Additional Features:

- Adjustable fonts, text sizes, line spacing, and margins

Customer Reviews

Love it!

I recently switched to Instapaper from Pocket, and am so glad I did! Instapaper is full of little things that enhance the experience. The index of articles has little dots at the bottom, so you can easily pick out a short or long article; those dots also indicate your progress in an article!

Tilt Scrolling sounds like a gimmicky feature, but is very nice. No need to readjust your hold on the iPad - just slightly tilt the device and it slowly scrolls.

Other great "little things" are auto night mode after sunset, and automatically syncing when you arrive at a your favorite craft coffee shop. The article view, while "white", has nice subtle grey gradient!

I would like to see the icons revised. They look a and not iOSy. Primarily, "Liked" in article view, "Friends" and "The Feature" in the sidebar. This is where Pocket has a _slight_ win over Instapaper - their UI there is highly polished.

Tilt Scrolling could use a slight improvement: I will sometimes over-scroll by half a line, cutting off text. If I stop scrolling within a line of the start of a new paragraph, what about moving slightly to the break between paragraphs?

Best app ever

I send everything I want to read to instapaper for YEARS. It works flawlessly and easily. I have it connected to my browsers, my feed readers, my mobile devices- I also send instapaper articles to my kindle right from the instapaper iphone app now in this latest version. Awesome feature! Daily and weekly suggested reading lists are crowd sourced curation of the best of journalism. So smart!


Love the simple design and ease of use. Controls to adjust size of text, typeface, brightness are easy to find.

I would love if the 'browse' section had more to offer - a daily refresh of the latest political, world, and technology news in their own appropriate categories...for when I don't have time to peruse my usual news apps/sites.

Regardless, truly impressed with this app.
