"Spdr is the Swiss Army Knife of reading apps." -Enzo, Spdr reader People normally read at a rate of 150-200 words per minute. With Spdr (pronounced “Speeder”), you can instantly double that without even trying and still retain the same amount of information. There is no learning or effort required. Watch the app preview videos above to experience it before downloading. Then, download Spdr and try it out for yourself for free. Here's how Spdr works: Spdr displays words one-by-one, with Punctuation Pauses giving Spdr a natural and seamless feel. Rather than moving your eyes across and down a page like you normally would, Spdr allows you to absorb text as it is presented. This means your eyes don't have to work as hard, enabling you to read and retain more text faster without your eyes getting tired and fatiguing. We recommend starting at double the average adult reading speed, or 300-400 words per minute, and working your way up as you feel comfortable. Spdr is free for you to try in order to see whether the technique works for you: (1) Simply copy most links or any text and paste into the text box in Spdr (2) Set your desired words-per-minute rate (3) Hold down anywhere on the screen to start, and lift to pause Upgrade to Spdr Pro. Pay once. No subscription. No sign up: Because Spdr is so powerful and useful, upgrade to Spdr Pro for a nominal one-time fee and receive unlimited feature access. Spdr truly is the "killer reading app," because it saves you time. You'll never want to read anything without it again. Spdr Pro includes: (1) Save text for later and read on Apple Watch (2) Speed-read PDFs, Word docs, books (.epub files) and more (3) Read & save Spdr from Apple News and your favorite websites.

This app does not work. I purchased the app for $4.99. Books do not download to the app as they are supposed to. I have contacted but no one has responded. I am requesting a refund and waiting for a response.
It’s sole function is to allow me to read my books faster. However it crashes every time I try to import my books, so now I’m not reading anything. I would love a refund.
Just read your book. Read your article. The more you do this, the faster you will get at reading. It won’t help to have words flashing at you on a screen.
That was the single most painful tutorial I’ve ever been forced to use. Please let us skip that thing. The entire point of your app is to help us read fast. So the first experience is, naturally, the opposite of that. Good job.
Program needs web reader mode by default. Each time I copy a link or send the link to the app, I end up with all the sidebar junk I don’t want to read.
I bought premium to read large files but this app freezes when trying to load them. Not worth any money.
Some sites don’t load the entire article. On fs.blog for example, Spdr only ever grabs the first 255 words. I have another speed reading app Outread that seems to grab the whole article for comparison. BUT I prefer the way Spdr displays text and integrates with Safari. So I hope the team fixes it so I can use more Spdr.
This app is a good idea but the main text importation doesn’t even work. When importing text from pages or another app the app crashes and closes itself. Making the only way to use it via picture mode or type yourself.
The only thing that could be fixed is the letter detection when using the camera to import text
I tried the free version to get a feel for this app. I liked it so I paid the $5.99 to get as free version. Then it stopped working. Will not load the content. No where can I find a way to get a refund.
