Another update to ReadItNow brings more features
By DJ Reyes on 25 Oct 2013 06:43 am EDT

It was only a week ago when we saw a big update to third party Pocket client ReadItNow. The developer went native Cascades for v6.0 and he got a huge response from the CrackBerry community. So, he went to work to bring some new features suggested by users of ReadItNow. I always love developers who are very responsive to their users and update frequently. I use ReadItNow because it's a great Pocket client but the experience is made even better when you have a very active developer.

What's new in ReadItNow v6.1.0?

  • NEW: optimized sync process
  • NEW: available in more share menues from other apps! for example Blaq, gNewsReader, ...
  • NEW: added ability to configure the margin between text and display edge in article view
  • NEW: added more values to selectable font-sizes and line-spacing
  • NEW: added hotkey to share an article ("A")
  • NEW: added hotkeys to to increase and decrease fontsize ("I", "O")
  • NEW: added BBM channel info to about dialog (C000311B3)
  • FIXED: share target icon (visible in other apps share menu) size fits better
  • FIXED: no more showing "Deleted Article" during sync
  • FIXED: os 10.2 related bug always showed loading indicator in article view
  • FIXED: font "Verdana" is now usable, corrected typo
  • FIXED: some other typos

I was just about to purchase this app when I remembered that I upgraded to 10.2
Pocket did not work with 10.1 but runs beautifully on the latest BlackBerry OS update. Sorry developer, there's no need for us sideloaders to buy your app any more.

Right, but you miss propably the best native pocket client this way. The android port is just unable to deliver all features ReadItNow! has just by integrating itself into the BB10 system. I simply love to share a link to ReadItNow! from within the browser. Simple, smooth, productive, BB10.

But sideloading the Android pocket client is the best fit if you don't want to spent money the value of a small coke to a independent developer which gives BlackBerry10 some love by wasting countless hours to develop us a native App.

BlackBerry is an expensive platform but I have no regrets about making the move from Android. In the 3 years I've had an Android phone, I've only purchased 1 app. In the first 3 weeks of getting my BlackBerry, I've spent over 20 on apps.
It's not that I don't support BlackBerry Devs; I just think the native Android app for Pocket is better.
