Readability goes free, to gain iPhone, iPad apps

updated 11:55 am EST, Wed November 16, 2011

Archive access to still cost fee

Online service Readability has announced several major changes, a blog post reveals. The first is that the service is now free; paid accounts will still be available for people who want extra features, such as access to older articles, and daily digest support on the Amazon Kindle. The company has also revised its mobile website to function as an HTML5 app, designed for both smartphones and tablets.

The company is further promising that long-delayed native iPhone and iPad apps should be available in the near future. The software has again been submitted to Apple for approval. Readability was initially rejected from the App Store for violating in-app subscription rules, which may no longer be an issue.

The company has lastly opened up the Readability platform to all interested parties, including developers. As a result reading lists are now accessible through third-party apps like Reeder and TweetMag. Future announcements are planned regarding new partnerships and app support.
