Using these speed reading apps you can stay productive no matter what device you use.
When we take up activities like reading we will think as to how quickly it can be finished. In the olden days reading means only reading of paper books. At present, in our digital age the physicality of a paper book has been replaced by the concept of e-paper on screen as everything we want to read is available on screen and we can read in this from newspapers to ebooks. Just like how we want to speed read paper books, in the same way we have to think while reading on the web or on mobile phones and tablets. Otherwise, so much of our valuable time will be wasted in reading slowly and we may lose focus on what we are reading.
