How do I get started if I don't have an Instapaper account?

First, if you don't have an account and don't know what Instapaper is, you should skim through Instapaper's FAQ. After you're done, you can either create an account there or directly inside InstaFetch.

To create a new Instapaper account inside InstaFetch, go to Settings > Create account and enter desired Instapaper username or your e-mail address. Password is optional. After these steps, whenever you encounter a web page that you don't have the time to read but want to read later, in your mobile browser select Menu > More > Share page > Add to InstaFetch. The link to the page will be saved to your account on Instapaper. Then you can use Menu > Sync (inside InstaFetch) to download saved pages for offline reading.
