12 Apps of Christmas: Instapaper

Welcome to our countdown to Christmas!

From now until the end of semester we’ll be posting about a different app every weekday. The apps have been selected from thousands that are available and are ones that you might find useful for study, revision or just student life in general.

If you have an app that you think we should feature let us know – otherwise we’ll suggest ones that we think you might like to take a look at.

Come back and investigate what’s new every day, or save the webpages to look at later using our first app!


instapaperInstapaper allows you to save webpages from your computer or mobile device to read offline later. It’s available as a browser bookmark, Chrome extension and app for Android and iOS.
