Simple bookmarking tool for saving full web pages for later reading!
Instapaperis one of the best known bookmarking applications in the world that also has the ability of saving the articles and webpages you have found for later use. But you are not only saving just a URL destination, short description and maybe a tag. No, Instapaperand its greatest competitor Pocket work on a principle of caching pages you have bookmarked, so that you can access them from any supported device you own (PC, Mac, iPhone, Ipad, Android, Kindle) where all bookmarks and all cached webpages will be perfectly synced.
By focusing itself on easy bookmark gathering, syncing of stored pages across supported devices and easy reading, Instapaper is not truly marketed to be your one and only bookmarking service. It is more oriented on the ability to quickly save interesting articles you find while browsing, read them when you find the time, and then archive or discard those articles. Save and read later!
Functions of Instapaper are very similar to Pocket (formerly known as “Read it Later”), in which they are both able to easily grab a URL of your newly discovered page, save it onto your account, download a copy of that page and sync it across all your supported devices for later use. However, both products are free, and offer great service to everyone who use them. One of the advantages that we saw with Instapaper is its ability to place bookmarks inside directories, which is a very useful feature that is not present on Pocket. Also, everything you save with Instapaper can be shared with your Evernote account!
