Now that Apple has announced a ‘read it later’ feature in mobile safari does that mean that services like instapaper and read-it-later are doomed?
I hope they aren’t. Both of these services are really useful in different ways from each other and my bet would be that Apple’s version within mobile safari won’t be as good but could damage the existing apps and their business models.
Of cours there’s a certain sense of inevitability with services like this that can be subsumed into the OS. My hope is that both of these will develop and expand their services beyond what Apple bring in the autumn, but I guess I’ll have to wait and see. I’d hate to see them disappear.
