Introducing Instapaper for Android

Here at Mobelux we’re pretty big Instapaper fans and have been since the beginning. That’s why we’re very excited to announce Instapaper for Android.

For those of you who don’t already know, Instapaper is a wonderful service that allows you to find great web pages wherever you are, then read them at home or on the go, even without an internet connection on your favorite mobile device.

Late last year Marco asked us if we’d be interested in developing an official Instapaper app for Android. The challenge of bringing the Instapaper platform to millions of Android devices was just the type of thing that gets us up in the morning, so we jumped in head first.

We’ve taken great care to make sure Instapaper for Android is a true first class citizen on Android. This is not a cross-platform framework-in-a-box hack job. We carefully designed and implemented layouts for 7-inch tablets (like the Kindle Fire and NOOK Color), 10-inch tablets (like the Motorola XOOM and Samsung Galaxy Tab) and phones (like the Samsung Galaxy series and Motorola Droid series.) Instapaper for Android supports the very highest fidelity screens and uses the newest Android UI paradigms. Long story short, this was a labor of love and we’re very proud of what we’ve made for you.

But that doesn’t mean we’re finished. Quite the opposite, actually. We’re working hard to add additional features to Instapaper for Android. We believe that we’ve captured the core Instapaper experience but can’t wait to make the app even better. All future updates will be free to existing customers who purchase Instapaper for Android, no matter which store they buy from.

Instapaper for Android is available now on Google Play and should be available soon for NOOK and Amazon Appstore (sign up here to be notified when they’ve been approved.)

So grab a good cup of coffee and start catching up on all those articles you’ve been meaning to read. Now you can do it on just about any device that you want.
