Reading List Migration

Chris Bowler is moving from Instapaper to Safari’s Reading List.

I thought the writing was on the wall for Instapaper…and maybe it is. Reading List is becoming everything that Instapaper is, minus any favoriting and other social features (that frankly, never really picked up in my usage of Instapaper anyway). But it’s also restricted to iOS devices and Macs, and that’s where Reading List fell short. I found myself saving long articles to Instapaper so I could have them on my Kindle for weekend reading. A lot of other stuff, short things that take maybe a minute to read, end up on Reading List.

Still, I do think it would be worth Apple’s time to make a dedicated reading list app.
