Don’t waste your money - I spent $30 expecting to have a wide variety of articles to read. Not only does this app only offer you a few articles that are pointless, the app does not even allow you to search anything. Don’t waste your money

Version 8.0
Review by jmatthiass

Finally!! With a few quirks - Firstly, Instapaper is one of my favorite apps of all time and has fundamentally changed (for the better) the way I consume articles on all my devices. And now there's a native macOS app! Yes! A couple of ugly quirks, though: Foremost, no share sheet support! I guess I'll have to keep Instapaper Save installed for now. Icon is big and sharp and doesn't fit Big Sur very well. Changing text width leads to different margin sizes for full screen and "normal" windows. Plenty of room on "normal" = no room on full screen when placed next to another full screen window.

Review by ginswizzle

Update broke share sheet - Edit: 1->3 stars: restarting iPhone and opening Instapaper fixed the share sheet. still expect paid service to release updates more than once over 6 months. This week’s update removed the icon from the system-wide share sheet. The prompt to save a copied URL when opening the app also rarely appears. The app was already abandoned - 6 months since last update - now it’s unusable! Who cares about running it on macOS!?!

Share extension? - Great work on the Mac app, but what happened to the Share Extension? I uninstalled "Instapaper Save" in favor of this app, but it doesn't include any capabilities to share into it, and now I can't reinstall Instapaper Save.

Latest update took away the Instapaper button from the share sheet in iOS. - The latest update took away the Instapaper button from the share sheet in iOS. This really hinders the usefulness of the app.
