More About Readwise Reader

Readwise Reader Screenshot Image
Readwise Reader is the first read-it-later app built specifically for power readers. If you’ve ever used Instapaper or Pocket, Reader is like those except it’s built for 2023 and brings all your reading into one place including: web articles, email newsletters, RSS feeds, Twitter threads, PDFs, EPUBs and more.

“Reader has completely redesigned the read-it-later app. It’s gorgeous and blazingly fast. In many ways, it’s the Superhuman of reading — you won’t want to read anywhere else.”
Rahul Vohra (Founder of Superhuman)

“I spend my entire day reading, researching, & writing and Readwise is the reading tool I’ve been waiting for. The perfect complement to my writing workflow. Absolute game changer.”
Packy Mccormick (Author of Not Boring)

“The Readwise reading app is the first read-it-later app that enables a true workflow for serious readers. As an ex-Pocket /Instapaper power user, it's hard to imagine ever going back.”
Fitz Maro (Creative Technology Lead at Pinterest)

ALL YOUR READING IN ONE PLACE

Stop juggling half a dozen reading apps. Reader brings all your content into one place including:

• Web articles
• Email newsletters
• RSS feeds
• Twitter threads
• PDFs
• EPUBs


You can even import your existing library from Pocket and Instapaper and RSS feeds from Feedly, Inoreader, Feedbin, etc.

POWERFUL HIGHLIGHTING FOR POWER READERS

We believe that annotations are the key to getting more out of what you read. So we’ve developed highlighting as a first-class feature inside Reader. Highlight images, links, rich text, and more. On any device.


READER WILL CHANGE THE WAY YOU READ

We’ve reinvented the digital reading experience to apply the power of software to the printed word. This includes TEXT-TO-SPEECH (listen to any document narrated with the lifelike voice of a real human), GHOSTREADER (your integrated GPT-3 copilot of reading enabling you to ask questions, define terms, simplify complex language, and more), and FULL-TEXT SEARCH (find whatever you’re looking for, even if you only remember a single word).


FLEXIBLE SOFTWARE TO FIT YOUR UNIQUE NEEDS

Your personal interests, your professional projects, your way of doing things — they’re unique. Reader is your home base for the varied documents in your life, customizable to match the way your brain works.

PDFs for work, articles for your newsletter, and ebooks for pleasure all live comfortably side-by-side. No more juggling dozens of apps.


INTEGRATED WITH YOUR FAVORITE TOOLS

Your annotations should flow effortlessly from your reading app into your writing tool of choice. Instead you waste hours reformatting, reorganizing, and repeating. Reader eliminates this hassle. Reader seamlessly connects to Readwise which exports to Obsidian, Notion, Roam Research, Evernote, Logseq, and more


READ ANYWHERE, ANYTIME

Access all of your content from any of your devices with everything in sync. Even offline. Reader syncs across all platforms, including a powerful, local-first web app and iOS. You can even highlight the open web with the Reader browser extensions.

What's New in Readwise Reader 5.0 >

* Highlighting should now be a lot more smooth/natural in this version :) No longer struggle to include punctuation or make the selection work just right.

* Newly saved documents should load A LOT faster now.

* An improved style sheet for customizing every detail of how you want you want to read.

* You can now toggle "original styles" on your ePub books, which should improve their formatting quite a bit.

* We've completely revamped the search feature to be a lot more fast & accurate. Find any document in your library, instantly.

* Many many other bug fixes

--

Previously:

* Lots of Text to Speech improvements in this build(!):

* TTS will now save your position in the background while listening

* TTS will not longer mistakenly change your speed

* TTS indicator will fail less frequently when wrapping words at the end of paragraph

* TTS is a lot faster and more accurate on long documents (eg books)

* TTS player bar now takes less space, with new (more intuitive) buttons when you scroll away from the tracked word

* Nicer loading state (showing the cover) when opening books

* High contrast highlights for eink devices (can be enabled in settings)

* Subtle improvements to how taps and swipes open the UI while reading to make the experience feel more sturdy

* Improved reading position saving between sessions when paginated

* You can now read any document in the (beta) Paged Scroll mode! This is especially useful for books, where you can now simply tap the left or right edges of the screen to jump to the last/next page of content, rather than constantly scrolling. This should be familiar to reading in apps like Kindle, except it has our own innovation that allows you to highlight across pages effortlessly.

* You can now customize your Reader import email address, from both mobile and web! No more copy pasting the email you need to forward your newsletters too, you can have any email alias you want :)

* Bundles! Although you can only enable them on web right now, you can share any set of documents in your library that you like with another user.

* We shipped our biggest refactor ever to Reader, which makes the app 2x to 100x faster, across both the web and (especially) mobile apps, depending on the power of your hardware and the number of documents in your account. (Think: snappier actions, quicker loading, less memory usage, etc). As part of this refactor, countless complex bugs (like those encountered when multiple browser tabs were open), memory leaks, and edge cases should also be fixed.
