Instapaper for iPad, iPhone Updated With New Support for the Kindle, Airplay

Betaworks instapaper-icon-200x200[1]rolled out an update for their Instapaper app today, adding features that Kindle fans and video buffs are going to appreciate. In addition to bug fixes and other minor improvements, the iOS app now supports auto-renewable subscriptions, and it has the Instapaper Daily integrated into the browse tab, giving readers a new source of articles to read.

The app also now lets readers send articles to their Kindle account, saving them the step of going to the Instapaper website. And finally, the app gains support for a feature which even i can appreciate even though I won't use it: AirPlay support. You can now save a link to a video into the Instapaper app and then click the link and stream the video to AirPlay compatible devices like an Apple TV.

While apps like Instapaper were initially conceived as a way to save reading material for later, in reality they're now being used to save anything a user might want later, including videos. Video is in fact one of the more common types of content that is being saved to apps like Instapaper, and as you might recall video is the reason ReadItLaler was renamed to Pocket. So it makes perfect sense the Instapaper app to add a feature which video junkies will appreciate.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
