Readk.it Delivers Ebooks In Browser-based Platform

Posted at 12:11PM Thursday 20 Feb 2014

Readk.it, a new browser-based reading platform, offers to sidestep the complex and often costly process of preparing ebook content for a range of proprietary delivery systems.

Developed in New Zealand and launched in November of last year, the platform bills itself as a free, open-source solution to those production challenges by collapsing the publishing and reading systems into one. Readk.it allows users to harness a browser's display capabilities to customize how the content will render there, regardless of the device being used.
