As it turns out, this duel is more about user preference than which app is better. Instapaper sports a clean, newspaper-like look that filters out ads, video and images. If you prefer reading text without distraction, this is your app. Pocket, on the other hand, displays images like a proud parent and flaunts colors behind bouncy animations. If you prefer the full multimedia experience, you’ll like Pocket. Pocket also offers tagging, which some may prefer to Instapaper’s organizing by folder. Each comes in a free version, which is more than adequate for most users. Bottom line? Pocket is best for multimedia, Instapaper for pure reading. Lifehacker, 01.31.16
