Readability is a free/pay reading platform that delivers a great reading experience and provides a model where your reading activity can directly compensate publishers and writers.
Since its release, Readability was an instant hit. It's used by legions of readers today to make the Web a more pleasant place to read. The original Readability codebase is embedded in a host of applications, including Apple's Safari 5 browser (the Safari Reader feature), the Amazon Kindle and popular iPad applications like Flipboard and Reeder.
Today, our goal is simple: to deliver a great reading experience and provide an avenue for supporting writers and publishers on the Web. As a Readability premium subscriber, the great majority of your subscription fees are earmarked for writers and publishers that create the content you enjoy reading.
Readability is designed and built by the Readability team, headquartered in New York City. The project is fortunate enough to have an exceptional team of advisors: Roger Black, Jay Chakrapani, Sarah Chubb, Anil Dash, Paul Ford, Jeffrey MacIntyre, Karen McGrane, and Jeffrey Zeldman.
