Last week I wrote this post on how many of us are using tablets as reading/consuming devices on the move and leaving our laptops at home. Readability is making it really easy for me to save articles to read later on the train.
What does it do?
You can save links to your reading list or send them to your Kindle – “Read Later”. You can also change the font size etc. to make a web page easier to read – “Read now”.
How does it work?
1. Set up a Readability account
2. Install the Readability app on your iPhone/tablet
3. Install a Readbility browser add-on on your PC
4. Add the Readability bookmarketlet to Safari on your iPhone/Tablet
5. Start building your reading list!
Brilliant!! Really easy to set up and use. I used to clog up my Favourites with articles to read later and email links to myself to read on the train – no more!
There are a few similar apps out there, this is a good article by Allyson Kazmucha at www.imore.com which compares the different offerings.
I used Google Chrome on my Windows 7 laptop and Safari on my iPhone when trying this app out. Multiple browsers and operating systems are supported, including Android – see http://www.readability.com for more details.
Do you use Readability (or one of the other similar apps) already? If so, do you like it? Have you any other apps you’d like to recommend? I’m always on the look out for good ones..
