Instapaper and Flipboard Let Users Save Articles for Later - NYTimes.com

I primarily use a combination of OneNote and blogging for save/read-it-later mode

With Instapaper, on the other hand, you have a complete, self-aggregated personalized publication. “One human editing a list can be more effective than any algorithm,” says Mr. Arment. “Machines are very bad at evaluating what is interesting.”

Instapaper works because the personalized magazine is built from a wide range of publications. “Media companies have outsourced it to me,” says Mr. Arment.

The app is free, and the $5 version is one of the best values in the Apple App Store. It is how Mr. Arment makes most of his money. (He says he is not going to build an app for Android devices because it creates too much complexity for a one-man operation. Other apps, like EverPaper and BenPaper, allow Android users to read their Instapaper feeds.)
