[prMac.com] Helsinki, Finland - Announcing that Fifty Sixty Software, the developers of WordBag, has released the latest update to their extraordinary reading application. This is a full-service reading app with a polished interface that enables easy reading of a user's copy and pasted text from internet sites. The text is stored on the iDevice and can be called up and read quickly, with larger fonts and a Rapid Visual Serial Presentation format for a comfortable reading experience that's easy on the eyes.
Wordbag is a handy reader application that is simple to operate. When a user comes across something they want to read, they only have to copy and paste the text into the WordBag app. All text files are stored for later reading, which provides an extra measure of convenience for busy people. When a user is ready to read something they've saved in WordBag, all they have to do is select the text they're interested in, turn the phone sideways and start reading.
The app uses a technique called Rapid Visual Serial Presentation (RSVP), which displays text, one word at a time in serial format, always in the same location on the screen. The font is much larger and easier to see and users have control over the speed in which the words move. This provides users with a much more comfortable experience that is less straining on the eyes.
Developers have given this app a polished interface and easy-to-use multi-touch controls, making it super simple to read large amounts of text, anytime and anywhere. A tap of the screen will pause, rewind, fast forward and control the reading speed.
* Stores large amounts of copy and pasted text
* Most recent saves are displayed first for quick retrieval
* Multi-touch controls for easy pausing, rewinding, fast forwarding and adjusting the reading speed
* Rapid Visual Serial Presentation technique displays words one at a time, in a much larger font
* Provides a unique, comfortable reading experience on an iDevice
* Pause-at-punctuation feature makes reading much more comfortable and easier to follow.
Although it is true that WordBag can help users to learn to read at a faster pace, the real treasure in this app is how easily it enables reading a lot of text on an iDevice screen. Users no longer have to zoom and scroll in order to clearly see volumes of words. The best part is that they don't have to squint anymore, either.
* iPhone or iPod Touch 3.0 or later
