The best Reading Experience on the Mac.
We sync all your RSS & read-it-later articles down into your inbox. No matter which service you use, Instapaper, Readability or Pocket. We treat them all with the same love & attention, focused on readability & typography. And we process every article & sync down on your desktop computer, so you can read it even if you haven’t got a working internet connection.
Our approach on making RSS better.
RSS feeds that automatically fetch the whole article behind the short teaser text, get rendered in Read-it-Later style and put into your inbox for your reading pleasure. As soon as you find an article worth keeping, just pull it into you folders or favorite it, and it will stay forever inside your library.
Tags, folders, archiving & favorites
Every read-it-later service provides different features. We think these should be available for everybody. With us, Readability users can put articles in folders & Instapaper fans can tag their articles. We can’t sync these changes back, if your service doesn’t provide them. But you can use them in our app.
Vertical, horizontal, dark, light & responsive
We want to provide the best possible reading experience on the desktop. Switch from single column vertical reading to multi column horizontal scrolling. Or from white background to a dark background. And watch the font sizes change as you scale the window to fit your needs. We want you to have it your way, easy & fast.
Bug fixes and new look
Ratings and Reviews
Frustrating and feature poor
This app has no help documentation whatsoever. NONE. Furthermore, it will not handle rss feeds in safari, and it doesn’t have built-in browser- click a link and it’s off to Safari. Oh, and there is no way to auto- mark articles as read after a ceratin time period- so if you have more rss feeds than you can read, you will have 1000+ unread articles sooner or later. The one good thing about it is that it does do a good job of getting text versions of the stories.
Get Reeder instead
Choose Reeder 2 instead so that you get more theming options, better rendering, better RSS/Read service subscription management, better control overall for the same price. Leaf would’ve also been a competitor had the latest update not break it.
Where’s the pretty dark theme as promised in the photo?
This is NOT a Mac version of Instapaper.
1. This only appears to bring in 20 articles at a time. If you want to get the next 20, quit and restart.
2. Don't see any way to see what articles are Archived or not from Instapaper.
3. There are no Preferences. The Preferences screen holds the logins from your accounts, that's it. No fonts, no choices on how the articles are displayed, no way to assign gestures or shortcuts.
The only 'good' thing about this app is that it indexes all of your articles (20 per launch) and gives you a descending list of what words appear most. Including 'new', 'about', 'after'. That's pretty much the only thing this is good for.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
