If you’ve been looking for a simple, clean app for bookmarking pages to read later, you’ve gotta check out Instapaper Pro 2.0 for iPhone and iPod touch. The app downloads copies of webpages in an iPhone-readable format, and that’s just the beginning. You can sort article into folders for better organization, and mark specific articles as favorites, which can then be shared with friends. The app can update articles in the background, so that while you are reading one, the others that you are saved are updated to their most recent versions.
