Read faster. Without effort nor any special training.

Sounds like a dream? It’s not, thanks to science: the approach we use has been tested by neuro-scientists and proved effective over a wide range of studies. We made it available on iOS and iPadOS with a sleek design and some nice advanced features that will make it a pleasure to use.

With UpRead you will be able to:
- Read faster, in a matter of minutes. No kidding
- Reduce reading effort so that you can read longer
- Read articles from the web, imported from Safari or other apps
- Read PDF files and other text documents
- Save your content and read it later, offline
- Customise the reading experience by setting speed, font and color.

You’ll be much more effective, process more information and save time. Your professional and personal life will both have a nice boost from using just one little app.

There’s no price for this. Since we’re sure you’ll love the app, you can try UpRead for free for a limited time. If you’re still (slowly) reading this, it’s time to press that GET button and start the download. Try the app, it’s worth more than a thousand words.

Here’s a few reviews about us:

> Magnifique application qui accélère la lecture tout en améliorant l'attention. Indispensable. — Manitoo, Switzerland, Sep 2019

> This app is the one thing I never knew I needed so desperately. […] For my fellow columnist hounds, UpRead is absolutely essential. — dfe1998, USA, Sep 2019

> I have used every flash reader I could Get my hands on. […] The back end works somehow where the others fail. [… ] You will surprise yourself by how fast you can go over time. Now friends who see me reading something look at how fast the words go and tell me that they just see flashing gobbledygook. I thought the same thing but the learning curve is painless! […] Thank you to the UpRead team!!! Finally! An app worthy of my bottom bar! — eightyanthony, USA, Aug 2019

> It's not a free app but it's worth your money! Simple to use very intuitive, I am reading more than ever! Highly recommended. — dhernz1, Honduras, Jul 2019

Unlike other ‘flash’ reading apps I’ve tried this one loads material easily and keeps track of where you are so you can stop and review formatting information. Super! But — 1000 word per minute maximum is WAY too slow. 10,000 would be better. Reading technical or boring material very fast, two or three times is provides better comprehension in a much shorter time. Only reason I don’t give it 5 stars.

🤯 I didn't think about that!
I like the idea of super-fast reading, seems promising in the way you present it. I'll see how to add that nicely in the UI.
Thanks a lot for the suggestion and for the review!

Best designed speed reading app

This app has been excellently designed. I particularly appreciate the “hold to read” feature and the sharing sheets. There is one significant reason that I cannot give the app 5 stars—I use speed reading apps to improve my normal speed reading ability (on paper) and in order to do this, there must be a “word grouping” feature. In other words, the *only* option is for the app to present one word at a time. I badly want that app to show me 3 or 4 words at a time (a word-chunk) to train my eyes to chinch words. Any way, this is simply a better way of reading. So I’ll wait till this feature is added and re-download and subscribe then.

Thanks a lot for the feedback! I’ll make sure to add that feature to the next update!

Wonderful tool, I only wish I could upload books

I honestly feel like if you had the right person run this by Kindle or iBooks or others they would gladly jump on it, it increases reading time by so much that honestly they would make so much more money just simply because people would buy more books. It’s seriously some of the best technology of our day! So disappointing that I can’t read through the books in my library of ebooks. Keep up the good work though, maybe in a few years this will be more available, as of right now it’s great for reading articles online!
