Instapaper Is Going Independent

Instapaper (Hacker News):

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.

Marco Arment:

I bet this is very good news for the future of Instapaper.

Kenneth Verburg:

No mention of GDPR support and EU users still blocked :(

Previously: Pinterest Acquires Instapaper.

Update (2018-07-17): Alex Heath:

The two employees Pinterest brought on from the Instapaper acquisition will continue working at Pinterest and run Instapaper independently on the side.

Nick Heer:

I don’t think it’s a great sign when a product is transferred from an official offering to something akin to a hobby.
