QuickReader

This is a speed-reading app designed to improve the reader’s ability to chunk word groups together quickly. You start by testing your current reading speed to use as a baseline. Then you tweak a few values like Words Per Minute and block size, which controls the speed and size of the highlight text block (shown in the screenshot above). It comes with over 20 famous works, including Pride and Prejudice, The Tale of Two Cities, and Flatland (!). I wish the app provided a way to download free texts from the Internet, but what they provide is substantial for the purpose. Personally, I find the method of training your eyes to move faster with this method to be superior to textbook solutions, but your mileage may vary, as will your comprehension.
