Instapaper for iOS Updated to Version 3.0

The popular Instapaper app for iPhone and iPad has received a major update today. The new version is 3.0 and it brings a number new features that according to the developer, makes it the largest Instapaper update to date.

New features include Sharing, Likes, Connecting with Friends, Editors Pick as well as a completely written web browser. A number of other features and bug fixes can also be found in the update.

The new sharing feature allows you to push out content to friends on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Pinboard as well as pass updates on to your Evernote account as and when needed.

The Stars function has been removed, basically because people didn’t know how to use it, or what it was for I should say. This is now called Likes and what it does is allows you to Like a page and if you have a friend following your Instapaper feed, it lets them see what you like so they can read it also.

Overall, an impressive update to an already handy app. For those unaware of what Instapaper does, it allows you to install a bookmark on your iOS browser, or desktop browser and each time you come across something you want to read, you can click a “Read Later” button and this is then sent to your Instapaper account and made available for you to read on your iPhone or iPad at a time when you are traveling for example.

The update is free to those who have already purchased the app. You can grab that from the App Store. Alternatively, it’s $4.99 for those who haven’t purchased it yet.
