    Default Instapaper VS Pocket?

    I usually use pocket as my read it later source, but honestly i hate the icon on the iPhone and think it ugly, just downloaded Instapaper..

    Which one do you use? And which do you like more?

    I never quite warmed up to using Pocket, but I did use Instapaper a lot and loved it, but then a while back it was having parsing problems so I've since switch to using Readability and have been now for probably a year or so. It's all I need.

    I'm usually an Instapaper user. I've used it the longest, and I appreciate that I can limit how many articles are stored on the iDevices; pocket has no such limit, and I find its database can grow wild if you don't read/delete/archive articles frequently (had it up to around 600MB without really even thinking about it). However, iMore.com and Instapaper have been troublesome for me for a while now. It just doesn't parse/download at least half the articles I save there. So Pocket has been better in terms of actually getting articles parsed/downloaded, but I prefer the look/feel/operation of Instapaper (if only because of familiarity).

    I've tried both of those apps and came to the conclusion that "Reading list" in Safari was just enough for my need. I save the article I want to read later into the reading list. When off connection I easily access it within safari.

    Pocket, mostly because it's future proof.

    Pocket. I've used it for a long time. It does what I need and does it well. Have not tried instapaper extensively so I can't say anything other than it looks nice.
