I have to say, and this is my first ever review, I find Instapaper’s service and app to be excellent and I had no hesitation in becoming a premium subscriber. The integration with other apps makes it possible for my partner and I use it as a shared bookmark resource. Then there is the reading view, which is so comfortable to use. Saving this view as a pdf also gives great results. A great and affordable tool thank you.

Become one of most used apps

Like my Twitter client (Tweetie) Instapaper has become a must have app. It's integration with iPhone, therefore the speed and simplicity at which it can be used is second-to-none, probably only slightly beaten by Tweetie for me. Integration with the Instapaper website is top class. I've read Marco Arment (developer of Instapaper) about section and I couldn't believe that this is only a side project - the attention he gives to it (see specifically his insistance on getting the scroll feature right others are raving about - a blog post on the Instapaper blog).

Instapaper itself has helped me read more and more in-depth articles I would never have time for. Now when I get a moment free I can grab a coffee and Instapaper can entertain and inform me. I personally can't wait to see how Marco will improve it (the folder as a feed, and seeing your friends starred articles are awesome to name a few).
