TextOnly Reader Pro


TextOnly Reader Pro's review


TextOnly is a browser that only displays readable content from websites

  • Fast navigation
  • Strips out unwanted visual content (like ads)
  • Less data usage
  • Needs more options
  • Layout should be enhanced
  • We expected it even faster

"Were you looking for real fast navigation?"

First off, it should to be said that, although this may seem a RSS reader, it's not. Most of people will use it just for reading blogs and articles. However, it overtakes a RSS reader: this is a browser that doesn't load pictures in order to make reading easier and navigating much faster.

TextOnly speeds up your daily reading of articles. Since it doesn't load any type of image, it strips out any intrusive content like ADS, CSS, sidebar or header. What's more, for those worried about data usage, it barely uses a few KB for each page.

You can access webs by web URL , RSS or Twitter URL. Tweets, articles and post are listed in a simple scrollable format. You can bookmark websites or articles for an easy access.

The main catch is that you can just "Go" to the URL or "Bookmark". There are no options like "Share", "Full Screen" "Downloads tab", "Data backup" and many other features that other browsers contain. The UI is simple and "enhanceable".

Navigation is really fast, that's a fact. However, we expected it even faster since it displays just readable content. Anyway, it's a good choice for those who are always reading articles from newspapers or blogs. This is the browser for those who put fast navigation before scenery.
