To feature layout, Twitter sharing options
The long-delayed Readability iOS app will finally be available on March 1st, the company has announced. The app is being developed in tandem with Teehan+Lax, and will be a universal title with native iPad and iPhone interfaces. Users will be able to adjust options like brightness, font size, and font type, and share content via Twitter. The company is otherwise being mum on features, except to say the app's goal is just an essential set of features for reading.
The app will be free, like Readability's main web service. The Readability platform is designed to make web articles easier to read, converting them into a format with minimal distractions, much like a magazine. If the iOS app carries over features from other software clients, users should be able save articles for offline reading.
