Editors' Review

Instapaper captures all those articles you don't have time to read on your Android device and saves them so you can read them offline and, better yet, with no ads, comments, or other distractions. It's totally easy to use, too: Just share the article with Instapaper, open the app, select the title, and read it at your leisure.

Pros

Just what users want: In most cases, Instapaper saves the story and related images and links but not unwanted content like links, ads, and comments.

Black-and-white: Instapaper's text-heavy, newspaper-inspired interface and fonts is plain but clean and efficient. We actually found many stories far easier to read in Instapaper than their own sites.

Accurate capture: Instagram never failed to capture photos and links associated with stories we shared.

Cons

Small pics: Images were clear, but some were resized, and others didn't link to larger images like in the Web versions. All the text hyperlinks we tried worked fine, though.

Sponsorships: Sponsored ads usually aren't blocked, so they will appear in your Instapaper version.

Bottom Line

Instapaper is a great idea that has the potential to save you time and data charges, but it's also a handy way to keep track of the stories you want to read and, in many cases, get a better, more legible way to read them.
