Popular read it later app Instapaper has just released an update that allows it to update in the background. This has been done using the iOS 7 background app refresh feature. For read it later services, background app refresh can be a big deal since it means you don't have to remember to open Instapaper periodically in order for it to pull in anything you've sent to the service.
Pocket, the popular read it later service for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch has made its way to the Mac. If you're a fan of the iOS version of Pocket, you'll be glad to know it's now available for download and yes, the Mac version is also free.
