It’s working again!

I have been looking for an iOS 16 replacement for Keep Everything app, since it quit working. This one seems to archive entire sites, which is exactly what I am looking for. Thanks, Developer!

Great start for version 1.0

This is a great start for version 1.0. However, in order to compete with Instapaper and Pocket long term, it will need to be more polished. Four things: 1) The website interface is ok, but need to add a "dark mode." 2) Need article saving extensions, not bookmarklets, for all major browsers. 3) In iOS app - When reading in article mode with everything but text stripped out, its to loose - the scrolling is not tight, I can move the column of text from side to side. 4) Need to offer a compeling feature that Instapaper & Pocket do not. If you can do those 4 things, you've got a winner.

iPad Pro version limited settings no text only

The version I have on my Samsung phone is far more robust than the iPad Pro version, which doesn’t support text-only or image of articles in the list. Clicking on saved articles sends out to website.
