Best Windows 8 Apps

This is one of the better speed reading programs I've tried. The exercises are more varied and enjoyable than simply reading and rereading various passages of writing.

My brain has a huge issue with fixation and fatigue. I could sit and try to read 15 pages and barely remember what I read, but I read from the novel I've been trying to get through for weeks now and went through 45 pages in a couple of hours. Thanks Reading Trainer!

Спасибо разрабам за полезное приложение. Помогло мне развить концентрацию при чтении, хотя я всего на 10м блоке.

This app is making real changes in personal improvement. It helps to read things with different technique and absorb a lot of information quickly. Thanks for the great app.

I am a certified Reading Teacher. I purchased this app for use with an adult who has Broca's Aphasia. This app is effective and varied enough to maintain interest.

Fun, easy to use app to learn how to speed read. Each unit takes just a few minutes and consists of eight short training exercises. I've only had it for a couple of weeks but the training seems to be working.

This app is working pretty good so far, I have seen a little improvement in my reading speed but nothing to great, I'll continue to use.

missing star is for;
1. lack of ability to sync progress between multiple devices or restore in case of a reset
2. need to pay for both windows8 and phone apps,

One may not expect to find a functional program, that tests your reading speed, and uses the result to accommodate you with appropriate exercises to increase reading speed for a one time fee of only a few dollars.
Quite interesting to play this game

Half way thru. The instructions are clear, the design is good, and the exercises seem like they ought to help.

I can see a difference in my ability to read faster after just one week. The longer I use the app, the better I have become at reading faster and retaining what was viewed. Now I will have my elementary aged children use this to strengthen their skills. Wonderful application, I really like it.

Your going to love this app.

The app definitely doubled my reading speed in about 3 weeks! After 3 weeks, I was reading around 525 WPM. Unfortunately, it seems I've hit a plateau and can't seem to get passed 650 WPM reading speed, which I've been stuck at for about 3 weeks. After using the app for about 7 weeks, I was hoping to be reading somewhere around 1,000 WPM, but any increase is better than none. And for a nominal price, the ROI can be infinite! A recommend for anyone wanting to spend a few bucks wisely.

I'm ashamed to say that my wpm was only 216 and my comprehension was 65% of this course. After four days of doing the curriculum and some of the exercises (one hour per day for four days), my wpm increased to 261 with nearly 90%-100% comprehension. Although it has been only half a week, I'm looking forward to the end results for when this program finishes.

It is amazing.

Great app. I am very busy so thus far only set aside about 10 minutes a day. My reading speed has increased by about 25% after a month of using this app, but I am sure that spending more time with the app and doing some more reading would give better results. Highly recommended.

I really like this app and as long as you have pretty good vocabulary and can spell, the exercises are good. My only problem with it is I would like to have my children use the app but the reading level is too advanced for them. Otherwise I would have given it five stars.

In no time went from beginner to expert! Highly recommend to everybody wanting to increase reading speed.

I'm not sure if it's working just yet but it is fun.

I have this app on Windows and Android. If you use this everyday your reading will definitely improve. When I first started using it my WPM was right around 200ish. I took a break for about 3 months (you know you get bored etc.) I have come back and after a week my WPM is up to about 303. I'm reading faster and it helps you begin a love of reading. It helps you get through the drudgery of reading manuals and textbooks with no problem. When all you want back is your time this app helps move you in that direction.
Some things that I wish would change on the app is the standard text and stories. After a while you begin to memorize the material especially as you get into the higher levels. You find that you have read the same story for a test a couple of times. I think that will give you a false sense of accomplishment.
Other than that it is awesome.
