Speed reading is a highly popular technique that helps people absorb the most information while reading at a fast pace. Since modern people do not have a lot of time in their schedules, they would like to get the most reading done possible in a certain amount of time. While there are various online resources that help people speed read physical books, there are not many applications that couple this feature along with the ability to read eBooks. An app called “Fastr Pro” changes that.

speed reading ebook

Fastr Pro is a smartphone application for iOS devices, sized at nearly 12 MB and requires your iPod Touch, iPhone, or iPad device to be running version 5.1 or later of iOS. Basically the app provides you with the features of effective eBook reading, saving reading progress, and speed reading with a setting that adjusts the number of words displayed on the screen.

Speed reading features also cover reading stats such as time spent reading, time left, and reading speed.

You can also add DRM-free eBooks that are in the epub file format. The Fastr website is another good app to add eBooks from.


The app is available on the iTunes app store for $2.99 but you can get it for free because the app’s developers are offering free licenses to the first 30 people who comment on this post.

    I've always wanted to read faster. Reading on an e-device seems to have slowed me down a bit. Hope this app helps.
