Best speed reader ever! Balto let's you completely customize how long of pauses there are for words. I like short pauses for punctuation, and longer pauses for names and such. It sucks that the devs are getting in trouble with Spritz though, because this app is way better than their app. :(

Chris Fink-Jensen

The Best RSVP Reader by Far I spent days looking for a reader that would do what I wanted. Balto is the closest thing to perfect I've found. Here's why: -sentence streaming: the key word is highlighted, but the words before and after are also dimly visible. This really helps if you miss a word. -key letter and place markings: I find that having a marker helps me read faster. I started at 300 words and can comfortably read 550 now. -excellent pause controls: you can control the pace to slow at punctuation and long words. This makes a huge difference and makes the pacing feel more narural - scrolling: easy to pause, scroll back, jump to sentence or paragraph beginnings or even next chapter -epubs!!!! I could go on, but I'm not being paid :-p My suggestions for improvement: create a library cover feature like ibooks; allow for highlighting and note taking; remember all bookmarks so readers can return to important sections later. I would happily pay extra for these features.

Matthew Lyon

Deserves 5 Stars But only 3 for now to encourage development to consider implementing one or more of the following additions and fixes: 1) Fix "load suspended" errors; 2) Allow to load large PDF files (1GB+), without "not enough memory error" (perhaps use some kind of virtual memory); 3) Allow importing books and auto bookmark/save progress feature (default). Thanks for this wonderful and highly practical innovation for an app; may you desecrate your competitors. I use the Nook Tab 10.1.

Andrew Gaydenko

The best in it's class The author is fixing reported bugs and is very responsive in customers support.

Waseem Manan

Best Spritz App by far Awesome job! I was curious, is it possible somehow to integrate pictures into the interface? Maybe pause while images occur? Other then that, amazing job!

Sico Ortiz

Excellent App I am using AceReader to learn to speed read and I use Balto to read at more speed than I really do. Excellent app to really develop your speed reading. I recommend everyone interested in learning to speed read to buy the app. It is worth every penny.

John Wilkinson

Started crashing on me Unusable right now.. 3 stars is being nice because the app worked well in the past

Tim Pearson

This is the best speed reading app Complaint; the icons in the menu are really ugly. Happy with my purchase. Definitely back this app up, as the devs are looking to change the base SDK which may remove features.

Marilyn Thorngren

Galaxy Note 4 Having a difficult time loading anything! It says you are being redirected but nothing happens. Very disappointed. I was so hopefull.

Kirill Simin

It's fantastic! It really is incredible. I've never been able to read so fast. What a brilliant app! I'd love to see a progress bar for the whole book. The timer is not very informative. Thank you guys for changing the way I read!

Larry Bilbrey

App is changing to spritz sdk Bought this and on launch it states, do to patents, it is moving to spritz sdk and some features will be disable but they do not know how many. You might want to wait for this new version to see what was lost before buying. I'm gettig a refund for now.

Wei Chen

Nice app. A great way to speed up your reading speed, even when doing reading outside of this app.

Rich Chang

The Best The best speed reading app currently on Android. Thank you for making it.

Richard Carrington

Best I've used so far Easy to use and works well.

Edward Bowers

Better than Spritz!!!

Mauro Serrano

Problems full ver. sharing with Chrome

David Mallen

The Best This is the best speed reading app I've tried (and I've tried a lot of them). It has an intuitive, configurable interface and it really does help you to read faster. Also, the developer is friendly and responsive.

Ma Ox

The best Jerry, the best! 5 stars simply for being the best out of all the other similar apps out there! Kudos to the developer for actually going to the effort to integrate just about everything one might require. I literally spent hours loading up, testing and ultimately uninstalling nearly all of the competing apps before finding this one. All the others are seriously lacking in one way or another, but worse yet, don't seem to be well supported (e.g., with many of their last updates months and months ago)! Not so here. Good job!

Christian Andrew

Amazing. So many formats. Fantastic Best spritz yet well done

Daniel Haskin

Long word splitting is make or break for me and RSVP. You guys have it. Lots of features, great app! With the splitting, RSVP finally feels natural.

Spencer Carter

RSVP Done Right Perfect app for ebooks. This is amazing. Keep those features coming. Highly responsive developer. Great work.

Cory Schnepper

Great! Helps me read my boring political science readings for school. I wouldn't mind having the words come across the screen at a rate you choose. By come across the screen I mean the same way every stars wars movie starts.

Mark Pheterson

Love it! I've been searching though most of the speed reading apps available because I have many saved books I've been meaning to read for a long time now. Most are in pdf form. It works 100% with all formats I've tried so far and has the best features available. I'm regularly using 600 wpm now and normally I'm a relatively slow reader. No complaints, this app wins!

Marek Spaček

Great Work Best speed reading app out there. I would love to see some sort of widget or extension to be able to float for example over the browser window and support for external offline dictionaries (ColorDict or similar)

Christoph Kilian

Missing LOOP button I really love your app! But could you please add a function to loop a text endlessly? I would be very grateful for that! And could you please shoot me message if you're working on it? I would also be happy if you could make it possible to change the vertical position of the words. Thanks, Christoph

Kyle Nesgood

Finally I've been looking for this exact app for over a year! Great RSVP reader with all the search, navigation, and syncing functionality I was hoping for.

Hjörleifur Sveinbjörnsson

Brilliant I have never learned speed reading, but after only few minutes of usage I'm reading English at a 450 words/minute comfortably. And English is my second language.

Kerniel Ferol

Superb reader! Just what I need.

Hao Chen

The Best The features I found very useful: 1. imports PDF and some Kindle files. 2. Allows me to see surrounding text. 3. Allows me to see the entire text too. 4. Many customizations.

Duke Dyer

Speed fluctuates I have it set at 500wpm. It will speed up, stabilize for a time, then slow down almost to a stop. I'm reading an epub. If there is a fix or setting I can change, please let me know.

Kjartan Svanur Hjartarson

The best of its kind by far!

Charles Johnston

BEST speed reader I have tried 3 or 4 other speed reading programs. This one blows away the competition. Thanks Balto!

Justin Zumwalt

Fantastic The fact that you can import your kindle books makes this app awesome!

Caleb Rodgers

So many problems Crashes a lot. Never saves bookmark. Also randomly skips from page to page while reading.

Joshua Lee

The best speed reading app out there. Good price, supports many formats, and great interface. I tested many of these type of apps before choosing Balto. Constantly updated when needed.

Mitchell Cowell

Great app Reading more books now than ever before, great app.

Илья Пронин

Not working Free version was working. But full version get error on start app. Really good program, but I can't use it on my Huawei u9200


Good one. Customization, interface, supported formats, navigation - everything is nearly perfect. BUT this app uses A LOT of buttery.

Alexey Seletsky

Good one! Thanks for the coolest speed reader I've found here!!! Still there some thins to upgrade. It's a little long way through menu to such options like font size and screen orientation. Also it'll be good to have the ability to see the contents of the book. And design... it could be more attractive (especially icon). Anyway thanks a lot. Waiting for updates.)

Leda Leda

!Crashes after choosing Kindle!!! / Oh,fb2! Gets better and better ) Thank you for the portrait mode (easier to hold the smart phone in one hand :)), really appreciated rewind buttons (few similar apps allow navigation in the text), waiting for the floating frame ) --- Just some idea - it's easier to touch the phrase "paragraph n" with the right thumb, so it is more convenient on the right to operate it with one hand.

Александр Ферюков

Great job! Good day. Your app is realy cool. Now with fb2 suppory you are the best! Still wait something like floating mode, in your design) And some russian web sites don't open correct. Maybe there is a problem in reading html tags?

Dave Grossman

Great app - needs work Love the concept. I ride a bus and use it to read on my commute. makes bumping around a little more bearable. I like all the features offered. The UI could be cleaned up a little. My main reason for giving this 3 stars is that the app hangs when I try to load a bookmark. Just freezes and says "parsing text." I hope the developer has the resources to fix this soon.

Colin Barr

Please bring the app back

Kanstantsin Bucha

Best speed reader I found Nice toolset of delay options, long battery live, support of popular formats. And of course it has fast Speed. I like it

Daniel Perkins

Great app, could be better Best e-reader app I have found, but needs the ability to copy/highlight/share text in book mode and to add bookmarks. At the moment I have to switch to another app each time I need to do this.

Samat 94

Absolutely worth it! It is the best ebook out there using spritz, since it offers many features while staying user friendly. I have got an advise for the developers: you can add the option to see the next paragraph as continuation of the current text (in different colour if needed), so that a long pause is not needed to adapt to the next paragraph's beginning.

Kabelo Maponya

Great app. It does what it says its going to do and what else can you ask for?

Nick Korneev

Amazing App I love it just the way it is, very customizable themes. Love the fact that I can even use my own fonts. I never had issues loading files because I convert all filetypes to simply txt in notepad. I will not update to the latest versions however in fear that I might lose out on my preset settings and features.

Tim Pearson

This is the best speed reading app Complaint; the icons in the menu are really ugly. Happy with my purchase. Definitely back this app up, as the devs are looking to change the base SDK which may remove features.

Lawrence Counts

Strong app Trying to find a Speedreading all that does pdf works also.

Thomas G Henry

Updating to 5 stars (from 1) DRM issues aside, this has quickly become one of my favorite apps. Every time I wonder if it does something... it does. Couldn't ask for a better speed reader (well.. Maybe one that circumvented kindle drm..)

Evan Morrison

Great app! The best speed reading app on the android store. Not tied down with a stupid internet service so I can read on the train. Thanks!

Nathan A

Can't import from device Used to be able to explore my device and find files to import, won't let me out of my storage folder now. Uploaded many times before and never had this problem. Otherwise great app

Stephen M. Cormier

Keep notification bar visible like in Moon +Reader? Have been through all settings and emailed developer (with no reply) in hopes of keeping notification area visible while reading. Aside from this, app is perfect. Better communication from devs for paid version of app would warrant 5 stars. Thanks. :)

Ted Curran

Solid Very customizable and stable, works equally well for web pages and PDF files.

Tom J. Byrne

My favourite way to read. I can relax when reading with this app. I more easily get to the meat of a message. It's also be very relaxing to read novels etc. 600 wpm is easy. 750 with comprehension is more of a challenge but I enjoy it.

Mike Pampinella

Great app I love this app. I use it daily, and I have seen results. Its the only reading app you need. One feature that could use improvement is the increments you can move up in the wpm settings. Sometimes a 50 wpm jump is too much at once, so maybe increments of 25 could be better.

Alexander Sverdlov

Loading from kindle not working

Oskar Lorentzon

Best one on the market

Ekadasi Newton

Perfect The free version is fantastic. I use it so much I figured I'd invest $2 and see what the pro offers. I can change font size and position and that alone was worth it.

Aneez Abdulsamad

Good app but.. It is really good and very useful but. Unable to support large PDF files and there any way It can support local language fonts (specifically Malayalam).. Can we add multiple book marks in the same book

Eric Reyes hangs when i change the settings for the # of words to cluster/chunk... Also hangs while its "parsing"? Any advice?

Eddie McAlvain III

Please help! I have used this app on a couple phones but now with a note 5 that does not have an SD card I cannot load any text the emulated folders are empty if I try from the program and if I try to open from my files the phone says their is no program to open the file with. Will make 5 star if fixed. I love this app if it will work again.

Nomos Nomosowicz

Doesnt work on newest android os Can no longer load books. Please fix.

Sam Phelps

Sam Best speed reader one of my favourite apps

Tim Scarfe

Gets stuck parsing webpage Paid for this as though it was exactly what I needed, now it can't parse any webpages in, they all get stuck half way through :( edit: improved (did something) when I reset display settings weirdly, but still having trouble loading large articles. It would be great if it was reliable

Dean Wiseman

It ok. Wish it had better support for Kindle or Google books Not the best at pulling in content. There's only a few shortcut to apps (like kindle) but support seems low. No support for kindles KFX format killed 40% of the books available on my phone and the remaining 60% are not available due to DRM blocking them. Copying and pasting text isn't a very efficient way to get content into the program. Couldn't find any of the google books I've purchased thats on my phone. I hope support improves. Need to make more content available.

Nomos Nomosowicz

Due to the recent update, this app is now working on my Note 5 and has returned to its place as #1 RSVP reader available. No other apps (and I've tried most of them) come even close to Balto. Highly recommended!
