They say location matters and I believe it after seeing the below link. The great but expensive app called instapaper is now the darling of Nexus 7 owners. Why now and why does it cost so much?
First of all, Instapaper is a popular iPhone app that transitioned to Android. What does it do? Basically is saves long blog posts and other websites locally so you can read it later at your leisure. I know what you are thinking. If you went to a site to read it you want to read it then not later. That is TRUE for most users quickly trying to catch ip on the news on their smaller screened smartphones.
How about tablets? Wouldn’t you like to lean back and finish reading something that caught your eye earlier? Doing that on a Tablet seems to be the perfect situation for it. We say that because the company behind Instapaper is reporting a 600% increase in sales after the Google/Asus Nexus 7 was released for sell. It looks like a 7 inch display is the comfort zone for relaxed reading while sipping your coffee, tea or latte. Imaging trying to do that with a 10incher in your hand.
Still though. Is 2.99 worth it in this disappearing economy? Is bookmarking and reading things later a must in this realtime, get it now world? Does a traveler gather their kindle app, Google books app and Instapaper app selections for the long trip? Maybe I need longer train rides. What do you think? Sorry, no link to the app this time folks.
