Readability for Android Now Available



For those looking for a good web-page reader, consider an application which just launched exclusively (in the US, anyway) on the Amazon Appstore. The device turns web pages into easy-to-read formats so you can get past all the stuff you don’t care about. It saves you time, data (and, through extension, money), and more importantly, headaches. It’s free to download but you’ll have to load the Amazon Appstore on your phone. Those outside of the US can head to the Google Play Store for their download as Amazon Appstore is not currently available for you. [Amazon Appstore Link]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. That sucks, I would much rather download it from the Play Store.

    1. I dont see how this can even compare to read it later pro.

      1. Does read it later pro have a dark theme? 

        1. Yes, Read it Later Pro has a dark theme. (There is a little brightness icon under the fonts menu that switches it the background to black.)

          1. Thanks for letting me know. To be honest, with my GNex and it’s beautiful battery sucking screen, dark theme is a big one for me. It’s been the deciding factor for me with a couple of apps now, especially reading apps that will be using the screen a lot. 

  2. I use read it later pro all the time and have a huge list of reading; is readability somehow better than read it later? 

    1. If you have the pro then no, it’s more or less the same. 

      Readability(free) is better than Read It Later free

  3. In Play Store

    1. “This app is incompatible with all of your devices.”

      Unfortunately.  I hate to support the amazon store.

  4. This is nice, but Read It Later is much better integrated with everything else (and doesn’t seem to do any worse at re-rendering).

  5. Check out the app Spool. It’s really similar to Readability but it’s had an Android app for a while now. I use it all the time, but apparently I’m the only one who’s ever heard of it, unfortunately.

  6. Just use GWT. HTML5 needs to develop faster seriously.

  7. On first install, terrible impressions.  It is literally an iPhone app.  Menu key does nothing, you need to navigate to the settings icon.  iPhone interface elements (like on screen back button).  It’s really disappointing.  No thanks.  RIL Pro for me. I’ll check it out when they make an android app. There’s more to it than simply making an .apk.

  8. Is it just me, or is the browser in Readability incredibly fast?

  9. Terrible app. Keeps downloading a bunch of stuff in the background that you don’t need. Pops up at random times in the background to do a bunch of things I don’t need it to do. Why can’t it just act like a normal app, and load articles when I use it? And STFU when I’m not using it?
