Works. Needs next level improvements

I like it. It took me some time to figure out how to get media to read (without constantly copy/pasting articles or pages). A better explanation of how to get books. It would also be helpful if Apple Books app books were accessible. Lastly, rather than flashing on word at a time, but faster, I would like the option to select how many words appear at a time. It would be better to glance at multi-word phrases.

Hello and thank you for your review, we appreciate your feedback. We will work to incorporate a more thorough tutorial. In the meantime, simply shake the phone to view the current tutorial. We are currently working on making Spdr accessible with more apps. We like the idea of being able to read phrases and will take a look at incorporating this in future updates. Thank you for your support and have a great rest of your weekend.

Just Incredible, Thank You

I was instantly sold on this app/tool when I completed the introduction tutorial. This app is genius in my opinion. I was reading lightning fast, 300 words a minute and still retaining the information. This is so darn cool.

Thank you for this brilliant application but also, most especially for selling this app ethically with a one-time purchase price and no subscription garbage. I cannot tell you how grateful and thankful that I am to you for being a rad developer and not ruining your app with a subscription.

I'm always more inclined to buy any application or video game if there is no subscription plan attached to them. So, again, I commend you and thank you for being an upstanding developer and for the amazing work that I believe you did with this groundbreaking app.

Oh, and also, I just love that, Spdr, will allow me to import .epub book files. That makes this app even more worth the asking price in my opinion. I have tons of public domain .epub books that I've been meaning to tackle for forever now and I think using Spdr will be the absolute best and most efficient way to read them all. So, thank you for that awesome option as well, I'm so excited to finally read Jules Verne, H.G. Wells, Agatha Christie, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Bram Stoker and so many more with this program 👏🏻😁👍🏻.

Thank you sincerely for this program and the ethical way you chose to sell it. Developers like you are a rare breed today in my opinion.

This is the most incredible and thoughtful review we have ever received. Printing, framing, and going on the wall. Thank you very much for your support.

This app is surprisingly helpful

I was doubtful at first about whether this app would help me but I’ve realized that it does. It’s really easy to set up and control and I’ve been happy with the free trail so far :). If you have trouble focusing on reading or are really slow I HIGHLY recommend that you get his app. I’ve been reading very boring books, most recently about Human Rights :/ , I tried out the camera mode and it really helped!

Developer Recommendation:
I looked at other apps such as Focus. One interesting feature they have are two lines on going across the screen which helps you focus. Another thing they have is they make one of the letters in the word red so you can focus on that. I think it would be cool if you made this a toggle feature. Another idea I have is something that I don’t expect you to do but it may help people remember things. Neuroscience found that when you take information from two senses you are more likely to remember it later on. This is why it’s helpful to read something out loud. Using that logic it may be really cool if there was a read along versions.

Keep up the good work.

Hello and thank you for your review! We really appreciate you taking the time to provide such detailed feedback. To address your individual points: included in Spdr Pro ($5 once, enjoy forever, no subscription, no sign up), you have the ability to change the highlight color among green, blue, and red when you are in Targeted Alignment Mode. To do this, toggle Targeted Alignment Mode (far right option in the alignment picker) and then press the button just right of that until you get to "R" for red. We also offer Spdr Learn, which is available for everyone. Spdr Learn automatically activates between 25 and 75 words per minute and includes optional voice assist. We have a ton of great new and helpful features that we are rolling out in the next several updates. Stay tuned. Thank you for your support.
