instapaper.jpgPopular read-it-later app Instapaper has been named Apple’s App of the Week, and as a result, it is available for free for the first time since its initial 2010 release.

The app is designed to allow users to save and store articles for reading at a later time, stripping away unnecessary page clutter for an unhindered reading experience. Instapaper supports up to 500 articles on the iPad and the iPhone, and it includes an offline mode for reading in areas without cellular or Wi-Fi connectivity.

Instapaper is the simplest way to save and store articles for reading: offline, on-the-go, anytime, anywhere, perfectly formatted.

Instapaper for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch provides a mobile-optimized Text view that makes reading Internet content a clean and uncluttered experience.

Instapaper also integrates with more than 150 other apps, which support saving content within the Instapaper app, and it includes features like adjustable fonts and text sizes, dark modes, brightness control, filters, and dictionary and Wikipedia integration.

Earlier this year, Instapaper developer Marco Arment sold a majority stake of the app to Betaworks, the company that owns Bitly, Digg, and Socialflow.

Instapaper will be free for one week and can be downloaded from the App Store. [Direct Link]

This has been one of my favorite iPad apps for a long time. Nice to see it free for a while.
Am I the only one who doesn’t “get” Instapaper? Between Flipboard and Safari’s built-in reading list, what more does Instapaper get me?

Nice that it’s free, though!

I’m excited to try out Instapaper, but reading list DOES save webpages for offline viewing and syncs between iOS devices.

I’m curious to see what Instapaper can add to that.

Safari’s Reading List feature does offer offline viewing…

    I think that everything posted was actually very logical.
    But, consider this, suppose you were to create a killer headline?
    I ain’t suggesting your content is not good, but suppose you added a title
    that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean ‘Instapaper’ Named
    App of the Week, Available for Free [iOS Blog] | Mo Ghaoui, Personal Blog is kinda vanilla.
    You could look at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they write post titles to get people to click.
    You might add a video or a picture or two to get people interested about everything’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it might make your posts a little bit more interesting.
