Very few drawbacks, awesome app!
This app is a wonderful way to breeze through a long read! There are only a few drawbacks: no bookmark feature (meaning you start all over from the beginning if you leave the app), no way to drop the current web page in Safari (or email message in Mail) to the app (requires a copy & paste of the entire text- sometimes tricky on some web sites), etc.
There are only a few serious flaws with the app: 1- there are often words presented before & after a period (kind of breaks the delays for a pause in the text for more natural reading); 2- no pause for excessively long words or names; and 3- the app does not prevent the phone from auto-locking & turning off the screen (worse yet, if your screen does go off & auto-locks, the text does NOT stop playing- so it behaves as if the screen didn't turn off & lock on you).
Overall, however, this is and excellent app!
A Few Major Flaws but Otherwise Great
For the most part, I love this app. It helps me concentrate on boring article, speeds up my reading, and it is mostly an easily navigable app.
One major problem us that the resume times are horribly inaccurate and it can be hard to find your spot in larder texts. Another feature I would love to see is a 10 second rewind button. Something will catch my eye and I’ll look away for two seconds and end up having to reread a whole minute because when going backwards, it is very difficult to get to the right spot.
Will keep using!
Love it. But know it's limits
This is outstanding and is better than any spritz app I have used. According to the developer this predates spritz so don't expect spritz.
Also if you have a kindle...there is no spritz reader on the market that works for kindle (nice one star review).
The work around is to download a program that converts kindle files to text. Then upload your books and voila! Having bought almost every speed reader, this is the one I would get.
