General FAQ

Frequently asked questions about the app and extension.

What is the Articles app?

Articles lets you bookmark and save news, blog or other stories for reading later. It doesn't simply save links to those pages you want to return to, it also downloads their content and converts it to a minimal format. Read anything you saved later with just the essential text and images, without any headers, ads or clutter to get in the way.

Refer to the Get Started Guide for more information about the reader app.

What is the Bookmark Extension?

The Articles app comes bundled with an extension, which integrates with any other iOS app. Save articles directly from e.g. Safari, Chrome, Firefox, Twitter, Medium or Reeder by using the bookmark extension.

See the Bookmark Extension Guide for how to enable and use the extension.

What is the Today Widget?
