There's even more to Legible News Plus
In addition to Speed, all of these great features are included when you upgrade:
Daily News ☕️
Read only the most important global news headlines once per day at exactly . There's no distracting "breaking news alerts", crazy ads, pop-ups, videos, or other insanity. It's just you, the headlines, and lots of contextual links that actually teach you what's happening behind the news.
The Weekly Edition 🗞️
Read even less news. Every Friday we take the weeks news, put it on one page, and show it to you so you only have to read the news once per week. That's 52 days out of the year you'll read the news leaving the other 313 days free for you to focus on other more important stuff in your life.
Get The Weekly Edition or Today's news delivered directly to your email inbox so you don't even have to open a browser. There's no tracking pixels either so your news remains private.
Turn on focus and when you click on a Wikipedia link, we'll show you just the text so you can stay focused on reading and not get distracted by images, navigation, footers, donation requests (don't worry, we donate $1 of your subscription to Wikimedia), and all the other stuff that appears on Wikipedia pages.
Ask for new features or improvements in the community forums.
$1 of your subscription is donated to the Wikimedia foundation to support their community.
