Speed Reading App Coming to iPhone

Wish you had more time to catch up on your reading?

The upcoming Syllable app will help readers learn how to read faster and tackle reading lists on digital devices. AppNewser has more details about the app and how to sign up once the app is available to all readers. Check it out:

The app teaches you how to speed read by avoiding subvocalization, which is when you read words to yourself vocally, a process that can slow down reading … The app pulls content from your Instapaper or Pocket account, so you can learn to read quickly while reading articles that you already wanted to read in the first place. The app isn’t widely available yet, but if you follow this link you can get an email for when it goes live.
