Footnote Preview

Do you read a lot of articles that normally include footnotes, but you get tired of always scrolling to check them? Now you only need to hover over the footnote to see a preview of it

Select & Tweet

Sometimes you're reading an article, and find an amazing little piece of wisdom in it. You want to share it on Twitter, but it takes time. Well, you'll no longer have that problem. Just select the text, and share!

Removed from extension since Substack has now implemented this a core functionality.

Reddit Search

A great way to engage with your readers is to know where they're talking about you. If done well, Reddit can be a great place to do so. Use this tool to find posts or comments where your Substack publication is mentioned.

Instagram Share

Do you engage with your audience on Instagram, but find that posting a screenshot of your publication just doesn't cut it? Then this feature is for you. Easily share your post on Instagram. Just insert your post URL, download the generated image, and post it to Instagram!
