Comfort Reader 49 Classics. Relax your eyes, let the device do the work for you and increase your reading speed automatically. Preinstalled are 49 of the most popular books in history. In the full version Comfort Reader you can add books individually.

Comfort Reader takes e-book reading to a whole new level by using the resources that an iPhone/iPod Touch has to offer. It's concept is to take as much work as possible from you while you read.
It looks at the structure of the text and segments out for you phrases and pieces marked by punctuation characters. You read one piece at a time and don't get distracted by the rest of the page. It's like the author of the book is speaking directly to you: phrase for phrase, thought for thought. You decide how many words per minute you want to read. Comfort Reader waits the exact time you need before displaying the next piece automatically.
This approach accelerates your reading speed by addressing the main causes that slow down reading:

• prevention of re-reading sentences that you've already read
• no more forcing your eyes to outline strange figures: there is only one phrase to look at
• phrases instead a fixed amount of words reveals the structure of the text at a glance
• less work means more concentration for you on comprehending the text
• learn to stop subvocalization easily by increasing the displaying speed (wpm)
• no more distractions: no turning pages, no finding the right row, no weight in your hands

What is more, in Comfort Reader has a plenty of additional features:
✔ take notes, save them and send them via email
✔ (google-)translate the book you are reading on the fly in your native language
✔ set up the minimum length of the phrases that are displayed
✔ no limit of displaying speed
✔ change the look, the size of your text
✔ both portrait and landscape mode, automatic change blockable (reading while lying on the bed)
