I like it!

This approach to improving reading speed is very useful. My test speeds have certainly increased while using it, and - the proof of the pudding, so to speak - my general reading and comprehension are more efficient.
I would love the app to have many more texts in its speed tests. That would overcome the possibility of re-reading test texts and therefore, perhaps, remembering the questions (and thus distorting scores).

Efficient and elegant!

To be honest, I recommend whose first language is not english to use this app. I am a Chinese student in the UK and I have found this app is super amazing. Even you do only one practice, you can see your improvement clearly. In the first test before I started the formal practice, my reading speed was 250 wpm along with 5/6 comprehension marks. After the very first 10-min training, I increased my wpm to 580 without decreasing my comprehension score! I believe that I can improve much more in both speed and comprehension dramatically after a few series of practices.

Enjoyable and effective

This app offers several courses from very basic techniques through to an advanced level. Each course is split into bite-size sections, which makes it easy to commit to doing a little each day. There are several types of reading exercise which helped to keep my interest, the progression between course sections is not too fast or slow, and the app makes it very easy to track progress, which is encouraging.

I'm very happy with this app, and have recommended it to several people already!
