Is there software available to allow one to run Apple-compatible apps on Android tablets?
None of which I’m aware. However, bear in mind many of the most popular apps for the iPhone are now available in versions for Android phones. My guess is that, over time, if Android tablets start selling in large numbers, the same phenomenon is likely to occur, with at least the top apps for the iPad being issued in versions for Android tablets.
I subscribe to 10 magazines. When I want to save an article I tear it out and file it away. I was wondering if there is another way to save articles by faxing/photocopying them and sending them as an attachment to a remote site accessible anywhere in the world. I would be willing to pay for the site but it has be easy to use.
Chromapaper is a new Chrome web app that makes it easy to save pages to the popular read-it-later service Instapaper. Until today, it was called "Instapaper for Chrome," but because it's the work of an independent developer, Instapaper forced a name change to make it clear that this web app is unofficial. The name Instachrome was already taken by a similar extension, so Chromapaper it is.
Chromapaper has one feature that competing Instapaper extensions don't: offline reading in the browser. Instapaper can be used for simple bookmarking, but saving articles to read when you're not connected is its real strong suit, and Chromapaper is the first web app to bring that feature to Google Chrome. Just click the "offline sync" button to cache your saved Instapaper articles. When you're offline, fire up the Chromapaper app from your Chrome dashboard, and your articles will all be there.
Chromapaper doesn't add a toolbar icon, unforunately, so you'll have to use the old, reliable Instapaper bookmarklet to save articles.
If Google Chrome is your browser of choice, the Send to Instapaper extension is exactly what you're after. Rather than merely replacing a bookmarklet with a browser action button, this extension adds an entry to your context menu. Right-click a link that you'd like to check out later on, and it's added to your queue.
You'll need to be signed in to your Instapaper account first, as the extension doesn't store your username or password.
Instapaper is the creme-de-la-creme of web clipping services, and now it's got its own Chrome extension. Instachrome gives Chrome users a quick way to save and read articles, right from the menubar. You can also use it to view a webpage in Instapaper's highly-readable text view.
Instachrome has two modes: one is a basic click-to-save button, and the other is a full pop-up menu with several Instapaper options. You can switch between the two in the extension's options menu. Instachrome is free, but you'll need an Instapaper account to use it. Fortunately, Instapaper accounts are free, too.
