Review from A Google User
Amazing The new Instapaper has added all the features that people have been complaining about in the comments section. Now it gives the feel that I once had on my iPad. It's also fixed this syncing issue I had with spark notes. Overall, I can't complain.
The text to speech is slightly choppy And by that I mean it is slightly choppy in relation to Pocket, a similar app. The layout is definitely for a more bold, simple view so that is more a matter of taste. It is simple and easy to figure out with all the main buttons in plain view.
It's just ok This app is probably the best on Android but certainly not on iOS where there're a lot better. There's no way to adjust time between sentences and there's little to no gap between sentences which makes for a rushed experience. Also it reads all the crapy like htmls. It's not bad but could be a lot better.
So close, but a couple key things are sullying an otherwise stellar experience. First, search is still awful. That's a dealbreaker for some, but not for others, but either way, it's by far Instapaper's biggest flaw. Second, the Tweetshot capability simply isn't working for me (the icon doesn't appear at all).
Wow, 4.2 broke a bunch of things. The brightness won't stick. You have to set it again for each article you read. The theme settings won't save. Every time you restart the app, the theme reverts to the default. Good reason to cancel my Instapaper subscription and switch to Pocket.
Need more content Ys... its really good job and amazing features. Hope I will get soon more content also more features. tnx team.
Speed Reading Enjoying the speed reading function. Could do with longer pauses after commas and sentences. Perhaps this could be configurable.
