ReadQuick - Speed Reader

50% off for one week

The world's first and best speed reading app has been fully redesigned and reimagined for your iPhone and iPad. Over the past year many thousands of you have written us asking for some killer new features. So we took our time and built just about every one of them that made sense.

During our first three years in The App Store the reviews have been amazing:

"... I read just fine the traditional way. But a lot of people don’t, and I find it fascinating that many people read better this way. I got a bunch of emails from readers back in January thanking me for linking to ReadQuick, because it works so well for their reading style." - John Gruber,

"With ReadQuick, I was able to knock out a fairly lengthy article in just a few minutes without getting distracted." - 9to5Mac

"... when my aging brain needs a kick in the ass, and I just want to ingest as much information and data as possible. When I want to guzzle down water. That's when ReadQuick is invaluable." - Rene Ritchie (

"I’m particularly impressed by its minimal and intuitive design." - Forbes

"For me personally, RQ is a great way to enforce focus and attention on what I'm reading; if I look away, daydream or get distracted, I'm going to miss something." - Engadget

One New App, Many New Features

ReadQuick helps you read faster than ever before. Designed for iOS 9, this app helps you speed read while getting through your daily reading lists.

You can access articles you want to read through our partners like Pocket or find them yourself with the built-in browser. You can also choose to read think pieces by our great content partners such as iMore, Longreads, and more. ReadQuick will tell you how long each article will take you to complete based on your words per minute rate.

The more you use ReadQuick the faster your reading rate will become.

Customer Reviews

Better than before!

I bought this app over a year ago and got my speed up to 1000wpm in a few months and periodically came back to the app for practice.

Now that premium features have been integrate into the standard purchase, I'm amazed. I'm reading a little slower with multiple words, but I'm so excited to develop the skills further! It is definitely exceeding my expectations. I will certainly recommend this to my friends. I look forward to many months of pleasure and progression.

Back to what it used to be

This used to be one of my favorite apps, then they did this awesome upgrade and added a "premium upgrade" package to make it a functional app. I was annoyed they removed that on an app I originally paid $4 for. They have removed that "premium upgrade" and I'm back to using it and loving it again. This is a really great app with a lot of really great features.

Update: Back and better than ever!

UPDATED REVIEW: it's back and it works again! This is one of the best apps on the App Store. I'll keep this review brief because I'm excited to catch up on some saved articles.

My previous reviews are below and are not applicable to the current version:

Update: Reporting this app and developer to Apple along with my email receipt from my original premium purchase.

The button to restore your purchase of QuickRead Premium still does not work.

A message to the developer(s): please make sure to test your final builds on actual iOS devices before releasing the updates. Simply running the build in Xcode's device simulator is not sufficient.
