Read/Write Daily: Hell Freezes Over, Instapaper for Android Released

Today’s theme is real-life power-ups. There are far too many smartphone apps out there to keep up with, but that’s a great thing. All these little pieces of software are getting incrementally better all the time. Their creators try to improve upon one little aspect of modern life for the price of a cup of coffee.

Here are a few exciting bits of recent app news.

Quotebook 2.0 is out for iPhone and iPad, letting you save and sync your favorite sayings across devices and always have them at hand.

If you hate spinning the stupid timer wheel in the iPhone’s built-in clock app, App Cubby’s Timer will save you.

Gliph for iPhone, Android and mobile Web is an empowering new way to exchange private messages, and its new version lets you lock up your communication behind a wall of privacy and throw away the key.

Bing Bong is a rambunctious little amoeba who lives in the small town of Microchusetts, and if enough people back Bing Bong for iOS and Android on AppStori (like Kickstarter for mobile apps), he can save his town from invaders!

There is now an official Instapaper app for Android. In other news, Hell reported record low temperatures last night.

Evernote Hello is a new way to remember people that beats the pants off the alphabetical address book. It came out for Android last week, leap-frogging the features of the already outstanding iPhone version. (Wonder why Evernote did it that way? Check out our interview with CEO Phil Libin.)
