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 started using Instapaper since January 28, 2008 — the first day it was announced by Marco Arment.
- I’ve been using Instapaper 8 years, 23 days, and counting.
- Since October 4, 2010, I’ve been paying $1/month ($3 every three months) for Instapaper Premium. I dig it for Highlights.
Thank you, Marco, and (now) Betaworks. I look forward to many more years!
- I searched my archives to make sure I didn’t rant about Instapaper. ;) ↩
