  • Do NOT BUY. SCAM!!!

    By twocrownies
    This app is basically an opening page with very few menu items that literally go nowhere. There is no way to use the app to read webpages or pretty much anything you can think of to read. There is no help section or tutorial. I tried contacting the company twice by email over a couple weeks. Absolutely no response. Scammed!!
  • Terrible value

    By Portable man
    It’s way overpriced for what it does. It doesn’t have much practice content built in and getting more is difficult. Regretting this purchase.
  • Let's you easily look back

    I've been using speed reading software since I was a kid. This is the first time I've seen one word at a time, with an easy solution for looking back on unfamiliar words or missed meaning. Love this! I can finally use a speed reading app for technical material.

    ...the market How's it going guys. Love the app. It's the number one app on my iPhone app dock for Easy access! I use this app for EVERYTHING, studying, leisure, you name it. Maybe future builds could include Some of the following items If you Guys haven't discussed this already. A companion app for Mac. I don't know how large your audience is, but that would be great. There aren't any good alternatives to your app in the Mac Store (take advantage of apples continuity function) Cloud service back up or some type of online back up for the text that we save for reading. I recently restored my phone to unlock it and I lost a few of the odd notes I had. I also have full ebooks in plain text saved here mainly. So you can imagine the size of the files that I copy and paste into the app. It seems a little slow when opening and closing those files. I think that's mainly hardware issue. A looping feature would be great, even if it's a looping feature for individual notes/files. I like studying with the app and it would be could to have that supersede the begin again feature. Font color changes could be cool but I like the minimal settings as they are so that's not a necessity.
  • Beats ReadQuick

    By v1rag0
    I was a dedicated ReadQuick user. Accelerator is very similar, with some improvements. I like the sepia background and I LOVE the black background, because I read in bed. I'm trying out adding fixations; right now I'm on three words at a time. Accelerator does not show reading times in the queue like ReadQuick. They do show once the article is opened. There is a text-only view of the full article, which is an improvement over waiting to load the Web version. The only other difference I've noticed so far is that the Accelerator queue holds about 70 articles, not quite as many as ReadQuick. I would say Accelerator is about 150% as good as the competition. Factor in that the competition costs twice as much, and it's an even better value. Well done.
  • Doesn’t perform

    By kroww11
    Can’t parse Readability files that contain bulleted or numbered lists, numbered subheads or indented text. Which is pretty much every article you might save in Readability. The customer support is non-existent.
  • I ❤️🕒 Velocity

    By 321jesus
    As a college student who has to read many and long articles and pieces for all oft classes, this app lets me copy the text and then loads it for me to read! It not only makes me focus and get my reading done, but increases the speed at which I read! Love it and recommend it to all, it's a great way to read what you have to read but also increase your skills in speed reading.

  • Disappointed

    By Hansgiant
    I am disappointed! I cannot access and read the books within the Books App on my iPhone! I have many books within the books App and cannot read them. This is not mentioned in the blurb which is made available. I could not have made an informed choice and would not have bothered spending the Dollars if I had known! 'Cmon folks let's wake up!
  • Great tool, nothing wrong with the UI

    By Anon_Not
    Functionally fantastic, does what's promised. I was concerned that it would be difficult to load articles etc. into the app because of a few negative reviews, but in fact found that was not the case. You can go directly to a website and import, or open Pocket and start reading. If I'm on my tablet or computer and find an article, I just email myself the link, then open the email in Apples mail app, click the link and open the site in Safari (not Chrome). Having installed their bookmarklet, it's then drop dead simple to import the target article. Just make sure to install the bookmarklet, simple instructions are included inside the app. Too bad we can't use with Kindle, but even without that, this is an incredible tool and value!
