Reader mode on the BlackBerry 10 browser

If you own a BlackBerry 10 device, you'll no doubt agree with me when I say that the browser is a pleasure to use. It's zippy, webpages load fast and I can open several tabs without it choking on me. While you can load up mobile versions of websites, full desktop sites are also great to view. Sometimes, though, you just want to be able to read an article without any interference from photos, ads and other things on the webpage. 

The BlackBerry 10 browser has a neat little feature known as Reader mode. It allows you read articles free from distractions. It is very useful feature and very simple to turn on and off. Keep reading to find out how to use it.

  • Visit a site with the article you want to read
  • Tap the overflow icon (three dots) on the bottom right and choose Reader

The article is then presented to you in plain text to make it easier to read. You can even adjust the font size to suit you. Once you're done just tap Back to return to the website.
