Only been using this for about 2 weeks, but have seen improvement already.
I read dreadfully slow. The exercises really push you. I like that the program is structured ... A plus for OCD like me.
Tooth the test after the first lesson and improved over 300 WPA. Now just have to translate that to my normal reading. I've seen improvement there, just not that much.
One suggestion: I moved into the the intermediate for the 2nd round and it is so fast it is discouraging. I would recommend 5 levels instead of 3 for a more incremental increase. I was walking, you got me jogging. Going from jogging to sprinting is really ... Maybe jogging to running and then to sprinting. I'll keep at it, maybe it's just what I need. I'll send another review when I finish the next level.
Great so far tho.

Spend less time reading while reading MORE!

In today's information-flooded society, two skills are required to wade through the chaos. First, you must be able to differentiate the reliable, credible information from the empty babble. Second, you need to be able to absorb the information quickly and accurately. This app will help you in the latter. You will notice real improvement almost instantly. I'm a medical student and reading highly technical textbooks doesn't help to rid myself of bad reading habits such as sub-vocalization. My reading WPM increased from 300 to 417 after the first training module.

I am always skeptical of advertising claims and I tried the free version before taking the $10 plunge. It did what it said it should do: improved my reading speed and comprehension. I think software like this could cost much more. $10 is a very reasonable price to pay for this excellent bit of software.

very interesting!

I am relatively new to speed reading. I tried some software on my computer about 10 years ago but I had no discipline then and I didn't stick with it. I didn't like reading and just wanted to cut my time down when studying.

When I did finally grow up and realize the power of reading, I couldn't find enough time to do all of the reading that I need to do! I was planning on spending over $700 on a very well known course for speed reading.

I tried this app first and I can say that it is handy. I did see results almost immediately, at least in the app itself. I did make one mistake when I decided to do too many courses in one day (hoping to speed the process up) and I made my eyes very tired for a few days.

I did not feel like I was really reading faster outside of the app until I had taken the Beginner course two times. After that, I see all written words differently and have read a few 'classic' books in half the time that I used to.

I will be shelling out the big money for the well known program in the future, but for now I do plan to keep using this application to increase myself.

I also like that I can add my own books and use them in the Training Center part of the app. That has helped me to stay focus on my books, and I need all the help that I can get.

I definitely recommend this app.
