Sight is an app that will allow you to save articles, so then you can read them later or while your device is online. Sight will analyize the screenshot you took and search for that article (as best it can) and then add it to your list of saved article. Currently the app is only available on iOS however there is a Sight web app.


Ask Me Anything – reddit AMA

If you are a Reddit user, then you probably heard of the infamous AMAs (ask me anything posts). Reddit AMAs can be done by any  Reddit user and  every week there are celebrities that are doing an reddit AMA, where people can ask then anything (there is the chance that your question may not be asked). The new Ask Me Anything app makes it easier for fans of reddit AMAs to contribute easier and faster.
