iOS eBook Reader app with speed reading function
What this clever little program offers is essentially a two part program:
- Access to well over 2 million free books (and counting, according to developer Inkstone Mobile) once the app has been installed on your device, essentially giving you a lifetimes worth of books for just $4.99.
- The ability to fully customize any setting within the app to cater to your needs, from font style to words per minute and more.
QuickReader, as with most apps of this style currently found only on the iTunes app store and is fully compatible with iOS 7, allowing it to be utilized on any incarnation of the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
Amongst other functions, this tool is able to:
- Take your daily reading material, from novels to short stories, newspaper articles to magazines and allow you to learn the techniques of speed reading whilst you catch up on developments around the world.
- Give you access to an extensive virtual library of a huge selection of publications, from contemporary classics to the latest crime thrillers.
- The app is now fully hands free once you start your reading for the day, removing the need to turn pages and select new reading manually.
- Everything on screen is now fully customizable too; turn your bookcase as pretty or gruff as you like with 4 million colors and numerous styles to choose from.

QuickReader Review: Things to know
QuickReader is both impressive as a speed reading app and a virtual library, and it is this access to such an extensive collection that is one of its real defining features. It also helps to justify the small price tag further. The amazing user friendliness of the app is also a major plus point, allowing you to read in style and sophistication.
The software does not come up smelling entirely of roses however. For one, you have access to over 2 million titles. But if you want to read them using their built in technology, depending upon what you pick as reading material it may be an issue. Not all the titles are configured for the app, so whilst you have the books to read, if you want to increase your reading speed you may be out of luck.
This issue renders half of the features of QuickReader basically useless, and whilst more titles are becoming available, in reality it is a somewhat misleading marketing scheme that only portrays half the picture.
Despite these fundamental flaws, the access to over 2 million titles for a one off payment is a considerable feature to have and when QuickReader works, it works incredibly well. If you are looking to buy this app just be aware that, whilst you do technically get access to 4 million titles, if you want to utilize speed reading techniques to comprehend them you may be left a little disappointed.
Quickreader Lite: There is also a lite version available with limited access to features, catalog and settings.
