Ratings and Reviews
Best App Ever.
This is my most favorite app of all time. I read a lot of articles from news sites and blogs. Short form, long form, tech, opinion, basically everything and anything. Instapaper is a great place for me to keep all my favorite articles that I want to read now or later without all the ads and excess. Just the message and that’s it. You can even have Instapaper speed read the articles for you if you’re into that sort of thing, insert notes anywhere into the article, highlight a word and get a definition and/or a Wikipedia snippet right there in the article, there’s dark/light themes, text for people who have dyslexia, change the font by slider to whatever size you want, you can even copy and paste the stripped text wherever you want. Instapaper is an app that you will appreciate so much you’ll be asking where you can donate money to keep it alive forever. It’s the ultimate readers Swiss Army knife.
Needs fixes many fixes - used to be one of my apps ever
Update after developer review: they’re aware of issues and working on fixes and improvements, so that ups it to 3 stars; happy to go 4 stars once the spacing issue is fixed with upper and lower borders on iPhone X in iBooks pagination mode, then 5 stars once they dim out the Home indicator. Thank you for listening, Instapaper folks. 🙌🏼📖📰👀
Update for 7.5.2 on Jan 23, 2018, which purportedly hides Home indicator when you’re in full screen mode, however, I just tried it, in full screen mode, after closing all apps and restarting, and the home indicator is still there no matter what I try. See below comments with hopes those will get fixed as well as they’re still sane after 7.5.2.
Previous: I’ve been a huge fan of Instantpaper for many many years, I love it, but one thing that’s always bugged me, is that there is no full justified text feature to make the margins on either side balance out like you can with Kindle, Nook, iBooks, etc. Also, the pagination feature to use iBooks like page turns on an iPhone 10 just doesn’t work properly, there’s a huge gap at the bottom of every page, while the top part of the screen and the text is way too close to the upper edge, I just need a simple fix, and maybe that will get fixed along with the lack of full justification, that would be so nice, that I would give it five stars again.
Developer Response ,
Sorry for any inconvenience, the home bar hiding works on fast pagination as expected but not iBooks due to some technical differences (which I'd be more than happy to outline the specifics of if you want, just let us know at email@example.com). We should be able to introduce support for it for the iBooks pagination display in a future update. We're also working on a variety of pagination improvements for future releases and I've filed a request for justified text so we can keep it in consideration. Let me know if there's anything else. Cheers!
Makes RSS managing 10x more efficient!!!
Wasn’t a fan of RSS until I found out about Instapaper and how reader friendly it was. Ended up downloading Reeder 3 to manage all of my local RSS feeds, dividing feed categories by subjects. Then ended up going with Instapaper over Pocket because again, how reader friendly and simple it’s interface is.
Now I use Reeder 3 like a spider web to collect all articles “I might be interested in”, skim through the titles on Reeder 3 THEN dish them off and way into Instapaper through the share button on my iPhone. After I’m done skimming on Reeder 3, I mark the folders I skimmed through to “all read” and keep the best of the articles saved on Instapaper.
THE BEST PART
I get to manage the relevant selected articles on my Instapaper into their own folders!! MAKING SKIMMED TOPICS EVEN MORE PRECISE ON MY INSTAPAPER. Along with all of the annotating features Instapaper supports. The rest of the articles that don’t make it into folders in my Instapaper are simply archived, keeping my home folder fresh and clean for the next cycle I go through Reeder 3.
Instapaper truly is a game changer!!!
Only thing I believe can be really helpful is if you were able to completely manage folders’ settings on the Instapaper iOS application. That would make this app truly killer!!
Regardless, keep it up guys this app is fire! 🔥
