Ever since Digg purchased Instapaper from Marco Arment, the news aggregator super site has been adding new features to the somewhat neglected service to better compete with the likes of would-be challengers like Paper.

Continuing that trend, Instapaper for iOS was updated to version 5.1.5 today, bringing some new features, including support for Instapaper’s trending stories, a new send to Amazon Kindle function for subscribers, better AirPlay support, gestures and more.

Here’s the full notes:

Instapaper is the simplest way to save and store articles for reading: offline, on-the-go, anytime, anywhere, perfectly formatted. Instapaper for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch provides a mobile-optimized Text view that makes reading Internet content a clean and uncluttered experience.

What’s New in Version 5.1.5
* Instapaper Daily integration
* Send to Kindle functionality (subscriber only)
* Autorenewable subscriptions
* Improved AirPlay integration
* Fix back gestures with pagination enabled
* Other minor enhancements

You can download Instapaper for iOS here. It’s rather expensive, though, at $3.99. Not sure if it’s worth that, when apps like Pocket are currently free.
