Beautiful and essential. But I’m unhappy with Premium.

I <3 Instapaper. I’m happy that you went private so that this absolutely beautiful app continues to remain so and get better. I applaud the readability options and the variety of stunning typefaces/fonts (Meta and Baskerville are two I use the most).

But I wish there was different pricing for different countries. Or at least options of different subscriptions with different sets of features. If there was a cheaper subscription for only the “unlimited notes” feature, I’d have been very happy. $30p.a.=₹2100 is a little too much, I’m sorry. Hope you’d perhaps, say, provide a subscription with half the price at half of the features.

Best in its class.

I have been using Instapaper for more than two years and I have to say Instapaper’s unique interface and sections provide me the perfect way to customise my articles for easy reading. Thumbs up to the developers.

I wonder whether it is possible to save whole articles which come as a slide show.

Brilliant app!

It’s a great app specifically for students who follow Current Events (both domestic & global) on a daily basis. There are certain improvements that can be made to enhance the experience (hoping Instapaper takes notice of),

1. Multicolour Highlights
2. Option to add same article in multiple folders
3. One additional level of stacking of folders (to better group issue-based articles)
4. Combine highlights of one article into one note
5. Option to delete info in an article, which appears due to uploading errors (when added using chrome extension) for eg: Ads, time & date stamps
6. Sorting/ Rearranging articles within folders based on Name, Date Created
7. Highlights to be made visible in Print Folder option
8. Better Search Options to identify all related articles of the keyword searched
9. Option to add Note beside each Paragraph of an Article, to add a personal summary based on our understanding
10. Region-specific Subscription Fee

Hope Instapaper works on these inputs! Eagerly waiting!
