Editors' Review

Offering a variety of features that go beyond mere webpage saving, Instapaper for iOS helps you quickly save the online content you want to view or read for offline reading.

Pros

Customizable: Instapaper for iOS comes with brightness control and a dark mode that are helpful when reading content in dark areas. You can also easily change the font style, size, and even spacing.

Automatic syncing of Highlights: All the texts you highlight are automatically saved in your other mobile devices. Highlights are quickly created by selecting texts and choosing the "Highlight" option.

Built-in Web browser and more: The app has its own browsing capability for previewing links, so you don't have to open another app. It also offers additional features such as the ability to view articles shared by other Instapaper users on social media. Additionally, you can create an Instapaper account through the app, without having to open a Web browser.

Cons

Costly subscription-based functions: The app adds four more functions if you pay for a subscription: the ability to "send to Kindle," full text article search, the use of third-party apps, and an ambiguous "additional functionality on the Instapaper Web site." To emphasize, you need to pay just to do a text search for articles, as this is disappointingly not a core function of the app. Worse, subscriptions are only for definite periods, quarterly, semi-annually, or yearly.

Limited number of articles saved on a device: The app allows only up to 500 articles to be saved on your iPhone, iPod, or iPad. This somewhat compels you to pay for the subscription since there are no limits on the number of articles saved on your account on the Instapaper website.

Bottom Line

If you are only interested in saving a webpage for later offline viewing, iOS 7 Safari already has the solution you need -- you just have to tap on the "Share" button on Safari to find the "Add to Reading List" button next to "Bookmark." Consider Instapaper only if you need more advanced features.
