A browser and mobile safari extension that lets you speed read your favorite web content like NYTimes, HuffPo, ESPN, blogs, or any other web site. It is powered by Spritz technology. It is the best speed reading app for web content on iOS! Boba takes advantage of iOS8 action extensions, it let's you speed read content right in Safari! Look for the lightening glasses icon.
It comes with some default bookmarks but the app is customizable. You can change it to be your favorite sites! You can also customize the words per minute, as your comprehension and speed improve.
Send your feedback, improvements, problems, etc to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please make sure to include the site url you were trying to access, the device & OS version, as well as any other information that might be useful. We will do our best to incorporate user's input into future releases of the app.

Functional - extension needs work
The iOS 8 extension is the whole reason I installed this app. It works, but it would be great if it loaded text faster, and also if it allowed you to change the speed right there in the extension itself. It seems you can only change speed in the main app, and that setting doesn't seem to sync to the browser extension. Hoping future updates will help!
I enjoy the app. But there are those of us who suffer from tryphophobia, which is the fear of a succession of tiny holes which make your logo for the app. For lack of a better term, disturbing. Idk if it's possible to make it different. To avoid freaking out by accident I have to put it in a folder away from the main screen and click it quickly then distract myself in order to forget I saw it.

1 billion stars if they can figure out how to allow us to read books we have purchased (iBooks) using their app.
Why can't we decide how we want to read a book we have purchased?
I read all my news, financial, and sports, web pages (and apps) using boba now...
