Instapaper Goes All Free »

Instapaper:

Today we’re making Instapaper Premium available to all Instapaper users, free of charge. Instapaper Premium is the best way to experience all that Instapaper has to offer, and we’re excited to open it up to everyone.

This means that all users will get what was used to be reserved for paying customers:

  • 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

I’ve been paying for Instapaper Premium for years. I’ve seen some concern from users that this is a bad sign that the service is going to be integrated into Pinterest at some point. I sure hope that doesn’t happen; I love Instapaper as much today as I did five years ago.
