I am constantly looking things up and bookmarking them to come back to when I have time. Unfortunately, when I DO have the time to go back to my bookmarks, I no longer have a wireless connection. This app allows me to read what I've bookmarked without wifi. And it puts it in a reader format, making it easier on my eyes (no distracting ads!).

Not available for Nook Color

I did not want to rate this app at all, as I have no way to use it; it apparently is only for the Nook *Tablet,* not the Nook Color. Since it's a free app, I'm not complaining, really, but I think the product page should have made this clear.

    Clean and straight-forward interface. Easy to use right from the first start, no need even to click open the "Getting Started" guide. Readability performs a useful task very well, exactly as it's promoted. And it's free. Enough said.

    Excellent, Useful App I Appreciate More Each Day

    The more I use this app, the more I appreciate it. I installed the Readability add-on in my laptop's browser, but now I am so glad to learn (big thanks to the review posted June 4th) that I can go to an article from right on my Nook Tablet and save it for later offline reading. Furthermore, I am thrilled with the ability to use Readability in tandem with the Flipboard app! Not only am I able to read a saved article offline, but I am able to view that article in a clean, crisp display in the font I choose. If a future update adds the option to organize saved articles into folders, I will add a fifth star to my rating, because right now, that is the only major feature I can imagine enhancing the experience of this app. I offer my sincere thanks and appreciation to the innovators of this excellent product.

    You don't know what you have until it's gone.

    Readability is a simple but great app for Nook Tablet and later models. What it does is save web articles for reading offline, and it makes them more readable in the process. I can no longer use it because my Nook Tablet died suddenly and I had to go back to using my older Nook Color. Readability does not work on the Nook Color and that is why I didn't give it five stars. I didn't really appreciate it as much as I do now that I can no longer use it.

    I like it!

    Like the Flipboard, I prefer using this app on the Nook. I can easily adjust the font size, the font itself and the layout. It does take up memory space if you don't archive the articles.
