<h4>🔍 Overview<h4>

Powered by the Full-Text RSS API, Springboard is the most comprehensive, customizable, and effective shortcut to bypass paywalls and access restricted content online! Much like ad blockers, bypass (or "article extraction") tools are now a necessity as online news & media outlets continue to lock more and more content behind paywalls.

How to Use Springboard 

**📝 Note: Springboard requires an 🔑 API key to use**

Springboard is run from the share sheet in Safari (or your preferred browser). When you hit a paywall, simply tap the share sheet icon at the bottom of the screen and select 'Springboard' from the menu.

**Full instructions can be found here**


🎨 Custom Pages

With the release of Springboard v2.0.0, you can now customize the page when viewing an article in the app. Watch the video below to learn how!
