“People who use Velocity, a $2.99 iPhone and iPad app that launched in September tend to go with its default speed of 300 words a minute, says the app’s co-creator Matthew Bischoff. But 400 and 500 words a minute are also popular presets.”
Can our app really turbocharge your reading speed?
Been building up your Pocket and Instapaper queues faster than you can read? Velocity can help you power through them by turning you into a speed reader.
AJ Dellinger wrote a great review of Velocity for DigitalTrends. If you haven’t picked up the app yet, this is the review to read.
Our customers keep getting more awesome, like Bruce Banner turning into the hulk.
We’ve put Velocity on sale for 30% off for one day only. There’s a big snowstorm heading toward the Northeast, and what better way is there to spend a snow day than catching up on your reading list in record time?
Enjoy this discount while it lasts: we don’t often let the weather get to our heads like this!

How To Read Faster Than You Ever Thought Possible
Velocity New Year’s Sale
Learn to macramé. Watch Dexter. Bake your own cronuts. There are so many things you’d love to do, if only you had a little more time.
Here to help is Velocity ($3), a new iOS 7 app that teaches you to speed-read and hence waste less time sloughing through that 15-page New Yorker piece.
It would be awesome if reeder 2 would intergrate velocity directly instead of copying the url or using pocket!
Agreed, we’re all huge fans of Reeder here at Lickability. We’d recommend suggesting this feature directly to Silvio who makes Reeder, by emailing email@example.com and pointing him to our URL scheme blog post.
Hi! I was wondering if you were going to add support for Readability in Velocity? I know the app has just launched, but the lack thereof is kind of a dealbreaker.
Hey! Thanks for asking. A lot of people have asked for Readability support, so we’re looking into it now. If it’s fairly easy to integrate with Readability, I don’t see why we wouldn’t want to add it to Velocity.
But let’s ask you guys. Should Velocity support Readability as a source?
