Loveeeeee it!

As someone who loves information, new ways to learn, and getting through the front pages of newspapers, this app is essential. It pays for itself. It also has classic books on there which is a nice added bonus.

Anyone who thinks ‘you’ can’t speed read, I encourage you to try this app out and see how your amazing brain works.

You can read rsvp or guided. I’m going through 20 news pieces a day and I love it!

Best so far

I’ve had quite a few speed reading apps, and this is by far the most affordable and useful.

No complaints.

I do wish algorithms could deviate the speed a little based on word complexity or syllable count. My brain doesn’t naturally process all words at the same speed.

Fantastic collection of free books

There are science fiction books in here that I haven’t read since I was 10 years old so I am really grateful for that.

Turns out that I read pretty fast, The default setting was way too slow, had to turn it up to 400 words per minute.
