Instapaper sees a 600% increase in downloads since the Nexus 7 launch

tumblr ky085ofqb11qz8fxio1 r1 250For those who don’t do a lot of reading on their tablets, the Instapaper app might not be one familiar to you. Just in case that’s you, Instapaper is an app that allows users to save websites and articles offline to read while they’re on the train or bus with no WiFi access (and presumably no 3G either). It’s a pretty handy tool and if you’re using a tablet as an e-reader, it might be an app worth your consideration. That being said, it has been reported that Mobelux, the developers of Instapaper, has reported that a massive increase of 600% has been seen for the Instapaper app for Android devices, especially since the launch of the Nexus 7. Of course it is hard to say if the free $25 credit to the Google Play store played its part or if many people decided that the Nexus 7 would make a worth e-reader device, but those are some pretty interesting stats and they are not alone. Other developers such as Shifty Jelly have also reported an increase in app downloads since the launch of the Nexus 7. If you’re a Nexus 7 owner, do you think that it’s true that you guys have started downloading/paying for more app since you got the tablet?
