So, after Instagram and Flipboard, Instapaper is now available as an Android application ($2,99). It lacks several key features of the iOS version, like fullscreen reading and pagination, and sadly, while it does have some Holo elements, it still looks very non-native (miles better than that horrid copy/paste job Instagram did, though). It’s yet another prime iOS exclusive moving to Android, but I’m honestly wondering how many people care at this point, considering there’ve been enough excellent alternatives on Android for a while now. Let’s just say that I don’t think sales will make Marco Arment change his mind about there not being any serious money in Android application sales, but whether or not that would be Android’s fault in this particular case, I don’t know.

First time I ever heard about this application.
And been using http://www.instafetch.com/ for a while, not only it’s better than readability, it adds speech that brings the app to whole new level.
Can count hundreds of pages of osnews articles that it have read to me during my bicycle trips.
