While I slumber/seeking rest/my crappy cell phone finds what's best

I am interested in apps for iOs or android devices that gather information that can be used later when there is no cell or wifi available.

An example would be Instapaper, which formats articles for later use, or Crofflr, which is similar. Psygic allows one to navigate without an active cell connection.
Specifically, I like apps that will churn away in the background and cache data for later consumption. Another example might be a twitter client that saved cached copies of all the URLs in your twitter feed. I guess what I imagine is having my phone with me in a bandwidth-desert, and being able to browse content that my phone has been gathering for me on its own, or with gentle guidance. The content could also be music, images, or something else.
