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

Smiley Reader For Speed Reading reviews

Very nice extension, though usually lagging while restart a new reading. Why don't you add a float, movable control board to start/pause/reset a reading attempt (would be a big plus if user can set hot keys for those actions too)?

- One Plus

Great work, but why can't I choose number of words to be highlighted? It would be better to have it, I think.

Best speed reading extension I've seen. I would love to be able to turn off the background highlighting, though. Also, when autoscroll is enabled, it would be nice to have it keep the current line at the middle of the screen.

Wear Reader reviews

If this worked as intended, this app would be amazing. Books on your wrist, everywhere you go! And actually an attractive interface as well. But constant crashes hold it back. I’m trying to reinstall again - I don’t want to give up on it yet! Developer, please fix the reliability.

I had my Apple Watch for about 8 months before finding this app and admittedly I didn't use it much and was a little disappointed I had spent the money on it. However, after finding this app I won't be caught without my watch. I love that I can read anytime I have some down time. Whether I'm waiting in line, riding the subway or taking a break at lunch all I have to do is look at my wrist to catch up on my reading. I prefer to read using the Traditional Method where I manually scroll through "pages" of the book with many words on the screen at one time instead of the speed reading method that shows one word at a time, but I'm sure some people prefer the other method. Definitely worth using this app.

I want to say thanks for the app. A few reviewers point out that the Apple Watch auto-off setting interrupts reading. And though at first this was disappointing, I found that by placing my finger on the edge of the screen while using the app the auto-off never triggers. I hope people are aware of this! A simple mod that turned Wear Reader into the app I'd been waiting for. Productivity doubled. Well, best wishes and thanks for this weird fabulous idea. I believe that all mobile reading apps will be rapid serial within 7 or 8 years and hope you folks get some deserved credit for that.

The text is too small and when the font size is increased the entire purpose of this mode is negated
