Reading Speed and Comprehension - After an almost 40 year hiatus from school, I returned this year to finally finish off my degree. One of the things that helped keep me from getting my degree in the past was that although I have an above average intelligence, I read at a below average rate. So after acquiring my first Mac, I have been a PC user for over 30 years, I went looking for a "speed reading" tool to assist me in my quest to finally get a BS. After several unsuccessful searches in the App Store using the term "speed reading", someone suggested trying the terms "reading comprehension", which is how I ultimately found AceReader. However, comprehension wasn't my primary concern, so I decided to see if I could try the product first, which I did. After downloading a 30-day trial version and using it just once, I realized that it was indeed a "speed-reading" tool, so I bought the full version. I have only used it a few times so far, but I can already see that it is a very easy to use program that is well designed, and is exactly what I was looking for. In addition, I had a few questions regarding uploading specific reading material into the program so I placed a call to the company's support line, where I got a voice message asking me to leave my name and number for a return call, which I did. And I am very pleased to say that I received a return call from the company within a few hours. The gentleman I spoke with took all the time I needed, and answered all my questions. Hence this review. I have absolutely no qualms about highly reccommending AceReader to anyone who wants to increase his/her reading speed and/or comprehension.

Epubs?? - It’s a great app, and it does help you to read faster. I just wish that the publishers would update it to read epubs.
One of the wise investment you can buy. I would pay thousands. - Think of your mind as a bicycle. A bicycle allows you to go where you want in life. But what if you were willing to pay for a small motor to hook up to your bike. Adding a motor to you bicycle will allow you to go where you want in life twice as fast. Thats excatly what being able to read faster and more effectly does. It allows you to go where you want in life twice as fast. Like Warren Buffet says the more you learn, the more you earn. He also said if he could have one super power, it would be to be able to read faster. This program has help me do just that. You can’t put a price on something like this. $35 is way too cheap. I would pay several thousands easy. This is truly a bargin. Paying $35 can solve your problem, but only if you use this tool everyday even when you least feel like it, you will improve greatly. Just stick to it. Don’t jump ahead. With time you will see the life changing effect become a reality. Also, please be reading a book at the same time while doing this and apply. When finished with one book, read another and another. Don’t stop. You wont want to either way. You’ll be having too much fun. It will be one of the greatest thing you ever purchased. You’ll be looking back years from now, after all the books you read, thinking I made the right choice in getting that program. I do recomend this.
