Readability, hands down the the best alternative to Instapaper’s read it later service, has finally made its way onto the iOS platform. First announced back in November of last year, Readability teamed up with the talented designers at Teehan+Lax to bring users a beautifully designed and easy to use iPhone and iPad app. For those not familiar, Readability is a great tool that lets you strip away all clutter from a webpage, leaving you with a center column of text – much like Safari’s Reader functionality. Of course, you can elect to save these pages for reading later – be it online or offline. And this is where the app comes into play; any webpage you send to Readability via a web browser will sync with your iOS devices, so you can read those saved articled when you’re out and about. Even if you have already invested in Instapaper’s $4.99 app, Readability is definitely worth checking out. It’s now available to download for free on the App Store.
