Bryan Maynard
Hi, I'm a news reader that can read your favorite content to you.

I can turn articles about what you love into a customized podcast.

I use your iPhone's built in media controls - so I'll keep reading, and you can pause/play and skip around, even when I'm closed.

I support USB, Bluetooth, and AirPlay - so the sky's the limit for ways to listen.

I provide a great way to read articles a page at a time too. I even have an elegant way to view article images and videos.

My simple, vibrant interface makes it a snap to navigate, read, and share.

There's no need to log into anywhere, sign up for anything, or authorize any social networks (unless you want to share an article). Just find and read articles about what you love.

What's new in version 1.7
Integrated the Web of Trust. Now any source with content categorized as negative, questionable, or containing adult content (pornography) is blocked - it does not show up in search results and cannot be subscribed to.

A super cool native iPad interface has been added.

Social sharing features have been temporarily removed - they'll be back & better than ever very soon.

The tutorial system has been completely reworked to be cooler, make more sense, and be more helpful.

And last but not least: bug fixes.
Our verdict: Good
  • + Readie is an ok, 3.5-star app.
  • + The app is currently free, instead of its regular price of $0.99.
