As someone who moved over from Pocket, this is definitely a lot better. A nice and elegant interface, turns almost all articles into a simple, magazine-like layout, absolutely no problem with offline viewing or when my connection is affected by signal loss (unlike Pocket which always erases saved articles and attempts to download newer versions when it detects my data is switched on), I can't imagine switching to another app. I took one star off because there should be a clearer indicator for which articles haven't finished downloading yet. Quite often I'd walk out of the house and find that an article isn't ready to be opened yet even though I already refreshed my article list. Also, when scrolling back up within an article, it would be good if the top menu automatically reappears like in many modern apps these days, instead of having to tap the screen.
I used to love Instapaper, but it's been clear for some time now that Android is on the back-burner when it comes to development, if it's on the list anywhere at all. It got frustrating when about every other article I tried to tap on would load with a blank page — now, on my tablet, we've just gone the route of every single article telling me the page is unavailable in reading mode, and would I like to open it in the browser? Yes, I will, thanks. And I don't need Instapaper for that. Even the free premium service isn't worth it - now, if you have the app, switch to another app and switch back, it crashes. Stick with Pocket.
5 ⭐'s for the app, one star for stability. The app keeps crashing on startup on my OnePlus 3 running Android 7.0, even after reinstalling. I'll try Pocket until they improve the reliability. Unless Pocket turns out to be awesome, then nevermind. 😁
Quite pleased. I take the subway everyday, wonderful to read saved articles when I have no other access. I used to be a fan of Pocket but it kept overheating my phone until I was forced to uninstall.
Pagination has been broken for months Text doesn't take up the full screen, the app skips pages, do you test features against modem os versions?
Crashes Love this app. Have had it for some time. Although, lately, it keeps crashing on open. ??? Please create a fix for this. I use a Galaxy Note 5.
