PaperSpan user reviews :

This is very promising. We desperately need good development of Android read later apps. At the moment, it is missing pagination and capacity to export highlights. Let’s hope it improves.

Doesn’t share the articles, would share one article then immediately for other articles says ‘need internet connection’ while I’m connected to a strong network. Fix it, sharing is really difficult.

This app really fills a need for those like us that like to pull up a hundred articles to read on the bus but then run out of data!

Whenever I share an article it says it needs Internet to save..and doesn’t save…although I have full Internet access… It is a fantastic app and I want to move to it from pocket…hope the above bug is sorted in next update…

Reluctantly downloaded this app to replace Pocket since Pocket has terrible offline downloading issues on Android. I like to listen to my articles as well so I was happy to see this app had that functionality. Better still, you can even listen to articles from certain places by just tapping the text at the point to start. One feature I’d like to see is the option to adjust the read stored when listening but it’s a small issue and can be done in your system settings.

Great substitute to Pocket and Instapaper, as it provides all the basic features like highlighting and annotations, auto-categorising and offline viewing for free. The ad-free experience is a cherry on top. However, videos in portrait mode appear cropped in text view. Also, please add pagination for a better reading experience.

Wikipedia article is not getting saved properly. But happy with the app.

Works well, love the one tap save. One feature that’s super important for me is an option to always open the link in browser or related app (YouTube app for YouTube links for example). If that was added I’d use this so much. Thanks!
