this are the benefits of the PRO / PHONE version compared to the FREE version:
- It allows you to select the number of articles to be downloaded.
- It allows you to limit synchronization to unread articles.
- It allows you to read articles everywhere, if you synced your reading list before leaving the house.
- New articles can be added with a patched standard browser and with the Advanced Browser (1.2.6+)! (both TP only)
- Articles can be opened in the Advanced Browser (TP only).
- The article list fills the left panel; there are no banners or popups.
Good news everyone,
the first version of ReadOnTouch FREE is now available in the HP App Catalog and this is also the first version for webOS 2.1 devices.
But be careful, performance-wise it is not the same on webOS 2.1 devices like on the HP Touchpad or HP Pre3. Don’t expect too much out of it on slower devices. Hopefully it is useable on the HP Veer and the Palm Pre2. Just give me some much appreciated feedback, please.
You can grab it here!

Good news everyone,
I’ve just finished uploading ReadOnTouch FREE to HP! So this version gives you a glimpse of what to expect from the already available PRO version of ReadOnTouch.
This version will be available for:
- HP Touchpad
- HP Pre3
- HP Veer
- Palm Pre/Pre2
- and maybe all other devices with webOS 2.1!
To use this application you must install the updated Maps app (by HP).
Following a few pictures from the Touchpad:
You can grab it here as soon as it is approved by HP.
I’ve some bad news for you: I was not able to submit the FREE version, with webOS 2.1 support, today to the HP App Catalog because of some really annoying performance issues on one tested device. As reported to me, it was nearly impossible to scroll in the article list and inside the articles on the HP Veer. That really confuses me because my other tester with the same device told me something different, or maybe I misunderstood him.
I won’t submit an app to the HP App Catalog if it is not useable due performance issues on the supported devices. So hopefully I find a solution in the next few days, or I have to cancel webOS 2.1 support.
I’m just started to work on a limited but free version of ReadOnTouch for those of you who would like to try it first. But please keep in mind that the free version will only showcase you what the pro version does. You will likely see everything like in the pro version, but you have a number of limitations. By using this free version you will get a good impression if ReadOnTouch works in your favor. So you can test it before you spend the money.
I hope that this version could also be used to test it on phones with webos 2.1. I’ll do my very best to make that possible. I’ve already got some feedback, from my beta-testers, that my app is working and looking fairly ok on a Palm Pre(1) and a HP Veer. Neverless the performance on a Palm Pre(1) is awful bad. So on that phone it sure makes no fun to use ReadOnTouch. I hope it will do better, performance-wise, on the Palm Pre2 and HP Veer.
Hopefully I’m able to push it the next days to the HP app catalog.
