Yeah what's this going back to "fat clients" with the apps? "Download our pre-order app!" says your favorite restaurant. That should just be a bookmark in browser to correct place on their web site.

Blame the Google Tax - SEM is a high-cost channel. If you can get people to bypass Adwords by using your app instead then you're getting visits on the cheap.

I've been using Instapaper as an offline reader for several years on my phone. This is because I have an underground train journey of about 40mins each way, during which time I have no network connectivity. Instapaper is pretty sweet, and it's rare that I save an article that it's not able to render later on. I collect a backlog of articles for my phone which I then read on the train.

If Pintrest fuck it up I shall rage hard, but I'm sure there are offline readers elsewhere. Instapaper is quite well designed though (both visually and functionally, although I thought their "tilt scrolling" experiment was a bit weird.
