    Yes, the app Instapaper is a simple tool which allows you to save web pages for further readings. The app provides some core features. The app saves most web pages as text only. Another feature is that the app provides you with a distraction free reading platform. Another important feature provided by the app is that you will be able to edit the font, text sizes and also line spacing on the pages saved. It also has a unique feature of dark mode and brightness control for night reading. It also offers rotation lock for trouble free reading.

    Hello Guest,
    I would like to tell you that your inbuilt phone browser can be used to save the webpages. But if you are intersted in knowing about other apps available on playstore for doing the same, then some of them are- Opera Mini, Boat, UC Web, SkyFire, Ninesky etc. You can choose from these browsers as you like. Thank You..! :-)
