I <3 Instapaper

If you find yourself looking at tons of sites nay if you are on the internet. I suggest you get an Instapaper account. I find it particularly useful when I am on twitter (or when I am on a very slow connection). This way I can save pages I want to look at them later. 

Basically Instapaper is a service which saves links and shows them sans formatting. Which means it will consume less data. Content is king and with Instapaper it is content which is front and center, of course you can visit the original site with a simple click / tap. It's a very good multi-platform bookmark service.

After creating your account you can make a Read Later button so you can add web pages to your Instapaper via the browser. As you can see I have Instapaper pinned on Google Chrome (yes I am a chrome puff) this way whatever I save on my iPhone will show up once I start Chrome. Whatever I tag for later in Chrome will also show up in the Instapaper iOS app.

They have an iPhone App, the lite (free) version is good enough. The full version will cost you 4.99USD 


Most twitter clients support Instapaper here it is in action with TweetBot


Instapaper is an essential service for anyone who uses the internet.

Tips & Tricks|Orientation Aware Backgrounds

I just wanted to share some stuff I learned over at xda-dev's forum today.
Anyway as the title states this is about today themes and Orientation Aware Backgrounds. It's really quite simple
All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.
tdywater_320_240.gif [Landscape Image] = 320 x 240 image
tdywater_240_320.gif [Portrait Image] = 240 x 320 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image
tdywater_640_480.gif [Landscape Image] = 640 x 480 image
tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 399 x 586 image
What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…
