Reading website content and blogs on the small screen of your mobile phone isn’t usually a smooth experience. If the website has a good mobile version, then all well and good, but if it doesn’t, then reading with all that clutter on a cellphone screen is a pain. So Android users can try out this app, which is basically a browser, called TextOnly.

As the name indicates, it renders content in text-only mode, removing all the clutter from the content. It can also show a list of articles if you enter the feed URL or the Twitter profile URL in its address bar.

The app is currently in beta, and shows a list of popular sites and blogs that it supports. I am not sure if it works only on those sites or every other site, so if you are an Android user, you’ll need to check that out.
