Great exercises but lacks guidance
This app has great exercises that will supposedly help I,prove reading speed. I think the one missing component is greater instruction re: how the various exercises should be applied. At the end of every few lessons you have a reading passage to test your improvement, but the various lessons are never specifically applied to the way the passage (or any other reading you do in daily life).

High hopes
I was really excited about using this app, but despite my enthusiasm it hasn't met my standard for what I was looking for as far really gaining comprehension and building speed in such a way that the developer advertises. It's an ok app, something to get into if your interested in building your speed reading ability, it might work for you better than me. Just seems like you put up to the next level with out any accurate indication that you need to move on to the next level, they could put more thought into this so that one may actually get real results

Great app
I'm a very slow reader. This app has helped out a lot. Now I can finally finish all those books that I started but never finished.

Good..... but could be great.
I am disappointed that READING TRAINER doesn't allow for saving imported text. I would like to use this app during Bible reading. But that is just not possible the way it is right now. Hopefully future updates will allow for easier importing and saving of texts......To say that "you can get your daily work done while practicing important reading skills" is a bit misleading in my opinion. SUGGESTED IMPROVEMENT: Allow for saving of clipboard text in separate reading lists and easier importing of text.... perhaps using the of "reader" feature of the Safari browser.

Unguided
This app has great programming and quite a few tools useful in vision therapy and speed reading but it goes completely unguided really. I didn't feel much purpose during the exercises and I feel like I was just doing the motions. All in all after 2 weeks, my reading has not improved... I've only proven to increase my ability to scan a page and find numbers. Pros: great programs that assist in vision therapy Cons: unguided making the user lack purpose and understanding during the exercises Overall: good premise but lacks actual goal of real world reading improvement.
