Web tools for better reading
While searching the internet for information, we often find interesting articles, webpages or videos, but it is not possible to read or view them all immediately.
With web tools like "readability" or "pocket-read it later", you can save web sources and extract relevant content. You will get a clean text version without any annoying images and advertising. This text version is of course optimized for reading on your smartphone, or tablet, or e-reader.
With Readability you can:
- turn any web page into a clean and comfortable reading view
- save your articles for reading later on your tablet, mobile phone or Amazon Kindle a.s.o.

With pocket you can:
- save web resources like articles, videos or anything for later into Pocket from your browser
- read the information in a comfortable reading view on your tablet or mobile phone
