Read Up on Anything!
Look Up and Read Again!
UpReader is a new way to read websites and ePub & PDF eBooks (Text Only) using your VR headset (Samsung Gear VR, Google Cardboard and Google Daydream*). By blocking out all distractions you get fully immersive reading allowing you to read faster, stay more focused and retain more of the information.
Reading eBooks, news sites and Wikipedia on your smartphone during the daily commute can lead to a stiff, sore neck. UpReader enabled you to use simple head gestures to control the text, eliminating any tapping or swiping. UpReader allows you to view your surroundings while wearing your headset by using the front facing camera.
Switch between READ and PAUSE by looking ahead and performing a "quick tilt" head gesture (around 2 seconds ear to shoulder) either to the left or right.
You can set the reading speed in the settings and the text will scroll automatically at the speed you choose.
Look Up to scroll back the text.
Tilt and Hold at an angle to go the next article ("Read web articles" only).
Tap on the PAUSE button to lock UpReader and it won't respond to head gestures until you unlock it again.
A help menu is available that contains two short videos explaining how to set up your reading experience. A tutorial mode can be enabled from the help menu. This shows you the head gestures to control reading, pause and scroll back and can be enabled anytime.
*UpReader also includes support for the Google Daydream VR Headset (which doesn’t have an opening for the front facing camera option) - go to Settings and set the Screen Layout to "Off center" and allow the security camera mode.
