Velocity speed reading app for iPhone Posted on Friday, September 20th, 2013 at 8:24 am. PT Written by Jim Dalrymple This is cool. It shows you one word at a time, so you can increase your speed over time. noliv There was already ReadQuick doing exactly that, and which is universal for iPhone and iPad. Plus, it has a mode with black screen for the night. I bought it and the only missing feature is adding a text from a local source, not from the internet (I add non web articles in it by putting them in my public dropbox folder… so it’s ~ok). On the reading one word at a time principle, I feel that it could be much better by adjusting a word duration depending on how common it is (= how easy it is for the brain to recognize it), slow down on numbers, and group very small and common words (“it’s a”, “I do”, “I’m”…) I think it’s interesting but I don’t use that app very often.
