
Similar to the iOS apps, Read Later provides adjustable fonts, text sizes[^largertext] line spacing and margins.
[Read Later](http://mischneider.net/readlaterapp/) has support for archiving articles to services like Evernote, Pinboard, and Delicious and has sharing option for social sites like Twitter and Facebook[^googleplus]. You can set these up via the application’s preferences panel. The application also supports OS X Lion’s full screen mode.
You can also view the article in it’s original form.
I prefer reading my saved articles on my [iPad](http://wp.me/p-RQ) but sometimes my iPad needs charging. During those times I can catch up on my reading with [Read Later](http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/read-later/id409349978?mt=12). Read Later is free in the [Mac App Store](http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/read-later/id409349978?mt=12).
[^googleplus]: Google has to start making more progress on an API for third-party apps to send links directly to the social network.
[^largertext]: I like larger fonts for easy and fast reading. This is a technique I learned from Williams DeLamater, CEO and founder of [eReadia](http://www.ereadia.com/).
