Late reading applications allow you to keep all the content you encounter on the web for a later and more relaxed day, in an orderly and comfortable way. What is the ideal choice for you? Come in and find out
Have you encountered an article that interests you but is too long to read at the moment? You can remember to return to it later when you have the time to add it or add the page to the bookmark store in your browser. But what if an Internet connection is now available and will not be available later when your time is available. This need is intended to answer Apps Save for later reading. But besides being able to read the content you're interested in offline, Apps These offer a clean and convenient reading interface and the options for managing and arranging content that interests you in one place and is available.
Of all three, Readability has the most complex design. While the others are being tackled with horribly simple design lines and trying to trace the minimalism of electronic reading devices with electronic ink screens, Readability still looks and feels like an application of Smartphones. The front page displays the user's list of articles and a toolbar at their top. The ruler has the option to sort the articles displayed by the entire list, favorite articles or those that the user chose to save.
Expanding the bar reveals a search button that does what is expected of it, an add button that allows you to add articles to the app via a URL or a Google search. There is also an edit button that displays a screen where you can mark multiple articles and delete them or save them together in the archive (archived articles will not disappear from the list to make room for new articles and access to them will always be possible through the archive category). The last function that includes the ruler is the gear of the app settings which can also be accessed through the menu button of the device.
In the list of articles, the articles are presented by a headline, the first few lines of the article and the source of the article. The app does not display the image of the article as Pocket does, but it certainly shows the useful information as you would find in Instapaper. Smoothing one of the articles to the right reveals three options: Add to favorites, Add to archive, and Delete.
The application's settings menu is very simple and very low. It has only two categories and a total of six fields of which only one can call itself a setting. It is possible to change the user profile, refresh the list of articles, restart the tour that teaches using the application that they are going through during the initial session. There is an About field where you can see that this is indeed an 1.0 version of Readability and Field Design. The app can not set a background refresh to see if new articles have been added to the list and downloaded them to the device for reading offline. This refresh is only automatic when you launch the app and manually from the main screen.
On the reading screen almost everything is good. The content is organized. The app can identify the contents of the article and omit all the text content that is not relevant. Such as the buttons on the site, the registration fields, the response fields, and God knows what Instapaper sometimes saves along with the content of the article. At the top of the screen is the source address and the Web View button, which allows you to download and view the article in its original form on the site. And below it is the contents of the article with the title and all the pictures. At the top or end of the article you can continue scrolling to the next or previous article in the queue. This is a convenient option that allows continuous reading and which does not exist on Pocket or Instapeper.
Clicking anywhere in the article or on the menu button of the device raises a bar that allows: delete, add to favorites, save, do share and change text size, font and reading mode between day and night (white letters on black background).
Your place in the article is preserved and if you want to return to the article you have not finished, it will wait for you where you have stopped reading. However, there is one serious problem with the app. Hebrew content is displayed many times from left to right. If you save the article from the browser, the app will know how to display it right to left as we used to read in first grade. Articles in Hebrew that are saved from other applications such as that of Ha'aretz will always be displayed from left to right. If you scroll through an English article in Hebrew, this will be displayed from left to right as well. Very restless and can certainly be the deciding factor in the choice between the three applications.
The site is designed similar to the application and the interfaces are very similar in their functionality. There is a sorting menu of articles according to: the entire list, favorites and saved. In the center of the page is the list of articles and above there is a button added by a search or URL and options for expanded or reduced presentation of the articles. Below each article there are options to do Share through פייסבוק, Twitter, Email.
There are options in the app: Save to Favorites, Delete and Archive articles. Another option is to save the article as ePub for reading in electronic books and applications of this type. The content display options are slightly richer than those in the mobile app and offer five font and color styles, line width adjustment, font size, and the ability to hide images. Adding content through your browser is a simple matter. You can save a bookmark on the browser toolbar and save articles to a list in the app with a single click or install the add-on to the browser, click on the red sofa and select Read Later.
