Instapaper 5.2

Instapaper, an online bookmarking service, announced today that it’s going independent after being acquired by Pinterest two years ago. The service is one of the first read-it-later apps that allows users to save articles and web pages to read offline on tablets, phones, and even on Kindles and other E Ink devices.

The service isn’t going to look any different, Instapaper’s team said in a press release today. The same people who have been working on Instapaper will continue to do so as they move to operating on their own. “We plan to continue offering a robust service that focuses on readers and the reading experience for the foreseeable future,” the company said.

Note, however, that the service is still unavailable in Europe as its privacy policy isn’t compliant to the new GDPR rules put in place in May.
