Eight years using Instapaper

Yesterday, I was reading “The best read-it-later service” by The Sweet Setup, and this stood out to me:

In September 2014, Instapaper announced that the app would switch to a freemium model, with most basic functionality offered in a free version, but several new premium options available for a subscription fee of $3 a month or $30 a year. Customers who’d already been subscribing for $1 a month were grandfathered into the new plan.

To my archives!

I haven’t tried or considered other read-it-later services (like Pocket and Readability) because Instapaper has never let me down.1 🙂

Thank you, Marco, and (now) Betaworks. I look forward to many more years!


  1. I searched my archives to make sure I didn’t rant about Instapaper. ;)
