Learning how to read faster - sounds like a hard work, isn't it? What if you could train your reading skills while reading your favourite book or print article - wouldn't that be nice? This is what we have achieved with Fastr RSVP reader application. No matter, what's your reading skills are, we created a solution that works. You can now be training while reading your favorite books that are interesting and appealing to you. Fastr turns reading skills training into a fun and pleasant process and we welcome you to be part of it!
So you have 3 things combined together - freedom of choosing your favorite books for training, super efficient reading training mode and a convenient library and stats to monitor your progress!
Main features include:
- Adding DRM-free books in ePub format from the app
- Adding books and web articles from Fastr website
- Two ways of reading the book - classical reading and speed reading (using RSVP method), synchronisation and switch between them.
- Reading progress saving
- Text presentation in adjustable chunks from 1 word per screen to compact blocks up to 3 lines of text with up to 8 words in line
- Reading speed adjustment on the fly while reading the book.
- Table of Contents
- Reading statistics (time spent, time left and reading speed)
- Sharing on Facebook and Twitter (works with iOS6)
We have created a common library screen with the books that is user-friendly user interface and well known to anyone who used any app for reading like Kindle or iBooks. Switching from normal reading to the reading training mode is smooth and predictable. When you switch back, you can always see your position in the text. The reading progress stats make it possible to cover even large books with a comfort of a top class reading app.
Unlike the other apps Fastr lets you add books from Dropbox, Safari, add files on www.fastr.io website and add some books just from the app. Adding your own reading materials has never been easier.
