    Have no money to buy an app that let's you save web pages for offline reading? Just go to the website you want to save,and then take 1 or multiple screenshots of it by holding the home button and sleep button for a second.
    Those screenshots will then be saved to the Photos app.Once you're done reading them,just delete.

    This is also useful for people who do not want to use the browser that comes in offline reading apps.

    Or you can use this free app and not waste your time filling the camera roll with pictures of websites.

    I often video the pages I view with a cam corder then play them back at my leisure on my big screen TV later on.

    FYI: Links in this post are iTunes links

    Offline Pages is free. Setup is a bit clunky and it's not as refined as Instapaper, but if you really can't spare $4.99 after spending $499 it will do the trick.

    Also not sure why this is only useful to WiFi owners. There are a lot of 3G owners that don't use 3G regularly (like me) but do cache web pages to read in case (free or otherwise) WiFi may not be available.
