Instapaper was one of the earliest article saving services geared toward mobile devices. However, it took quite a while to come to Android. While Pocket is arguably the king on Android, Instapaper might be a more attractive option now that it's a free app. There's still a subscription that adds features, though.

So many apps to buy and so few dollars with which to do it. We can help you stretch your app budget at least a little farther with some sales. More for less? You can't argue with that. Literally, you are not able to construct a cogent argument against this proposition.

A message in the developer console (seen below) has appeared asking developers to add a physical address to their account profile.

You know the pain of watching a vertical video in a world based on horizontal players. Google took a swing at fixing that with the Google Camera app, which warns users not to do that.

Logitech makes some of the finest universal remotes available, with all sorts of buttons and touchscreens. The Harmony remotes might be super-neat, but the Android app has long suffered from a terminal case of ugly. Well, no more with the most recent update. It looks like an app you'd want to use.

Motorola really happened upon a great strategy with the OG Moto X when it added core features to the Play Store. It allows Motorola to update functionality without waiting for a full OTA, and other OEMs have been following suit. It's going to be much the same with the new Moto X—four new listings have appeared in the Play Store for this device.

Your Flipboard experience is going to change a little bit today. Users of the social-magazine-thing are going to start seeing full-screen video ads, which Flipboard kindly describes as "a deeper brand moment." It's not as annoying as it seems at first, though.
