I read pretty well in the traditional way of reading: relatively small type laid out in pages. But I’ve long been interested in non-traditional reading apps and layouts, whether for people with low vision or whose brains work differently. There’s nothing “natural” about any sort of reading. ReadQuick offers a reading interface that struck me as crazy when I first heard it pitched, but maybe it’s crazy like a fox. It shows just one word at a time, at whatever speed you find comfortable.

It includes Instapaper account support, so you can think of it as a one-word-at-a-time alternative to the official Instapaper app.
