Instapaper premium is now free for everyone on iOS, android, kindle and on the website

Just received an email from instapaper, that their premium service is now free for everyone.

The following email:

"We're thrilled to announce that, as of today, we're opening up Instapaper Premium for all of our users, free of charge.

As a current user of the free Instapaper, this means you'll now have access to:

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
An ad-free Instapaper website

Before, some of our greatest features were limited to Instapaper Premium subscribers. Now that we're better resourced, we're able to offer everyone the best version of Instapaper. You'll continue to have an ad-free Instapaper app experience, and we're eliminating ads on the web entirely".

Also, for existing premium users, the instapaper team will offer prorated refunds for your current subscription and you'll no longer be billed for instapaper premium.

I was considering paying because it's so useful for sending articles to Kindle to support them

Nice to have the option to send individual articles now as well as the compiled issues.

i used to use this then moved to Pocket... hmmm will have look, maybe they have improved the front end.

Read It Later, which became Pocket, has always been my preference. Any other's choices?

Great just registered and tied it in to my Flipboard app

Another big fan of Pocket and been using it for ages but will give Insta premium a try

Nope -- that does not explain what this app(?) is for or what it does. I'll have to try googling for an answer.

Can't see it on kindle store!?

its not a kindle app
but what you can do is send articles to your kindle address at an alocated time i.e. 7pm every day
alternatively you can push any articles (individually/all) as an ebook from the settings page (i have saved that page and created an app shortcut on my phone, so one click will push my articles over to my kindle)

i did use pocket, but that didn't parse every article from web pages from my kobo e reader (that has intergrated software) but even on their website it would categorise articles it couldn't parse in a seperate list.... so far instapaper has had no issues.

Having read it I figured out what it's for.

Been using both Instapaper and Pocket for over a year on a daily basis. Pocket by far is more stable. Instapaper is decent, but it screws stuff up frequently. For instance short urls or twitter urls (stuff you need to login to) etc, really do not work well at all. I've never had a single fault with Pocket. I've used both apps in their free incarnation.
