Reeder, the best Google Reader client for the iPad (and Mac, too), just got a lot better with the 1.3 update that showed up in iTunes a few minutes ago. Just in time for the iTunes Connect holiday shutdown, Reeder 1.3 introduces a few bug fixes but, most of all, the possibility to fetch full content on articles from any website thanks to initial Readability integration.
Readability is a great tool (also used by Apple in Safari Reader) that removes clutter from webpages to display text in an elegant way without all the images, ads and links that are usually living on today’s webpages. In Reeder for iPad, developer Silvio Rizzi decided to use Readability to fetch full and uncluttered content from websites that come with truncated RSS feeds (unlike MacStories) and won’t let you read an entire article in the standard RSS view.
To activate the feature, open an article and tap on the Readability icon in the top toolbar. Wait a few seconds, and Reeder will display the full content without having to open the web view.
Reeder for iPad is available at $4.99 in the App Store.
