The latest version of iOS, iOS 6, is expected to be released today. And in a couple of days, the latest generation of the iPhone, iPhone 5, will finally become available. It’s no wonder then that a slew of apps that have been updated for both iOS 6 and iPhone 5 have begun emerging. Not surprisingly, these include the three most popular read-later apps out there: Instapaper, Pocket, and Readability.
Whatever your favorite read-later app is among the three, you can rest assured that it will work well with iOS 6 and with your brand spankin’ new iPhone 5.
To be sure, though, iOS 6 and iPhone 5 compatibility isn’t all there is to the latest versions of Instapaper, Pocket, and Readability.
For one thing, Instapaper now has a an Open-Dyslexic font that increases the app’s accessibility to readers with dyslexia.
As for Pocket, it also lets Tumblr users select which blogs to post articles to. In addition, the following fixes are applied to the app formerly known as Read It Later:
- Offline articles will no longer be cleared if disk space is limited
- Items will no longer appear as duplicates when adding via the clipboard
- Videos will no longer stop playing when the device is rotated
Finally, Readability improves scrolling to prevent accidental panel swipes. The app now also requires iOS 5 or higher to operate properly. And in case you missed it in the app’s previous update, Readability now has a unified navigation menu for both iPhone and iPad.
Update to the latest version of your favorite read-later app now and prepare to read-later with the added stability of iOS 6 and the added real estate on the iPhone 5.
