Learning how to read faster can do wonders for your life. In fact, speed reading is one of the most underrated skills to have. You don’t have to take an expensive course or buy crazy books to improve your reading skills. Apps such as Outread can help you train your eyes to read faster. This particular app has adjustable settings, so you are in control of the experience. All you have to do is follow the highlight and keep at it to improve. The design is quite elegant. Outread gives you a lot of control and lets you read the content that you prefer.


Outread lets you adjust the reading and marker size. It syncs with Instapaper, Pocket, and Readability, so you can read your favorite content faster. You do have the option to add from Safari or a URL. Articles are saved locally, so even when you are not online, you can still read. Each article is auto-archived when you are done with it. Users can filter and sort articles by date, length, and title. The app also gives you access to classical books, but you can add your own DRM-free ePub, Word, and .txt documents. Outread does have a RSVP mode.


Outread has two themes (day & night) and 5 fonts. It has a clean design and user-friendly interface. As long as you are willing to spend some time using it, you will be able to improve your reading speed over time. Outread keeps track of you stats to keep you honest.
