    "Read cutely your Instapapers"

    Given that an official Instapaper reading app is still missing on Google Play, there are coming up some apps that want to fill that need. Papermill is one of them, one of the best.

    If you don't know what Instapaper is, let's say that it's a "read it later"-like service, that's it, it allows you save your browser bookmarks to a reading list accessible whenever you want. What's more, it offers an optimized reading view that removes all the not-needed elements (just text and images in a good-looking layout). Of course, you to subscribe Instapaper first from its website ( Thanks to apps like Papermill you can read it also from your mobile device even offline. It syncs your reading list to your phone, which is quite useful to clear your reading list when you have break-time (like when waiting the bus).

    Papermill is set in Holo-layout, that's it, ICS 4.0 blue and black layout. It offers all the features of the web version: sync to read offline, customizable layout, font size, only text, tags, archive... and many more.

    Main catch? The price (£2.49) that plus Instapaper paid subscription makes it all quite expensive. Anyway, if you're a dedicated Instapaper user and you own an Android, you can fully enjoy it thanks to Papermill, probably the best Instapaper reader app that you'll find on Google Play so far.. Recommendable.
