Editors' Review

Readtime is a news reader app for iPhone and iPad that has a few neat tricks to queue up articles for you. It costs $1.99 from iTunes and installs quickly.

When you launch Readtime it lets you set a specific amount of time and it will then download and queue up the number of articles or features it thinks you can read in that time frame. Once you've read an article, you swipe the screen and the article disappears, with another article appearing. This continues until you run out of time. By timing your reading speed, Readtime can adjust the amount of content it downloads. Readtime also makes content available offline. There's some configuration options such as the ability to choose only short or longer articles, and you can set time increments by the minute or by 5-minute blocks. There's also a dictionary lookup built in to allow you to check words in an article. The interface is clean and simple, and you'll get used to using Readtime after only a couple of minutes.

Readtime worked well in our testing. After using it a few times, the amount of content it downloaded did adjust, although there was always more content available if we wanted to keep reading. Whether you really want to time your news reading is up to you, but if you do, Readtime will serve it up for you.
