[prMac.com] Portland, Oregon - The top-selling speed reading application on the iPhone app store, QuickReader, has launched a new version that upgrades its market leading speed reading technology, offering a significantly enhanced eBook reader interface, and integrating with Facebook and Twitter.
With the release of the new version, QuickReader is also announcing a partnership with Feedbooks, a pioneer in the standardization of eBook distribution. The deal gives QuickReader users instant access to 6500+ free public domain and self-published EPUB books directly from within the application.
"QuickReader 2.0 provides a unique reading experience on the iPhone and iPod touch. We are glad that we can support this kind of diversity through our OPDS catalog and also help people improve their speed reading abilities through this unique eBook reader," said Hadrien Gardeur, Founder of Feedbooks.
Improving your personal productivity through speed reading is an ability that can be learned over time. Using a specially developed reading guide, QuickReader teaches you how to double or even triple your reading speed in just 10 minutes per day right on your mobile phone. The speed of the reading guide can be adjusted from 100 to 4000 words per minute, fast enough for even Superman!
148Apps said in a review of the eBook reader, "QuickReader is a speed reading tool that can produce remarkable results. I was shocked by the rate at which my speed improved. Your mileage may vary, but if you're a frequent reader you owe it to yourself to give this one a go."
QuickReader is an iPhone eBook reader that combines proven speed reading technology bundled with the books and content that readers enjoy. QuickReader is also a state of the art conventional eBook reader, which can be custom tailored to match a user's most demanding reading habits. The app comes packaged with a great set of 50 books to get started, and provides instant access to a library of thousands of downloadable titles, all from a one click interface. Users can also download books from other book catalogs such as the Internet Archive and Calibre2OPDS, and very shortly will offer an exciting iPad version on the App Store.
