Instapaper 6.0 Review


I realized that Instapaper works for me because its design and features accomplish an obvious but arduous task: they make words by others feel like something I want to read rather than an obligation or an unread badge that needs to be taken care of.

Making the mundane feel special. Creating an experience out of a few paragraphs of text. That's good design.
