    Speed Reader's review

    Improve your reading speed with Spritz mode

    • Innovative
    • Exercises to practice Spritz-like reading mode
    • Compatible with most-used news readers
    • Integration with readers should be enhanced

    "Lightspeed reading"

    Novellectual's Speed Reading allows you to read from your favorite news readers using Spritz-like mode. Rapid Serial Visual Presentation (the technique used by Spritz) combines words alignment, placement and punctuation timing to boost your reading speed.

    Speed Reading is like having two apps in one. First, it allows you to practice this disrupting reading mode with some preset passages, bookmarks and custom files. In addition, it features exercises to improve your perception speed and attention. Finally it gamifies it all: you can unlock achievements based on your performance in those exercises.

    Second, you can read any article or document from your favorite news readers (Pocket, Zite, Flipboard, Feedly...) using the Spritz mode. Just press share the article and select Speed Reading. Words will start to swirl from the popup at your desired pace. Unfortunately, to read properly some articles with pics you should select first all the text and then "share" the app with Speed Reading. Otherwise it'll get stuck on the title (that happened to me with Feedly).

    Regardless, Novellectual's Speed Reading is an innovative and well-implemented app. A must-try for ravenous readers.
