Whether you're on the train, bus, or subway, you'll never again have to grab a book from your bag again. Wear Reader™ lets you speed-read books straight from your wrist while you're on the go. Simply upload your favorite book to your iPhone, attach your Apple Watch, and you're ready to read!
Wear Reader has two reading modes: Speed Reading and Traditional. Speed reading flashes text rapidly on the screen one word at a time to suppress your inner vocalization and allow you to read quickly while still fully understanding the text. Missed a spot and have to go back? No problem! Use the fast-forward and rewind buttons to adjust your spot. Tap to pause the stream to take a break and see how you are doing, and tap again to resume.
Not into speed reading? Wear Reader™ now supports a traditional reading mode where you can read like you always have. Simply choose this option in settings, and use the digital crown on the right of the Apple Watch to scroll up and down the page.

Ratings and Reviews
Frustrating but promising
If this worked as intended, this app would be amazing. Books on your wrist, everywhere you go! And actually an attractive interface as well. But constant crashes hold it back. I’m trying to reinstall again - I don’t want to give up on it yet! Developer, please fix the reliability.
Great way to expand the functionality of your Apple Watch
I had my Apple Watch for about 8 months before finding this app and admittedly I didn't use it much and was a little disappointed I had spent the money on it. However, after finding this app I won't be caught without my watch. I love that I can read anytime I have some down time. Whether I'm waiting in line, riding the subway or taking a break at lunch all I have to do is look at my wrist to catch up on my reading. I prefer to read using the Traditional Method where I manually scroll through "pages" of the book with many words on the screen at one time instead of the speed reading method that shows one word at a time, but I'm sure some people prefer the other method. Definitely worth using this app.
App works better than well
I want to say thanks for the app. A few reviewers point out that the Apple Watch auto-off setting interrupts reading. And though at first this was disappointing, I found that by placing my finger on the edge of the screen while using the app the auto-off never triggers. I hope people are aware of this! A simple mod that turned Wear Reader into the app I'd been waiting for. Productivity doubled. Well, best wishes and thanks for this weird fabulous idea. I believe that all mobile reading apps will be rapid serial within 7 or 8 years and hope you folks get some deserved credit for that.
