Used too much storage.

I hope instapaper can decrease the amount of storage usages. It took a lot of storage 😊 Thank you.

Developer Response ,

Hi there,

Sorry you experienced a lot of storage usage. If you go to the app's Settings > Advanced > Repair Local Storage, the app will re-download all content on next launch but should have a lower footprint on storage. Additionally, you can lower the sync limits via Settings > Advanced, which will guarantee lower storage usage as well.

If you have any other questions or want to provide us with more specifics about what you're saving and the exact storage usage you're getting, please let us know at Thanks again for the feedback and for using Instapaper!

The great app as Flipboard

This is the first app I bought when I got my first iPhone 2+ years ago.

It is the App I use almost everyday and I love the simple and nice of it and really appreciate what the developers done so far.
