This week my "Sweet TEK" (pick of the week) was Instapaper for iOS.

Instapaper is one of the original "Read Later" services for iOS. I recently switched from Pocket as of just a couple weeks ago as I went through a spring-cleaning ritual on my phone. Why the switch? There are a number of reasons.

  • The Aesthetics
  • Speed Reading Functionality (premium feature)
  • Full Text Search (premium feature)
  • Note-Taking
  • Costs Less (Premium Memberships run $2 less a month than that of a Premium Membership from Pocket)

These reasons among others helped persuade me to rethink not only how I save links for later reading but how I process the information and what I do with the information moving forward. I think Instapaper and me have a future together. You can check out Instapaper for free here or look into a Premium service if you want the extras. Let me know what you think. I look forward to your feedback.
