3 years ago we’ve created an simple application that extends Internet Explorer functionality and makes reading Internet pages on Windows phones much easier.

Today we’re announcing that Web Reader application will not be available and will not be workable after December 9, 2016.

We can’t support Web Reader application since Readability Parser API is no longer available: http://readability.com – because our application consumed this web service.

We advise you to use Reading view through Microsoft Edge browser on your Windows phone instead of the Web Reader application: Take your reading with you.

All the best from the 2r Development Team and may you always find what you are looking for in life!
