Getting started with InstaFetch

Collecting links

There are two ways in which you can save your links — using your computer or your smartphone.

Saving links using a computer Instapaper service provides you with a so called bookmarklet, which you can drag and drop onto your favorites toolbar in your browser. Then, when you stumble upon a web page, that you would like to read, but you don't have the time for this at the moment, all you have to do is click this "Read Later" bookmarklet and the URL address of the page will be saved in Instapaper.

Saving links using a smartphone For saving links with your smartphone, you use standard sharing mechanisms available on every Android-enabled device. That is, whenever you surf the Internet using your mobile browser, you can select the "Share page" option from the menu. If InstaFetch is installed on your device, there will be an option named "Add to InstaFetch" in this sharing menu. Selecting it will save the URL address of the page that is currently loaded.


Synchronizing Instapaper with InstaFetch From the application stand point, it's irrelevant whether you save a link using your computer or your smartphone. InstaFetch supports two-way synchronization, which takes care of maintaining all of your links both in Instapaper and on your device.

Additionally, during synchronization InstaFetch downloads whole articles to your device, so that you can read them while you're disconnected from the Internet.

Other features

The features I described above are just basics, which should help you get started with InstaFetch. Should you like the application, you'll see that there's much more to discover. I encourage you to do so!
