ReadFaster is an iPhone/iPod Touch app which teaches you to read faster using fundamental concepts of speed reading.
ReadFaster has an adjustable audio cue which keeps you paced in your reading material while avoiding the biggest roadblocks to speedreading - sub-vocalization (reading the words to yourself in your head) and re-reading passages.
ReadFaster's SpeedTrainer feature will incrementally increase your pacing for you automatically.
ReadFaster also enforces break times critical to comfort and attention, and even calculates your pages per hour so you can calculate how long it will take you to finish.
ReadFaster comes with a tutorial to get you started - the rest is up to you to invest some time and effort into a skill which you can turn to whenever you need to read faster.
ReadFaster for iPhone is a remarkable application that actually pushes me to read faster, concentrate harder, and consequently increase my retention by way of the ticking sound. Like many readers, even the best of us, my attention can be easily distracted. ReadFaster helps me avoid distractions by enforcing a steady but concentrated pace in reading. Knowing that I should be reading about one line per “tick” sound converted my reading task into a game of sorts--to finish reading the line before the next tick came around. In order to meet or beat the tick, I had to focus, and this in turn resulted in better concentration, comprehension, and retention. With increased concentration, I no longer had to re-read as much so my reading speed increased. The tutorial consists of three simple steps, which I was able to consolidate further: start reading at the first tick sound and try to reach the start of the next line in time for the return of the tick sound. ReadFaster is a great tool for non-leisure readers who need to read more in less time and still benefit from a greater learning outcome.
It works...just stick with it!
I have spent about 4-6 hours reading an anthropology text with this app, and it has definitely helped me read faster. It is awkward at first, but I stuck with it and I’m sold. It is kind of like a metronome which you can adjust to your reading speed, so it keeps you moving, and there is a feature which increases the metronome speed as you read. The tutorial instructs you of what to avoid while reading – like reading words to yourself and re-reading passages. Finals are coming up and I plan to use this app a lot.
What the hell!!!!
I'm the firts idiot that bought this app. All this app does is tick that's all you'll hear it will keep you in the options menu and you can't get out. The persons that did this app should be ashame cause you just robbed me $2 do something about it. The store should checked every game before putting it here.
