Instapaper for iPhone and iPad
Instapaper's critically acclaimed, award-winning iPhone and iPad app is the most popular way to read Instapaper content. View your saved pages in the mobile-optimized Text view. Instapaper is popular among subway commuters and iPod Touch owners because it stores your articles for reading even if you're offline.
Instapaper for Android, Kindle Fire, and Nook
Instapaper is now available for Android as well. Like the iPhone and iPad app, the Android app stores your articles for reading even if you're offline, and presents them in a clean, distraction-free layout with customizable text size and many more features.
