Readability - a service deferred reading, created especially for those who love to read your favorite articles while traveling on a smartphone or tablet. The program is able to extract from the links to articles only the text and images, removing from the eyes of all the annoying ads and site elements.
To start using the application, you need to go through a simple registration process and add signature plugin for Chrome or another browser. Then you can start posting links to articles in Readability, where they are converted into a readable format and delivered to all your devices.
Links can also be sent directly from the Android using the "Share". For example, if you are browsing the internet via a mobile browser, and saw an interesting link, you need to clamp it, choose "send" and "Readability". Similarly, you can add links to and from other applications that support the "Share".
Readability program perfectly integrates with applications such as Flipboard . In the latter, you can select the service pending Readability reading list, then it will be possible in two clicks to send selected entries directly into the program.
For convenience, the program includes a private mini-browser that allows you to surf the Internet, and "on the fly" to convert an article in a readable format, or send them to the next (Read Later).
As with any program of this kind, the Readability happen sometimes "misses" and the article does not reach the device, or comes in the form of non-readable, it happens in 1 out of 10 cases, but sometimes seriously annoying.
Also lacks application to include the slow download speed, compared with the same Pocket . In general, I must say that the programs are very similar, both externally and internally, and the choice is determined primarily in terms of "like" and "dislike".
ResumeThe advantages include the stylish design, good choice of fonts, a built-in browser and navigation. It is a pity that the program can not load the thumbnails of photos, it would be a big plus, and we hope that in the future this functionality will appear.
