Readr Expands iOS Read Later Options

One of the interesting features in iOS 6 is the built-in Reading List in Safari. Say there’s an article you’d like to read, but can’t get to it at the moment. You can save the text to your iPhone by tapping the share button in Safari and selecting Add to Reading List.

Not only can you read later with the Reading List, but it can sync with iCloud to your other iOS devices or a Mac desktop. But what if you want to use another read later service besides the default iOS Reading List? That’s where the Readr tweak comes into play.

Installing Readr will add Instapaper, Pocket or Readibility options. Choosing the read later service you want to employ is accomplished in the Settings. The tweak also is capable of saving articles from several different iOS web browsers and the built-in stock iOS apps, not just Safari. Buttons including Read Later and Read Now will appear in the share menu, which respectively either save the article to your service of choice, or reformat it for easy reading immediately.

Readr is available on Cydia from the BigBoss repo for $1.99. Check here for instructions on how to jailbreak iOS 6.x with evasi0n. You can also find out how to purchase and install Cydia tweaks with this guide.
