Read-it-later app Instapaper today announced that it is relaunching "Instapaper Premium" as part of the company's new initiative that's looking towards "the next ten years of Instapaper and beyond." Instapaper is hoping to generate revenue after it became an independent company last month through a deal with parent company Pinterest.
Instapaper Premium costs $2.99/month or $29.99/year and offers full text search for all articles, unlimited notes, text-to-speech playlists on mobile, speed reading, an ad-free website, and a "send to kindle" feature. The company ensures that there will still be a non-Premium version of Instapaper and these users "will continue with a standard free account without access to Premium features."
In addition to getting access to Premium features, your Instapaper Premium subscription will help ensure that we can continue developing and operating Instapaper. Our goal is to build a long-term sustainable product and business, without venture capital, and we need your help to achieve that goal.
In addition to the subscription news, the company announced that it is bringing Instapaper back to users in the European Union. Just over two months ago, Instapaper temporarily suspended user access to its service across Europe as it faced issues implementing the EU's GDPR laws.
Those interested can sign up for Instapaper Premium on the company's website.

Much less drama, no clickbait, more insight, and due to limited space it contains much relevant stuff.
Since I switched back to the actual newspaper my life has changed for the better.
Pocket, which I use instead, also connects quite seamlessly to an ereader, meaning that I can queue up however many long articles I want from whatever sources I want, pick up the reader and hop on my plane knowing I've got everything on one dedicated reading device.
I moved to Pocket years ago (just post Marco Arment) and haven't looked back.
Great to have a full Pocket sync on my Kobo reader as well.
Apple News does everything I need.
