Spdr - Speed Reading

Kindred, Inc.
"Spdr is the Swiss Army Knife of reading apps." -Enzo, Spdr reader

People normally read at a rate of 150-200 words per minute. With Spdr (pronounced “Speeder”), you can instantly double that without even trying and still retain the same amount of information. There is no learning or effort required. Watch the app preview videos above to experience it before downloading. Then, download Spdr and try it out for yourself for free.

Here's how Spdr works:

Spdr displays words one-by-one, with Punctuation Pauses giving Spdr a natural and seamless feel. Rather than moving your eyes across and down a page like you normally would, Spdr allows you to absorb text as it is presented. This means your eyes don't have to work as hard, enabling you to read and retain more text faster without your eyes getting tired and fatiguing.

We recommend starting at double the average adult reading speed, or 300-400 words per minute, and working your way up as you feel comfortable.

Spdr is free for you to try in order to see whether the technique works for you:

(1) Simply copy most links or any text and paste into the text box in Spdr
(2) Set your desired words-per-minute rate
(3) Hold down anywhere on the screen to start, and lift to pause

Spdr is seamlessly integrated to fit the Apple Watch interface, with its simple yet comprehensive functionality, one-word-at-a-time reading method, press-and-release controls, and intuitive use of the Apple Watch's hardware components, like adjusting your reading speed with the Digital Crown. Read anything effortlessly on Apple Watch with one simple press gesture. No scrolling, repetitive tapping, or swiping necessary. Simply open Spdr on your Apple Watch, adjust the word-per-minute rate with the Digital Crown, and start reading. Spdr on Apple Watch is great for any situation where you don't want to take your iPhone or iPad out. Spdr synchs seamlessly between Apple Watch and your device.

Notice:

Rapidly flashing content may have adverse effects on individuals prone to seizures. If this is you, please use Spdr with caution. Link pasting and app extensions work better for some URLs and websites than they do for others. Image text recognition camera results may vary depending on text and image quality, including the surface of where the text appears. Certain features are limited on Apple Watch. watchOS 5.1 or later is required to run Spdr on Apple Watch. An Internet connection is required when pasting links, and may be required when using the Spdr Pro-available app extensions to share content to Spdr. File support includes .epub, .pdf, .doc, .docx, .rtf, .html, and more. Spdr does not currently support .fb2 and .mobi ebook file types. ePub books protected by DRM (Digital Rights Management) are not supported. Jailbroken devices are not supported. If you find Spdr useful (or useless), we'd like to know by having you leave a review. Thanks!
