Instapaper adds iPad multitasking, picture-in-picture video support

Read-it-later service Instapaper has reached version 7, adding several new features, including compatibility with iOS 9. New features include support for iOS 9's new iPad multitasking features, along with support for picture-in-picture video for YouTube and Vimeo saves.

Here are the big changes in Instapaper 7:

  • Article rows now include image thumbnails! If images aren't your thing, turn them off in Settings for the classic Instapaper look.
  • Added support for iPad multitasking so you can run Instapaper alongside other apps.
  • Apple's new system font, San Francisco, is now an available font choice.
  • Text-to-speech will automatically use the high-quality American-English Alex voice if it is downloaded and the article is in English.
  • Picture-in-picture video is now supported for YouTube and Vimeo saves.
  • Redesigned iPad grid and row cells for better multitasking support.
  • The navigation menu now slides over the article list instead of appearing from under it.

Instapaper 7 is available from the App Store right now.
