Ever had to read through a an email, book or an article on the web, but felt like it took ages to read through it all?

Normally your brain will attempt to pronounce words you read, which is called subvocalization or internal speech.
Flash Reader removes this limitation by showing you words so fast that your brain doesn't have time to subvocalize, but still allows you to retain everything you've read, by something called RSVP.

Whether it's light reading, or complicated business emails, training your eyes to read faster couldn't be easier, while your reading skill and comprehension will keep getting better and better with each article you finish.

"Great for readers who find words move on the page!
I can read so quickly with it.

Thank you for the reviews, keep them coming! Based on the feedback we receive, we'll add and modify the features as much as we can.

*Please note:
Flash Reader DOES NOT have advertisements of any kind.
Services such as Instapaper, Pocket, website article saving and certain file-specific document conversions have limits and might require the Flash Reader Pro upgrade, which is a permanent one-time payment that unlocks all features of the app.

Some services (including PDF and ePub importing, as well as Microsoft Office files like DOCX) require an active internet connection when importing.

Also note that Flash Reader does not have voice support, so no text-to-speech or anything like that.

Love it. But know it's limits

On my back

This is outstanding and is better than any spritz app I have used. According to the developer this predates spritz so don't expect spritz.

Also if you have a kindle...there is no spritz reader on the market that works for kindle (nice one star review).

The work around is to download a program that converts kindle files to text. Then upload your books and voila! Having bought almost every speed reader, this is the one I would get.

Does not work for Kindle Content


App does not work for kindle content. App support pages give a 404 error. Emails to app support went unanswered. Don't waste your time or money.

Practically un-usable


I really liked this app when I first downloaded it in November--it's not that any in-app features have changed, but rather the app bombards you with so many pop-ups asking you to upgrade to a paid version of the app. The issue I have is that I already upgraded so that I could read more documents than the daily limit. But if you don't upgrade, every time you switch back to the app from looking at another app, the same 'upgrade now' pop-up comes up which blurs out your screen entirely and then when you X out of it, it closes whatever you're reading and sends you back to the home page. When you click back on your document and press "Resume" to get back to the spot you were at in your reading, it never takes you back to the right spot--it's always something like the 10% done point. This can be very obnoxious if you're reading a big document and it'll be next to impossible to find the right spot. In short, the app is free--on condition of suffering a million pop-ups and not being able to use the app at all.
