Last week, we reported that that Readability, the popular text reflow service, is once again looking to release an iOS app. Well, the app has just gone live in the App Store and can be downloaded as a universal binary for iPhone and iPad for free. Readability for iOS turns any web page into a clean view for reading now or later on your iPhone, iPad or your desktop computer (using the free browser add-on) with seamless syncing of articles across all platforms.
Here is the official blog announcement:
Readability for iOS is the product of a collaboration between the Readability team and the talented designers and builders at Teehan+Lax. It also sports beautiful typography from none other than Hoefler & Frere-Jones.
We wanted to create something that makes it as easy as possible to queue up and take web articles anywhere you go on your iPhone or iPad. Our guiding principle was simple: get out of the reader’s way. We hope you like it.
Below is a complete list of features:
TURNS ANY WEB PAGE INTO A CLEAN, COMFORTABLE READING VIEW
Readability automatically turns web pages into a clean, elegant, single-column reading view. With beautiful typography provided by Hoefler & Frere-Jones, the reading experience in Readability is second-to-none.
READ ON YOUR TERMS – ANYTIME, ANYWHERE.
Too busy to read while on your web browser? Save any web page to Readability and it will be automatically saved on your web browser, iPhone or iPad. Once synced, your articles will be there for you – whether you’re online or offline.
A READING EXPERIENCE SECOND TO NONE.
Readability is all about making it easy for you to enjoy reading. You can customize the reading view by adjusting type size, contrast and margins to your liking.
SHARE WHAT YOU’RE READING.
Readability provides built-in native sharing support. You can post a favorite article along with your own comments on Facebook, Twitter or by email to your friends.
MANAGE YOUR ARTICLES WITH UNLIMITED STORAGE.
Users of Readability enjoy an unlimited, searchable archive that syncs on the web. As soon as you’re done reading an article, simply tap it to archive.
