Reading mixtapes shareable, embeddable
Aggregator and reading service Readability has rolled out a new feature for its platform, one that allows users to share their own reading lists with others in a variety of ways. The new Readlist feature works as a sort of mixtape for reading, bundling content that users save from the web into a package deliverable to Kindles, iPads, and smartphones.
Users with Readability accounts can now create and manage Readlists, which are shareable across the Web. Users can invite other users to edit their Readlists as well, sharing an edit URL that can be used to contribute to the list. Readlists can also be embedded in web pages, allowing users to share reading lists pertinent to a blog or other page.
Since its debut, Readability has enjoyed considerable success, but the service took off after Readability began offering it for free in November of last year and rolled out on iPhone and iPad apps. Earlier this year, an Android version became available, though it was initially exclusive to Amazon's Kindle Fire.
