Instapaper Resumes Service in EU and Relaunches Premium Subscription

Instapaper, the insanely popular and feature-rich “read later” service has today announced that it is relaunching its ‘Premium’ offering. The service was created by Marco Arment around 10 years ago and he sold it to Betaworks before it was later acquired by Pinterest in 2016. However, as GDPR came into effect a few months ago, the service went completely dark for users in the European Union and there was no clear communication from the company when it would be back.

Surprisingly enough, Instapaper announced last month that it was going independent and would now be “owned and operated by the same people who’ve been working on Instapaper since it was sold to Betaworks by Marco Arment in 2013”.

Today, Instapaper is relaunching its ‘Premium‘ offering at $2.99/month or $29.99/year and is also resuming service to users in the European Union.

Over the past two months we have taken a number of actions to address the General Data Protection Regulation, and we are happy to announce our return to the European Union.

We are very sorry for the extended downtime and, as a token of our apology, we are giving six months of Instapaper Premium to all EU users affected by the outage.

Unfortunately for Instapaper, users who were left out in the dark don’t seem to be pleased in the comments.
