I used to be a VERY heavy user of Pocket and Instapaper. I got away from them and am starting to use them again. At the moment I don’t subscribe to either.
But I subscribe to both the WSJ and The Athletic. Of course when I try to save items from those sites to either app they end up not working because of course the apps saved an unauthenticated version of the article. I was /hoping/ that they would be saved as displayed on my current screen when I choose to save them for later.
Anyone else deal with this? I can’t possibly be the only one seeing this problem.
p.s. I did find this, but doesn’t seem too promising:
I believe Raindrop.io is just a bookmarking app. If the article you bookmarked is taken offline , then it would not be available. I use Instapaper now (previously on Pocket).
According to Instapaper blog , it saves articles offline on Mac. My understanding is that once you log in and go pass the paywall, whatever display on your browser will be sync to Instapaper. I was trying to search for clearer documentation on Instapaper but I think they stop selling this function as a premium feature. I get a feeling that they may stop offering in the future.
Alternatively, you can use web clipper from DEVONthink . This would be the safest as you can hold on to the files
