Instapaper is an extremely well-liked program that provides users with a highly regarded method of saving and archiving articles for later reading. The formatting capabilities of Instapaper are one of its primary strengths. Because the program retains the information of web sites in a format that is suited for iOS, it is simple to read, particularly on a screen that is on the smaller side.

The fact that you can personalize the way your text appears on screen, giving you a selection of fonts to choose from, a variety of color themes, and a number of different options for the amount of space between words, makes it much simpler to read. In addition, organizing the content you have saved in Instapaper is a breeze thanks to the folders that allow you to categorize the articles you have saved and the ability to sort articles according to popularity, publication date, and article length.

You can listen to the stuff you’ve saved on Instapaper so that you can take a break from reading it while still benefiting from Instapaper’s text-to-speech capabilities, which allows you to highlight passages of text and add up to five new notes each month.

The free version of Instapaper is a feature-rich choice that will satisfy the needs of the vast majority of typical users. On the other hand, if you are interested in taking things to a higher level, you have the option of subscribing to Instapaper Premium for either $2.99 per month or $29.99 per year. Premium grants you access to a full-text search for all of the articles that you have bookmarked, an unlimited number of highlights and notes, a text-to-speech playlist that allows you to listen to numerous articles at once, and unrestricted usage of the function that speeds up reading.

Instapaper reviews

During the week I have little time to stop and read articles of interest, either ones that I run across or those in my Google Reader. Instapaper solves the problem by letting me click on my little ¨Read Later¨ toolbar bookmark when I´m on a website or article that I want to read later. It saves it all on my account and allows me to read it on the weekends, when I have more free time. Think of it as a temporary bookmark. The best part is that I can download all of the saved articles into Kindle form and get it sent to my Kindle.

I couldn't survive without Instapaper. Throughout the work day I come across a million things I'd like to read - both work and fun - but rarely have time to stop to read them. So, I simply use the Instapaper bookmarklet to "Read Later" and then read the articles simply and clearly from my iPhone during my commute.

I have been a big evernote user since the beginning and when instapaper came out I also was the first to try this as I much prefer reading articles on my tablet than the computer screen. The problem is that it is very challenging to back to the original article once you have saved it. This is different and more seamless in evernote. The other big reason I have stopped using instapaper is that evernote is everywhere and much more supported for clipping articles. I would say try instapaper if evernote seems too robust and complicated. Instapaper is a simplier experience if more watered down.
