Readability is a news feed, reader and browser, all-in-one
Readability web version has been working for a while now, as well as its iOS version. Due to its success, its developers decide the break into the Android Market. What does it do? It turns any web page into a clean-view customized by yourself, for reading now or later on your computer or Android device. The full experience required install the add-on for your web-browser. It allows you to change the view of your browser for a kinder reading, save it to read it later (it automatically sync with your mobile devices) or even send it to your Kindle (via your Kindle account).
Unlike other reader, Readability is also a browser. What does it mean? You can navigate your favorite news sites from the app and after choosing and article you want to read press on "read it now" or "read it later". Then, you'll be able to read it in a kinder layout going back home or even when you get home, in your tablet or laptop (from the web version). You can read it offline, of course.
In a nutshell, Readability works like other "Read it Later" apps, however, it adds three new features: a) send it to Kindle; b) browser navigation; c) Kinder (and customizable) layout for reading. What's more, its minimalist user-friendly interface makes things easier and its transitions effects makes it cuter. We've just found two catches: it's not original, there are well-known app that performs and, in the other hand, it doesn't integrate RSS Feeds. It's annoying switching from RSS Readers to Read-it-later or browser apps. Let's integrate! Anyway, highly recommendable.

This app was a disappointment from the start. Never got to read anything because the reading list never updated despite adding links from both my phone and my desktop. Uninstalling this waste of ones and zeroes after 10 minutes.
But syncing articles from my laptop to my mobile device is kinda slow. Also it doesn't save all the photos on the articles. Some photos are missing. What I like about it is it works wonders on the desktop.
it takes quite some time to view saved article in the app.while it was already there on the web.but thanks for a non intrusive app.I switched to your service because your competitor trying become a social network with a very intrusive apk.
It Hardly Crashes! Loved this App.
There are articles on the web that I need reading but wanted to read them at a later time. More often, when I get to find time in places where there's no wifi. Fonts are great as well. So very reader friendly. I'm a fan!
This service doors an awesome job cleaning up webpages but the so takes days to sync my saved articles.
I can't even sign up. Keep asking me to sign up with unique name and password. Well u know wat? Ive been signing up thousands of apps but have no problems. But it's good too now I can just uninstall this stupid app
