Ratings and Reviews
Better than Pocket
This app wins compared to Pocket for me beucase if it’s good price for Premium and simple design. I only wish the text-to-speech service was less robotic.
Recently converted from Pocket to Instapaper due to Pocket’s cluttered UI. I get unlimited highlighting and beautiful and simple interface that encourages reading. Definite recommendation to those focused on reading text everyday.
Too much fluff, not enough work on the parser
The text parser is far from the best on the market at this point — Apple‘s own Safari reader does a better job of stripping down articles, as does the parser in Fiery Feeds. I regularly use the ‘Report Problem’ button, but never see improvements of clutter or missing image issues.
Worse, the new share sheet extension is a step backward.
First, you often have to open the share sheet multiple times just to get the Instapaper extension to show up.
Second, what used to be a one tap process with a delay is now a screen-blocking process that requires one swipe to clear the screen and a second tap to dismiss the share sheet itself. I can’t think of a single other extension that works this way, but it feels more cumbersome than the old way, which made you wait but at least didn’t require multiple gestures to dismiss.
