Pop!Later

We've seen all sorts of interesting things done with webOS notifications, from persistent weather and stock information to pop-up mini news readers. But they were always basic and focused apps. But Science Apps, the webOS developers behind Starter and Lithium News, recently kicked things up a notch with the app-in-a-notification system with Pop!Later.

This new app is a Read It Later client that lives in a notification on your webOS smartphone or TouchPad. Not only can you use it to submit a copied URL, you can actually browse, read, and manage your saved articles all from within the notification. You might be asking yourself, "Why would I want this?" Essentially this lets you have two apps running at once on the same screen - Pop!Later providing the Read It Later view while whatever else you want - a movie, for example - takes up the rest of the screen.

Seem to be good

Man I would love the developers forever if we could get this same kind of integration for the notifications with Instapaper too

The dev told me yesterday that there are NO plans for Instapaper at the moment, but you can convert your account over to ReadItLater via:

He also noted that Advanced Browser integration will be in the next version.

It's an awesome app, go out and get it!

I hate to be picky about grammar, but I think you meant to use "a" instead of "an" in your title. "Pop!Later is an Read It Later app that lives inside a notification"
