About Outread: Speed Reading Trainer

OutRead made its mark using the "meta guide" speed reading technique of highlighting words in a column of text, guiding eye movements and providing a sped-up version of conventional reading, but the app has also embraced the RSVP method of flashing words in quick succession. OutRead can pull material from a variety of sources, such as Pocket, Readability and Instapaper, as well as your own imported DRM-free ePub files, Word, RTF or TXT files, as well as text from your clipboard. There's even a built-in downloader for public domain ebooks to start you out.
