Instapaper is going independent

Today, we’re announcing that Pinterest has entered into an agreement to transfer ownership of Instapaper to Instant Paper, Inc., a new company owned and operated by the same people who’ve been working on Instapaper since it was sold to betaworks by Marco Arment in 2013.

Instapaper is probably the most continually installed app on my iPhone. I bought the original iPad daydreaming about using it. My saved for later articles directly represents my interests, intentions and state of mind throughout the years. I’ve gone months without opening it and hours with only it open.

Right now it shares an uncomfortable balance with Safari’s Reading list — but if I want to highlight and take notes, it’s what I use to export the notes in Markdown to Day One.

Instapaper is an App which I have bought, subscribed, abandoned and reinstalled. It’s an App I care about and I’m hopeful this is good news.
