App worked great before. Now after the update I get an 'error refreshing content list'. I do have a paid subscription and I'm on a Lumia 928.

Instapaper is a horrible service :-(

I have downloaded this application, then created an account with them and it turns out that unlike most of the reading list clients out there, you need to pay (PAY) for a monthly subscription with them. In other words, you need to pay and loose money just so you have a place to store web articles that you don't have time to read. Use the windows reading list. All you need is a Microsoft account, which is free to create, and you need to find interesting things to read. Thank you.

Mediocre at best

This app has lots of issues. Not a polished product at all. Very limited font selection and viewing options. Does not remember your positing in an article. Reading options are not saved universally. No good fonts. The list goes on and on needs a lot more work.

Love it - tried several, but this had the best reading view in my opinion. Wish it had ability to page instead of just scroll, but that's my only complaint. Great experience.

A nicely thought out Instapaper app. Just wish I could scroll to the top of an article quickly and see the URL it came from.

Broken for me

Claims I don't have a subscription to Instapaper and I do, and the feedback and support Settings link gives an error message so I can't even seek help from the publisher. FAIL.

Adequate, but has a few bugs to work out...

Adequate, but buggy. For example, add a new folder from the app. When you go to move an item into the new folder, the new folder has not yet been added to the popup list...you have to restart the app to get it to appear. Also, when viewed in fill mode alongside a snapped app, the columns don't break properly and one gets cut off, without a good way to slide it into view. Code in blog posts also is a bit messy, thou it may be hard to find a middle ground for doing that right.

Useful App and Responsive Developer

The app is very useful in how I utilize Instapaper, especially the ability to share links via the charm and direct it to specific folders in my Instapaper account. I ran into a display problem one of my machines and the developer was extremely responsive and helpful in figuring out the issue (which turned out to not be a Stacks problem at all).

Great app for Instapaper

Longtime user of Stacks on my Windows Phone, and the developer has done a great job implementing the app for Windows 8. It works great on both my laptop and my Surface.

Great app

Stacks combined with Instapaper it's the best way to select articles for keeping, for reading later, for sharing as well as a great reading experience cross devices.
