Customer Reviews

Instapaper understands reading

This app understands how to facilitate the reading process. You won't understand how much faster and more pleasurable it is to read articles from the web until it's just you and the words and the relevant pictures; no interstitial ads, no sidebar distractions.

Being able to time shift your reading and keep it on your device for when you're away from a network are huge pluses, and "dark mode"--perfect for reading in bed at night--means I can read in more places, less obtrusively. I get through so much more content while simultaneously giving each article more thought that this app is worth it for the increased throughput alone, even if the resulting experience weren't so much more pleasurable.

Great idea, text to speech feature needs work

So excited to find this app. It's exactly what I was looking for. If the text to speech part of the app (my absolute favorite part) was better, I'd give this 5 stars and absolutely not hesitate to upgrade to paid. I have trouble following and understanding all I'm hearing. I play it on .5 speed, which helps, but the tone and pace are terrible. She needs more pauses. Especially with line breaks. And please make her read the headlines. I realize this is just a computer generated voice but the feature is almost not usable... Any upgrading you do to the voice will be much appreciated. Also many words are mispronounced.

Love it!

I was using another read it later app (I'm not sure what these are called), but it didn't have any reading tools, eg, highlighter, annotations, comments. When I found out Instapaper could do those things plus text-to-speech, I knew I'd found what I was looking for.

I'm learning Spanish, so I read a Spanish news article per day, and I need to highlight new words and note their meanings. Then, I listen to the article to develop my listening skills. When I get better the speed reading feature will help a lot.
