Instant Speed Reading Android App

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but it seemed like the closest fit. If it's not, I'll gladly move it or remove it altogether.

I have a new app that I've released for speed reading. It takes a different approach than I've seen used on any other app. It forces your eyes to track down the page focusing on 2 points per line of text at an increasing speed. This gets your eyes moving in the way that they need to be for speed reading. Once they've picked up speed, your brain tends to catch up pretty quickly (since it basically has no choice .

A long time ago, I found a small flash application that used this technique and it worked amazingly well for me. I've since been unable to find it again or anything else that works in a similar way.

Experienced speed readers may have already progressed past this technique already, but I've seen that this is quickest way to increase reading speed for novices and beginners.

Since I've read other posts in the forum about speed reading that had a decent amount of discussion around them, I thought that some people here might be willing to try it out and give me some feedback.

Right now, the app price is 0.99, but I plan to raise it to 4.99 in a month or so.

The Play Store link is https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ntspeedreading

Thanks.

Maybe consider leaving it as free for a two week period to get some feedback and momentum on download tally?

bobinatcat,
I like that idea, but when I tried to do it, Google Play won't let me change the app to free then back to paid. They say it's so people won't skew download numbers. I guess that makes sense...
I can email the .apk to anyone who wants it here on the board if they promise to give me some feedback on it, though!

Froido and bobinatcat,
I sent you both APKs of the app. Let me know what you think. You'll have to allow apps from other sources within the Settings page on your Android device before you can install it from an APK file.
Thanks!
