Pocket update on iOS adds custom fonts and support for dyslexic readers

Read-it-later service Pocket has updated its iOS app for Premium subscribers.

A subscription costs $4.99 per month and can now get you a new “customizable reading experience,” which includes seven new fonts to choose from and the ability to alter the page layout with custom margins and spacing options.

So. Much. Tech.

Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.

Pocket has also added a new font that’s specifically tailored to make the reading experience easier for people with dyslexia. The font, called Dyslexie, is the only new feature that is also available in Pocket’s free tier.

A new Auto-Dark Mode allows Premium users to adjust the app’s reading theme depending on the light or darkness of where they are, which should make for more comfortable reading.

Pocket hasn’t said when the new features will be available to its Android users.
