Instapaper and Read it Later for webOS: Get Your Read On

It's a good app day here in Pre-land: Astraware has landed, Angry Birds will any minute now, and we have probably the most exciting homebrew app we've seen in a long time with Mode Switcher. If you're more of a reader than a gamer, chances are you have made it a habit of saving longer articles from the web to a service like Instapaper or Read it Later. If not, well, you really should, they're great services. Here are a couple apps that will make your downtime a bit more bearable:

  • Spare Time comes to us from SemicolonApps and interfaces with Instapaper (unofficially) to get your unread articles down to your webOS phone
  • Relego comes to us from the webosroundup hackathon and the bevy of great developers who took part in it. It interfaces with the Read it Later service for your offline reading pleasure and will have more features added soon.

For the newshounds among you who are looking for shorter bits, we still love us some Scoop here at PC HQ for how efficiently it burns though our massive Google Reader queue. Those of you with lighter RSS loads might want to check out NewsRoom, which is a fan favorite in our community
