Interesting iPhone Software

I've been using some free iPhone software called Instapaper for a couple of months now and recommend it highly. The idea is that you can quickly and easily save web articles you run across on your computer to your iPhone for later reading. The articles are well-formatted for the iPhone screen and are immediately and comfortably readable with no tapping or pinching to get the text aligned and at a useful font size. Also, reading long text-heavy articles on your iPhone is a lot easier on the eyes that reading it on your computer screen, although it still isn't as nice as reading it on a printed page or your Kindle. And once installed, it is dead easy to save the articles: merely click a "Read Later" bookmark in your web browser's "Bookmarks" toolbar and you're golden!
