    I love the "reader" function in Safari for iPhone. Is there anything similar for Android? Thanks!

    Android has text reflow so you don't need reader.

    Pocket for Android/iOS?

    Turns this:

    All you have to do is hit menu - share - add to pocket. The switch to pocket to read it in a better format.

    Some phones do have a reading mode included in their stock browsers (galaxy s3 does AFAIK).

    With a big screen, text reflow, fullscreen web browsers, high res screen, endless customization options for fonts and text, you don't even need that function. But I am sure you have that feature on android too if it floats your boat.

    I on the other hand think its just another annoying step to take.

    Yeh, as above is what I was talking about. I only use stock browser as it is flash compatible.
