Read faster and more easily with our digital reading technology, which has has won awards from Stanford and United Nations!

Here's how it works: instead of using plain black text, we display text using eye-guiding color gradients. These gradients flow from the end of one line to the beginning of the next, so that when you move your eyes from right to left, they're automatically drawn to the appropriate line.

Vision, literacy, and medical experts agree that BeeLine Reader improves reading speed and reading ability for readers of all ages and skill levels. It is particularly helpful for readers with dyslexia, ADD, or vision impairments—some readers are able to read over 50% faster with BeeLine.

Love it

I read all my news with this app, mostly by using the share extension to save articles to my read-later list. Love all the text formatting options, especially the BeeLine colors that help me read faster.

The Kindle feature is also cool, and really easy to use, but I’m not sure why its iPad only. I want it on my iPhone too!

I wish there were a way to have BeeLine appears in all my apps, but I don’t think Apple lets apps work that way.

Short sighted

The idea behind BeeLine Reader and associated apps is wonderful. Implementation, functionality, and actual usage falls very short.
Missing very key & simple functionality that would allow you to use on your own documents. How about BeeLine's own web based PasteBoard ? Why isn't that at least in the app allowing users to create their own content using this uniquely wonderful font? Or tie-in better with other apps to either send documents from there to BeeLine (it pretends to want to do this, but fails), or function as a plugin directly with other apps (or partner with them for added user experience)?
Really missing the mark on the potential application. The lack of being able to do any of this is why I continue not using this app or purchasing the pro version.

Developer Response ,

We wish we could do all of the things that you suggest, but unfortunately Apple's framework does not allow it. We can only send web-based documents via the share extension, or integrate with Safari via the action extension. Beyond this, we are unable to integrate with other apps without their cooperation. As for the pasteboard, you can access this from any web browser, for free :)

Simple but Effective

While it isn't compatible with everything and it glitches a lot on certain sites, it is very useful for what it advertises as. It's allowed me to finish novels and articles much quicker than I have in the past. I would recommend this for anybody who likes to read on their phone or tablet but find difficulty with blurriness or following along with cramped text.
