    I keep finding apps that almost do it....

    I want something that I can put a web page in and it will update it when I tell it to (or automatically). Instapaper can do this, but not without several steps. Read it Later doesn't seem to do it all.

    There is a blog that I like to read that has no subscription options. (It is on a commercial site.) But I'd like to be able to "grab it" so I can read it away from WiFi......

    Any ideas?

    I tried to look, but will Ever Note do this?

    I use Evernote pretty extensively, both on my laptop and Touch, and not that I have found.

    If its on a commercial site, I assume that you have to provide a username & password and nothing that merely clips the page will be able to do this. The ability to clip sites in Safari (on the desktop) and make a Dashboard widget out of them doesn't allow this either.

    It's not a subscription site, so that may be an option. How does this help me get it to my Touch, though?

    It sounds like what you want is basically an iPhone version of AvantGo (which unfortunately no longer exists even for other platforms). I haven't tried it but I found this on the App Store, and there is a lite/demo version available so you may as well give it a shot.

    Yeah, I tried that, no dice. Yes, basically an avantgo/plucker sort of thing is what I'm wanting....but haven't found one for the Touch.
