Let’s take Feedly as an example

Feedly is an application designed to “deliver all your favorite content in one place” by making contecnt from news sites, magazines, feeds, tumblr blogs, YouTube, Vimeo etc available all in one place.

You can organise your content as you add it, into subject area categories

Equally, you can flag articles to read later, or further explore the publication by following the corresponding sections in the menu available from the left hand side of the screen.
