Not Awesome, But Could Be Worth A Few Bucks If Sold If...

I’d be willing to buy this program if it gave the user flexibility in it’s preferences.

1. The Shimmer (is centered) and Underline is on a single character that smoothly glides through the text. - That’s a strain on my eyes and I wish I could widen it up to 10 characters.

2. The Fade (from the unread material being black and change to grey) and Embolden (unread is grey and change to black) was a nice approach too. - but the preference could adjust the shade of gray, or changing the color altogether. A bonus would be to change shades of color and from regular to bold font, or visa-versa.

3. You’re not able to restart unless you import, or paste, the material back. Otherwise, you’ll infuriously be clicking back line by line. - a “Back to Beginning” and “Top of Paragraph" buttons would be nice.

4. Awesome if somebody could get an e-reader to work on PDFs. - Be worth a few bucks more then.

Great Product!

Great product, makes reading articles from the internet must easier (no ads) and the cursor keeps me focused at my spot on the page. If I need to stop and do something else, I can just pause it and then pick up where I left off when I am ready. Also, ART Reader lets me know how long it will take me to finish an article. This is great! I love it and will use it all the time! I am excited to use ART Reader to track my progress to read faster!

Wow - IT WORKS! Excellent For Maintaining Focus and Speed!!

Always the skeptic, I was unsure if an app could actually make a difference in the way that I read and retain information… Well, just as I was blatantly wrong about the wonderful benefits of E-Readers, I can happily say that ARTReader has proven me wrong yet again!

What a simple and beautiful application that allows me to retrain my eyes to maintain pace while I read… It is such a simple concept, yet it literally grasps my eyes and gracefully guides them along the text in such a way that I can’t explain, but I can RECALL everything I read!

If you are looking for a speed reading application that does what it promises - ARTReader is the leader!

Well done!
