Description

Eye Web is a mobile browser with a clear focus in one super-feature: Speed Reading the Web.

Do you spend too much time on the Internet? Are you feeling you just don't have enough capability to absorb all the information and bits of wisdom coming at you daily? Is your Web activity draining away at your life juices?

What if it was possibile to read faster? What if you could actually read faster, scan faster, but more importantly, with as much comprehension as you could do so?

An adult's standard average reading speed is 250 words per minute. As a child it was 200. Not much of an improvement.

Enter Eye Web

As you enter the main screen you will have a full screen browsing experience that gives you back those lost extra pixels on your mobile internet experience. You will have full direct control over the navigation. An uncluttered screen space. Content exporting and direct access to your delicio.us bookmarks.

You browse around the web and reach an interesting long article you want to know about. You click the Speed Reading Button. This fish-eye icon unleashes the power of your brain to absorb as much information as you want to. The paragraphs in the page are now skipping words before your eyes. With no need to scan the page, you just relax and take it all in, effortlessly.

Speed

The words per minute slider gives you fine control over the experience. You can control the speed, the tempo, the pace. What is the limit on this? How many words per minute (wpm) can you take in? Every person is different but the bar is usually higher than you think. Expect roughly 600 wpm. You can vary the speed in expectation for what you want to extract from the material.

At 500 to 800 wpm you can leverage your time to quickly go through a large body of knowledge and still keep up about 75% comprehension. You might think this is unacceptable, but knowing that even at the slow and steady 200 wpm most adults just have a 50% compreenshion level puts things in perspective. In fact you don't need to capture all words to grasp the full meaning of a text. Reading slower is counterproductive.

Adaptation

With speed reading comes immediate disorientation. Your mind will try to adapt, and it will adapt. After disorientation, rapid adaptation follows. Soon you will kick in the high gear. You will take in all the content as fast as you can; you will keep adapting and expect to break your natural record. You can just skim it at faster speeds for a broad content awareness, or set at a comfortable 600 wpm for deep article knowledge. Its all under your control.

Adaptation Phase II

With increase usage something else happens. You put Eye Web down and New York Times feels different. Suddenly you are scanning faster. Your mind caugh up on you and you are reading faster even in your "off-line" world. Brain adaptation has brought you new super-hero skills. This will seem stunning.

Finally: You are able to Experience Reading like you never been able to. Fast.

And yet, you were just having fun while doing it.

Priceless

:
This is my first review. This app has a fantastic user interface but even better it is what it does. Long passages of text are effortless to read. I may become a faster reader but in the mean time reading just became a whole lot easier.
Thank you very much for making one of my favorite apps:)

4/5 stars

Nice for speed reading

:
This is a very neat app for those trying to better their reading skills. My only suggestion would be to better support the retina display.

4/5 stars

Solid app for speed reading the web.

:
A good balance of features and simplicity. I'd like more fine tune control over the colors, and some other minor improvements, but overall this is a solid effort.
