"Insatiable consumers of Internet content, rejoice-developer Marco Arment has released "the biggest update ever" for Instapaper, his Web service and iOS app for saving content to read later, right in time for the iPad 2's release."
Social Integration seems to be the direction where software is heading, and this new Instapaper version now allows (controlled and managed) sharing of news stories and personal content. Facebook and Twitter are the biggies, and even Evernote notes can be shared. In addition to adding a social layer to the app, improvements include more speed (always a welcome addition), search capability, support for higher resolution images, and other tweaks and additions. The new version requires iOS 3.1 or later, costs $4.99 for a new purchase, and is a free upgrade for all existing users.
