Instapaper update brings slew of new features


Instapaper, the save-for-later app that lets you save web-pages for offline use in an easy-to-read format, has gotten an upgrade in the Google Play Store. You can expect more than your usual abundance of bug fixes and performance enhancements, however, as the “What’s New” list is chock full of goodness.

For starters, new pagination features allow you to scroll a web page by full pages. The Feature is, well, a feature that will recommend some articles for your viewing pleasure. You can now scroll through a page by tilting your device, apply a sepia tone to the background of the page, create in-line footnotes and more.

At $3 per download Instapaper isn’t the most popular Android app there is. It has only received 10k-50k downloads, and most users decide they either don’t need the functionality or would rather get it in free form elsewhere. Still, many will tell you that Instapaper is worth every penny, and if spotty connections and cluttered websites are an issue for you then I find it hard to disagree. Give it a shot in the Google Play Store and see if you can’t fall in love with a new way to read the content you love.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
