Instapaper has just received another significant update as a follow-up to its previous major update in September.
On the day iOS 8 was officially launched, Instapaper was updated to version 6.0 with new features for the operating system. These most notably included a share extension for saving to Instapaper directly from other apps.
Now, Instapaper has been updated to version 6.1 with improvements to the app’s share extension. The new Instapaper share extension features an unobtrusive overlay and a new design that’s in line with the app’s current branding. Also, it now allows you to move an article into a folder after saving it. Moreover, it supports offline saving.
Along with the usual bug fixes and minor improvements, Instapaper 6.1 also includes support for unread counts indicating the number of articles saved in “Home” and Handoff for picking up your reading where you left off across your Apple devices.
Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 8.0 or later, Instapaper 6.1 is available now on the App Store for free on the App Store, with in-app purchases offered for accessing a subscription for premium features.
