  • 4. INVENIO ADVISORS, LLC Content Curation – Using Flipboard and Instapaper Thursday, October 10, 2013 Instapaper What does Instapaper do? Instapaper turns web content – articles, stories, posts, videos, and even long emails – into a great reading experience, anywhere, anytime. Over the course of your day, you'll encounter things you want to read later. With Instapaper, you simply push a button in your browser, or choose “send to Instapaper” in a linked mobile app. Instapaper then saves it for you, and makes it available in a beautiful, uncluttered, reading-optimized format on your mobile phone, your tablet, your Kindle, or your browser itself. Getting information into Instapaper (Excerpt from the Practically Efficient blog post) • The Read Later bookmarklet is the most well known way to save an article to Instapaper. It The default Send To bookmarklet sends pages to your Unread folder, but you can also get one for any specific folder. • I keep a "Send To" folder the bookmarks toolbar of every browser I use. I keep all of my Instapaper bookmarklets (and others) in that folder. • Many mobile apps offer an option for sending links to Instapaper. More often than not, I send articles to Instapaper rather than read them in the app where I caught them. Typically in an app that supports Instapaper, all you have to do is tap and hold a link to see the option to send to Instapaper. • Add your unique Read Later Instapaper email address to your email contacts so you can forward links you receive through email straight to your Unread items. Don’t let links sit in email. Your Read Later address will look something like readlater.gobbledegook@instapaper.com, and it can be found under Instapaper “How to Save” section of your personal Instapaper account. • Email links from from your iPhone or iPad when you encounter links in apps without an Instapaper option. Most apps support email. You can also email directly from Safari on your iOS device. • The subject line of the email you send to your Instapaper address will be the article title you see the next time you look at your Instapaper Unread folder. It’s totally editable too. General 1. App setup a. Install Follow Invenio Advisors Page - 4 -
