Great app. 1 improvement recommended.

Great app for reading web articles later. One recommendation to improve it would be to pay Google’s Wavenet to read the articles, rather than the mechanical “Lost in Space” robot they have reading articles now. I’d pay extra for Wavenet reading functionality.

Needs an iOS 14 touch-up

This app is a must-have IMO, but is a little long in the tooth now.

The main issue I have with it now is that it’s slow to be shown on iOS 14’s Share sheet. I used to be able to quickly tap “Share” and tap Instapaper’s icon from any web page. Now, I have to open the Share page, close the Share page, and then re-open it in order to share to Instapaper. This is a real killer; this was a main way I queued content. Without snappiness here, this is restricting my usage of the app.

The text to speech feature could use some TLC (“74M” is read aloud as “seventy four emm” instead of “seventy four million”). I’d also love the ability for the Speak feature to auto-archive at the end of each article

It feels like scrolling has got a bit janky in iOS 14?

Overall, a great app, a must-have, just needs a fresh kick of paint!

Great on both iOS and web

I’ve been using Instapaper for a while now and thoroughly enjoy using its iOS and web platforms. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a solid read later type app.
