OwcaTylem ,


I’m using this app only for recipes. I categorised them by meals and I’m using it regularly for cooking and baking. I really recommend this app. And there is no annoying commercials!!🤩 you can added some notes on websites which you saved (I’m using it when I calculated Fahrenheit to Celsius if I don’t won’t to do it every time). On free version you can make only a few notes per month.

still ways to go

its a good looking easy to use app and plesant to read experience, but utter lack of archive sorting (tags) makes going back to old articles impossibly cumbersome. Still, they don't sell away our data and keep the app polished so keeping my sub for now.

Apple Watch app doesn’t sync articles

Instapaper is great but it stopped working with Apple Watch app: it shows only empty screen instead of synced articles.

Developer Response ,

Our apologies, we're actually deprecating the Apple Watch app as of the next iOS release. Apple just released a newer watch OS before we got the chance. We'll keep reintroducing Apple Watch support in mind for future developments.
