What's New in Version 3.0.2
∙New Statistics section for tracking improvement
∙Dropbox integration for importing ePubs
∙Training Tool Enhancements
∙New App Design
I have not really checked other apps in the market but right now but this app is really good and worth the money. I like the different type of exercises in it and I honestly see some dramatic changes in my reading speeds. I can now read around 320 wpm with almost 90% comprehension rates. And I don't this the only benefit of this app is to increase the reading but in fact it might be good for keeping focus at a constant rate and increasing it. Since you have to spend effort to read vastly changes words in the app, it increases your focus as well. I am a software engineer and reading is an essential part of my life and I guess I have finally found what I was looking for. This app can be a good life partner. Even if you are a speed reader already I believe you can find goodies from this app all the time.
Needs a list of story titles used in sessions
I really enjoy this app. I've already noticed a dramatic increase in my wpm in just 3 days. (I just tested at 499 wpm, but that was in an easy level test)
My only gripe is that 2 minutes is not enough time to finish reading most of the stories in the training sessions. It's kind of frustrating to not know how a story ends! Even though I've retaken some sessions, the stories never repeat, so now I feel like I'll NEVER know how to find them again.
Can you guys list the stories used in your sessions on your website or something?
Otherwise, wonderful app! I love that I can import my own ePub books!
So far so good!
I started with 151 wpm on the diagnostic. Right away after the first day I did 227 wpm with 100% comprehension with the easy horse passage. After about 5 days my average has been 338 wpm on easy passages as well. I am currently still working on speed and I am doing 412 wpm but suffering with 45% comprehension. Although it's low I'm still not done with the sessions, before I wasn't able to keep up with that speed and now I can follow up naturally. I'm expecting improvement on comprehension with time, hopefully it works out just remember to put in the time!
