Readability has updated its iOS app to bring a new grid view to the Top Reads and Longform Picks curated reading lists on the iPad. Version 1.2.3 of the app also promises “even more sync speed improvements” which should make Readability even snappier than it was before.
According to the official Readability blog, the new grid view “gives readers a more inviting, visual way to discover new content in Readability.” It also makes it easy for users to skim through the curated reading lists and quickly pick out articles that catch their eye. Each one is presented with a short preview alongside its main image.
The new look is exclusive to the iPad, unfortunately, so you won’t be able to see it on your iPhone yet. Which is a shame, because it seems like a handy feature that many will get used to using and then miss when it’s not there.
Prior to this update, the Readability app for iOS got iPhone 5 support, a unified navigation menu, a new URL scheme, and a new gesture for saving articles. You can find the app — which is completely free — in the App Store now using the source link below.
