Make learning, studying, and READING more fun for kids with the Youth edition of QuickReader. A highly customizable eBook reader and speed reading coach all-in-one, it teaches kids proper reading and eye tracking skills, and comes pre-loaded with over 130 classic children’s books.
PARENTS – use it at home to develop your child’s reading skills. Skills that will give their education a boost by helping them focus, finish their homework faster, increase comprehension, and stop back-tracking.
Turn them into the reading superstar you want them to be. The app lets you test and set your reading speed so soon they will be trying to beat their personal best in reading rather than the usual computer games ;)
TEACHERS – use it in the classroom on the iPod Touch and iPad to improve your student’s reading skills. It’s not just for the advanced readers in the class; it’s also a great learning intervention tool for those who need a bit of extra help getting up to speed (literally) with their peers.
Plus as all the books are pre-loaded, so there’s no need for Wi-Fi or 3G internet access to read the books - making it perfect for the classroom.
• Aimed at children aged 8-13 both in the classroom and at home.
• Over 130 classic children’s books pre-loaded in the app - everything from The Wizard of Oz and Black Beauty to Robin Hood and Treasure Island.
• You can also add other ePub catalogs (such as Gutenberg, Feedbooks, Baen Free Library etc). We didn’t do this automatically because some of these other catalogs have adult content. So you can choose and have control over what your children can read. Don’t worry, all the books that are pre-loaded into the app are age appropriate.
• Have a teen who wants to learn to speed read? Want to learn yourself? Check out the full version of QuickReader.

"Quickreader For Young Readers is an amazing app, that enables you to drastically improve your reading and focusing speed, while allowing you to read and download your favorite books, plus hundreds of other ones. The tests are incredibly accurate, allowing your goals to grow rapidly. This app is highly recommended to those who read poorly and those that can use improvement. If it helped me, it can help you!"

“As a teacher I find this app is a great tool to help my students improve their oral reading fluency. There is a wide variety of books, something for everyone. I would use "Quickreader- Young Readers" with all students from 4th grade and beyond. The material is too advanced and the speed too high for any younger readers.”
Mrs. James – Customer review

Ratings and Reviews
I like this app. I love the options to customize your reading experience. However, I think it would be better if you could also test your comprehension and maybe even limit the testing to certain intervals, i.e. not more than once per week, to check your progress. Speed is nothing without comprehension. Overall, the app does what it advertises. I would like the instructions to upload books to be easier, or maybe include links to popular e-libraries. I'm not quite sure how you would do that, but I use my local library's digital site all the time. In the end, I would definitely recommend this app.
Great value, and not just for children.
I've just started using this app this week and so far I love it. The speed-reading trainer alone would be worth the five bucks; the books included are a bonus worth another hundred. There must be fifty books, for young readers and adults. I love the control that the developers have given users. We can choose from an array of typefaces, font sizes, colors, highlights, guided reading, speed tests and more. I strongly recommend this app.
Can't select books based on age
This app has a list of books but no way to know which books are best for which age. There's no index for the library to allow you to select by genre, fiction/non-fiction, age, grade, sex, reading level or other parameters that would be helpful in selecting a book. Therefore I found the app of little value in assisting young readers in selecting a book to read. If a child can't select a book, they won't read it. Too bad because the other capabilities look promising.
The library is also limited and I didn't see a working method to download additional books.
Improve these features and you would have a very good app.
