There seems to be an issue when using the speak feature where it removes paragraphs and headings when it reads them aloud. I don't know if that's intentional, but I really hope not because I like to follow along in text when it's being read aloud. Aside from that, the app itself is very useful and I find it easy to read different articles I save with the clean design and other useful features.

So close to excellent; but the page scrolling to match text to speech has never really worked, and it loses my place in the current article when I close the app. It also won't handle pdfs well, and won't let me email text to my list. I'd love to be a premium subscriber, but the features are kind of ridiculously minimal and buggy, and have been for years with little improvement.

My favorite feature of Instapaper is the highlight feature. It turns (nearly) every web page into my own personal book/paper that I can highlight, mark up and save for later. I can integrate it into other apps so my highlights are saved there, too. I used to use Pocket for all my read later articles, but it's missing this feature (at least, it's not as useful). The one thing I miss about Pocket is that it always saves the url I bookmarked. Sometimes instapaper loses the url. Frustrating.
