ReadQuick has been helping iPad users read quickly for the best part of a year already, but with the latest update to hit the App Store you can now speed-read your way through your articles-to-read list on your iPhone too.

In a nutshell, ReadQuick taps the likes of Pocket and Instapaper to display your saved articles one word at a time – at a pace set by you. It also has a built-in browser that lets you access and save directly to ReadQuick, and tells you how long each article should take to complete based on the stipulated words-per-minute rate.

So in theory, the more often you use the app, the speedier a reader you shall become. ReadQuick is available to download for $4.99 now.
