If you’re like me, you’ll stumble across all types of interesting articles online that you just don’t have time to read right now, during your work day. Also, if you’re like me, you spend more of your leisure time surfing the web on a mobile device, rather than sitting in your living room with your laptop. What a great time to catch up on those articles you flagged from earlier in the week, right? Enter: Instapaper.
What is Instapaper?
Instapaper is an easy to use app for the iPhone and iPad that allows you to read an article you found earlier, when you have time to. One of the best features of the Instapaper app is that it formats the content of the article in plain text, for your device, eliminating zooming and side-scrolling.
To use Instapaper, there are 4 basic steps.
- Register for a FREE account at their website.
- Add their Read Later bookmark to your work computer’s web browser.
- When you find something you want to read, click Read Later.
- Grab the iPhone app and access your articles when you have time.
Your bookmarked articles can also be accessed and organized by logging into your Instapaper account.
Very simple, but useful app if you’re a sponge, with no time to absorb all the information staring you in the face.
