Free Readability App For iOS Browsers

A new freeware iOS app by Readability, LLC turns any web page into a clean view for reading now or later. With the Readability app, you can catch up on articles that you’ve saved from the Web or curated articles that you’ve discovered through the built-in Top Reads and Longform picks.

Readability is a free reading platform that aims to deliver a great reading experience wherever you are, and to provide a system to connect readers to the writers they enjoy.

Readability started off as a simple, Javascript-based reading tool that turned any web page into a customizable reading view. It was released by Arc90 (as an Arc90 Lab experiment), a New York City-based design and technology shop, back in early 2009.

Since its release, Readability has become a hit – used by legions of readers today to make the Web a more pleasant place to read. The original Readability codebase is embedded in a host of applications, including Apple’s Safari 5 browser (the Safari Reader feature), the Amazon Kindle and iPad applications like Flipboard and Reeder.
