Read It Offline RSS reader & Readability Client for the PlayBook


I have been looking for a solid offline content reader for my PlayBook and have been toying with possible solutions. The latest one I have found (thanks Peter) is called Read It Offline by The Pumping Lemma Company. The app lets you save articles and their images to read offline later on your PlayBook. With a hookup to the awesome Readability service it will also save articles that span multiple pages along with summarized feeds.

Features include:

  • Downloads your RSS feed articles and images to your PlayBook for offline viewing
  • Grabs the entire article – not just the one paragraph summary typically found in an RSS feed – so you won’t be left with only half of the story
  • Handles multiple page articles by retrieving all pages and saving them as one long piece of content on your PlayBook
  • Full offline support for images, saving them directly to your PlayBook
  • It’s a Readability client, too! Save articles to your PlayBook directly from your PC or Mac’s browser
  • A full screen reader mode for maximum reading comfort
  • Add and remove articles from your list of Favourites with one easy tap of an icon

Check out the app homepage at along with the Readability service. You can purchase Read It Offline for $1.99 in App World.

  1. App World says the app is not available anymore. I mean, I can see the app, click “buy”, then that message. Any problem?

    • Hi Luca,
      There was some kind of problem with compilation of the app. The developers have made a new version which is right now in the hands of app world. It will soon be available again.
