I want to do almost everything later. I want to read articles later (thanks Instapaper and all the other apps that enable this!), watch videos later, etc. But I also want to other things later. Like:
- Install apps on my computer from my iPhone
- say I'm on the bus somewhere, and a new Mac app catches my eye. I want to flag it for download and installation next time my laptop connects to the Internet. As it stands, the iOS App store will not even display Mac Apps.
- clone an open source project into my development environment
- from GitHub on my iPhone, press a button that clones this project the next time my computer is on (or if it's on now, clone it right away)
- know Apache the best, know I don't need the overhead
- a VPS fully-dedicated to the app
- queue management
- what to do when the queue is at zero?
- YouTube, Vimeo, Instapaper, Read It Later, etc. all have queues now
- Are these lists accessible via their various APIs?
- Vimeo does
- YouTube does
- Instapaper does (for Subscription accounts only)
- Read It Later does
- RIL appears to accept other media, but you save the URLs to RIL. That is, if you click the "Watch Later" button in Vimeo, or add the video to the "Watch Later" list in YouTube, it doesn't get added to RIL.
- Safari Reading List (Mac OS X Safari, iOS Safari, iCloud)
- Evidently there is no public API:
- GoodReads currently-reading and to-read libraries.
- A single website that aggregates them, with a button for each that removes them both from the mythical aggregation web app's list and from the originating web app's list
- Stellar, which is awesome, lets you star/fave/whatever directly from the app. Should the mythical queue aggregation app do 'fave' too? Or leave it to the originating web app.
- Not a to-do list, just a to-consume list.
