Instapaper for iOS update adds Kindle functionality, new discovery feature
Article saving and sharing tool Instapaper has been updated, offering a new Kindle functionality, an integrated web discovery feature and more. Instapaper allows users to save most web pages as text only, removing the web layout and ads and optimizing it for iOS device screens. Able to store up to 500 articles, users can store unlimited articles on the Instapaper website.
Instapaper v5.1.5 allows subscribed users to send saved articles to their Kindle e-reader. Additionally, the integration of the previously web-only feature Instapaper Daily is now included as an app component, providing a culmination of most-read articles on Instapaper. AirPlay streaming is now supported, and automatically-renewable subscriptions can now be selected. Instapaper is priced at $4, with subscription options starting at $3 for three months.

Workspace rental service startup Breather has moved beyond its soft launch in Montreal to expand in New York City. The Breather app for iOS allows users to book a private room in Flatiron, Soho or near Madison Square Garden for a certain amount of time, ranging from 30 minutes to a full day. Users book a space, and can receive access by requesting a code upon arrival. All workspaces offer free Wi-Fi and comfortable seating. Breather currently has one space in each New York location, able to accommodate five to eight people at a flat rate of $25 per hour. A San Francisco launch is anticipated in the next couple of months.
