My Most Used App

I’ve used Instapaper for years and it is absolutely indispensable for me. I subscribe to a few email newsletters that have lots of links to articles in them. Reading the newsletter and then each of the articles I want to read in a sitting is not easy. With Instapaper I have the emails come to an address that goes TO INSTAPAPER and then I pull up the app. I can read the newsletter and click “save” on the links I’m interested in and those get added to my reading list. Then I can set the newsletter aside and read the articles as time allows.

It also posts images of text I highlight to Twitter along with a link so I can easily share articles.

If I had any criticism it would be the pagination feature has never worked reliably for me, I often wind up with articles ending (i.e. last page) well before the actual end. Then I switch back to scrolling mode.

This is an awesome app. Indispensable.
