Instapaper has been a staple of my daily routine for years now. Today brings version 4.0, which offers huge improvements both visually and in terms of functionality. I’ve been beta testing the app for a few weeks — it’s an excellent update. Creator Marco Arment talks about it in detail here.
The app is $4.99 (if you’re updating, it’s free) — well worth it — and comes with a new $2.99 subscription-based search option. Yes, you can finally search the content of each article you save, including the ones you archive. You also get access to search if you’re a subscriber (I’ve been a happily paying member for months).
Love some of the innovative ways Marco is thinking about making money. Also, the new icon is a huge upgrade. Download it for that, stay for the awesome app.
