'Read-it-later' app redesigned, adding social sharing feature
Web reading app for iOS Readability has received an overhaul update this week, offering a full redesign in line with iOS 7. Turning any web page into a cleaner, customizable view for reading immediately or saving, Readability allows users to manage their preferred web content in an easier-to-read manner. Users can select from three different fonts -- Sentinel, Whitney or Mercury -- as well as between a white-themed design and a darker 'night' theme.
Introduced in the latest version is a new social sharing feature called Recommendations, which has replaced the Top Reads section of the app. Recommendations was initially released on Readability's web version last year, and allows users to share content with followers, as well as post comments. Additional updates include loading speed improvements, as well as miscellaneous bug fixes. Available on iTunes for iOS devices running iOS 7 or later, Readability is free.
