Speed News Reader is the most efficient Speed Reading Software for your iPhone or iPod touch. It helps you read news faster and comprehend better. You can subscribe to any news feed, blog or RSS source and read articles at lightning fast speed.
Speed News Reader utilizes a speed reading technique called, Rapid Serial Visual Presentation (RSVP). Studies show that RSVP concept can be adopted to help people understand large amounts of text and improve reading skills rapidly and more efficiently. Using RSVP, the Speed News Reader application quickly flashes blocks of words on your iPhone screen in sequential order. Its streaming process enables you stare at the screen and just digest the words, without needing to shift your eyes back and forth. Once you are used to RSVP, you will be reading at speeds that you never thought were possible before.
Speed News Reader also utilizes the accelerometer on your iPhone or iPod Touch so that you can control the reading speed by tilting the phone forward and back to control the exact reading speed you desire.
