Industries: Anyone who wants to improve reading speed

By employing a wide variety of time-tested and proven tactics for faster reading, Outread enables you to breeze through your digital reading lists in record time.

In general, Outread will use a highlighting marker to direct your eyes to focus on smaller bits of text rather than the entire page. This can be rather useful not only for speeding up the processing of digital content but also for accelerating your general rate of work.

To use Outread on your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad, you will need iOS 11 or a later version, as well as a general desire to increase your reading speed and comprehension abilities. Outread may be downloaded from the iTunes store. In this concise review of Outread, we take a look at the features that stand out the most, as well as the benefits and drawbacks of both the Basic and Plus versions.

Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

Outread reviews

Though I haven’t tried out the app yet, I chose this reader because the developer’s privacy policy states that customer data will not be sold. The developer does use Google Firebase so I looked up the privacy policy for that service provider, which states that end user data usage is determined by the customer’s (app developer’s) policies. Other reader apps do not provide this level of privacy protection. I’ll update this review after I’ve had enough time to make an opinion on it. Update: I’ve given it a few weeks now and I have significantly improved my reading speed. I love how easy it is to import articles and books. However, there’s already a good library of books included in the app, so users may not even need to import any books. I recommend this app for increasing reading speed without losing comprehension.

The Best I’ve tried a lot of readers, but Outread is hands down the best. I browse The NYT and Washington Post for articles of interest. Using the Share extension I can quickly and seamlessly add them to Outread. I do most of my reading using the Spritz method, and Outread has added some fantastic features such as customizable settings for the length of pauses at the end of sentences, after commas, etc. You can sort the items in your list alphabetically, by length of article, or by items most recently added. The developers have really thought of everything to facilitate the reading process. There is even a good collection of classics you can read for free.

I’ve tried every speed reading app I could find on apple and google play stores... this one is hands down my favorite when it comes to functionality, simplicity, and stability. I hope this app is around forever. I use it daily and it has my literary journey so much easier. I believe it is worth every penny. Also, the developers of this app are amazing. I had a problem after an update. They looked into it promptly.
