Instapaper for iPad Will Sell a Lot of iPads [IPad Apps]


Instapaper for iPad Will Sell a Lot of iPadsIf you like saving long, interesting articles you find during your internet travels for later, you probably already use Instapaper on your iPhone or Kindle. But boy does it look beautiful on the iPad.

Instapaper for iPad Will Sell a Lot of iPadsFor the uninitiated, Instapaper is a service that allows you to save articles on the internet for later. You put a little "Read Later" bookmarklet in your browser toolbar, and when you click it the article is beamed to your account for reading later on your device or in your browser, stripped of clutter and reduced to the plan text.

Instapaper developer Marco Arment decided to aim to have Instapaper all iPad-ready by day one (or as close to day one as possible), so he's already showing off how it'll look. And while it's a pretty straightforward adjustment of the iPhone app, it just looks right on the iPad. This sort of app is exactly what tablets were made for.

If you've got Instapaper Pro on the iPhone already, you'll get it on the iPad for free, too. Not too shabby. Be sure to check out the Instapaper Blog for more details on the app and the iPad development process, if you're interested in that sort of thing. [Instapaper Blog via Nick Bilton]
