Readability is primarily a Read Mode App and not focused on saving the text. Readability is great, If you just want to read the text right now and are not interested in reading it later. Also Readability has shut down. When you visit the website it recommends you to download Mercury Reader.

Instapaper is primarily an text reader. If you primarily read text heavy content, Instapaper is the tool for you. Instapaper not only provides the most options for changing the font size, font style, and background. But also provides powerful foldering features to organize your content.

Pocket is for saving multi-media content. When you save content to Pocket, your saved content is automatically sorted according to its categories. One moment I’m saving blog posts and the next I’m saving videos. It’s great that all my bookmarks and managed from a single solution. Personally I use Pocket, because of the minimalist design.

I also recommend using LINER Highlights. While it’s great to save an entire blog post. Sometimes you just need a single sentence from an article. It’s hard to find the same sentence from a 3,000 word essay. Using LINER you can highlight the text and save the specific sentence.
