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

Readers’ Edge reviews

This speed reading software has a comprehensive and well-organized help menu that lets you browse topics by keyword, and it explains every part of the application thoroughly.

- Jessica Richards

Taking into account that the Reader’s Edge desktop hasn’t had a significant update for a few years now and counting, the program feels old-fashioned in regards to setup and price value. While you have the most common features onboard, you will need to pay a lot more compared to other tools when trying to upgrade the number of exercises or types of learning features.

- Mark Ways

The Reader's Edge improves your reading speed, comprehension, and recall, no matter how old you are and your level of reading proficiency. Thanks to an intuitive interface, simple exercises, and detailed lessons, you'll be amazed at how much more productive you can be!


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.
