Time magazine recently announced its list of 50 Best iPhone Apps 2011 divided into the following categories: games, on the go, lifestyle, music & photography, entertainment, and social. I see that Instapaper is on the list. That was one I wished I had downloaded to my iPad before taking my recent flight to San Francisco for Macworld. It lets you capture web content for offline viewing. Overall, this is an excellent selection of must-have apps.
Instapaper helps you stay on top of the news when you’re away from a data connection. Use the app or the Instapaper Web site to add your favorite news sources to your account. Then, before you head out, sync the app with the Instapaper Web site. Any new content from your selected sites will be automatically downloaded to your device and be waiting for you to enjoy during your commute into work. You can even use the iPhone’s pinch motion to zoom in or out on an article.
