Instapaper®

How many times have you run across a great article on the Internet, but just don’t have a chance to look at it right then and there? This handy app allows users to save a webpage for reading later, even without an Internet connection. Download the unread articles when you’re connected to the Internet, then read them at anytime, anywhere, at your leisure. This app features adjustable fonts for customers with less-than-perfect vision – you can select the font, margin, text size and line space – and you have the ability to share posts/articles to the many available social networking sites, like Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest. Cost: $3.99.

Flipboard®

Although Flipboard operates much like Instapaper (read and “collect” news stories), the Flipboard app allows users to take their reading passion a step further and create their own magazines, which they can then share with other readers. Called “your personal magazine,” Flipboard lets users create magazines about art, business, sports, photography – whatever your passion -- and browse others’ collections as well. You can add current, popular magazine content, social networks, and more. Users also have the ability to search by people, hashtags, and many other categories to find the content best suited to them, all in one easy-to-use app. Cost: Free.
