Instapaper part 2: The idea and the mastermind.

20 Nov

Instapaper is an online application that was created in January 2008 by Marco Arment. Although starting up with a small number of users, that number greatly increased later that year with the development of the App Store for iPhones, and later iPads. According to their website, Instapaper currently has around one million user accounts.

Instapaper is funded solely by the creator, and makes a profit from the iPhone app, advertisements on the website, and optional user subscriptions of $1per month.

More to come…
