Instapaper is a service that allows you to save things from the web to read later. It is available for the web through extensions, on iOS devices, as well as on Android devices. If you come across an article on the web that you would like to read later, simply save it to Instapaper. After that, you can highlight and save text from any articles, adjust the font settings to make it easier for you to read, share on various platforms like Twitter, Facebook, Pinboard and more, and archive them.
