Instapaper is an app that allows you to save all the text content of a webpage and read it later without being connected to the Internet. Of course, the text will be saved without any of the other elements of the webpage, leaving just the text.
The app allows you to adjust the size and font you want to read the saved text in, as well as change the background color to black with white letters and other settings for easy reading in other light environments.
The other program options allow you to share your favorite text on social networks such as Twitter and Tumblr, organize all the downloaded text into handy folders, and easily change the page with the tip of your finger or the accelerometer of your device.
After becoming the most-known bookmarklet for iOS, Instapaper, powered by Tumblr developers, hits Android OS. It allows you to save webpages, articles and any other resource to read them later, even offline. What’s more, it provides a good-looking and friendly layout for making easier reading all that resources. A layout which is highly configurable.
There are other similar resources, some of them have been on Android for a long time. What could be the added-value feature of Instapaper? I would say a high compatibility and integration. Since Instapaper reached great success on iOS, there are already lots of browsers plugins and alternative apps that makes things easier. What’s more, it’s backed by a professional team of developers.
Regarding features: Instapaper allows you to save to read later lots of resources just by tap “share” button and then selecting Instapaper or through browsers plugins. Likewise, you can add folders and tags to organize your articles, save worthy articles in the archive after reading them or like them.
From setttings you can enable “dark mode” manually or automatically at night. You can re-download articles manually too, sort articles, set prompting and set up download limits.
