iOS/Android: Bookmark-and-read-later tool Instapaper updated with quite a few new features today. It now includes text-to-speech functionality, user profiles and some nifty goodies for iOS 8 users.
The new update includes:
- The app is now free to download (with the premium subscription costing $US2.99/month or $US29.99/year)
- The ability to save to Instapaper from any app in iOS 8
- Your most recently saved articles shown in iOS’ “Today” section of the notification drawer
- A redesign of the “Browse” section, combining streams from The Feature, Daily, and Friends into a single feed
- User profiles, give you easy access to your liked articles and connections (and can be set to public or private)
- Text-to-speech, so your phone or tablet can read your articles to you. Playlists, however, are a premium feature only.
Note that if you’re already a premium subscriber, you’ll be grandfathered in at your current price, and those who paid to download the app will receive a free month of premium. Hit the link to read more about the new features.
