Read it Later for iPad

Read it Later for iPad now available →

The other offline reader makes its entry onto Apple’s larger iOS device. And it’s just what you’d expect it to be. Nate Weiner has carried over the slick iPhone UI onto the iPad, and even integrated the Digest feature he debuted a while ago. Read it Later Pro costs $4.99 for the universal app, Digest costs an additional $5, and there’s even a free Lite version, which is also universal.

Now I’ve switched between Read it Later and Instapaper so many times, I can hardly keep track. If you ask me right now, I’d say Instapaper, definitely. It’s got a much better reading experience (with support for inline graphics, pagination, dictionary), looks better, feels faster, and its subscription features are indispensable. I never quite took to the RiL’s Digest user interface, so I’ll skip on that. But who am I to judge?
