Ratings and Reviews
Update: I’ve given it a few weeks now and I have significantly improved my reading speed. I love how easy it is to import articles and books. However, there’s already a good library of books included in the app, so users may not even need to import any books. I recommend this app for increasing reading speed without losing comprehension.

Hello, we don’t sell your data. Our only revenue stream is in-app purchases. We use Google Firebase only for anonymous product analytics that aren’t tied to your identity.
In the current version of Outread all your actual content (documents, books, etc.) stays on the device. We’ll be introducing an optional cloud sync and backup feature in a future update – if you decide to use it, your content will be synced through our own server. If you have any other questions, you can always reach us at email@example.com
I’ve tried a lot of readers, but Outread is hands down the best. I browse The NYT and Washington Post for articles of interest. Using the Share extension I can quickly and seamlessly add them to Outread. I do most of my reading using the Spritz method, and Outread has added some fantastic features such as customizable settings for the length of pauses at the end of sentences, after commas, etc. You can sort the items in your list alphabetically, by length of article, or by items most recently added. The developers have really thought of everything to facilitate the reading process. There is even a good collection of classics you can read for free.
My favorite of all
I’ve tried every speed reading app I could find on apple and google play stores... this one is hands down my favorite when it comes to functionality, simplicity, and stability. I hope this app is around forever. I use it daily and it has my literary journey so much easier. I believe it is worth every penny.
Also, the developers of this app are amazing. I had a problem after an update. They looked into it promptly.
