Who would have thunk it? I’m can actually read faster, thus reading more, saving time, and being more productive. So good to me. Where do I sign up?
Well, werD (pronouced weird?) over at xda-developers has created WordStreamer, a speed reading tool. Here’s what he has to say:
“WordStreamer (aka MiniMuncher) is a speed reading tool that I put together for myself and all of you wonderful people. It works on the principle that our brains only process text when our eyes are not moving. WordStreamer simply streams a text file a set number of words at a time, at a rate specified by you. Since your eyes are not traveling from line to line and across the page, this allows you to read at a faster rate in no time by simply pressing up to increase the rate at which the words are displayed.”
Seems weird and interesting to me, but what do you expect from a developer named werD.
