Instapaper hits Android!

If you have any experience with iOS, you may be familiar with the app called Instapaper. The developer of that application has long stated that he was only interested in iOS for development. The developer had a change of heart and Instapaper is now available for Android devices. Granted, the development of the Android app was farmed out.

If you are familiar with the application from the iPhone, Instapaper is an app that allows you to save web pages for reading later. The web pages are saved off-line and optimized for readability on the tablet or smartphone screen. That means you can grab some stories from some your favorite websites while you're at home, and then read them in office or you may not have access to data or Wi-Fi networks.

The core features of the app include the ability to save most web pages as text-only, stripping away the page layout. The fonts are adjustable along with text size, line spacing, and margins. The app also offers dark mode and brightness control for reading at night. The app is configured for automatic dark mode switching to change itself depending on the time of day. The app also offers rotation lock and allows you to share the stories you download with other people. The application is on Google Play right now in version 1.0 requires Android 2.2 or higher and costs $2.99.
