Save It for Later

with 2 comments

Even if you have a 3G model iPad (I don’t), there are times where you can’t or won’t connect to the Internet. My iPhone, for instance, goes dead in the middle of New York Harbor, and flight attendants would treat me a little less delicately than they handled Arianna Huffington when she refused to shut down her BlackBerry while taxiing for takeoff. And you might want to just save stuff to read later, for the sake of it.

Download InstaPaper. It installs a “save for later” bookmark on your browser. Go to an article you want to save, tap save, and you’ve got it to read later. Just make sure, and open the app to make it load into the app. If you don’t, you’ll have the disappearing reading material problem I described in the book-reader apps post.

  2. Instapaper is one of my favorite productivity apps because it enables viewing saved articles across lots of devices — web, phone and pad — with good sorting and archiving abilities. I use it mostly to save items I want to read but can’t take the time for during the busy day. Also love the reader-friendly ad-free format for messy web content.
