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.

One of the "Best-ever" apps!

If you are like me and you see dozens of headlines that you would like to read every day, yet never find the time to read 90% of them, this app is for you. If you realize that reading is wonderful exercise for your mind yet you're too busy to read more than you are currently able to find the time to do so, then this app is for you. I'll be 50 years old this month and I have been noticing more and more that as I find less time to read, I feel as though my reading speed as well as my comprehension has dramatically declined. In my opinion, this app is practically Heaven-sent as I can once again read nearly everything I would like to read.

Broken hearted

Used to love this app & recommend to everyone. Used to. If I save more than 3 articles to my Pocket account, saved articles flash on the screen & are perpetually being downloaded. I cannot scroll down before the app flashes & takes me to the top again. Emailed the developers who responded with a suggestion completely unrelated to my issue. Deleted the app & reinstalled to no avail. Thinking perhaps this was a Pocket issue, I did the Sam with that app. Again to no avail. Created a Feedly account & encountered the same problem. Obviously a RQ problem so I reached out to the developers again. That was days ago....Bottom line, works ok as long as you don’t have more than 3 articles or need any support.

Need help but can't leave feedback

I used to use the app but I somehow got bad pocket credentials in the settings and there's no way to remove them. I disconnected it but when I tap it again, it keeps using the same invalid account. I've tried removing the app altogether and reinstalling it but it keeps hanging on to that setting and there's no way to clear it out.

I tried using the feedback link in the app but it just says that email is not configured. And there's no place to configure it so it's useless. I don't know if anyone is still monitoring this for support but I'd like to somehow remove the bad credentials and start from scratch.
