Speed Reading Trainer


Ivy Standard presents Speed Reading Trainer!

This speed reading app is a fun, effective and FREE way to increase your reading abilities. This app uses the fundamentals of metaguiding and viewing exercises to train your eyes to process text quicker. We have also included a diagnostic tool so you can check your progress as you read!

The average adult reads at about 250 words per minutes with a 70% comprehension rate. Students who have used the Ivy Standard system have seen increases of up to 500 WPM in as little as two weeks of use.

Development of this app is made possible through support from our sponsors. If you would like an ad-free version (as well as unlimited speeds, comprehension questions, and integration options), try the full version of this app!

Short FAQ:
Q: Why does this app require permissions?
A: Basically, we use these permissions to run basic app functions:

Internet / Network State
Our app pulls reading material and comprehension questions from a central database so that you can see updated books / questions without having to download a new version of the app. Every time you open the app, the database is updated! Since this is only text (and occasionally a small cover picture) data usage should be very minimal.

Write / Storage Permissions / Phone State
We need to write the downloaded data onto your device for two reasons:
-to allow you to use our program in the event that you do not have an internet connection
-to save bandwidth so you don't need to download the data if you already have it!

Once again, the data we store is only text, so space used is minimal (usually under 1 MB).

**We do not collect any personally identifying information or store any other unwanted information on your device!

Recent changes:
**To any users experiencing difficulties with the last version - our apologies for the inconvenience - we are working hard to bring you the best, error free product.

-This new version should fix any database errors.
-Please note that you may need to uninstall and then reinstall the app if you experience any difficulties
-Load times should be much faster
-Less choppiness in general

Good mechanics, bad app. The actual training is really good. I can feel myself getting faster with any of the three options. However, that does not cover the fact that this app has the WORST UI EVER. It closes me out randomly after canceling an advertisement. I mean, sure, it could be solved by buying the full version but it cheats! Every time I try to buy it, the play store tells me that the product can't be found. Why would you advertise a full version if I can purchase it?? Also, it won't save my diagnosis stats. Fix this.

Use Speed Reading Coach instead I really like the 3 different training methods as well as the option to test current speed. However, the app will delete all statistics every time it is closed. Furthermore, reading progress is not tracked, and it is difficult to measure or increase comprehension when the same material is read repeatedly. Additionally, the ads are quite excessive. Every tap prompts 2 popup ads with tiny exit buttons. No option to read your own material. Use Speed Reading Coach by Novellectual instead.

Too many adds and the readingsame are boring as hell. Also yellow background and weird formating and font don't help for a good test 9f reading speed.
