Having a lot of unread articles in your Home folder can present a strong mental hurdle against reading any, or even opening the app.
The new ‘expire old posts‘ feature helps by automatically moving old articles out of sight – helping reduce the stress of encountering too many unread articles when you open Instapaper.
When using Instapaper on Chrome, the articles in expired folder do not count towards unread articles count. Nor is the count of unread articles in this folder displayed.
You may use the settings on options page to manage days before articles are expired.
(Default is 90 days – approx 3 months)
Other minor update
When moving an article to another folder on Instapaper.com, selecting a folder using keyboard (
down keys) will also scroll the selected folder into view.
