Instapaper down for over a Month

We look forward to having the same Instapaper service you know and love accessible in Europe in the very near future. Thanks for your patience.

Near future, eh? It‘s been more than a month, FYI.

I can’t believe that it takes Instapaper more than a full month to return to service if they really want to. I was never a fan of the acquisition by Pinterest and it seems that my initial skepticism was warranted.

Now Instapaper is just a small side-product that does not seem to get much attention any longer. I, for one, have given up on waiting for the service to return.

I haven’t finally decided about the replacement for Instapaper. And so my current approach for clutter-free reading stuff later consists of a mixture of using Pinboard in combination with Pinner/Pushpin, and the text extraction function in DEVONthink.
