December 16, 2013, 11:02 AM — From now through December 19th, Instapaper is free to download on iPhone or iPad.
If you're not familiar with Instapaper already, it's time to take a closer look. Like other read-it-later programs, Instapaper saves web pages for reading later on your smartphone, tablet, computer, or Kindle. It's one of the best and most useful apps for iOS.
Here are a few reasons to love it (and use it over similar apps like Pocket):
- Articles are saved in a clean and uncluttered format
- You can customize the fonts, text sizes, line spacing, and margins
- There's a night reading mode to protect your eyes (and sleep)
- You can read everything offline
- Sort and filter your unread items by popularity, article length, date, and reading time or use the shuffle mode for a surprise read
- Organize items into folders
- Tilt to scroll or flip pages
...and quite a bit more.
Plus, it's free this week (normally $3.99)! Grab it on iTunes and see what you think.
