Wonderful, even if just used for a game, but the strategies you can learn seem to be useful for increasing reading speed. I'm left off one star because there are changes that can be made to some of the activities to both improve their effect and to gather additional information about particular problem areas for the reader.
I think the science behind this app is sound and techniques are effective. The only negative feedback I have is that there is too little variety in the words and sentences used in the exercises. Because there is limited variety, the exercises become too predictable and instead of improving general ability, I find I am only learning to recognize those words and phrases. Fix that shortcoming and I will give you 5 stars, especially since I have paid for the app!
Awesome. I've used this daily for a few months now, and my reading speed has gone from 160 to 250wpm, with full comprehension. You can't expect great results in days. It takes awhile with consistent practice. And you need to remember to use the techniques when you read outside the app. I've taught myself to speed read before, but always struggled with reading comprehension. This approach works wonders.
Fantastic & Worth the Money I try to do the exercises every day. My goal isn't just to read faster, but to increase my awareness, recognition, focus and speeds. This app won't work in one day to do that, but every day, slow and steady wins the race. No complaints. The app can't make me less lazy or you less lazy, so when you buy this, it's up to you to exercise the mind daily. Great product!
I've always hated reading ever since I could remember. Now that I'm older I want to read more and more to learn about different topics. But that is very time consuming. I've been using this app for a few days now and can already tell a difference in what I retain and WPM.
Is it really working? I have doubts. I've been using the app regularly for a week now and my reading ability has not improved a tiny bit. The result might be affected by a fact that English is a foreign language for me (there is not a course in my mother tongue available). Nonetheless I don't think that my English is so bad that it would justify no reading improvement at all. I'll continue training and I'll see. I might come back with more stars later on.
