  • (2019-11-14) Chris Van Hoosier: You guys are doing amazing work, this is easily my favorite chrome extension. Bravo.
  • (2019-11-09) Stefane Guevremont: Perfect
  • (2019-10-13) Christian Genco: What a fantastic improvement from this developer's previous Speed Reading chrome extension, Spreed. I love that I can read faster in the context of the full article instead of just getting flashed a single word at a time—I feel like consistently using this extension would make me a much faster reader even without ShiftReader. The default colors were a little hard on my eyes, and jarring when the rest of my computer is in Dark Mode, but I was able to swap around the colors super easily in the app's settings.
  • (2019-10-13) Kirill Yunussov: Thanks, Troy! I've been needing this. A couple of suggestions for the "tour" - to mention that back arrow will take the cursor back a paragraph, and that space button will pause it. Also - would be good to have a help ("?") link with the rest of the controls on top left, which would show all the keyboard shortcuts - Alt S, Back-Arrow, Space, etc.
  • (2019-10-13) Tony Shu: Fantastic extension. As a college student who has always struggled with slow reading, this is exactly the kind of tool I need to remove distractions and train myself to read more quickly and with focus. Thank you!
