Old Competition Post

On Monday we reviewed the excellent Palimpsest for iPad, a great app for getting stuck into some long reads. To quote myself:

Palimpsest is a great way to engage with fascinating longer articles on your iPad. The curated sources and personalisation providing a stream of engrossing reads!

If you like to discover new ad interesting things to read, and love your iPad, then Palimpsest may be the perfect app for you – look out below for how to enter.


While it may surprise some, it certainly surprised me, since acquiring an iPad I have actually found myself reading more. Not simply more articles and short newsflashes, although I tend to read a lot of both of these, but more long-form articles and essays; pieces of writing that engage with you on a deeper level and challenge your perceptions.

One of the iPad apps that has had a dramatic influence on this trend is the wonderful Instapaper, which is synonymous with reading longer articles offline. Another, more recent, influencer of my reading habits has been Palimpsest, which presents you with a personalized stream of interesting articles from renowned sources.

Read on to find out whether Palimpsest could be the perfect app to augment reading on your iPad, and a way to break free from the incessant brevity that’s prevalent on the web.
