only lets you do a couple days
Then it won't do any more until you buy their expensive ($10) upgrade. They had a sale 1-1-13 where it was half that. I missed the sale by a couple of days, and their customer service assured me that they would have another sale "soon" and would email me to let me know. It has been 14 months with no email and me checking regularly. No such sale has happened. Further, they have removed the visible prices from their upgrade page, so now you have to act like you are going to buy the upgrade (type in your itunes password, etc) to see the price when it "confirms" that you want to buy the upgrade for $9.99. I suspect they are probably tricking a lot of people into paying that upgrade fee because they click confirm before they see the price.
I'll continue to wait for the sale they said they would have again "soon" over a year ago... then I will review the whole program. what I've seen is good. I would pay $5 for the upgrade to all my devices, but not $10. what they've let me do is not enough to get a clear idea of whether it actually works, so unfortunately I can only rate my experience with the company and the app.
Further, the app hasn't been updated in three years, and when you open it, you get a warning that it may slow down your phone.
Spend less time reading while reading MORE!
In today's information-flooded society, two skills are required to wade through the chaos. First, you must be able to differentiate the reliable, credible information from the empty babble. Second, you need to be able to absorb the information quickly and accurately. This app will help you in the latter. You will notice real improvement almost instantly. I'm a medical student and reading highly technical textbooks doesn't help to rid myself of bad reading habits such as sub-vocalization. My reading WPM increased from 300 to 417 after the first training module.
I am always skeptical of advertising claims and I tried the free version before taking the $10 plunge. It did what it said it should do: improved my reading speed and comprehension. I think software like this could cost much more. $10 is a very reasonable price to pay for this excellent bit of software.
I am relatively new to speed reading. I tried some software on my computer about 10 years ago but I had no discipline then and I didn't stick with it. I didn't like reading and just wanted to cut my time down when studying.
When I did finally grow up and realize the power of reading, I couldn't find enough time to do all of the reading that I need to do! I was planning on spending over $700 on a very well known course for speed reading.
I tried this app first and I can say that it is handy. I did see results almost immediately, at least in the app itself. I did make one mistake when I decided to do too many courses in one day (hoping to speed the process up) and I made my eyes very tired for a few days.
I did not feel like I was really reading faster outside of the app until I had taken the Beginner course two times. After that, I see all written words differently and have read a few 'classic' books in half the time that I used to.
I will be shelling out the big money for the well known program in the future, but for now I do plan to keep using this application to increase myself.
I also like that I can add my own books and use them in the Training Center part of the app. That has helped me to stay focus on my books, and I need all the help that I can get.
I definitely recommend this app.
