Today, we’re happy to announce that we’ve shipped text highlighting across all of our platforms — iOS, Android, and web! Now you can just select some text and choose the “Highlight” option to save those great quotes you find while reading.
In true Instapaper fashion, your highlights are seamlessly synced across all of your devices. We’ve also added the option for you to post automatically your highlights to your linked accounts.
You get five free highlights per month if you haven’t subscribed. Highlighting is supported in the API. Two features I hope they will add are:
- More control over the background color (in the article reader and browser), since iOS doesn’t support Flux.
- Automatic retries for articles that haven’t been downloaded. I waste so much time tapping individual articles that can’t be read.
