This app is such a great idea but it absolutely ruins its best features. Speed Read and Speak allow you to quickly get through documents but it is impossible to make them start from a specific place in the text. This makes them basically useless if you need to interrupt them and come back to reading later. Why would you implement such great features and then make them essentially useless?

Love this app. I'm able to add anything I'd like to read via the app or my desktop plugin, and then refer to it later. this ability has greatly improved my personal organization and productivity. I'd recommend getting Instapaper across all of your devices; this way, you'll always have your reading materials handy.

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.
