iApps: Instapaper

Instapaper is a free iApp that allows users to view saved websites – “a tivo for the Internet” as one reviewer put it.

Besides the required (but understandable) account registration, Instapaper is a great tool.  After signing up, a “read later” button is added to your browser; simply click whenever you want to save a page.

The ability to access web content offline is very useful, especially on the (sleek) iPod touch. Hopefully someone will expand this idea to existing feed readers (I’m currently a fan of gReader) – hit a button and bam, a cache of all the latest posts from your favorite sites stored on your pod, ready to read after hoping on a plane or going out of service.  Apple should take requests!
