Popular Instapaper app for offline reading updated with support for Handoff & more

Instapaper, the handy app that lets you grab content from the web and other apps for offline reading later, has been updated with support for the Handoff feature introduced as part of iOS 8.

Device handoff support: Start reading on one device, and pick up exactly where you left off on another device!

Version 6.1 of the app also has an improved save function, allowing you to save content directly to a particular folder, and allows you to enable a counter which displays a badge with the number of saved articles when viewing the app’s icon on the homescreen.

Instapaper is a free app, but saving content from compatible third-party apps requires a premium subscription costing $29.99 a year or $2.99 a month.
