Instapaper has a very practical function considering the amount of information individuals encounter while using the internet, specifically due to the increased amount of sharing and linkage between people online, facilitated by factors such as social media and networking.It has become difficult for one to do all of his or her reading in one consecutive online session, and one needs to find a good time to read.

This application is useful for many different kinds of people, such as people who like to read and find information on the internet, but perhaps encounter the different articles or pages at inconvenient times.
