Awesome APP! and for Kindle Fire I originally purchased this for my 10 year old. He is not crazy about reading so I wasn’t sure… but it turns out he loves this. Probably because it’s on my phone, so I am anxious for it to be launched in a PC Version. In the meantime, he is reading more and his comprehension has been amazing. I’m very pleased.And for me, it works great on my Kindle Fire.However, the one thing Kindle users need to keep in mind, is the default Download Directory will contain the text file they have obtained. You need to use the file selector in HyperTime to go to the Download Directory and load your new text files right into HyperTime.(I’ve actually talked with the developers and they are working on a free upgrade that will download it to your books directory saving you any extra steps}. Looking for that soon!
Surprisingly helpful for my dyslexia I’m dyslexic. And though over the decades, I’ve overcome much of it, my reading speeds are still _much_ slower than what would be considered as normal.I don’t know how or why it works, but I found that reading the text as Hyper Time displays it, one word at a time, I don’t seem to have the troubles with words or letters being just “symbols-without-meaning.”The playback speed goes up to 1,000 words a minute… and I thought that it would be ridiculous for me to even think of trying it at that speed. But strangely enough, though I don’t recall the text word-for-word, I seem to have nonetheless gotten the gist of what the text was about. (Don’t ask me how… I _really_ don’t understand how this should be even possible.)I wish I’d had this when I was going through college! (I can just imagine how fast people without dyslexia could read with it.)It does only read .txt files, (I hope a future version will be able to read .PDF’s or even web-pages,) but even so, for something under $4.00 to be able to help me read more quickly than I _ever_ though I would, (and more easily remember what I’ve read,) I’m amazed, and very happy with it.I never used Twitter before this app, so I really can’t comment on it all that much… but it was pretty neat to search for “@NPR” and read messages from hosts I’ve listened to on the radio for years.
