Instapaper’s decided to kill off its $US29.99 ($39)/year Instapaper Premium subscription service, effectively making all those paid features available to all users.
While Instapaper’s always been free, its Premium subscription tucked a few of its best features behind a paywall. This included:
- An ad-free Instapaper website
- Full-text search for all articles
- Unlimited Notes
- Text-to-speech playlists
- Unlimited speed reading
- “Send to Kindle” via bookmarklet and mobile apps
- Kindle Digests of up to 50 articles
Now, all those features are available to all, which for many might put Instapaper ahead of its big rival, Pocket. If you’re a Premium subscriber, Instapaper is sending out prorated refunds, so check your email for more info.
