Instapaper on the iPad®, iPhone®, and iPod touch®.
The critically acclaimed, award-winning app to read web pages on the go, in the air, or on the couch.
Find great web pages wherever you are, then read them at home or on the go, even without an internet connection, on your iPad®, iPhone®, or iPod touch®.
Simply install the Instapaper app and download your unread articles when you have Wi-Fi or 3G coverage, then you can read them anytime: on the train, on the bus, in an airplane, at the bank, or in your favorite chair. (Goes great with coffee.)
It's just $3.99, and it's a universal app for both iPhone and iPad with just one purchase.
Like the Instapaper web interface's Text option, the app downloads a mostly-text version of each page, using ideal formatting for maximum readability.
You don't need to zoom in to read the text. And you can't accidentally side-scroll when reading a long column.
Browse articles from friends and editors
Instapaper's Browse feature is even better in the app: you can browse your friends' Liked articles, daily selections from the best editors on the web, or any web page of your choice and save pages to read later directly from the app.
Many more great features, including:
- Adjustable fonts and text sizes
- Dark Mode for night reading
- Built-in English dictionary
- Syncs your position in each article between multiple iPhones and iPads
- Folders for organizing articles
- Scroll by full pages (pagination)
- Scroll by tilting (tilt scrolling)
- Lock rotation
- Download up to 500 articles at a time
