Is there a Readlang iOS (iPad or iPhone) app?

There isn't a native Readlang iOS app, but the Readlang web-app has been designed with iPhones and iPads in mind.

Tip: Save Readlang to your home screen and it will open in full screen mode just like a proper app!

To do this (instructions written for iPad):
  1. Open Safari
  2. Browse to
  3. Tap the "Share" button - the square with an arrow coming out of the top, to the side of the address bar.
  4. Choose "Add to Home Screen"
  5. Name it "Readlang"
There you have it. Readlang is now installed to your home screen and will work full screen without the annoying address bar, just like an app. Perfect for distraction free reading!

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Since the update to iOS 8, YouTube videos have stopped working on full screen webapps, so for now to watch the videos on Readlang you'll have to use Safari. This is not a Readlang specific problem and there's nothing I can do to fix it, we just need to hope for Apple to get their act together:
