Sites We Like: Instapaper, Radar, and How to use curly quotes

School will be back in session before you know it—and we’ve got you covered with a few nifty tools in this week’s Sites We Like.


Got a lot of reading to do? Whether you’re browsing the internet for research or just for fun, Instapaper helps you manage your ongoing reading list on whichever device is handy at the moment. FF Tisa makes for an appropriately bookish logo typeface, while text on the site is in clear, unobtrusive Adelle Sans.

Radar website

Radar‘s concise tagline, “Keep the things that matter on your Radar,” appears warm and inviting when set in the generous curves of Jubilat. For an app that promises “no judgement” when it comes to task reminders, this relaxed tone feels just right.


The website of developer Chris Bracco is full of useful information, and we especially like this walkthrough of how (and when) to use curly quotes on different operating systems—advice that’s sure to help your written reports shine. Headings are strikingly set in Adonis with the body text in Franklin Gothic URW.

That’s it for this week’s sites; study hard, and let us know about sites you like in the comments!

  1. Thanks for linking to my article! FYI I refreshed the heading fonts to Kepler Std Semicondensed 🙂
