This app provides everything you need to read texts of all types faster, more effectively and most of all, with better retention.

The PowerReader allows you to get your daily work done while practicing important reading skills.
Learning reading techniques has never been this much fun!
Double your reading speed in just a few days.

Trial users have used this software to increase their reading speed by an average of 143% in 10 days.

Do you currently need 30 minutes to read the daily paper? Soon you will read two papers and, in addition, another chapter in an interesting non-fiction book – within the same time period.
Combining the iPhone with this entirely new app provides the ideal platform to achieve measurable results with a minimum of effort.

But that’s not all: You will have fun mastering the skills you need to attain effective reading techniques and significantly increase your reading speed; this means:
- Rapid recognition of numbers, letters and words
- Flexible eye movements
- Improved ability to concentrate
- Increased vision span

The app guides you through the individual training steps.
The software immediately recognizes your strengths and weaknesses. The statistics function lets you see and track your progress.
The results of each training exercise are charted for your review. More stars mean that you are getting closer to your objective: more effective reading skills and with it extremely high reading speeds.

You can check your reading speed at any time using different reading tests from a variety of topics.
Questions about the text are used as a secondary test to assess your retention ability. This is the ideal combination for mastering effective reading skills and high retention rates.

But beware: you might get hooked since early progress will motivate you to work on your skills regularly.
It is fun and you are doing something to stay mentally fit at the same time.

We recommend that you train regularly but not excessively to ensure best results.

The New Birdman ,

Excellent!!!, I hope version will remain useable or be updated

I love this app. In one week I’ve nearly doubled my reading speed AND, at the same time, am comprehending more of what I read. The exercises are well designed and the power reading feature where I can practice my speed with copied text is also useful. My only concern is that it’s been 3 years since the last update. I hope that either this current version will continue to work on future versions of iOS, or that the developers will update when needed. A+, well worth the $3.

Great for Dyslexia, Discalculia, and Being Fast!

I’ve actually taught speed reading and I appreciate the potential of an app that helps with screen speed reading, which is different than techniques for printed word.
However, I have dyscalculia, which is like dyslexia but for numbers, and I question the veracity of basing much of your score off of finding numbers among numbers, which I would argue is an unrealistic skill to need in almost any field.
Yes, numbers are important, but finding them in a sea of other numbers is not a skill I’ve ever needed, and doesn’t seem relevant to the goal of reading text on screens faster and more effectively.
Otherwise, a useful app.

UPDATE: I stand corrected! I’ve noticed a huge difference in how quickly I perceive numbers and how quickly I read! I’m so impressed, I can’t recommend this app enough.

So far, appears to do the right things

So far, this app seems to do exactly what it says it will do. It seems as though it is written by an austere group of people like college professors. One of the things it could use is some help from more creative graphics/colors/font choice from the people that write the app Elevate. So far, it seems to do exactly what it says it will do. If one wants to improve their reading skills, this app is right on track.
