Readability, an excellent alternative to Instapaper, is now free to use. The service is similar to Safari’s built-in Reader mode, which provides a clutter-free reading environment, but is far more useful due to the cross-platform support and sharing options. The mobile website has been improved with fancy HTML5 features, and a full-featured iOS application is awaiting approval. Using the lovely set of browser extensions, it is possible to open an article directly in Readability or just save it for later reading on your computer or mobile device.
Readability is on its way to the iTunes App Store. Our new apps for the iPhone and iPad are free and undeniably beautiful. We’ve partnered with the design wizards at Teehan+Lax to deliver a simple, elegant experience featuring exclusive typography from some of the best in type: Hoefler & Frere-Jones. There’s never been a better way to read the web on iOS. Readability for iOS is submitted and awaiting approval from Apple.
